Hexagon AB announces acquisition of NEXTSENSE

May 15, 2018 - Hexagon AB, a global provider of information technology solutions, announced the acquisition of NEXTSENSE, an innovator in non-contact profile measurement and surface inspection. NEXTSENSE specialises in solutions that enhance product quality in the automotive, railway, steel and aerospace industries.

Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Graz, Austria, NEXTSENSE employs more than 80 people worldwide. Its advanced manual, inline and automated solutions are backed by patented CALIPRI technology.
