Hexagon Metrology Recognized by Leading University for Contribution to New Manufacturing Solutions Laboratory

CMM Technology to support Joint Research Between Industry and Academia

Feb 10, 2015 -- Hexagon Metrology today announced it was recognized at the dedication ceremony of the new Siemens Energy Large Manufacturing Solutions Laboratory at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). A select audience was introduced to the newly established laboratory within the University’s Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC). Hexagon Metrology was recognized for their four year loan of a high speed, high precision Leitz PMM-F 30.20.16 coordinate measuring machine (CMM) to the university. The new measurement system, housed in the Hexagon Precision Metrology Facility within the laboratory, is a key component to further support the collaboration of industry and academia for large-scale precision manufacturing. The technology partnership also symbolizes Hexagon Metrology’s commitment to develop the next wave of engineering talent to advance manufacturing industries.

The university’s Leitz CMM is one of the largest in the world and can measure components up to 3 x 2 x 1.6 meters in size (9.8 x 6.6 x 5.25 feet) with a table load of 8,000 kg (17,637 lbs.). The CMM is the ideal inspection solution for high-accuracy measurements of medium- to large-sized work pieces and gears.

Angus Taylor, President and CEO of Hexagon Metrology, Inc.  stated, “In today's highly competitive world, manufacturers are in a constant state of transformation to optimize their operations. It is an enormous challenge, so when an opportunity for close collaboration presents itself, especially with prestigious partners such as Siemens and UNCC/EPIC, we are very excited to participate, learn and help to develop new methodologies.”
