Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing Adds to Membership



The Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) has announced Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has joined CCAM at the Affiliate Member level and will have a seat on CCAM's Technology Advisory Council. CCAM is an applied research center providing solutions in adaptive automation, surface engineering and additive manufacturing. Hexagon will participate in CCAM research and provide expertise in optical non-contact 3-D measuring systems for industrial manufacturing applications. Hexagon is a metrology and manufacturing solution provider, specializing in the collection, analysis and active use of measurement data to increase production speed, accelerate productivity and enhance product quality.

CCAM bridges the gap between research and commercialization to accelerate new developments to market. Hexagon will contribute its metrology expertise and the AICON StereoScan neo 3-D scanner and a DPA photogrammetry system. These optical, portable solutions are a part of AICON's portfolio of non-contact 3-D measuring systems used to enable efficient, high-precision monitoring, quality assurance and control in manufacturing production. CCAM research and development is conducted at its 62,000 square foot facility just outside of Richmond, VA.

"Hexagon looks forward to our newest collaborative partnership with the CCAM consortium of leading manufacturers and research institutions," said Director of Strategic Business Development Michael Mariani, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. "We are pleased to make a technology contribution to the CCAM metrology center, adding another level of capability in support of the innovative work conducted at this leading research facility for advanced manufacturing methods."

"CCAM is delighted to have Hexagon become our newest member," said Jaime Camelio, CCAM Chief Technology Officer. "Its inspection tools fully complement our research agenda, providing CCAM the opportunity to develop enhanced algorithms to optimize inspection processes."

CCAM also recently announced that CGTech has joined as an Affiliate member. CGTech, the developer of the VERICUT software application, will participate in CCAM research and provide extremely valuable verification/optimization capabilities to complement CCAM's current machining capabilities.

"CCAM is delighted to have CGTech become an Affiliate member," said Will Powers, CCAM President and CEO. "They will bring significant capabilities to enhance the productivity for our current and future members."

"CGTech's VERICUT software supports applications utilized by many of our members. It will help our research team simulate CNC machining to detect potential inefficiencies or conflicts prior to the machining process," said Ron Volpicella, Research Manager at CCAM.

"With many customers and partners already part of CCAM, it was a natural fit to join the research center," said Jon Prun, President of CGTech. "We look forward to working with the other CCAM members to help deliver improved efficiency to industry."

The CCAM industry and government consortium now numbers 31 members, including Aerojet Rocketdyne, Airbus, Alcoa, Chromalloy, Kyocera SGS Precision Tools, Newport News Shipbuilding, Oerlikon Metco, Rolls-Royce, Sandvik Coromant, Siemens, Blaser Swisslube, Canon Virginia Inc., EOS, GF Machining Solutions, Hermle Machine Co., Mitutoyo, Paradigm Precision, RTI International Metals, Inc., Buehler, CGTech, Cool Clean Technologies, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, Mechdyne, National Instruments, Spatial Integrated Systems (SIS) and the NASA Langley Research Center.

Academic partners are the Old Dominion University, University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia State University and Virginia Tech.
