Software for all your Metrology requirements
Hexagon Metrology is the largest software developer in the metrology industry and offers a wide range of in-house developed, individually customizable software packages that deliver intelligent and effective acquisition, analysis, management and presentation of collected data.

Hexagon Metrology produces the world’s most popular dimensional metrology software package, which offers many modules beyond its core offering for CMMs and will interface to vision machines, portable measuring arms, laser trackers, CNC machines, as well as devices that are “non-Hexagon Metrology” brands. Specialty packages for measurement of gears, blades and other specialized geometry are also available.

Third party software partners provide additional specialized software packages for some Hexagon Metrology devices, as a complement to our in-house product offering.


The EMS product suite is a tightly integrated family of software products with one focus: to give you the ability to effectively collect, evaluate, manage and present the information coming from the manufacturing operations.

CAD CAM Software

CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) refers to computer software that is used to both design and manufacture products. Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of computer systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design. CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation, and to create a database for manufacturing. Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software is used to control machine tools and related industrial machinery to automate the manufacturing process. CAM enables digital design transfer from concept to reality.

Software for 'On Machine Tool' inspection

In the majority of businesses, scrap and re-work are the primary causes of lost time and avoidable costs. The good news: scrap and re-work are often the result of problems that are easy to solve.  The trick is to identify these weak spots - with the aid of metrology software for CNC Probes such as PC-DMIS NC.

As a result PC-DMIS is conquering the world of CNC manufacturing. PC-DMIS NC software products are advanced, process-internal measuring systems for CNC machines. They monitor all processes while the parts are still on the machine. As a result measuring in real-time becomes a reality and you can identify all weak spots very quickly
