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: temperature-stable materials like carbon fibre and sophisticated temperature compensation ensure reliable measurement results every time. With application engineers from Hexagon Metrology at their side, customers from the foundry industry appreciate what makes up the special qualities of the largest metrology group in the world: crucial to this is the correct advice.
