Hexagon Metrology becomes Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence
Company rebrands to reflect increasing capabilities in data-driven industrial manufacturing solutions12 November 2015
As a leading measurement equipment provider, Hexagon Metrology set out to offer complete quality assurance solutions, building an extensive portfolio of metrology equipment through a combination of innovation and acquisition. The company’s investment in research and development has yielded technology revolutions that first moved measurement from the quality room to the point of production and then brought metrology data into the wider factory workflow. Recent acquisitions, including the CAD/CAM specialist Vero Software and statistical process control expert Q-DAS, have further expanded the business’ offering into broader manufacturing technologies – prompting the decision to rebrand as Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.
“The approach of our business is to listen to customers and evolve to meet their needs, and our rebrand is the next stage of this evolution,” explains Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence President and CEO, Norbert Hanke. “Manufacturers need to work with speed and confidence, which is why they prefer integrated systems and single-supplier solutions that give them the process efficiency they need to compete and lead their industries.
“As Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, we are ideally positioned to support these aspirations. We have moved beyond the isolated data capture of traditional metrology, enabling customers to analyse and leverage data for more informed decision making – sensing, thinking and acting, as we call it. We intend to focus our research on connecting these capabilities to offer customers a closed-loop manufacturing approach where quality drives productivity, as well as continuing to develop our core competencies in dimensional metrology.”
Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division helps industrial manufacturers develop the disruptive technologies of today and the life-changing products of tomorrow. As a leading metrology and manufacturing solution specialist, our expertise in sensing, thinking and acting – the collection, analysis and active use of measurement data – gives our customers the confidence to increase production speed and accelerate productivity while enhancing product quality.
Through a network of local service centres, production facilities and commercial operations across five continents, we are shaping smart change in manufacturing to build a world where quality drives productivity. For more information, visit HexagonMI.com.
