Hexagon Metrology today announced the launch of the Brown & Sharpe 4.5.4 SF has surpassed all expectations. Within three weeks of its debut, more than 200 units have been ordered.  Prior to the SF series release, production capabilities in the North Kingstown, RI factory were ramped up to accommodate the expected increase in demand, with lead times for deliveries holding firm at four to six weeks despite the backlog.  This latest generation of shop floor coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) was designed from the ground up based on customer requirements.
Excelling in harsh manufacturing environments, the SF series introduces a variety of advancements based on decades of experience with thousands of prior models in the field worldwide. Its focus on portability, with a footprint of 52.2”x 32.8” x 79.5”, allows it to fit through a standard door. Its computer, controller, and interface boxes are integrated into one self-contained unit with locking wheels, adding an unparalleled level of mobility throughout the shop floor. The 4.5.4 SF also uses standard 110/220 volt outlets with no need for shop air.
“The 4.5.4 SF is the fastest selling product in Hexagon Metrology’s history. Our customer-driven product development resulted in a state-of-the-art CMM  that has definitely hit the mark with the metrology marketplace,” states Eric Bennett, Product Manager from Hexagon Metrology.
