Hexagon Metrology and Airbus parent EADS (European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company) have renewed their framework contract though till 2014, with respect to Hexagon Metrology's Leica Geosystems' portable measurement technology.

A framework contract between EADS and Hexagon Metrology's Leica Geosystems was first established in 2002 and has run since then-Hexagon Metrology acquired Leica Geosystems in 2005.

Leica Geosystems metrology products are widely used for build/inspect processes of tools and parts and enable metrology-assisted assembly. For EADS, using advanced metrology equipment is said to result in short production cycles and cost efficiency in a demanding industry sector.

"This contract reaffirms our ability to assert ourselves as one of the favoured global suppliers of the EADS group for portable metrology solutions," said Méhand Idri, EMEA business development manager for Leica Geosystems Metrology Products.

"Our accurate, reliable and innovative measuring solutions add substantial value to existing EADS products, as well as new and enhanced aircraft programmes, such as the Airbus A350 XWB and A320neo."
