Product News: Hexagon Metrology Expands Equipment Rental Programs

CMMs and portable arms added to rental equipment choices.

Published: Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 18:00

(Hexagon Metrology: North Kingstown, RI) --  Hexagon Metrology Inc. has announced expanded equipment rental options for its bridge coordinate measuring machines (CMM), portable arm, and laser tracker product lines.  Brown & Sharpe Bridge CMMs such as Global and ONE are now available in most popular sizes and option packages for rental periods of six months or more, ROMER portable arms are available for weekly or monthly rentals, and Leica Laser Trackers are available for monthly terms. Skilled equipment operators are optionally available by contract with each type of equipment. 

“Equipment rentals are a service that we have offered for many years with our Leica Laser Trackers,” says Al Chiasson, director of aftermarket services. “We decided to expand our offerings in recognition that in these extraordinary times, our customers are exploring alternative options to acquire the equipment they need. The unique thing about the Hexagon model is that we can offer not just the equipment, but also the on-site operator support. We have Hexagon staff under contract at customer locations around the country delivering tangible benefits to our customers each day with all our equipment types—bridge CMMs, portable arms and laser trackers. The expansion of rentals is just another way that Hexagon Metrology is demonstrating our ability to deliver value added products and services on a worldwide basis.”
