Search All Metrology Sessions ABOUT THE METROLOGY TRACK

The metrology track offers insightful sessions from Hexagon Metrology.

Why measure the products you produce? Simple – producing a quality product impacts throughput, increasing efficiency and profitability.

Join us to learn how your peers are using actionable information to increase productivity across all types of industry. Understand how others have implemented ground-breaking inspection methodologies to improve their processes. Presentations will include reports on industry trends, new technology introductions and interactive technology demonstrations.



TRENDS IN PRODUCTIVITY

Whether ramping up production on the world’s largest passenger jet, producing 400 engine variations, automating the inspection of more than 60,000 gages or hurling down an ice track on a tiny board at 90 mph, the end product has to be right. Discover how the right solution helped improve productivity on various projects including:

  • Olympic dreams are won—and lost—by a tenth of a second. Learn how 3D scanning helped reduce product time and cost by more than 50% for the Olympic skeleton sleds used at the Sochi games.
  • When a company produces almost 400 different engine configurations, the need for precise inspections is critical. See how an array of metrology equipment runs 24/7 to keep up with Audi’s varied demands.
  • Daimler’s Gauge Calibration Centre counts more than 500 company departments as its clients. By automating the inspection of more than 60,000 gages, the group reached a 70% reduction in measurement time.
  • For the production ramp up of the world’s largest passenger jet, a new production line had to be tooled up and the old way of doing things had to be evaluated. The resulting solution provides a 70% increase in inspection speed compared to the previous method.
