New HxGN NC Measure software greatly simplifies measurement on machine tools

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has launched a new modular software suite, HxGN NC Measure, making it simpler and faster for manufacturers to inspect diverse parts directly on the machine tool.

16 7月 2020

Designed for ease-of-use, the modular HxGN NC Measure suite allows manufacturers to quickly and accurately undertake either routine or complex inspections directly on the machine tool, with users able to capture, report and use data in the way that best suits their individual needs.

Manuel Müller, Product Marketing Manager at Hexagon, says: “Manufacturers are benefiting from advances in machine tool inspection technology to inspect a growing number of parts directly on the machine tool. Hexagon’s expertise in machine tool inspection and metrology software means we’ve been able to lead the way in simplifying machine tool measurement for our customers, including for complex laser-scanning applications.” 

The HxGN NC Measure | Core software package combines a deep understanding of production processes with a highly intuitive interface to make it easy for users to set up and inspect workpieces and create reports that inform rapid decision making.

Additional modules enable operators to perform more tailored or complex inspection tasks and include a ground-breaking module for laser-scanning. 

The HxGN NC Measure | laser module makes it possible to accurately capture point clouds for the entire surface of a clamped part, all while benefiting from HxGN NC Measure’s intuitive interface.

Other modules include HxGN NC Measure | Report for saving and exporting data in multiple formats and protocols. HxGN NC Measure | Best-Fit Pro meanwhile saves time by automating part adjustment to ensure the best fit for the part on the machine tool. 

HxGN NC Measure is initially available for Siemens, Heidenhain, Fanuc and Röders-controls. Designed to be future-proofed, it enables machine tool companies to keep up-to-date with the latest innovations without having to acquire new software skills.
