Capture dimensional data for quality control and analyse results to improve manufacturing processes.
Dimensional analysis is a critical science that underpins manufacturing from design to production and quality assurance. Hexagon’s metrology hardware and software solutions enable manufacturers to compare part dimensions to specifications and use the information to improve quality and performance.
In the age of smart manufacturing, dimensional analysis is taking on a new and increasingly important role in the product development process. Use of metrology devices to capture dimensional data now goes beyond simple quality checks and offers the potential to actively improve designs and autonomously correct manufacturing processes.
Analysing quality data to its full potential offers valuable insight for decision-making. Smart manufacturing needs dimensional analysis to bridge the gap between the real and virtual and provide truly digitalised processes.
Hexagon’s metrology portfolio includes all major sensor technologies and metrology hardware: hand tools, coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), portable measuring arms, laser trackers and 3D optical scanners. We also develop an extensive range of 3D metrology software, CT analysis software and statistical process control (SPC) solutions, enabling manufacturers to easily capture data and gain insights that support better decisions.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
