Hexagon AB has announced the acquisition of Etalon. Etalon’s solutions continuously monitor and initiate compensation of machine tools, measuring machines, robots and structures to ensure the dimensional accuracy of manufactured parts.
Founded in 2004, Etalon employs around 25 people with domain expertise in production and metrology technology. Its solutions are used by customers in mechanical engineering, industrial instrumentation, automotive and aerospace technology and the research sector. Not only does Etalon’s portfolio strengthen Hexagon’s calibration solution offering but also nicely complements its on-machine measurement solution range, which now incorporates machine tool probes, software and calibration equipment.
Headquartered in Braunschweig, Germany with a global network of distribution partners, Etalon will operate within Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. The acquisition will be consolidated as of today and has no significant impact on Hexagon’s earnings.
