March 4, 2014 - Hexagon Metrology announced the launch of 360° Smart Inline Measurement Solutions (360° SIMS), a new family of measurement solutions that can be fully integrated into demanding automotive production lines to serve manufacturers during launch, ramp-up and ongoing production. They enable full surface inspection and critical features measurement of up to 100 per cent of the produced car bodies, parts and sub-assemblies within production cycle time. By leveraging its reliable metrology methods, innovative software and sensor technologies, Hexagon Metrology has created an advanced means of process control for a comprehensive understanding of quality.

The installations are adapted to their respective environment and target industry applications. Installations typically include shop floor-proven white light area measurement sensors from Hexagon Metrology and powerful point cloud-based software tools. Using a simple touchscreen interface, operators with basic training can supervise the measurement process, easily visualize results and identify root cause for quality concerns.

The solutions are compatible with commonly used industrial robots, PLCs, automation devices and safety equipment. Cell configurations will include in-line, near-the-line and offline options to support a variety of customer applications throughout stamping, body shop and final assembly sub-plants. Other options include a patent-pending alignment and measuring device for large objects, innovative software tools for large data set visualization and analysis and fixed optical sensors for complementing measurement tasks. The cells can be positioned anywhere along production lines and production bays to support a customer's dimensional control strategies.
