Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Unveils 360º Flexible Measurement Cell

Seamlessly integrates flexibility, throughput and performance in one automated solution

Published: Monday, September 19, 2016 - 08:49

(Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence: North Kingstown, RI) -- Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has released the 360º Flexible Measurement Cell (360º FMC), an automated measurement work cell. Developed by Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Integrated Solutions Business Unit, the 360º FMC is the first automated measurement work cell to seamlessly deliver all four pillars of automation in one solution: flexibility, footprint, throughput, and performance.

The 360º FMC is ideally suited for automotive and aero structure applications, including powertrain and closure panel fabrication. An informational video can be found here.

The 360º FMC is built on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) work cell systems integrated with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence measurement solutions. This synergy of external devices, products, processes, and systems packaged in a COTS format makes these work cells easily customizable and quick to install. This work cell solution enhances the manufacturing process by rapidly returning operational data to organizations, enabling fabricators to benefit from a truly data-driven manufacturing process.

“The 360º FMC automated measurement solution represents a complete synergy of the core strengths of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, and it’s leading the way toward the smart factory,” says Jeff Perry, director of integrated solutions at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “As manufacturers advance toward Industry 4.0, intelligent, data-driven solutions like the 360º FMC are making the transition easy. The shop-hardened, innovative COTS systems will serve the needs of forward-thinking customers transitioning to smart production for greater productivity and the compelling cost savings derived from using real-time data.”

The 360º FMC is scalable, portable, and modular. The solution is offered in three configurations, ready for in-line, near-line, or offline applications, and is easily adapted to any production space. The 360º FMC solution provides an easily adaptable solution for changing manufacturing priorities and production demands.
