Hexagon Metrology has released a new generation of external laser scanner to accompany the ROMER Absolute Arm. The Hexagon Probe Laser 20.8 (HP-L-20.8) replaces the CMS108 scanner, and will be demonstrated at the IMTS show in September.
New capabilities of the HP-L-20.8 include improved performances on complex surfaces such as machined, cast, stamped or forged metals, plastics, carbon fiber and more. It is fully integrated with the ROMER Absolute Arm and does not require additional cables or external controllers. There is also the option of switching between scanning and probing depending on the user’s needs.
The HP-L-20.8 has a line length of up to 230 mm and a scan rate of up to 150,000 points per second. Cloud capturing for data is also available.
“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. 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” says Stephan Amann, product line manager for Portable Measuring Arms, Hexagon Metrology.
