Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Customer Testimonial

Our first article process has become more simplified and streamlined since implementing PC-DMIS. An operator can come in the lab, enter a few keystrokes and begin taking measurements, eliminating downtime and increasing productivity.

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Customer Testimonial

Speed & Precision

The Leica Absolute Tracker replaced an expensive and cumbersome model that was required to check part alignment and fit. Moreover, these models were unique to each style and were expensive to manufacture and store. They took a good deal of time to set up and align. The Leica tracker eliminated all that and allowed for precise measurements and comparison to a mock-up of the final assembly.
