IT services provider Hexagon AB has acquired Q-DAS, a software company in Statistical Process Control (SPC) solutions for industrial manufacturing.
Hexagon’s strategy is to expand its software portfolio and the acquisition of Q-DAS will strengthen Hexagon’s metrology planning solution, MMS (Metrology Management System), which is designed to provide easy access to measurement data from any source or supplier.
Germany-based Q-DAS, which has offices and partner distribution companies around the world, is already compatible with both Hexagon and third-party solutions. Q-DAS is used in manufacturing sectors where high production volumes and dimensional quality needs require statistical analysis.
Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollen said: “Q-DAS provides the opportunity to increase the value of our MMS solution but also adds growth opportunities for our business, enabling increased market penetration of Q-DAS solutions through our global presence and customer network.”
