Portable arm 3D measurement example




  • 1.2 m to 3.7m (4 ft. to 12 ft.) spherical working volume
  • Accuracy from 0.016mm (0.0006 in.) to 0.060mm (0.0024in.)
  • Temperature Sensors: Allow the Arm to react to thermal variations for maximum portability and accuracy
  • Internal Counterbalance: Provides comfortable, stress-free usage
  • Articulating measuring arm


CAD-based inspection
Quickly identify deviations from nominal CAD data with 3D metrology
Dimensional Analysis
Capture measurements quickly, do inspections and ensure proper tolerances
First Article Inspection
Ensure first article parts meet design specifications and tolerances
In-Process Inspection
Inspect parts in-process, directly on or produce them directly at the machine
Incoming Inspection
Prevent out-of-tolerance parts from reaching assembly with incoming quality
Reverse Engineering
Create fully surfaced CAD models of design concepts or replacement parts
Machine Calibration
Ensure machines are calibrated and operating at optimal performance
Increase machine performance and reduce downtime caused by misalignment
Tool Building & Setup
Verify dimensional accuracy of tooling
