Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence delivers metrology solutions for Hendrick Motorsports

February 23, 2017 - Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced its portable metrology solutions are being used to drive optimization under the hood at Hendrick Motorsports. The two companies formed a technology partnership in early 2016 for collaborative technology development and engineering problem solving. The winner of a record 12 NASCAR Cup Series championships, Hendrick Motorsports has recently achieved more accolades, including Jimmie Johnson’s record-tying seventh Cup Series championship, Chase Elliott’s Rookie of the Year honors and team owner Rick Hendrick's induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The Hendrick Motorsports engineering team utilizes Leica Absolute Trackers, Global Advantage CMMs, ROMER Absolute Arms and GridLOK volume-expansion systems for dimensional control of parts, processes and mechanics.

Hexagon supports the technology partnership with expanded in-house metrology capabilities and additional measurement systems, training and expert technical support. The portable measurement systems generate 3D production and process data on-demand to support optimal decision-making and expedite issue resolution during the pre- and post-race evaluations. The portable ROMER arms and Leica Absolute Trackers acquire 3D measurements to inspect and aid in the assembly of auto bodies and chassis components, while Global Advantage CMMs provide sub-micron accurate measurements for engine components and end engine assembly. Using precision metrology and actionable data, Hendrick Motorsports can build upon its quality analytics to drive improvements and progress its command of vehicle performance intricacies and the challenges of producing winning machines.
