Hexagon Metrology releases HP-L-20.8 Laser Scanner CMM

June 26, 2014 - Hexagon Metrology announced Probe Laser 20.8 (HP-L-20.8) external laser scanner for use with the ROMER Absolute Arm. It works on complex surfaces and work pieces made of the most challenging shiny materials such as machined, cast, stamped or forged metals, plastics, carbon fiber and many more.

Combining the HP-L-20.8 laser scanner and the ROMER Absolute Arms provides a portable coordinate measuring system with fully-certified scanning system accuracy. The adjustable scanning width of the HP-L-20.8, with a line length of up to 230 mm and a scan rate of up to 150,000 points per second for high-speed 3D point cloud capturing, means surfaces can be captured more rapidly than ever before – no matter what the material. The HP-L-20.8 is certified to the new ISO 10360-8 standard.

The HP-L-20.8 is fully integrated with the ROMER Absolute Arm and does not require additional cables or external controllers thanks to the new feature pack. Manual setting of the laser power according to the surface color or reflectivity is not required as the patented HP-L scanning technology automatically adapts in real time. The multi-sensor technology, seamless change between scanning and probing at the touch of a button, and the repeatable mounting for quick removal and assembly without scanner recalibration makes the new HP-L-20.8 laser scanner the best counterpart for external scanning applications with the ROMER Absolute Arm.
