(Nikon Metrology, Leuven, Belgium) -- Nikon Metrology has announced that Canadian-based 7D Kinematic Metrology Inc, has acquired Nikon Metrology’s iGPS dynamic tracking business.

iGPS is a modular large scale, high-accuracy dynamic tracking solution that transforms large facilities into an accurate tracking-enabled workspace. Within the facility, the movement of an unlimited number of devices like large assembly parts, tools, and automated guided vehicles equipped with iGPS sensors, can be tracked concurrently. As such iGPS technology enables advanced manufacturing and assembly of large-scale products such as aircraft or aerospace components. The iGPS technology is also used during the development process of automotive active safety and autonomous driving systems.

7D Kinematic Metrology is part of Amrikart Ultraprecision group. Specializing in real-time assisted assembly solutions, 7D Kinematic Metrology is today a world leader in the implementation of the revolutionary iGPS system. 7D Kinematic Metrology has extensive expertise in dimensional measurement, the company is a strategic partner for any manufacturer of large-scale products requiring high-precision measurements.

(Nikon Metrology NV: Leuven, Belgium) — Nikon Metrology and Magestic Systems Inc. jointly introduce an innovative fabrication solution for increasing production of right-first-time composite parts that harnesses the vast capabilities of both Nikon Metrology’s laser radar technology and Magestic Systems’ Ply Compensation System (PCS).

The synergy between Magestic Systems’ PCS and Nikon Metrology’s laser radar offers composite part manufacturers a seamless solution—utilizing metrology, ply nesting, and laser projection technologies to produce composite parts within engineering tolerances thus achieving minimal waste. By combining laser radar and PCS technologies, manufacturers put in place an automated metrology-assisted production process that delivers parts of predictable quality, while rigorously reducing scrap, and maintaining accuracy, scalability, and ease of use. Despite their generally high cost, composite materials have gained popularity in high-performance products that need to be lightweight, and at the same time strong enough to take harsh loading conditions. Today, composite materials are widely used in aviation components (tails, wings, fuselages, propellers), space vehicles, boat hulls, race cars, storage tanks, turbine blades, and even baseball bats.
