Metrology release

Published on: 

RPI, a provider in rotary measurement and angular positioning devices, have expanded their metrology product range with the launch of OctoScan. It is an accurate rotary axis enhancing the measurement capability of portable measurement arms. It enables objects that are larger than the standard reach of the portable arm to be accurately recorded.

OctoScan has wireless functionality to make it portable around a production line. It can be integrated with any measurement arm or portable CMM (coordinate-measuring machine). For example, LK Metrology’s Freedom Arm measuring system, which was demonstrated at Control, had a fully integrated OctoScan via PolyWorks software. Parts can be fixed into place in different ways. Its built-in magnets and multiple threaded fixing holes allow for an element of bespoke fixing.
