Hexagon Metrology Heritage
Hexagon Metrology is part of the Swedish Hexagon AB Group which was founded in 1975. Hexagon is a leading global provider of integrated design, measurement and visualization technologies. The organization operates in three divisions: Geosystems, Metrology and Technology. Hexagon describes the measurement technologies market by three different segments: Macro, Micro and Nano. In the macro segment, large objects such as mountains, cities, roads, bridges, tunnels, dams, buildings and other construction projects, are measured. These measurements require precision ranging from 1 metres to 100 micrometres. In the micro segment, industrial components, from large aircraft to micro components in electronic and medical applications are measured. Precisions from 100 to 0.3 micrometres are required for these applications. Customers in this segment are primarily the automotive, aerospace, engineering, medical and energy industries. In the Nano segment, objects such as microchips for the electronics industries, medical applications and materials with new characteristics are measured.
Hexagon Metrology includes leading metrology brands such as Brown & Sharpe, CE Johansson, Cognitens, DEA, Leica Geosystems (Metrology Products), Leitz, m&h Inprocess Messtechnik, Optiv, PC-DMIS, QUINDOS, ROMER and TESA.
Hexagon Metrology brands represent an unrivaled global installed base of millions of Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs), portable measuring systems and handheld instruments, and tens of thousands of metrology software licenses. Hexagon Metrology empowers its customers to fully control manufacturing processes that rely on dimensional precision, ensuring that products manufactured precisely conform to the original product design. The company offering of machines, systems and software is complemented by a wide range of product support, aftermarket and value-added services.
The story of Hexagon Metrology is a story of both recent and traditional brands. Its history stretches back to the 19th century and contains a rich treasure of experience that forms the solid foundation for customer-orientated action and future growth. Wide known names in the metrology history such as Ernst Leitz, Jakob Kern, Heinrich Wild or Carl Edvard Johansson are indispensably connected with Hexagon Metrology. Carl Edvard Johansson, a Swedish investor, and the inventor of the gauge block, founded the Swedish company CE Johansson in 1911, which is a part of Hexagon Metrology since 2002. CE Johansson started as a hand tools manufacturer and progressed to the development and production of advanced measuring equipment. Today, CE Johansson is providing the mix of services, technical know-how and measuring products that precisely meets its customer's needs.
