Four Unmissable Manufacturing Technologies at HxGN LIVE 2019

There’s no better way to understand which solutions are shaping manufacturing than to see (and in some cases test) them for yourself.

That’s why Hexagon’s digital solutions conference features the Zone, 120 000 square feet of innovative technology, from all Hexagon divisions, our partners and other technology vendors.

There are plenty of solutions on display that could be just what your organisation is seeking to drive productivity. Here are five transformative technologies that you won’t want to miss at HxGN LIVE, 11-14 June 2019.

    1. The World’s First Direct Scanning Laser Tracker There is a lot of buzz surrounding a major development in the world of laser trackers.By utilising Wave Form Digitiser (WFD) technology, the Leica Absolute Tracker ATS600 enables metrology-grade measurement of surfaces up to 60 metres away – with no need for a reflector.As well as delivering unprecedented efficiency in the inspection of large surfaces, ATS600’s pioneeringcapabilities can be deployed autonomously. At HxGN LIVE, attendees can see how the ATS600 can be mounted on a robot to capture surfaces without the need for operator intervention.
    2. Industry-Leading Multiphysics Co-Simulation Simulations are typically performed considering only single physical phenomena. This is convenient for the mathematics but risks missing the bigger-picture in the real-world where multiple physical phenomena interact. MSC CoSim connects simulations of different physical phenomena to provide a more holistic view of product performance and reliability. This gives engineers the ability to see how different simulation disciplines interact, increasing confidence in their products.We’ll be showing how this platform brings together a range of comprehensive software solutions to give engineers unique and invaluable insight.
    3. All-in-One Complete Machining Process Mastery NCSIMUL is a single platform thatbrings together a range of solutions to virtualise the shop floor, saving machining time and reducing collisions.Users can manage the complete machining process, from automatic G-code reprogramming, through CNC program lifecycle management, to real-time machine monitoring.One automotive company used NCSIMUL to cut a part’s cycle time by 15 seconds. With 600 000 of these parts produced per year, this amounts to savings of 2 500 hours (104 days). Check out the NCSIMUL demo to find out how such savings and more are possible.
    4. Holistic Management and Monitoring of Factory Assets Smart manufacturing is not just a vision of the future – it’s happening now. For manufacturers already adopting digital manufacturing principles and technologies, the rewards are unprecedented: next-level autonomy, holistically-informed decision-making, and ultimate operational visibility.Hexagon is developing new solutions to enable that journey, connecting systems end-to-end from design to inspection. Visitors to HxGN LIVE will get a sneak preview of HxGN SFx | Asset Management, a new cloud-based tool providing advanced remote monitoring and resource management to reduce downtime and drive efficiency gains.Whether you’re looking to take the next step in statistical analysis, reduce siloes with cloud connectivity, or discover ways to enhance productivity, be sure to check out HxGN SFx | Asset Management at HxGN LIVE.

Getting in the Zone at HxGN LIVE is a unique opportunity to try out cutting-edge technology and get key insights from the experts behind these innovations.

But that’s not all there is to experience this year. Explore the Manufacturing Intelligence Track to see what hands-ontraining and breakout sessions are available to help you get an even more in-depth experience of these technologies and more.
