CMMs - Large

The largest stationary gantry- and bridge-type 3D coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from Hexagon Metrology will give you gargantuan performance. It is not just the capacity of these giants of the world of coordinate measuring systems that leaves all others in the shade: they also impress with robust materials, a stable structure and high accuracy - on the production floor, in a production cell or in the measuring room. The CMMs can act as a standalone system or as a station in a production cell.

The strengths are particularly apparent when they are used for three-dimensional measurements for large components and assemblies in the aerospace industry, defense, ship building and in the power generation industry. If you want to measure a large item with high performance, you will be making the right choice with these coordinate measuring machines.

CMMs - Horizontal Arm

The advantages of the horizontal arm coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from Hexagon Metrology are particularly apparent when inspecting sheet metal parts in the car industry, or other large-volume components in the aerospace, ship, defense, appliance, machinery and railway industries. Their open structure permits direct access to the workpiece and therefore significantly eases loading and unloading. Horizontal CMMs can also be integrated as a component of an automated production line such as automotive body-in-white.

A large number of applications are covered with different designs and varying price-performance classes.

CMMs - Shop Floor

Shop floor conditions may suggest that accurate measurement results on the factory floor would be impossible to obtain. However, using specialized shop floor hardened coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) from Hexagon Metrology, measurement accuracy is ensured even in the production environment. Ideal for lean manufacturing and cellular layouts, automated inspection is possible right at the point of production. Specialized software interfaces allow even unskilled operators to inspect parts with point-and-click ease.

Products in this class maintain high accuracy over large temperature ranges. Thanks to special shop floor features and automatic temperature compensation, performance is not degraded by harsh environmental conditions in production, such as vibration and dirt.

Precision instruments for dimensional measurement 
TESA precision measuring instruments enjoy a strong reputation for quality, reliability and longevity.

For more than 70 years, TESA has distinguished itself in the market through its excellent products, its unique expertise in micromechanics and precision machining as well as its proven experience in dimensional metrology.

The flagship products of the broad TESA instrument range are a true benchmark for the inspection of incoming goods as well as for production workshops and quality assurance laboratories: micrometers, dial gauges, inductive probes and callipers, to name just a few, are often essential instruments.

The TESA brand also is the global market leader in the field of height gauges. Available in different models these robust, easy-to-use and powerful instruments, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, are indispensable for measuring dimensions (heights, diameters, distances, centre distances) and forms (perpendicularity and straightness), and meet all workshop conditions.

Industrial Theodolites & Laser Stations

Cost-efficient measurement with absolute reliability – industrial theodolites and laser stations meet the highest standards even under tough conditions. The extreme measurement volume of over 500 m makes a total station the first choice for the inspection and assembly of very large components.

Industrial theodolites have long since been the standard in the optical compensation of satellites and navigation systems and head-up displays in aircraft. Open-system architecture makes the development of user-specific software a convenient option. The non-contact autocollimation function provides industrial theodolites from Hexagon Metrology with a legendary degree of precision.

Laser Scanners

Laser scanners play a key role in quality assurance. 3D digital capture of shapes and surfaces using lasers is an effortless and precise process. The industry uses laser scanners primarily for the quality control of geometries and surface, but also for reverse engineering, fit and finish, and assembly applications.

A 3D scanner can be quickly and easily attached like a probe to a measuring arm or can work to the highest accuracy as a part of a Laser Tracker System or fixed coordinate measuring machine. Software generates 3D data in real time from the scanner-created point cloud and recognizes deviations from the CAD data immediately.

Non-contact scanners accurately capture millions of points within seconds. The resulting point cloud can then be used to create a CAD model to reproduce, redesign, inspect or archive the part.

Laser Tracker Systems

A long-term standard in industrial metrology: Laser Tracker Systems lead the field in terms of the accuracy, reliability and durability of portable coordinate measuring machines. A laser tracker from Hexagon Metrology is a portable measurement system that relies on a laser beam to accurately measure and inspect in a spherical volume of up to 160 m [525 ft].

Expansion or automation of the system with hand-guided scanners, wireless probes or robot applications open up an enormous number of possible applications. The effect: rapid and highly accurate measurements fed directly into production leading to cost savings and quality improvements.

Multisensor & Optical Systems

Flexibility is the key issue for multisensor technology. Flexibility in the world of metrology means having the freedom of choice between contact and optical measurement – with only one measuring system. A single system is therefore sufficient for the contact and optical measurement of all inspection features on a workpiece.

For the measurement of materials sensitive to the touch, the solution is optical measuring systems. They measure non-destructively and accurately. Thanks to a versatile range of optical measuring systems, we have the right solution for every measuring task.
