Hexagon Metrology Becomes Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence

Published: Thursday, November 12, 2015 - 16:16

(Hexagon: North Kingstown, RI) -- In a move to reflect its growing expertise and solutions for integrated industrial manufacturing, global industry leader Hexagon Metrology has rebranded to become Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. The change also aligns the business more closely with Hexagon’s overall strategy to offer software-centric information technology solutions that improve quality and productivity across entire industry workflows.

As a leading measurement equipment provider, Hexagon Metrology set out to offer complete quality assurance solutions, building an extensive portfolio of metrology equipment through a combination of innovation and acquisition. The company’s investment in research and development has yielded technology revolutions that first moved measurement from the quality room to the point of production and then brought metrology data into the wider factory workflow. Recent acquisitions, including the CAD/CAM specialist Vero Software and statistical process control expert Q-DAS, have further expanded the company’s offerings into broader manufacturing technologies—prompting the decision to rebrand as Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.

“The approach of our business is to listen to customers and evolve to meet their needs, and our rebrand is the next stage of this evolution,” explains Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence president and CEO Norbert Hanke. “Manufacturers need to work with speed and confidence, which is why they prefer integrated systems and single-supplier solutions that give them the process efficiency they need to compete and lead their industries.

“As Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, we are ideally positioned to support these aspirations. We have moved beyond the isolated data capture of traditional metrology, enabling customers to analyze and leverage data for more informed decision making—sensing, thinking, and acting, as we call it. We intend to focus our research on connecting these capabilities to offer customers a closed-loop manufacturing approach where quality drives productivity, as well as continuing to develop our core competencies in dimensional metrology.”
