Metrology-grade rotary axis enables objects larger than the reach of your Portable Coordinate Measuring Machine (PCMM) to be measured by increasing its effective measuring volume.

The purpose of OctoScan is to increase the measurement capacity and capability of the PCMM. OctoScan is compatible with all manufacturers’ measurement arms using an alignment macro.

OctoScan is intended for high accuracy metrology applications in quality control, reverse engineering or 3D modelling.

When integrated with your PCMM OctoScan gives you the following benefits by simply and accurately rotating the work piece:

  • Drives efficiency – Up to 40% more productivity with full access to part using one setup
  • Improves capacity – Increase measurement volume of your arm
  • Enhances accuracy – Calibrated metrology grade rotary table for ultimate precision
  • Ergonomic design – Eliminate accidental part movement and user fatigue from over reaching
  • Speedy set up – Wireless, portable and easily integrated with measurement arm
  • Universal – Compatible with all measurement arms and PCMM’s
  • Work holding – Secure parts with a choice of built in magnets or threaded fixing holes

A uniquely positioned and calibrated Reference Point System (RPS) on the table top enables any 3D metrology software such as Polyworks or Verisurf to assist in controlling part dimensions by using their location accessed via the simple alignment macro.

The table top is rotated about the axis for each scanning run and re-referenced via the RPS to enable the measuring arm to access any part of the work piece. The software determines the location of the part via the RPS system and aligns measurements together accordingly.

Calibrations follow RPI’s QD12-100 Calibration Notation and Procedures and conform to ISO230-1, 2, 7
