Hexagon Metrology Launches HP-L-20.8 External Laser Scanner

Published: Thursday, August 21, 2014 - 16:36

(Hexagon Metrology: North Kingstown, RI) -- Hexagon Metrology announced a new generation of external laser scanner for use with the new ROMER Absolute Arm. The Hexagon Probe Laser 20.8 (HP-L-20.8) replaces the successful CMS108 laser scanner, offering improved performance even on complex surfaces and workpieces made of the most challenging shiny materials such as machined, cast, stamped, or forged metals, plastics, and carbon fiber. Hexagon Metrology will demonstrate the HP-L-20.8 in Booth 5202 at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2014) at Chicago’s McCormick Place, Sept. 8–13, 2014.

By combining the HP-L-20.8 laser scanner and the new generation of ROMER Absolute Arms, launched in March 2014, Hexagon Metrology offers its customers a first-class portable coordinate measuring system with fully certified scanning system accuracy. The adjustable scanning width of the HP-L-20.8, with a line length of up to 230 mm and a scan rate of up to 150,000 points per second for high-speed 3D point cloud capturing, means surfaces can be captured more rapidly than ever before—no matter what the material. The HP-L-20.8 is the first laser scanner for the ROMER Absolute Arm to be certified to the new ISO 10360-8 standard.

“With the new external laser scanner HP-L-20.8, Hexagon Metrology provides its customers with the most portable and productive scanning solution for a wide range of applications,” says Stephan Amann, product line manager for portable measuring arms at Hexagon Metrology. “Thanks to the quick and easy handling, the widest line length, and highest scan rate in its product class, the HP-L-20.8 gives its users increased productivity with shorter measuring times.”

The HP-L-20.8 is fully integrated with the ROMER Absolute Arm and does not require additional cables or external controllers, thanks to the new feature pack. Manual setting of the laser power according to the surface color or reflectivity is not required as the patented HP-L scanning technology automatically adapts in real time. The multisensor technology, seamless change between scanning and probing at the touch of a button, and the repeatable mounting for quick removal and assembly without scanner recalibration make the new HP-L-20.8 laser scanner the best counterpart for external scanning applications with the ROMER Absolute Arm.
