Testing the Absolute Arm with Aston Martin Red Bull Racing
“The new Absolute Arm looks great in many ways, from the portability, which is essential for us as we’re taking measurements within a hectic manufacturing environment, to the technology improvements Hexagon has built in that make this new arm faster, more accurate and easier to use than other arms we’ve tried.
Within our inspection portfolio, time and accuracy are key, and it looks like the efficiency of the new RS5 Laser Scanner leads the way in terms of speed of data acquisition and point density.
Arms are being used on a daily basis by our engineers and inspectors, so ergonomics are a vital factor for us. The new modular wrist on the Absolute Arm 7-Axis looks really great – being able to select the best wrist configuration for whatever we’re measuring and whoever’s doing the measuring makes so much sense, and we can’t wait to use it.
The new wrist display and buttons also look like important improvements that will help us increase the productivity of our measurement processes. Placing feedback and enabling access to the most important settings right where we need it is really useful – our Formula 1 steering wheels work on much the same concept.”
