“Metrology and its relationship to manufacturing is rapidly evolving,”
Ken Woodbine, president, Wilcox Associates, a brand of Hexagon Metrology
(North Kingstown, RI), recently observed. “We are seeing larger
quantities and faster speeds of measurement data collection. The next
challenge is what to do with all that data.” Hexagon is expanding its focus, building off its base in metrology,
toward an increased emphasis on optimizing manufacturing processes.
Woodbine describes this expansion in a paradigm of the brand’s Sensing,
Thinking, and Acting mantra.
