Given the pressures of a highly competitive market and the increasing demand for greener business practices, manufacturers need smart and sustainable approaches to productivity.
3D printing offers transformative potential in the efficient design and production of better products. Over the years, the ever-more viable cost and precision of additive manufacturing has made it an attractive option for industrial-level production. Now, when we talk about Industry 4.0 and smarter manufacturing, 3D printing plays a central part in this manufacturing revolution.
At Hannover Messe 2021, Hexagon introduced its concept of the Smart Additive Manufacturing (AM) environment, designed to address many of today’s AM challenges and help speed up the industrialisation of AM technology. This allows manufacturers to achieve a full digital transformation based on digital twin technology and validation of models through metrology in the AM value chain.
In this video from Hannover Messe, Mathieu Pérennou, Director of Sales EMEA – Design and Manufacturing Process Simulation Solutions, Hexagon, presents Hexagon’s end-to-end AM solution.
Watch this video to discover how:
- this connected AM ecosystem – spanning Hexagon, partner and third-party solutions – offers efficiency and optimisation opportunities across design and engineering through to quality and analysis, such as machine learning and design of experiments (DOE)
- Schubert and Hexagon worked together to solve complex part and process development challenges with the AM-driven lightweight redesign of a gripper for a packaging machine
