Portable Arms From Hexagon

Did you know that portable measuring machines allow you to measure directly within the manufacturing environment?

An increasingly popular coordinate measurement technology allowing users to both boost productivity and cut costs, portable measuring arms or PCMM’s have become a mainstay for manufacturing companies across a diverse range of sectors, including aerospace and automotive.

Portable arms offer incredible versatility and flexibility when compared to standard CMM machines. The key benefit being the ability to take the measurement device out onto the shop floor – instead of having to remove components from the manufacturing environment and bring them into the lab.

Status currently has 2 of the very best portable measuring machines available from our strategic partner Hexagon MI’s new Absolute Arm range. Take a closer look below:

7-Axis – The All-in-One Solution for Portable 3D Measurement

Ease of measurement and usability are two core elements that have been factored into the design of the 7-Axis Arm to minimise user fatigue.

6-Axis: The Portable Measuring Arm Optimised for Probing

The 6-Axis Hexagon Absolute Arm is specialised for high-accuracy touch measurement but also provides an option for entry into 3D scanning via compatibility with the HP-L-8.9 Laser Scanner.

The 6-Axis machine will still comfortably deliver increased productivity for your manufacturing facility.
