With the Absolute Arm, it’s all in the design. Design for high measurement productivity, so other manufacturing processes can stay on schedule. Design for practicality, so users can measure in almost any industrial environment. Design for flexibility, to meet the demands of any metrology challenge, anywhere. And flexibility is at the core of the Absolute Arm product range. Flexibility in configuring the arm’s wrist for the needs of the application and the comfort of the operator. Flexibility in swapping probes without having to stop work and calibrate. Flexibility in having measurement results displayed where they’re needed. Flexibility in a product range of 36 different configurations across three types, seven sizes and three accuracy levels. Flexibility in finding the right solution for every measurement need. With the Absolute Arm there’s no need to compromise, no need to settle for second best. Whatever, wherever and however we want to measure, the right choice is right there, by design.



 Built on a platform of advanced technology, the Absolute Arm makes high-accuracy portable measurement effortless. Every part has been designed with practicality, usability and stability in mind. The product of over 35 years of experience in developing articulated measuring arms, it combines a clear picture of the future of portable metrology with the features that users have always wanted to see.


 The unique modular wrist of the Absolute Arm has been specifically designed to make measurement flexible, fast and secure. • Quickly switch between laser scanning and touch probing without interrupting the measurement process. • Pistol grips available in three different sizes – choose the most comfortable fit for the user. • Remove the grip completely to measure hard-to-reach areas such as holes and cavities. • For measurement in the tightest areas even the RS5 Laser Scanner can be removed, and as with all Hexagon probes and scanners, quickly replaced later with no need for recalibration. Whatever the use case, the flexible modular design of the Absolute Arm makes it instantly adaptable and always ready to measure.



The flagship non-contact measurement solution for the Absolute Arm is the RS5 Laser Scanner. It delivers established and reliable 3D scanning technology at high speed. Designed for fast and easy digitization of surfaces and features, whatever the finish or material, the horizontally oriented laser of the RS5 is the definition of ergonomic, easy-to-use non-contact measurement. A wide scan line means parts can be scanned with fewer passes and therefore less time taken. The scanner can be removed from the arm and replaced – even during measurement – with no need for recalibration. All this comes without sacrificing greater laser width to achieve a higher frame rate – with the RS5, all the performance is delivered all of the time: maximum frame rate at maximum laser width. High-speed laser scanning has never been so flexible and accessible.



Combining ultra-high accuracy with small size, the Absolute Arm Compact is designed for optimum results in tight spaces. Featuring an integrated base and a unique counter-weight balancing system for improved ease-of-use, the Absolute Arm Compact can be placed anywhere, even inside a machining center for part alignment. This is high accuracy, guaranteed where it’s needed most. The Compact is also fully compatible with WiFi and battery-operation Control Pack options, as well as the HP-L-8.9 Laser Scanner. Put simply, the Absolute Arm Compact is still the world’s most accurate portable measuring arm, with accuracy achievable to within just 6 microns. It’s an incredible package of advanced portable technology that represents the perfect choice for measuring small-to-medium parts with absolute accuracy.
