RS-SQUARED Area Scanner
 
The world’s fastest portable measuring arm scanner
Built on a platform of advanced structured light scanning technology, the RS-SQUARED Area Scanner is a ground-breaking 3D scanner compatible with all current generation Absolute Arm 7-Axis systems.
 
The RS-SQUARED is a white light scanner that uses an Absolute Arm system to position large square ‘tiles’ of 3D scan data. This removes the need for the time-consuming application of reference markers or spray, or for complex mechanical processes such as fringe projection that require a stable environment. Up to four data tiles are captured every second, which, combined with a minimal set-up time creates a scanning system capable of generating point cloud data in less time than ever.
 
As with other Absolute Arm scanners like the RS6 Laser Scanner, the RS-SQUARED can be easily removed and remounted at will with no need for time-consuming recalibration processes thanks to an innovative repeatable mounting system. Simply switch to ultra-high-speed area scanning when the application calls for it and switch right back to touch probing or the high-definition laser scanning of the RS6 Laser Scanner in an instant.
 
The RS-SQUARED Area Scanner represents a new direction for portable measuring arm technology, embracing the need for high-productivity by incorporating advanced white light scanning technology. Together with the Absolute Arm 7-Axis, it’s a key part of the ultimate all-round portable measurement solution for medium-to-large sized components.
 
 
Features
  • Scan area
    An extra-large scan ‘tile’, measuring 300 by 300 millimetres, makes the RS-SQUARED an incredibly fast scanning solution by allowing it to cover a larger area faster.
  • Ultra-high productivity
    With up to four data tiles collected every second, the RS-SQUARED Area Scanner is so fast that a surface that would take an hour to scan with a high-quality laser scanner can be digitised in just 10 minutes.
  • Full touch probing
    The retained touch probe functionality of the Absolute Arm ensures that high-detail geometric features can be captured at any time by simply removing the RS-SQUARED from the arm and connecting a probe.
  • Configurable wrist
    The RS-SQUARED has been designed to sit perfectly within the user-configurable modular wrist of the Absolute Arm 7-Axis, following the lead of the flagship RS6 Laser Scanner by being entirely removable and remountable as required, with no need for recalibration.
  • User Feedback
    Data feedback and settings adjustment at the point of measurement is built into the Absolute Arm 7-Axis through its OLED on-wrist display, and the RS-SQUARED is integrated within this concept perfectly with scanner profiles selectable without the need to put down the scanner.
  • ISO Certification
    The full scanning system accuracy of the complete RS-SQUARED Area Scanner and Absolute Arm 7-Axis system is supplied certified according to ISO 10360-8 Annex D.
  • Technological Foundation
    Built upon years of portable measuring arm 3D scanner technology, the RS-SQUARED Area Scanner is the latest in a long line of market-leading scanners for articulated measuring arms, going back to the ROMER Scanners that were paired with the ROMER Arm and Hexagon Absolute Arm and now beyond.
