Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has announced the availability of the latest version of the GLOBAL S HTA (high throughput and accuracy) solution for the aerospace industry, which brings major enhancements to Hexagon’s high-speed, non-contact compressor blade measurement system. It builds on the performance strength of the GLOBAL S HTA’s predecessor, which delivered a cycle time that was between two and five times faster than traditional tactile measurement. New software upgrades now mean the GLOBAL S HTA further reduces measurement cycle time by up to 30% on average. Software improvements include easy, three-step aerofoil measurement routine creation and eliminating processing wait times during measurement execution for faster measurement cycle times. Application video can be found here.
The GLOBAL S HTA solution delivers high-density measurement data for enhanced aerofoil geometry analysis by using Hexagon’s HP-O non-contact scanning technology. Its advanced HP-O Multi optical scanning probe technology deploys frequency-modulated laser interferometry technology to provide rapid non-contact scanning with sub-micron repeatability to verify the most challenging blade characteristics including knife edge, leading and trailing edges (LE/TE), 3D aerofoil geometries, platform, root and shroud features.
The GLOBAL S HTA is available worldwide. More information is available from local Hexagon representatives and dealers.
