Technology foundation ensures quality with ROMER Absolute Arm

Industry in the north-western Spanish province of Asturias has a public source of knowledge at its disposal. To keep the region competitive, the foundation-owned private company PRODINTEC (www.prodintec.com) consults local businesses in novel design, management and manufacturing means. A ROMER Absolute Arm with integrated laser scanner is the quality guarantor in a highly inventive environment.

The mission: wherever Asturian industry intends to improve products or manufacturing and management processes, PRODINTEC stands by to technologically support the transition. With the objective of moving the local industry forward, the PRODINTEC team explores new methods and keeps the knowledge transferred to their customers up to date. Rapid manufacturing and automation are some of PRODINTEC’s work fields, and professional metrology is their key to successful industrial consulting.

They chose a ROMER Absolute Arm with integrated laser scanner as universal metrology tool for both tactile and non-contact measurement.

Rough conditions, robust tool

The ROMER Absolute Arm is in daily use at PRODINTEC. Additive manufacturing (AM) is one of the advanced technology fields Jesús Marrón’s team works on, and the ROMER arm has become an indispensable co-operator for the alignment of a laser sintering machine using the touch probe. Another main application for the measuring arm requires robustness: Inspecting precision parts on a micro milling machine means using a precision instrument with laser scanner under rough conditions. Thanks to carbon fibre tubes and a completely integrated and protected scanner, potentially disturbing factors do not influence the ROMER Absolute Arm...
