Applications
Aerospace

Over the years, industrial metrology has become an integral part of aerospace manufacturing processes, for OEMs and big industry players alike. Thanks to their large measurement volume, laser tracker systems are used for inspection, tooling, part mating and reverse engineering tasks, just to name a few. Coordinate measurement machines (CMMs) of all sizes are used in inspection and scanning applications with prismatic parts, achieving single-micron ...

Foundries

Heat, dust and vibrations are everywhere in a foundry. These factors are often the natural enemy of precision devices. The product developers at Hexagon Metrology are aware of the rough environmental conditions and know the special requirements of foundries. In these difficult industrial environments components with very large diameters also have to be accurately measured to a hundredth of a millimetre. No problem for Hexagon Metrology systems: ...

Heavy Industry

A heavyweight player for a heavyweight industry. Traditional heavy industries operate on a scale of their own when it comes to size and weight. Construction, metal processing and defence industries place great emphasis on precision. The heavy loads carried by cranes, excavators, crawlers and metal components mean that their dimensions must be accurate to a fraction of a millimetre. Whereas some measuring instruments capitulate in the face of a heavily ...

Pulp & Paper

The keyword here is volume: a 20-roller paper-making machine is 20 to 40 m long and weighs in at about 250 tonnes. On the other hand, the paper running through it is extremely thin. When such sheer mass meets the finest paper the results depend on having everything correctly aligned and a first-class measuring system. Everything under one roof: Hexagon Metrology supplies measuring systems complete with the correct accessories, training and service.

Railway

The world rail speed record is racing ahead at an unimaginable rate. In April 2007 a French high-speed train reached a speed of 575 km/h - or put another way: it travelled almost 160 metres each second. In these times of great mobility, the hour of modern passenger  and goods transport has arrived. Production is increasing, under great time pressure with extremely high quality requirements to achieve performances in the million kilometre range. With ...
