Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has announced its GLOBAL S Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) platform will debut at EASTEC 2017, Hexagon Booth 3103, Eastern States Exposition, in West Springfield, MA, from May 16-18, 2017. The Global S measuring solution is the initial offering in Hexagon’s Enhanced Productivity Series (EPS) featuring smart technologies such as user experience (UX) enhancements, measurement software and advanced “green” options. The EPS platform is designed specifically to simplify the creation, execution and analysis of measurement routines.
The Global S CMM solution is a complete package utilized from start to finish in a Quality program, from the engineer creating the measurement routine to the operator executing the inspection program to the manager analyzing the data and improving processes in the production workflow. The Global S CMM impacts dimensional inspection operations with higher productivity in demand by industries such as automotive, aerospace, general mechanics and precision mechanics industries.
The Global S platform utilizes PC-DMIS CMM software for the collection, evaluation, management and presentation of manufacturing data. Leveraging software advancements, common tasks such as the selection of probe tips and importing files are now 3 – 8 times faster than existing solutions. Improvements such as feature sensor mapping allow the user to associate sensors to features more rapidly when importing inspection plans. Operators benefit from faster scanning measurement of non-predefined paths and optimized path trajectories for expedited part-program execution. Another innovation is the new “Inspect” option for program selection and execution. This easy-to-use interface within PC-DMIS allows “one click” measurement routine selection.
The GLOBAL S with the Chrome precision level takes advantage of the CMM’s hardware enhancements to offer superior accuracy at the highest scanning speed. Eco Mode+, a new green feature, provides a 90% reduction of compressed air consumption when the machine is in an idle state. The CMM solution saves up to 25% of compressed air cost under machine standard operating conditions. The Global S also offers configurable workstation options, message lighting and a redesigned jogbox for an improved operator experience. Machine alerts regarding temperature, humidity, vibrations, and unexpected stoppage are available via new options of PULSE, a real-time monitoring system for metrology environments, and the PC-DMIS’s notification center.
The GLOBAL S is available worldwide via local Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence commercial operations and dealers, with shipment commencing immediately.
