Hexagon opens certification centre in Montreal
- April 14, 2021
The move is in cooperation with Hexagon strategic partner Amrikart Ultraprecision and will eliminate the need to ship systems across the border for certification and calibration.
“Hexagon is extremely pleased to expand our support for Canadian customers in the best and most efficient way possible,” says David Hill, commercial operations manager – Canada, at Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. “It only made sense to partner with Amrikart to open a Hexagon Absolute Tracker calibration lab in support of our large installed base across Canada.”
The new facility, slated for Amrikart’s technology centre in Montreal will serve as a nationwide Leica Absolute Tracker calibration laboratory for servicing new or pre-owned laser trackers.
Hexagon’s calibration process ensures the equipment remains in top condition to minimize downtime and maintain accurate measurement results throughout the lifetime of a laser tracker. Amrikart develops and integrates innovative, user-friendly metrology solutions for advanced manufacturing and automation using Hexagon technologies to build confidence in product quality.
“The new dedicated Canadian certification centre will ensure reliable, countrywide support and improve the availability of 3D metrology solutions. We are thrilled and proud to leverage 30 years of experience as users and integrators of laser tracker technology to launch a certification centre supporting our current and future customers,” says Jeremy Arpin-Pont, general manager of Amrikart Ultraprecision.
