COVID-19 has had a huge impact on our daily and working lives, but it is likely that this is only a taste of the impact to come if the world does not get a handle on climate change.
Today, climate change is accelerating at an alarming rate. Energy usage and carbon emissions are increasing at unsustainable levels. At this point we know that sustainability is not a choice – it is a need.
The manufacturing industry bears a great deal of responsibility in moving the world toward a more sustainable future. But while sustainability poses many challenges, it also presents opportunities.
The ongoing digital transformation of manufacturing will not only make processes and outcomes more sustainable, but will deliver greater efficiencies and profitability.
Leveraging a unique portfolio of digital technology, Hexagon is empowering an autonomous future and supporting manufacturers on this transformative journey. In this presentation from Hannover Messe 2021, I explore how quality is at the heart of smarter manufacturing and what you can do to modernise and streamline your quality workflow for greater and greener productivity.
Watch the video to learn about:
- The importance of advancing from comparative to absolute metrology, data storage, and taking small steps in autonomous manufacturing that offer scalability
- Why manufacturing silos need to be broken down and the role actionable quality data plays in this journey
- The major sustainability challenges facing industry and the opportunities it presents
- Two smarter manufacturing initiatives that are easy to implement and can start delivering value today, as well as the technologies that enable these initiatives
