Hexagon Announces New Flagship Absolute Arm Range

The Absolute Arm Range of Portable Measuring Arms Undergoes Its Biggest Modernization in a Decade

Eight years after the launch of the first ROMER Absolute Arm, Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has unveiled its new Absolute Arm range. A ground-up redesign has seen one of the world’s most recognizable portable measuring arms modernized to meet the needs of today’s metrology users, with a key focus on improved usability and versatility without compromising on speed and accuracy.

A standout feature of the new Absolute Arm is its modular wrist design. This allows both the RS5 Laser Scanner and the pistol grip to be completely removed, facilitating easy probing in tight spaces. When reattached for laser scanning applications, a variety of grip sizes are available to ensure a perfect fit for every user. The new wrist also now features a display screen that allows for measurement result oversight, profile switching and calibration right at the point of measurement, reducing time spent switching attention between the arm and its control computer.

“Over the last eight years we’ve received a lot of positive and constructive customer feedback, and hopefully people will see how this has informed our design,” says Anthony Vianna, Product Manager for the Absolute Arm range. “Many customers told us they needed to measure in smaller and smaller spaces, like cavities or inside complex fixtures, and it was that sort of direct-from-the-user intelligence that drove us to create the most compact scanning configuration on the market today.

“We examined everything about the arm: how people were using it; how users measure different parts; how they move their arm around their facility; how the arm communicates with them; how to make the arm more serviceable. And that process is what brought us to where we are today – with a new arm that offers improvements in every single area, across accuracy, speed, efficiency, weight, serviceability and versatility.”

This new Absolute Arm range retains all the features that made the previous generation of ROMER Absolute Arm systems so successful. These include the proprietary Absolute Encoders that eliminate referencing and warm-up times and diagnostic reporting, as well as low-friction rotating grips and a unique counterweight system that facilitate easy movement and measurement. Also notably still present is the capacity to measure at full speed without a reduction in accuracy.

The new Absolute Arm models are also available in a 6-axis version designed for dedicated probing applications. Within this category is the new Absolute Arm Compact, which assumes position of the previous ROMER Absolute Arm Compact as the most accurate portable measuring arm in the world, with accuracy now to within just 6 microns. The full Absolute Arm range is available across seven sizes, with measurement radiuses from 1.2 to 4.5 meters, and three levels of accuracy, resulting in 36 unique arm configurations – an arm for every application.

The complete Absolute Arm range is now available to order from local Hexagon representatives around the world

Have you seen the new look for the GROB company website?

The new GROB homepage has been online since the beginning of September. We have spoken to the GROB Marketing Manager, Ms. Marion Immerz, about the reasons for the revamp and the importance of electronic media for GROB.

Ms. Immerz, as GROB went online with a completely new homepage in 2012, it was one of the trendiest websites in the "Tool and mechanical engineering" sector. What are your aspirations now for the new website?

Marion Immerz: Of course, we have set ourselves ambitious goals with the relaunch. We very much wanted the homepage to have a modern and graphically complex design again. Most importantly, we want to increase the visitor numbers to our website through a more attractive presentation of the topics and simple user guidance.

Also, our products and the current topics at GROB should become even more prominent, so that those visiting the website can find the information they want in various ways.

What were the goals for the website relaunch?

As well as modernizing the design by enhancing the graphic and image elements, the focus was very much on making technical improvements. This included the responsive adapting of all content and the perfect display on all browsers and devices. We also wanted to offer our visitors various ways to inform themselfes about the GROB product range. The loading time, security and accessibility of the homepage were also optimized. We hope that all these measures will improve usability and dwell time, increase visitor numbers and create a more powerful presentation compared to the competitors. From a company perspective, it was also about improving the way the future corporate identity is depicted.

What's new about the 2018 GROB website?

The modern design and a generous text/image language stand out immediately, of course. Alongside these design elements, it was especially important for us to highlight the new developments and changes within our company and to its products. When we went online in 2012 for example, topics such as Industry 4.0, digitalization or electromobility were rather like peripheral issues in our company. This already changed dramatically at GROB a few years ago. Today, these topics stand alongside the traditional system and universal machining center business as key topics and were finally given the recognition they deserve when the homepage was relaunched.

Which is the main target group you want to reach with the GROB homepage?

Our target group is widely spread. Of course, we are focusing on our customers, both repeat as well as new customers from the various sectors. Through our homepage, we would also like to reach applicants, banks and also our own employees and report on the latest developments in our company.

You also mentioned applicants. What is the online application procedure like at GROB?

Our "Career" section takes you directly to our current job vacancies, sorted by the GROB sites worldwide. Depending on the site, the potential candidates are shown vacancies sub-divided into company areas. The job is directly linked to the applicant portal, allowing the potential applicants to upload their application directly to our Human Resources department, which guarantees quick processing of the application documents.

What are the other highlights of the new GROB homepage?

Other highlights of the new GROB homepage are our landing pages on each product with their detailed, technical information, application examples, animations and films. The overview of all services, from 24/7 support, material supply, machine inspections through to customer training is also interesting. In the "News" section, we report on the latest developments at GROB. There is now also an intuitive site search with detailed contact information and directions.

Which social media does GROB use and how important are they for the company?

GROB concentrates on the most important social media for the industry such as YouTube, WeChat and the IndustryArena platform. Interested parties can find the latest machining videos, machine information and news articles on the company. The platforms also offer the chance to link information to our website to achieve a broader reach.

Which other electronic media does GROB use?

In fall last year, the new GROB4Care webshop went online at the EMO. This webshop provides GROB customers with parts lists and drawings, as well as customer-specific information such as the current availability of spare parts at the GROB sites. This webshop is also linked to our new GROB website so that the customer can reach all media centrally via our homepage.

INDEX to Focus on Overcoming the Skilled Labor Shortage at PMTS 2019

INDEX will use PMTS 2019 to address how manufacturers of precision parts can harness advanced technology to achieve continued growth despite the industry's ongoing shortage of skilled labor. "The company will be showcasing its iXcenter integrated robot cell in conjunction with a TNL20-11 Swiss-type lathe, as well as demonstrating how the flexibility of its MS-16 multi-spindle lathe can be applied to offer a superior alternative to cam-driven machines," said a company spokesperson.

The TNL20-11 features 11 linear axes, a frontworking attachment with six stations, an autonomous counter spindle and two turrets, each with eight stations providing up to 12,000 RPM and 2.0 kW of power. The TNL20-11 can apply up to four tools simultaneously, and the lower turret can be equipped with a backworking attachment capable of allowing independent machining of the rear of a part. The machine offers identical, twin liquid-cooled spindles with up to 10,000 RPM, 5.5 kW of power and 17.2 Nm of torque.

When integrated with the iXcenter robot cell, the TNL20-11 becomes even more productive. With vertical pallet storage offering 28 slots, this cell uses an articulated arm to load and unload parts and can incorporate secondary process operations or a 3-D measurement device. This increases the throughput potential of the machine without requiring a corresponding increase in operator intervention.

The MS16 uses six independent spindles, each assigned two cross slides, one that can travel in both the X and Z axes and a second that can travel either in the X-axis or Z-axis. Performance is further enhanced by the ability to perform C-axis machining in every spindle position and a highly dynamic synchronous spindle with short acceleration and deceleration times. The machine incorporates INDEX's unique W serration to allow for short changeover times.

At PMTS 2019, the MS16 will demonstrate the machining of three parts traditionally run on cam-driven machines. "While the older technology has traditionally been viewed as the fastest possible way to produce simple, high volume parts, INDEX will showcase how multi-spindle technology can achieve comparable cycle times. The MS16 also offers the benefit of being fast and easy to changeover, providing a stark contrast to cam-driven machines, which require a high degree of skill and significant amount of time changeover," said the spokesperson.
