Advanced CMM Solution Designed to Deliver Productivity


The GLOBAL S coordinate measuring machine (CMM) is the first of the Enhanced Productivity Series (EPS), leveraging the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence solution portfolio by combining smart technologies with a focus on a superior measurement performance and increasing productivity. 

The GLOBAL S with Chrome precision level provides superior accuracy at the highest scanning speeds. This offers faster scanning measurements of non-predefined paths together with optimised path trajectories for quicker part-program execution.

GLOBAL S is built on the solid foundation of the highly-successful GLOBAL CMM platform. Optimised for tactile scanning performance and offering best-in-class throughput, GLOBAL S is the ideal solution for all operations requiring higher productivity in dimensional inspection, enhancing applications in the automotive, aerospace, general and precision manufacturing industries.

Developed to execute high-throughput measurement routines, the GLOBAL S provides detailed traceable results and helps reduce operator workload. It also combines both speed and accuracy to offer the fastest tactile scanning performance for a CMM in its class.

GLOBAL S is available with PC-DMIS software, the most widely-used measuring package in the world. For more specific applications, such as the inspection of special or complex geometries and unmatched data evaluation, QUINDOS software with its range of specialised modules is offered as an alternative.

A wide range of tactile scanning sensors and indexable wrists supported by a comprehensive selection of tool changers and styli to suit the most complex measurement applications, including the HP-S-X5 and HP-S-X3C fixed-scanning probing heads, and the HP-S-X1H scanning sensor which can be mounted on an indexing head. A complete selection  of tool changers, stylus options and other accessories ensure the most suitable probing configuration, whatever your application.

About your company
Advanced Vibration Reduction
GLOBAL S patent-pending Compass technology is an advanced vibration-reduction system which guarantees performance accuracy even during high-speed scanning. Combining hardware and firmware solutions, it enables you to maximise throughput without compromising on accuracy. 

Improved Unknown Path Scanning
Thanks to the advanced firmware algorithms of Scan Pilot, GLOBAL S can scan the most complex unknown profiles. Programming and setup times are minimised and even the trickiest workpieces can be scanned quickly and accurately.

Probe Movement Optimisation
The next-generation trajectory-control technology Fly2 Mode automatically optimises the route between measurement points and reduces machine idle times. As a result, the CMM glides smoothly through its movements, cutting program execution times.

Automatic Power Saving
Featuring Eco Mode as standard, GLOBAL S automatically powers down to save electricity during periods of inactivity, improving energy efficiency but keeping the machine ready to go. Operating costs are reduced with no impact on throughput or performance.

Air Saving Function
Eco Mode+ reduces the cost of ownership by stopping the flow of compressed air after a period of inactivity. This function is available on the GLOBAL S CMM model together with Eco Mode, the energy saving capability. Both functions provide ecological benefits giving metrology the green light.

Optional Messaging Lights
The GLOBAL S messaging light option kit integrates LED alert lights into the CMM so you can check machine status at a glance, even at a distance. This means the CMM can be left to measure, allowing you to optimise  time and resource management.

PULSE Monitoring System
PULSE uses a network of sensors to provide real-time monitoring of environmental conditions that could influence the quality of measured data. PULSE records variations in temperature, humidity, vibrations as well as probe crashes and can send automatic alerts when an environmental condition threshold is breached. Information is displayed on an easy-to-understand dashboard to support the fast pace of lean manufacturing environments.
