When it comes to high-precision measurement in a three-shift operation, slow processes and laborious conventional measuring technology can strain patience, effectiveness and efficiency. With a quantum leap in measuring technology, the traditional Swabian company Stihl has now significantly accelerated the quality testing of crankshafts and connecting rods at their main factory in Waiblingen, Germany. They use the Leitz PMM-C 3D coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and highly parameterised software which enables operator self-checking, even with complex measurements.
Distinguished bodywork design combined with a stylish interior and enhanced engine performance at the highest level: This is the quality commitment mission of the famed German automobile tuning company Mansory.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence will exhibit solutions for virtual verification and physical inspection together at formnext 2017, demonstrating how information technology solutions can be used to drive process optimisation and improve the quality of parts produced using additive manufacturing techniques.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence today announced the extension of its HTA high throughput and accuracy solution range to ultra-high accuracy coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). The technology package is designed to integrate dimensional inspection more effectively into the production process by reducing measurement cycle times and providing rich data sets.
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced the launch of the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960-SR, a lower-budget addition to the popular AT960 range of laser trackers. Only available as part of a bundle offer with one of Hexagon’s leading laser scanner products, the AT960-SR is designed for applications with smaller measurement volume requirements that still demand the unbeatable speed and accuracy performance of Hexagon’s flagship laser tracker line.
