Non-contact profile measurement and surface inspection firm NextSense has been added to the expansive portfolio of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division.

Headquartered in Graz, Austria, NextSense is best known for its patented Calipri technology that automatically compensates for tilts and rotations during scanning, letting users spot profile deviations and surface defects.

The move should complement Hexagon’s drive to enable the ultimate smart factory, with Hexagon president and CEO Ola Rollén, saying: “The acquisition extends our breadth of capabilities in automotive fit and finish – the analysis of how well the parts of a car fit together, which impacts perceived quality at the point of purchase – as well as in industries such as rail and steel where we have a comparatively small footprint today.
“Together, the combination of sensors, software, and advanced analytics from both portfolios will bring added value to all customers while extending the global reach of NextSense solutions to new markets and regions.”
