Hexagon to Host Grand Opening for California Solution Center

The company’s second California site will have space for demonstrations and training along with a laser tracker calibration laboratory.

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence will host a grand opening at its newest Hexagon HeSolution Center in Irvine, California, on January 11. The ceremony will be preceded by a PC-DMIS users group meeting, featuring an exclusive preview of the latest PC-DMIS software release.

The 15,500-square-foot facility is the company’s second solution center in California, along with its Oceanside production facility. The new site will feature a technology demonstration room, software training facilities and a Leica laser tracker calibration laboratory along with offices for project engineers, applications engineers, and sales and support personnel.

“The expanded facility enables Hexagon to deliver a new level of training, education, support and services for customers using our intelligent quality solutions in key industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical and more,” says Hexagon North America President and CEO Angus Taylor.

Attendees at the PC-DMIS meeting will receive a private viewing of PC-DMIS 2018 R1 before its public release on January 17. The informational program will include a report on what’s new, an interactive question and answer session, and the first public demonstration of the software.

The grand opening begins at 11 a.m. with lunch, a ribbon-cutting ceremony and opening remarks. The technical program will resume with a showcase of the company’s products, including live measurement demonstrations and applications of Leica Absolute Trackers, Romer Absolute Arms, portable scanning solutions and stationary CMMs.
