Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Strengthens Calibration Capabilities
Assets Transfer from German Calibration Specialist Paves the Way for New Metrology Services
Hexagon AB has completed the transfer of assets from the metrology calibration services business of Feinmess GmbH & Co. KG to Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. Founded in 1992, Feinmess provides independent and comprehensive services in the field of geometric measurement technology. Operating from its premises in Bottenhorn, Germany, the company has a small team of experts dedicated to calibration activities. In 2003, the company was awarded Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) accreditation. The accreditation scope includes the calibration of step gauges, long block gauges, ball plates, spheres and rings, gears, optical scale bars and prismatic parts using the Virtual CMM (VCMM) algorithm. Feinmess also produces the Feintemp multichannel measuring device for temperature and humidity, to monitor and classify controlled environments according to VDI/VDE 2627.
Following the transfer of assets, the Bottenhorn site will continue to provide calibration services with the Feinmess staff becoming part of the Hexagon team.
