Expanded measurement system for the ROMER Absolute Arm
Designed for a single moving arm or a multiple arm array, the unique ROMER GridLOK solution delivers enhanced measuring accuracy and productivity across a massively increased measurement arena.
Simple to use and more accurate than basic leap-frogging extension systems, ROMER GridLOK redefines what’s possible with portable measuring arm technology.
Maintain ROMER Absolute Arm accuracy when measuring multiple or larger parts across a defined grid area (4 m x 6 m up to 60 m x 60 m).
Eliminate error accumulation from ‘leap-frog’ measurements, maintaining uniform accuracy through the entire expanded measurement volume (accuracy 0.05 mm plus accuracy of arm in use for typical 4 m x 6 m system).
No programme interruption or user input required when repositioning, even during a measuring sequence, greatly minimising training requirements.
Avoid the limitations of fixed arm length – measure and align parts ordinarily out of reach of the ROMER Absolute Arm.
- Customised grid network of reference targets installed in the ground or mounted on steel plate to define expanded measurement space.
- Reference target positions certified by high-performance Leica Absolute Tracker upon installation – a one-off operation creating an extended global 3D coordinate system.
- The ROMER Absolute Arm aligns to the extended coordinate system by measuring any three reference targets with the touch probe.
- Further measurement from alternative arm positions requires only repeating this step from the new position – the number of measurement positions is unlimited.
