Hexagon Launches PRESTO Robotic Inspection Cell
Jul 25, 2023
PRESTO enables reduced quality inspection times, increased efficiency and streamlined workflows.
Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division launched its new automated robotic inspection cell PRESTO, enabling manufacturers to reduce quality inspection times, increase efficiency, and streamline workflows.
PRESTO will enable customers, such as automotive OEMs, to cope with the dynamic demands of the market – such as the shift to electric mobility – by increasing measurement capacity, and thus reducing time to market.
The solution builds on Hexagon's leading HxGN Robotic Automation software which has supported the automotive sector through an uncertain market to integrate Hexagon's state of the art 3D scanning and absolute positioning technologies and software in a single turn-key solution.
Manufacturers cannot afford to re-tool a whole production line to pivot to building Electric Vehicles (EVs) over Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) or setting up inbound inspection of a car door from a supplier. With PRESTO, Hexagon is adapting quality inspection for a dynamic, unpredictable time, as well as enabling the future of smaller-batch production of larger volume parts.
PRESTO enables end-to-end inspection in a turnkey package and is powered by the best 3D-laser scanning technologies in the industry, ensuring that any surface, even highly reflective materials, can be easily inspected. It is designed to enable the future of automated inspection by:
