Laser scanning arm.

The RCA is a robot CMM arm designed for laser scanning inspection. It offers the automation capability of a traditional CMM and the mobility and part accessibility of an articulated arm. It combines an internal 7-axis articulated arm with an external skeleton driven by electric motors, creating a measuring robot that drives a MMD laser scanner along the programmed motion path. It has an inspection volume of 4.2m. It is capable of accessing inner cavity locations of specimens, such as vehicle body shells. Its automatic execution of repetitive inspection assignments following an identical procedure offers inspection consistency. Metris USA, Rochester Hills, MI
