Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s Global S coordinate measuring machine (CMM) series can be customized for specific inspection work and changing manufacturing objectives. Four capability packages focused on productivity drivers are available: Throughput, Precision, Multi-Purpose and Shop-Floor.

Built on the company’s Enhanced Productivity Series (EPS) concept, the CMM uses smart technologies and sensor configurations to streamline the creation, execution and analysis of measurement routines. EPS provides users with software and probe choices for their applications, as well as machine options including: the Compass vibration reduction system, which enhances machine scanning throughput and performance; the Pulse environmental monitoring tool; and machine messaging lights for visible notifications. 

The Throughput capability package is designed to reduce measuring cycle times and increase production volume for mass production manufacturers. The Precision capability package is for measuring parts with tight tolerances and complex geometries. The Multi-Purpose capability package is a flexible solution for a variety of materials with different features and surface characteristics. The Shop-Floor package integrates measurements on the production floor and supports fully automated shopfloor measurement, facilitating process optimization. Three productivity levels—Green, Blue and Chrome—are also available to suit a range of applications and budgets.

The CMM comes with PC-DMIS or Quindos measuring software, depending on the capability package. Other options include Q-DAS statistical process analysis (SPC) software and the Smart Quality data and resource management system.
