Automotive Applications
With the ever-shorter design-to-production runs, assorted automotive manufacturers and their suppliers have turned to industrial metrology solutions to find ways to decrease ramp up times, increase productivity, reduce part rejection and improve the quality of their products.

From inspecting multiple bodies-in-white in one setup with laser tracker systems, prototype part inspection or die build and tryout validation with white light scanner systems, checking fit-and-finish tolerances in a car's interior with articulated arms to entirely automated gantry and horizontal arm coordinate measurement machines (CMMs) installations and everything in-between, Hexagon Metrology's customer roster reads like a "Who's Who?" of the world's most successful car companies.
