The Expert's Desk: Every Space on Your Manufacturing Floor Matters

by April Lemois on February 23, 2018 From Ask The Experts

If you work in manufacturing, you understand the importance of space utilization. At Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, we are always looking for new ways to optimize your workspace. One way in which we do that is through your computer workstation. You know, the stationary workstation covered in engineering documents and reporting documents along with the hardware and wiring that connect to your CMM’s controller.

Extension DeskWe looked at our current workstation setup and found that it did not offer customers the flexibility needed for use on a production floor. With that in mind, we created a high-quality ergonomic and movable operator workstation, designed specifically for accommodating the computer and probe electronics equipment. With programmable adjustable height settings and a locking cabinet to secure all PC and controller peripherals, the workstation is ideal for both the metrology lab and shop-floor environments. If part programming near the CMM is critical, or more desk space is needed for prints, the desk extension attaches securely to the operator workstation while maintaining the motorized adjustable height functionality.

Today the workstation is available standard with every GLOBAL S CMM in North America and EMEA. For availability in your region, contact your local customer service representative today.
