Ease-of-use was at the heart of the design process for the Absolute Arm range. User feedback told us that a more ergonomic, more usable arm was increasingly important to users, so our engineers focused just as much on increased usability as they have on maintaining our reputation for high-end accuracy.
Lightweight and robust construction materials make the arm easier to articulate, as do infinite rotation grips at key points of the arm and a unique Zero-G counterbalance system. With our Absolute Encoders the arm can be set up or repositioned without warmup or encoder referencing – it’s just a case of switch on and start measuring, with no complications.
The configurable modular wrist makes measurement easier, whether it’s a 3D scanning or touch probing application. The arm’s pistol grip is interchangeable for one of three different sizes, or even completely removeable, for easier access to cavities and other hard-to-reach measurement areas. Each of the 3D scanners that is compatible with the Absolute Arm 7-Axis
is also easily removable for easier handling when not scanning, as well as being remountable with no calibration, making switching between measurement functionalities simple, even within the same measurement session.
When it comes to making accurate measurement easier for small-to-medium sized applications without compromising on portability, there is simply no other choice than the Absolute Arm – and that’s by design.
