Wilcox Associates Inc., a Hexagon Metrology company, recently announced the release of PC-DMIS Planner software. The toolset improves the flow of information between the design department, which designs parts in the virtual CAD world, and the engineering department, which manages the quality control function and inspects “as built” parts in the real world. PC-DMIS Planner was developed to create a formalized two-directional data flow between a CAD model and its related inspection part programs.

Citing excess capacity and efficiency as the key reasons, Hexagon Metrology is closing its plant in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. During the past year, the plant, which assembled Sheffield brand products, has been shifting operations to Hexagon’s new facility in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. The move was part of an overall operational consolidation effort, and to take advantage of the superior assembly capabilities of the Rhode Island facility, according to William Fetter, director of marketing and communications for Hexagon Metrology.
