HTA Measurement Solution

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced the expansion of its high throughput and accuracy HTA Measurement solution offering for aeroengine and powertrain applications. The new 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, noncontact scanning and dramatic time reductions when measuring complex parts such as blisks, gears, camshafts, splines, synchro rings and clutch baskets, according to the company. 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.

“The HTA concept was originally developed to help aeroengine manufacturers meet challenging throughput demands. We are very excited to offer this technology to a wider application space with the HTA solutions,” states Michael Mariani, director of strategic business development and business unit manager at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence North America. “High throughput and accuracy measurement enables manufacturers to optimize their production processes and stay competitive in the marketplace. The HP-O sensor range delivers greater flexibility and we are confident that HTA solutions will make measurable differences to manufacturers in several industries.”
