New Hexagon Absolute Arms

Our partners over at Hexagon offer an excellent range of portable arms in the form of their Absolute Arm products. This range of portable CMM’s is at the cutting edge of the industry. Here’s why…

Versatility: Metrology equipment is used in many different manufacturing environments and quality processes around the world, from aerospace and automotive to rail and oil and gas. There’s now a growing demand for versatility than there ever has been and Hexagon’s portable systems facilitate this with the ability to easily swap out probes and sensors to suit the specific needs of the application. Automotive exhaust manufacturing is a great example of where a PCMM would be ideal.

Save Time. Guarantee Accuracy: When it comes to swapping probes and sensors, usually, users are faced with having to decide between a reduction in accuracy or productivity. This is due to time lost in potentially having to carry out a recalibration if the probe or sensor isn’t added to the exact same place as the one prior. However, with the Hexagon Absolute Arm range, this isn’t the case. This is thanks to their kinematic joint. The joint was pioneered by TESA (part of the Hexagon group) to ensure swapping probes on standard CMM’s was easy but today, all portable machine solutions from Hexagon come with this kinematic joint as standard.

Due to this repeatability of probe mounting, time is saved and continued accuracy is guaranteed. Measurement software also gets updated automatically following mounting, with the correct dimensional compensations.

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



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 7-Axis PCMM is the flagship product in Hexagon’s range. For high-end portable measurement applications that require tactile probing and laser scanning, this is the perfect solution.
