AFRC partners with Hexagon

The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC), which is part of the University of Strathclyde, has agreed a tier-one partnership with metrology specialist Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence that will take the centre’s measurement and sensing capability to the next level, with many benefits predicted for Scottish firms.

Hexagon is supplying the AFRC with metrology equipment that includes a Romer Absolute Arm. This measuring arm is entirely portable, allowing AFRC engineers to take their expertise on the road to manufacturing facilities across Scotland. Providing precision measurement of full-scale assemblies, Hexagon’s equipment will allow AFRC engineers and researchers to address metrology challenges and validate existing measurement systems. In addition, the engineers can now fully explore the future of metrology, unlocking opportunities for wider industry by engaging with businesses of all sizes to share the centre’s newly introduced resources.
