Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has launched GLOBAL Advantage HTA (High Throughput and Accuracy), an enhanced metrology solution for the aerospace industry.
Increased production demand for higher performance aircraft engines spurred the design of the new GLOBAL Advantage HTA measurement solution for compressor blades.
The GLOBAL Advantage HTA Platform is based on Hexagon’s advanced HP-O Multi optical scanning probe technology for high-speed non-contact measurement of aero- and land-based compressor blades in shop-floor environments. Utilizing frequency-modulated laser interferometry technology, GLOBAL Advantage HTA provides rapid non-contact scanning at single-micron uncertainty to verify blade characteristics including aerofoil, platform, root, shroud and other features. Highly-polished blade surfaces are easily measured, without the need for the secondary coating and cleaning operations required for many non-contact technologies. Using BladeSmart inspection software from Hexagon, the GLOBAL Advantage HTA solution includes an execution command library containing aerofoil, platform and root geometry methods, allowing users to create and deploy measurement programs faster.
The GLOBAL Advantage HTA is available to order worldwide now; more information is available from local Hexagon commercial operations and dealers.
