Hexagon Metrology Launches a New Generation of 3-D White Light Measurement Systems

April 5, 2011

North Kingstown, RI– Hexagon Metrology announced the immediate availability of its new white light measurement products in North America. The manual measurement system Cognitens WLS400M and the automated measurement system Cognitens WLS400A replace all former white light products from Hexagon Metrology.

Hexagon Metrology developed both hardware and software for these new systems. Customers can choose between a portable configuration and an automated system, which can be operated with all common industrial robots. Cognitens systems are always turnkey solutions including the software suite CoreView by Hexagon Metrology. CoreView version 5.0 software has been configured to achieve improved utilization of the operating system, memory management, and 3rd-party 64bit software. This enhancement is critical in speeding up large point cloud processing and CAD utilization. In one case study, processing time was cut by 80%.

The Cognitens WLS400 product family will be presented at the Hexagon Metrology Booth 1508 at the AeroDef show held in the Anaheim Convention Center, Hall D, April 5-7, 2011.
