Driving Productivity with Metrology-Assisted Assembly

by Ignacio Blanco on March 15, 2018 From Ask The Experts

A significant driver of productivity in large-scale assembly is the ability to compare inspection results of various component parts in real-time, enabling manufacturers to check specifications are met, components will fit together, and to drive proactive rather than reactive corrective measures. 

This video explores how SpatialAnalyzer (SA) metrology and analysis software integrates data across multiple measuring systems to help manufacturers improve accuracy, save time, and reduce wastage of resources. Capable of communicating with Hexagon’s range of portable measuring machines, SpatialAnalyzer streamlines virtual assembly of components by providing 3D graphical interfacing that caters for a wide variety of CAD formats and enhances the user’s ability to inspect to GD&T standards with real-time reporting.
