Metrology in Action

 

You can have all the data in the world but if you cant measure the results properly your company will be left behind. David Hill explains how Hexagon is unlocking the secrets of metrology (the science of measurement) and helping to provide a blueprint for successful data optimization.

Hexagon is a leader known for “developing measuring protocols, we certainly have a very large portfolio when it comes to our measurement solutions.”
Hill is very proud that the Hexagon reach goes far beyond the parent company. “Most people would be surprised at the number of recognizable companies under the Hexagon logo.”

Companies would be wise to follow the same path as Hexagon. Many are now concentrating efforts to implement Smart Factories and Industry 4.0. But exactly what does that mean?
Industry 4.0 means a lot of different things to different people. Hill states that Industry 4.0 is “making our factories smarter by using sensors or using the data that we’ve gathered to optimize the processes instead of in the past merely collecting and storing the information. Now we are actually applying that information, sharing and making it accessible.”

Another area where metrology is making a huge impact is in Automation. “It makes sense, it’s not an R & D project anymore, it’s taking best in class technology and applying them in a fashion useable throughout the organization.”

Industry 4.0 is everywhere in the process and throughout manufacturing, “it’s really just what information is important to you and how do we make it accessible.”
