Leading metrology and manufacturing solution specialist Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has announced a new step in its longstanding partnership with Airbus. Thirty of the newly released Leica Absolute Tracker AT403 systems have been purchased for use at the established Airbus assembly facility in Hamburg. These advanced laser trackers will become a key part of the final assembly process of the A320 Family of commercial passenger aircraft. Hexagon continues to provide innovative metrology solutions that help the aerospace giant meet their time, cost and quality goals as they ramp up production in Germany.
“After more than 20 years of working with Airbus, we’re very proud to be bringing our latest laser tracker products on board with Airbus’s strategic A320 in Hamburg,” said Stéphane Malet, Airbus Key Account Manager for Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “Our products have so much to offer for big projects in the aerospace industry. With the increasing data capabilities of Hexagon measurement solutions, innovative businesses can build accurate 3D data right into the global production process, delivering key efficiency improvements and letting them achieve the objective of every production manager: getting things right the first time around.”
Hexagon is active across Airbus, working to optimize the links between the Group and its most important suppliers. Facilitating their aim to have suppliers deliver plug-and-go ‘techno-bricks’ to their final assembly plants, Hexagon offers dedicated training to any of Airbus’s tier one suppliers that need to integrate advanced metrology into their manufacturing process.
