Hexagon unveils enhanced quality solutions to drive the autonomous future of CMMs

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division launches range of technology to transform inspection workflows for enhanced productivity

21 julho 2020

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has announced the release of several technologies that enable manufacturers to enhance quality processes, coordinate measuring machine (CMM) capabilities, and inspection efficiency.

As the demand for greater levels of inspection automation increase globally, Hexagon’s solutions deliver a number of smart options that help CMM operators shift focus from manual, repetitive work to more value-added tasks, all while maintaining quality throughput.

EYE-D enables production-level users to operate CMMs with ease by automatically recognising a workpiece, aligning it, and executing the right inspection routine. TEMPO, the automated CMM part loading and unloading system, enables lights-out manufacturing, allowing organisations to run entire inspection shifts unmanned.

The Digital Control Center (dCC) offers unprecedented levels of usability in CMM interfacing, enabling operators to quickly access metrology software in a handheld tablet-format from anywhere around the CMM, avoiding the need to switch between computer and jogbox. Included in the solutions is a wireless version of Hexagon’s CMM environmental monitoring tool PULSE, enabling users to receive remote notifications of any significant changes in vibrations, humidity, air pressure, and crash notifications.

“The journey to greater manufacturing automation doesn’t necessarily require a single, costly transformation of technologies and processes. At Hexagon, we are creating solutions that enable manufacturers to make incremental changes that deliver cumulative productivity gains,” says Ingo Lindner, Director Product Line Management Bridge CMMs, Manufacturing Intelligence division, Hexagon. “Hexagon’s new productivity-enhancing CMM technologies’ are the first step for manufacturer’s on the transformation journey towards the smart factory and greater inspection autonomy . Whether manufacturers are looking to increase throughput, reduce measurement cycles, or drive more efficient workflows, these  solutions offer options to increase quality professionals’ confidence that they are making manufacturing smarter.”

PULSE and EYE-D are now available for the NAFTA, EMEA and APAC regions with TEMPO and dCC coming later in the year. More information is available through local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
