The aerospace industry is in transition. Airplanes are getting lighter and faster, so increasingly sophisticated airframe components and assembly processes are being developed. Despite these developments, many quality checks are still being carried out by mechanical checking fixtures and hard gauges.
Hexagon’s NEXTSENSE CALIPRI technology provides aerospace manufacturers with a handheld optical profile measuring solution that can support important tasks like gap, step and countersink inspections to industry standards. Replacing operator-influenced measurement methods with this easy-to-use solution that delivers repeatable results regardless of user saves significant time, increases accuracy and drives productivity in the aerospace assembly process.
