Hexagon Metrology UK has completed the latest phase of its ongoing investment programme with the opening of a second user co-ordinate measurement machine showroom.
The new facility at the measurement solutions provider’s head office in Telford offers a selection of used Hexagon Group machines, suitable for either tactile probing or scanning, which have undergone an extensive and thorough reconditioning process.
As the original equipment manufacturer, Hexagon Metrology also repairs or replaces all of the key elements of the machines as necessary. It equips them with the latest software and firmware, including the RC1 retrofit controller, which often boosts accuracy performance and exceeds the original specification.
Hexagon Metrology provides the same service and support services as new machine purchases, meaning warranty, service and calibration packages, and part programming can be provided locally.
“While the overall performance of these machines may not be to the current state-of-the-art standard, we’re able to greatly extend the service life of the equipment to ensure that another customer can still enjoy the benefits,” explained Hexagon Metrology UK’s sales and marketing director Brett Green.
“Even though high-end CMMs have never been as affordable, our second user offer recognises that the level of investment required may not always be available,” he added.
Hexagon Metrology’s ongoing investment programme has already involved the opening of a new precision centre in Milton Keynes, expansion of its product portfolio plus new IT and customer service systems.
Its latest products will be on show at Manufacturing and Engineering North East from July 8-9 and Offshore Europe, September 8-11. www.hexagonmetrology.co.uk
