Hexagon Acquires Mycrona GmbH

December 11, 2009

NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI-Metrology solutions provider Hexagon Metrology Inc. has announced that its parent company Hexagon AB has purchased all the outstanding assets and intellectual property of German vision systems manufacturer Mycrona GmbH. The acquisition comes shortly after the announcement of Hexagon’s acquisition of Mahr Multisensor GmbH. Both businesses will be integrated into the Hexagon Metrology business unit.

  “Both these acquisitions demonstrate Hexagon Metrology’s firm commitment to the multisensor vision market,” said Angus Taylor, president and CEO of Hexagon Metrology, Inc.  “We already have a close working relationship with Mycrona in North America through an exclusive distribution arrangement that has been in place for two years, so this represents a logical step forward.”

  Mycrona’s line of multisensor metrology machines were already fully integrated with Hexagon Metrology’s PC-DMIS Vision software, and have been available with the software for more than four years.
