Hexagon has recently acquired all outstanding assets and intellectual property of two German companies within the vision metrology industry.
These companies are Mahr Multisensor GmbH and Mycrona GmbH. Mycrona's product portfolio consists of a complete range of machines for the vision industry.
Each product offering is available with camera, laser or white light scanning sensors as well as contact probe systems. In addition the machines already offer Hexagon's PCDMIS vision software on all their products.
The acquired businesses will be integrated into Hexagon's Metrology Vision business. It will be operated with R&D and manufacturing facilities in Germany and China.
"With these acquisitions Hexagon covers all aspects of the multisensor market from fairly simple low-end systems already established via Hexagon's subsidiary Tesa to the advanced automated systems that Mahr and Mycrona represents. It also opens up the door to the nano segment of the measurement technology industry", says Ola Rollén, CEO and President of Hexagon AB.
The acquisitions will add approximately 50-70 MSEK to Hexagon's sales in 2010.
