Quality control, inspection, on-machine testing, reverse engineering, virtual assembly and 3D modelling with the Absolute Arm.
我将强调绝对臂是系统的轻度，它对不同情况和环境的适应性及其非常直观的软件。David Sánchez is the head of the 3D Engineering department at INDAERO and is one of the company’s key experienced users of the Absolute Arm system, applying it to “check tools and final parts, and also to check all types of machinery”.
One of INDAERO’s main objectives is to minimise costs and production times. They consider it very important to take into account every last detail so that everything fits within the established requirements. The Absolute Arm model they are using guarantees even lower tolerances than those required for their work (touch probing measurement to within 0.051 millimetres) and complete flexibility.
“What I would highlight about the Absolute Arm is the lightness of the system, its adaptability to different situations and environments and its very intuitive software,” Sánchez explains. “The quality/price ratio is phenomenal, and we’ve also had a very close after-sale experience. The service and training offered by Hexagon are very good”.
The Absolute Arm range of equipment allows metrology to be placed directly in the manufacturing environment, where process improvements are most beneficial. INDAERO have the option to make use of almost 100 types and sizes of probe sensor tips with their Absolute Arm, including straight sensors, angled sensors, touch-trigger sensors and infrared tube sensors, all in various lengths and measuring tip diameters. This is exactly the type of flexibility demanded by a versatile and progressive business like INDAERO that is always just around the corner from entirely new commercial opportunities and an entirely new range of application challenges.
Sánchez and his colleagues have been incredibly satisfied with the way the Absolute Arm has affected their business, with INDAERO experiencing very positive results since the incorporation of this new portable measurement system. “The implementation of the Absolute Arm has allowed us to open up new market opportunities and reduce delivery times to the customer considerably”.
