Hexagon Metrology Co-operates with Olympic Skeleton Team…
Hexagon Metrology has started a co-operation with the UK-based skeleton racing team Bromley Technologies. Bromley Technologies use a ROMER Absolute Arm with integrated laser scanner to optimise sled design for Kristan Bromley, multiple British, European and World Champion, and competitor at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
Skeleton racing is a high-speed winter sliding sport. The athlete rides a small sled, lying face down and head first. Racers regularly reach up to 145 km/h. “The G forces are trying to push your head into the track, so you really need to feel that the sled is an extension of your body”, said Kristan Bromley. “We place huge importance on analysis and simulation, and with Hexagon Metrology, we have found a partner that provides the perfect tool for measuring and digitizing the sled. With the ROMER Absolute Arm, we can scan a sled’s physical characteristics within minutes.”
The Skeleton competitions in Sochi take place between February 13th and 15th, 2014. More information about the ROMER Absolute Arm is available at http://hex.ag/rCxKa, more information about Bromley Technologies can be found at http://www.bromleytechnologies.com/.
