Not only does Etalon’s portfolio strengthen Hexagon’s calibration solution offering, but complements its on-machine measurement solution range, which now incorporates machine tool probes, software and calibration equipment.

“By joining Hexagon, Etalon gains the scale to strengthen and expand its position in equipment calibration,” says Hexagon president and CEO Ola Rollén. “Moreover, the acquisition is a natural extension of Hexagon’s data-driven smart factory strategy. It is reinforcing our commitment to increase customer value through the convergence of production and metrology, and greater process autonomy via machine-controlled operations. We are very pleased to welcome such an innovative team on board and look forward to working together on new solutions for our customers.”

Etalon CEO Heinrich Schwenke adds: "We believe that this is an excellent step for Etalon to better reach and serve our global customers. The technology portfolio in the areas of machine calibration and monitoring, production metrology, and smart factories ideally complement the Hexagon product range. We are looking forward to working with our customers as part of this strong and global organisation. It will accelerate Etalon´s growth and strengthen the metrology capital Brunswick as a location within Hexagon.”
