Robot and machine calibration
Ensure reliable performance from robots and machinery through calibration and optimisation.
Hexagon provides system solutions for the accurate and comprehensive geometric analysis, monitoring and accuracy improvement of machine tools, measuring machines, robots and structures with a dedicated robot and machine calibration and optimisation range.
Machinery and robots are the stalwart components of major manufacturing operations and are increasingly common in smaller businesses as well. As manufacturing processes become more automated and increasingly autonomous, it is crucial that manufacturers have confidence in process and equipment capability.
When a machine or robot completes a repetitive function, calibration and alignment issues can occur and lead to downtime and scrap as uncalibrated equipment working at high throughput will only deliver waste faster. Robot and machine calibration is therefore a vital part of a smart manufacturing setup.
Hexagon’s dedicated solutions for robot and machine calibration are designed to keep all kinds of factory equipment in optimal operating condition, while global service teams are also on hand to support with equipment maintenance.
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
