Accuracy At The Service Of Geotrilho Project Engineering
The efficiency of the technology measuring processes from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, their technical training and proven effectiveness in the field of support, become available for Topographic and Geographic Engineering through projects from Geotrilho, a powerful Portuguese company located in Barreiro, a few kilometres from Lisbon (Portugal). Geotrilho provides services in various areas of the civil construction sector and public works projects, and combines the Leica Absolute Tracker AT402 and Leica B-Probe systems to carry out precision surveys.
“Wiener Linien” is the public transport company running the trams of Vienna and they’re involved in extensive track and vehicle construction too. Components of all descriptions are repaired or replaced and also manufactured from new. The necessary precision and documentation is ensured by measuring on the machine tool using touch probes and 3D Form Inspect software from m&h.
3D Measuring in Window Production for Luxury Yachts
The manufacturing of windows for top of the range yachts is very demanding as the windows are curved around multiple axis with changing radius. For measuring the shape and dimensions of a window frame, the mobile 3D industrial 3D measuring system DPA is the ideal solution and it has proven its suitability in practice.
ALSTOM in Salzgitter, Germany, is one of the leading suppliers of complete railway solutions and delivers motor units, wagons and locomotives as well as state-of-the-art control and monitoring systems. In order to achieve a higher fitting accuracy in the production of front FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) hoods and in car lining, Alstom makes use of the non-contact measurement system DPA from AICON. Alstom particularly appreciates the unlimited mobility of the system and its flexible application possibilities.
Gas turbines with dimensions of up to 13 meters in length, 5 meters in height and weighing up to 400 tons: components of this magnitude are the core business of the Siemens factory in Berlin-Moabit. From here, the high-tech components are delivered to power plants around the world where they must meet the highest requirements. Extremely high combustion temperatures, large centrifugal forces as well as vibrations and transient loads - the gas turbines are exposed to highly demanding operating conditions. Exact dimensional accuracy is therefore of prime importance in the production of gas turbines and their components. Steel components must be machined evenly in order to ensure maximum stability. The data for the CAD comparison is obtained with AICON's MoveInspect DPA.
Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 monitors cutting of wind turbine tripods
Many 3D cutting jobs worldwide are done through HGG machinery. Founded in 1984, HGG is the world’s only company fully devoted to steel profile cutting providing both tailor made machinery and knowledge to the highest standards. The machines are sold worldwide to leading companies in the offshore, steel construction, process piping, shipbuilding and other industries.
The software application NC Gage from m&h finally provides measuring functions on machines with controls from Fanuc and other Japanese manufacturers. In the past it was necessary to time-consumingly undertake inspection manually or on other machines, a process that often involved the risk of errors.
Flexible Laser Tracker System Facilitates the Processing Of Large Cast and Steel Components
At the DMR Produktionsgesellschaft mbH in Rostock there blows a fresh wind: previously, traditional measuring methods which were used had limitations; success is now guaranteed with the Leica Absolute Tracker AT901 and Leica T-Probe. Now when the component can‘t get to the CMM, the CMM will go to the component.
Laser Tracker-Based Inspection of Machine Tool Components
When a customer of Talleres de Guernica’s asked for a precision chuck with 7 m diameter, the Spanish machine tool company designed a manufacturing process based on permanent quality control. With the Leica Absolute Tracker AT401, new business opened up.
Maximum Safety in Public Local Passenger Transport
In order to obtain a reliable database for the bogies of its new tramways the Innsbrucker Verkehrsbetriebe und Stubaitalbahn GmbH has purchased a ROMER Absolute Arm. This mobile measuring arm not only provides the company with data for its guarantee claims, it also appeals because of its high measuring accuracy and because it is straightforward to use.
Points and forms Leica Absolute Tracker AT 401 at the Service of Mould Production
Corima Technologies capitalises on significant knowledge on casting equipment and the production of associated complex components. The company has specialised in electroforming, that is, a nickel or copper electrodeposit to obtain a form. This electrodeposit therefore consists of forming a very thick metallic deposit on a model with the aim of obtaining a mould or a technical component.

PES (UK) Ltd provides high quality engineered products and materials to global industries, along with specialist installation and design services. Operating in fields such as construction, formula 1, engineering, aerospace, printing, energy (onshore & offshore), automotive, rail, scientific and defence industries since 1979.
Power 3 Precision thanks to the Hexagon Metrology Retrofit
Founded in 1902, LUFKIN Industries has been specialised in gearing for industrial applications for more than 80 years. Its global reputation as a manufacturer of highly reliable material is completed by its customer service long-renowned for being quick and efficient.
Radio Signals for Reliable Precision of Large Parts
On large machining centres and milling machines, the probe signals must be able to overcome large distances without delay and be transmitted from the interior of workpieces. At Bomacon, touch probes with wireless data transmission by m&h are proving themselves in daily use.
