Hexagon continues to provide innovative metrology solutions that help the aerospace giant meet their time, cost and quality goals as they ramp up production in Germany.

“After more than 20 years of working with Airbus, we’re very proud to be bringing our latest laser tracker products on board with Airbus’s strategic A320 in Hamburg,” said Stéphane Malet, Airbus Key Account Manager for Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “Our products have so much to offer for big projects in the aerospace industry. With the increasing data capabilities of Hexagon measurement solutions, innovative businesses can build accurate 3D data right into the global production process, delivering key efficiency improvements and letting them achieve the objective of every production manager: getting things right the first time around.”
