Hexagon’s Nexus platform leverages cloud technologies, allowing teams to collaborate in real time across the entire product lifecycle – from design and engineering to production and quality assurance. This is done by connecting devices, data and processes to create a digital reality where insights are available in real-time, in context and in one place. Initial solutions include a Metrology Reporting App. This connects Hexagon and third-party measurement data sources in Nexus’ secure cloud environment. The Materials Connect app is a cloud-based library of materials data for use in CAE workflows.
The optoNCDT 1760-1000 long-range laser sensor by Micro-Epsilon also measures at distances of up to 2m with up to 7.5kHz.
