Absolute Arm with BendingStudio

Faster tube and wire measurement made portable

Combining BendingStudio software with Absolute Arm laser scanning hardware delivers unmatched speed and flexibility to the tube and wire production industry.

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.
