Portable arm CMMs are one of the most accurate ways to measure a large component in three dimensions; with full fixed CMMs probably being the most accurate. Portable arm technology has come a long way since they were invented over 20 years ago and now include features such as absolute encoders, carbon fibre tubes and WiFi communications making them truly portable, highly accurate and able to achieve a high degree of repeatability.
Our range of portable arm CMMs come from two sources: the Master3DGage, a 1.2m measuring volume 6-axis system from Verisurf Software as well as the EVO range of portable arms from Italian-producer – RPS Metrology; with their complete range of six and seven axis arms with measuring volumes starting at 1.2m and up to an incredible 7.0 metres! The largest in the industry.
The latest edition to the RPS Metrology range, the new EVO-X is a fully-integrated laser scanner and seven axis arm with incredible accuracy, high scan rates and resolution – at a very affordable price point.
