Hexagon AB Group announces the signing of an agreement to acquire Volume Graphics, a market leader in industrial computed tomography (CT). The latter brings more than 20 years of experience in the design of software ensuring inspections and non-destructive testing.
"Volume Graphics offers an effective set of tools to leverage CT data in a wide range of applications, from defect detection and failure analysis to back design. We aspire to focus our skills to ensure our customers the highest quality in product development and production," said Ola Rollén, President and CEO of Hexagon. "In addition, industrial CT digitization is rapidly expanding as a crucial resource in the world of production, at a time when more and more sectors are using additive manufacturing. The addition of CT software features strengthens our range in this growing industry. At the last edition of Hexagon Live, Contrôles Essais Mesures magazine was surprised by Norbert Hanke, head of the Manufacturing Intelligence division of the Hexagon Group, which will host Volume Graphics, not to see any offers specific to tomography.

Volume Graphics, the undisputed specialist in the sector, will finally be integrated into the Hexagon group subject to regulatory approvals...
Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany, Volume Graphics employs nearly 160 people worldwide. Branch offices in Japan, the United States, Singapore and China, in cooperation with an extensive network of resellers, supply the company's software to customers in more than 50 countries. In 2018, the company recorded a turnover of 25 M €.
The latest issues of Contrôles Essais Mesures have devoted detailed articles to Volume Graphics companies in its new section on tomography.
