Hexagon Booth E-5202 showcases Hendrick Motorsports Racecar

Hexagon Metrology Inc. will feature innovations in measurement automation at IMTS (International Manufacturing Technology Show) 2012 being held at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL from September 10-15, 2012. In Booth E-5202, Hexagon will exhibit a full complement of metrology solutions with a spotlight on the new Cognitens WLS400A for automated measurement applications and  PC-DMIS 2012 inspection software. The company will also demonstrate recently released products: ROMER portable arms, Optiv Vision 321, Sheffield and Brown & Sharpe 4.5.4 SF CMMs, and PC-DMIS software.

In Booth E-5202, Hexagon will also showcase an official racecar from Hendrick Motorsports, winner of a record 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championships. Hendrick Motorsports is a longtime user of Hexagon Metrology products for inspection and assembly of auto body, chassis and engine components for both pre-race adjustment and post-race evaluation.

New Product Announcements from Hexagon

At IMTS, Hexagon Metrology will debut the Cognitens WLS400A designed for automated inspection applications. The 3D optical measurement solution can transform a robot into a high-accuracy metrology device. Ideal for the motor vehicle or aerospace industries, the white light based system is used to accurately measure large components, analyze early root causes of potential assembly issues, and lower scrap costs during assembly ramp-up. The manual version of the system, the Cognitens WLS400M can also be utilized for rapid prototype part development, and used to certify holding fixtures and assembly tools.  A demonstration video of the WLS400A can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PDJD0Unu7E.

The WLS400A uses digital stereo vision technology to generate highly accurate 3D data in vibration-prone shop floor environments. Due to the system’s ultra-fast data acquisition rate (less than 10 milliseconds), any vibration in frequencies up to hundreds of Hz do not affect the results. The device's performance is not impaired by variable lighting or temperature changes, making it a robust troubleshooting tool for complex engineering issues during product development or for automated measurement tasks. The 3D measurement solution can also be used to standardize quality criteria across global production facilities and with suppliers

Hexagon will also feature PC-DMIS 2012, the company’s popular CMM software developed for the collection, evaluation, management and presentation of manufacturing data. The software is standard on all Hexagon Metrology measurement devices, and also available on non-Hexagon equipment. Incremental improvements and new enhancements have been added to PC-DMIS 2012, which is used to create, automate and customize inspection routines, and to build lean manufacturing operations. The extensive product line includes PC-DMIS CMM, PC-DMIS NC, PC-DMIS Planner, PC-DMIS Portable, PC-DMIS Vision, PC-DMIS Reshaper, PC-DMIS Gear, PC-DMIS Blade, PC-DMIS Retrofits, and DataPage.
