Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has announced it will showcase the potential of the digital thread at HxGN LIVE 2018, Hexagon’s cross-industry technology conference being held at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA from 12-15 June 2018.
The annual event draws a global attendance of industry professionals in pursuit of intelligent solutions for smart manufacturing. The conference program will provide an enriched learning environment where attendees will discover how the digital thread weaves design and engineering, production, and metrology together into one agile, data-driven ecosystem.
HxGN LIVE will allow manufacturers to learn more about process automation, closed-loop manufacturing, and connecting CAE, CAD, CAM and metrology technology via the digital thread. The conference stages more than 120,000 sq. ft. of Hexagon technologies, nearly 500 sessions and 60+ exhibiting sponsors. The Zone technology expo features the digital thread at work as a common communication framework with feedback loops that embed continuous improvement into the product life-cycle.
HxGN SMART Quality, providing an online quality data and measurement resource management platform, will be one of the prime technical highlights in The Zone. The innovative solution delivers information automation to quality management, so manufacturers and quality control professionals can shape smarter workflows and actively improve efficiency and productivity. Many platforms enable manufacturers to analyse quality data, some even aggregate results from across different areas of the business to provide greater visibility into the wider manufacturing operation, only HxGN SMART Quality offers all this functionality alongside an extensive resource, asset and workflow management tool-set, allowing users to not only use data to inform decision making, but also to implement change within the system itself. The information HxGN SMART Quality provides takes the guesswork out of improving process strategies and the means to roll-out changes across the organisation, improving efficiency, ensuring compliance with standards and minimizing risk.
“This year at HxGN LIVE, attendees will experience the full impact of the digital thread through Manufacturing Intelligence Track sessions, expert forums, user group meetings and live demonstrations provided by highly knowledgeable product developers and application engineers,” states Norbert Hanke, President and CEO of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. “The power of predictive quality within the Smart Factory will become evident, as they gain deep insights into production and multiple areas of the supply chain. A new frontier unfolds as product quality becomes a shared responsibility between stakeholders at every stage of the process.”
