Automated measurement: why the quality process is the best place to begin lights out manufacturing

By 2026, it is estimated that 52% of all manufacturing will be performed by machines. To get there, many manufacturers have considered lights out manufacturing as a solution. However, the perceived scale of the required transformation means that the road to getting there is often seen as expensive, time consuming and difficult to implement.

Here at Hexagon, we believe that digital transformation can be a step-by-step process achieved over time with cumulative efficiency gains. In this webinar, we will look at how you can begin your lights out operations within the quality department. We surveyed our customers and found that the most challenging part within the measurement inspection process revolves around part setup. We see this especially in our customers that have frequent part measurement routines and setup changes on the same CMM.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why lights out manufacturing is important (especially in the quality department)
  • What to look for when evaluating a solution
  • How to increase CMM utilization while reducing operational costs
