New Precision Centre Opens For Business

Hexagon Metrology UK has officially opened a new precision centre in Milton Keynes as part of its ongoing multi-million pound investment programme.

The new site at Tongwell offers a wide range of service and repair facilities, which include a rare 40m purpose-built rail for recalibrating laser trackers.

The centre is designed to provide customers in the south of England with faster service turnaround times and improved after-sales support.

As well as being more than twice the size of its previous premises, the facility also features a modern training room equipped with Hexagon Metrology co-ordinate measuring machines, product demonstration area and conference rooms.

The company recently hosted a series of open days to showcase its latest resource and organized a variety of workshops on measurement technology topics including laser scanning and multiple sensor measurement.

Visitors were able to get up close to a Red Bull F1 race car and enjoy talks by guest speakers including entrepreneur and record breaker Richard Noble OBE.

The Milton Keynes site complements Hexagon Metrology’s new precision centre in Chester and sub-contract inspection and measurement facilities at Telford.
