In Booth E-5202, Hexagon Metrology is debuting the Cognitens WLS400A, a 3D optical measurement solution that transforms a robot into an automatic, high-accuracy metrology device. Ideal for the motor vehicle or aerospace industries, says the company, this white-light-based system is used to accurately measure large components, analyze early root causes of potential assembly issues, and lower scrap costs during assembly ramp-up—all through digital stereo vision technology that generates precise 3D data in vibration-prone shopfloor environments.
