ROMER Bike Measurement System

Completely portable 3D scanning system for bikeframe geometries.

The ROMER Bike Measurement System is a completely portable 3D scanning system, developed in Switzerland in close collaboration with the UCI (International Cycling Union) and the Laboratory of Polymer and Composite Technology (LTC) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL).

The dedicated measurement software is built on InnovMetric's class-leading PolyWorks® software and using just 9 simple commands it allows you to check the validity of your bike frame against its CAD model in minutes, creating easy to understand checking reports. Just pass the scanner over the frame and the integrated laser scanner collects 3D points from the frame surface. The ease of movement of the ROMER Absolute Arm allows you to check even difficult to reach areas.

Featuring industry proven ROMER technology, the system gives unrivalled non-contact scanning performance, even on highly reflective carbon fibre surfaces. It has been tested extensively to give accurate operator independent results. The ROMER Bike Measurement System is now the UCI's approved instrument for checking bike frame legality, whatever the type, whatever the location.

  1. The laser scanner collects 50.000 3D points per second from the bike frame's surface: an entire frame can be measured and checked in just minutes.

  2. The 3D points are compared to the CAD surfaces and assigned colours according to their distance from the CAD model. The system creates easy to understand checking reports.

  3. The ROMER Absolute Arm's compact design and lightness mean you can take it anywhere.

ROMER Absolute Arm with integrated scanner

This low-weight laser scanner solution comes as a cost-efficient package. No additional cable or controller between the laser scanner and the portable measuring arm, permits the ROMER Absolute Arm's infinite rotation of the main movement axis. Thanks to the perfect balance, the ROMER Absolute Arm with the integrated scanner can be operated with one hand.
ROMER Absolute Arm with integrated scanner: universal, truly integrated and certified laser scanner system.

PolyWorks® Application Software
