Located at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, the show ran from May 23 to May 25. POWERGEN is the largest network and business hub for electricity generators and solution providers engaged in power generation. Power producers, utilities, EPCs, consultants, OEMs and large-scale energy users gather to experience unparalleled education, peer-to-peer networking and solutions from top providers.

Exact Metrology displayed the Hexagon 825 and the Leica AT960 Tracker. Also known as the ROMER  Absolute Arm 7-axis, it delivers tactile probing and laser scanning in a uniquely ergonomic package.  With usability central to its design, the articulating measuring arm offers ease of movement and ease of measurement. Built-in versatility is part of a uniquely modular wrist design that features configurable grip shapes and sizes. Additional features include an on-wrist display that puts control and results in the hands of the user and a wide range of accessories from probe tips to laser scanners to complete measurement systems. This leads to a productive arm delivering high-accuracy measurement results easier and faster than before.

The Leica AT960 is a robust, all-in-one laser tracker that fits in a single flight case. Offering high-speed dynamic measurement as standard, it is a complete solution for six degrees of freedom (6DoF) probing, scanning and automated inspection as well as reflector measurement.  Featuring wireless communication and a battery operation option, the integrated-technology design of the AT960 reduces setup time drastically. The Leica Absolute Interferometer (AIFM) enables accurate high-speed measurement of a moving target, while the innovative PowerLock function ensures an interrupted beam is instantly re-established without user intervention, reducing operator workload and training requirements. Intuitive touch-screen controls minimize the potential for user error, thus saving time, effort and money.

Dean Solberg, Vice President of Metrology Sales and Services at Exact Metrology and Karan Singh, Sales Engineer were at the show. In-Place Machining Company personnel in attendance included Noel Brekas, Northeast Regional Sales Manager, Paul Parry, Outside Sales Manager and Bart Rierson, Field Engineer. Bruce Littlefield, Key Account Manager from OASIS Alignment Services was also in the booth.

Dean Solberg expressed his excitement at having IPM and OASIS Alignment Services join Exact at POWERGEN. “With the recent acquisitions of Exact Metrology and OASIS Alignment Services, the IPM Measurement Group now provides expanded 3D scanning solutions, contract metrology services, and precision machine alignment capabilities. With 18 locations across the U.S. and Canada and over 120 field engineers and technicians that travel worldwide, we are truly your one source for on-site excellence.”
