Hexagon Metrology acquires measurement service company

Aug. 21, 2008

Hexagon Metrology (www. hexagonmetrology.com) has acquired Advanced Digital Measurement Works, LLC of Santa Ana, Calif. The company was originally part of the Surveyor’s Service Company (Servco), also a Hexagon owned company. Advanced Digital Measurement has a 17-year history of offering precision industrial measuring services, reverse engineering, and inspection capabilities to many industries, including aerospace, automotive, entertainment, medical and power generation. The company utilizes the latest state-of the art 3D measuring technologies such as laser trackers and portable arm CMMs.

“We are very excited to add the capabilities of Advanced Digital Measurement Works team to our services group,” Jean Gardiner, director of business development for Hexagon Metrology’s services business said. “Their capabilities are a great match for our existing team, and their expertise expands our capacity to offer customized metrology services such as on-site contract inspection, reverse engineering, and contract metrology staffing."

“In today’s extremely competitive environment, companies may not have enough measurement professionals to accomplish their goals, particularly in situations where there is a compressed timeline, like a product launch. Our objective is to supply the talented staff that can augment a company’s existing capabilities when they are needed most. Think of us as a highly specialized on-demand staffing agency for dimensional metrology services.”

Hexagon Metrology has an extensive line of metrology hardware, software, accessories and customer services. The company's name-brand portfolio of quality assurance products include Brown & Sharpe, CogniTens, Leica Geosystems, ROMER, Sheffield, PC-DMIS, DEA, Leitz, and TESA. The company is a subsidiary of Hexagon Measurement Technologies, a business unit of Hexagon AB of Nacka Strand, Sweden.
