Mobile Bike Measurement System

In collaboration with the Laboratory of Polymer and Composite Technology (LTC) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Hexagon Metrology has created the Romer Bike Measurement System, a mobile 3D measurement solution fully approved by the International Cycling Union (UCI) for the measurement of bike frames at racing events. The Bike Measurement System is based on the company's portable measuring arm, the Absolute Arm with integrated laser scanner. The system includes 3D inspection software configured for user independent non-contact measurement of bike frame geometry, ensuring total transparency and stability in professional bike racing. The Bike Measurement System is the UCI's approved instrument for checking bike frame legality, irrespective of where the measurement takes place. The scanner gives high performance even on high gloss carbon fiber surfaces and the difficult to reach areas typical of professional bike frames today. During measurement the integrated laser scanner collects 30,000 3D points off the frame every second, allowing the user to create a highly accurate 3D model of the frame itself. Thanks to the Absolute Arm's lack of warm-up time and the software's dedicated eight simple steps, the user can measure an entire bike frame, compare it to its respective CAD model and generate a final measurement report in less than ten minutes.
