GelSight Max 3D Tactile Surface Measurement

GelSight Max allows users to capture high resolution 2D images and 3D digital surface maps in milliseconds. When mounted to a Hexagon Absolute Arm, the Gelsight Max can perform submicron profile and surface roughness, as well as measurement of surface features, such as scratches and pitting, down to the submicron level, and tie the location of those measurements back to a CAD model of the part being measured. GelSight is also a winner in Hexagon's Sixth Sense program.

Speed Meets Precision: Unveiling the AS1-XL Absolute Scanner

Ever wondered how racing giants like Hendrick Motorsports remain at the forefront of motorsports? Dive beneath the hood of their success and you'll find it's rooted in the transformative power of metrology. Metrology has taken a top position in reshaping racing, proving that precision can indeed supercharge on-track performance.

Autonomous metrology: Part 2

We interviewed Jamie Fernandez, chief product officer for ETQ, and John Taylor, chief technology officer at ETQ, about the connection between quality management system software and autonomous metrology. How does integrating the two play into predictive quality and closed-loop manufacturing?

Autonomous Metrology: Part 1

In this interview with Gary Peacock, general manager for metrology software at Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division, we learn the distinction between autonomous vs automatic metrology and how AI ties into that. We also discuss the role of digital twins and other technology, such as Hexagon's Nexus platform. And finally, how do we handle the transfer of certain tasks from humans to automation? What roll do people and their inherent skills play in all of this?

What do quality professionals think about their jobs?

At last year's Masters Summit hosted by MasterControl, Quality Digest CEO Jeff Dewar asked attendees about their jobs. Since most were quality professionals, he cast a wide net and simply asked what they loved and hated about what they do.

When MasterControl hosted the Masters Summit 2022 in Salt Lake City, Quality Digest CEO Jeff Dewar was one of the panelists. That gave him a chance to catch up with Jon Beckstrand, CEO of MasterControl, a company which provides its quality management system to more than 1,000 clients, primarily in the life sciences.

There was plenty of banter about Beckstrand’s professional history, recent projects, and MasterControl’s increasingly global reach, along with the ongoing challenges of staying in touch with a fast-growing company surpassing 750 employees. The questions soon turned to the unique corporate culture MasterControl is building, and how that culture drives the business and delivers value. Of particular interest were Beckstrand’s ideas on how failure can be useful in a successful process.

Quality Digest: When we covered MasterControl a couple of years ago, we highlighted this idea of the chief culture officer, which I thought was very innovative. We see more and more of that now. A lot of them sprang up during the pandemic.
