Metrology solutions demonstrated at Hexagon-hosted forum

An offline robot cell, designed to automatically measure sheet metal parts in the toughest shop floor conditions, will be on show at a metrology forum hosted by Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.

The WLS400A white light scanning system is one of nine product demonstrations at the event which takes place at the Nuclear AMRC, Rotherham, from September 14-15 2016.

The one-day forum, which follows the same format on both days, also includes guest speakers from Red Bull Racing and the National Physical Laboratory who will talk about time compression technology and 3D optical scanner measurement respectively.

With a broad focus on applications for the aerospace, automotive and general industry sectors, the seminar will also highlight the inspection and reverse engineering capabilities of Hexagon's RA7730SE, its most accurate Romer Absolute portable measuring arm, and HP-L-20.8 scanner.

Other products on display are set to include the Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 and Leica Absolute Scanner LAS-20-8, the latest large volume, high accuracy mobile scanning solution for automotive and aerospace component inspection tasks.

Steve Shickell, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence's regional sales manager, commented:"This forum is a fantastic opportunity to keep up-to-date with highly-innovative scanning and automated metrology solutions as well as learn more about how quality can drive productivity."
