Measurement Solution Range Reduces Measurement Cycles

Oct. 19, 2017
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has expanded its measurement solution software.

An HTA Measurement solution offering for Aeroengine and Powertrain applications has been expanded. The HTA technology packages deliver reduced measurement cycles and rich data sets for manufacturers looking to integrate dimensional inspection more effectively into their production processes. Based on Hexagon’s patented HP-O optical interferometric sensor technology, HTA solutions provide fast, accurate, non-contact scanning and dramatic time reductions when measuring complex parts such as blisks, gears, camshafts, splines, synchro rings, and clutch baskets. The sensor range includes six configurations for the right combination of inspection methods and part accessibility for the targeted application.

The expanded HTA solutions offering follows the release of the GLOBAL Advantage HTA platform for aeroengine blade measurement. This inspection application utilizes the HP-O Multi-sensor to accurately verify blade characteristics including aerofoil, platform, root, shroud and other features. The new HTA solutions include an HP-O range sensor and a high-performance coordinate measuring machine (CMM) with rotary table for four-axis scanning, as well as the advanced QUINDOS metrology software. The HTA's combination of high-speed scanning and rapid data delivery help meet the demanding productivity goals of manufacturers in automotive, aerospace and other industries.
