Absolute Arm with BendingStudio
Faster tube and wire measurement made portable
Absolute Arm with BendingStudio brings the speed, quality and portability of 3D laser scanning to meet the challenges of reliably producing shaped tube and wire products. Using one of the high-end laser scanners available for the Absolute Arm as the measurement input tool for the BendingStudio software platform delivers the speed of high-quality 3D laser scanning. Full tube geometry can be captured with only a few quick sweeps of the laser scanner. This speed is combined with the extreme flexibility of portable measuring arm technology, which can be quickly situated in any place at which measurements need to be made.
This speed and portability come without compromise. Absolute Arm with BendingStudio is fully applicable to complex tube and wire formations, including bend-in-bend and freeform, and can easily compensate for deflection in long and flexible tubes. The open bender interface of BendingStudio is configurable for direct data transfer to most CNC benders, allowing for immediate production correction when deviations are identified.
And with the leading technology of the range of laser scanners available for the Absolute Arm, the system can handle tube and wires in a wide variety of materials, colours and surface finishes.
Accurate measurement achievable from malleable freeform tubes to shiny or multi-coloured surfaces with leading laser scanner technology from the Absolute Arm range.
WiFi, battery power and simple set-up take tube measurement to where it needs to be, whether that’s in the quality room or at the heart of the production process.
Absolute Arm technology delivers highly repeatable and user-independent measurement results.
Capture geometry of in situ parts in hard to reach areas with ease using an innovative 3D laser scanner with a maximum measurement standoff of up to 205 millimetres.
Full Scanning System Certified supplied to ISO 10360-8 Annex D.
The well-established BendingStudio platform delivers optimised data handling throughout the tube production and analysis process as well as direct interfaces for all major bender brands, measurement plans for rapid batch measurement, automatic and customisable reporting and easy CAD data import and export.
