Inspection & Analysis with Hexagon Portable Scan Arm and Verisurf  Software

The Hexagon Absolute 7-Axis Scan Arm powered by the Verisurf Inspection & Analysis Suite of software, is a complete metrology solution that perfectly equips operators for inspecting and reporting on complex parts and assemblies. When a manufacturer needs something that can do the whole job, and is also efficient, easy to implement and train operators, the scan arm with Verisurf is a solid choice.

For in-process inspection between steps along the production cycle, and for first article inspection or final buy-off, it can all be done with this single solution involving one moderately-skilled operator.

With Verisurf and the Absolute Scan Arm, there are a number of capabilities and efficiencies to be realized:

  • With the hard probe, measure precise datum alignment target locations and critical hole and slot positions.
  • Measure non-line-of-sight, closed features with standard or extended contact probes.
  • Switch to the scanner for super-fast surface profile data capture and complete part coverage including contours, fillets, blend radii, and other exposed features.
  • Switch between probe and scanner with the flip of a switch.
  • Automate the entire inspection for exacting process control and efficiency from part to part.
