Hexagon’s Production Software Portfolio Merges Virtual and Real Manufacturing at EMO 2019
Exciting demo cases show the future of intelligent CNC production
July 25, 2019: Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division will be showcasing digital production solutions from its Production Software portfolioat EMO Hannover, the world’s leading trade fair for metalworking. The highlight of the booth is a demo case that will take visitors through virtual reality, into the manufacturing processes of the future.
This year’s EMO, which runs from September 16 to 21, is themed: Smart technologies driving tomorrow’s production. It shows how digital and real manufacturing worlds merge in the production of tomorrow, and how smart technologies mesh seamlessly with each other.
Visitors to Hexagon’s Production Software stand in Hall 9 can use virtual reality glasses to see the complete construction and production of a motorcycle saddle,starting with 3D scanning through a Hexagon measuring arm and reverse engineering.
Based on the 3D model, machining is optimally programmed in the EDGECAM CAM system. The subsequent NC code simulation on the virtual machine with NCSIMUL ensures a collision-free machining process. The final program can then be transferred directly to the machine and started with no loss of time when retracting.
The networking of these technologies across the entire production chain, from design and engineering, and production to metrology, enables efficient, safe and future-proof processes.
Andreas Seum, General Manager of DACH Production Software, says: “Hexagon’s Production Software business has a range of digital manufacturing solutions, which also incorporates detailed specialist knowledge of the CNC processes in the various industries.
“Here at EMO, we want to bring to life how we can help users not only develop complex and precise components in the shortest possible time, but also immediately transfer them to automated production. The consideration of the entire manufacturing process is a decisive criterion for increasing process reliability and productivity. ”
In the demo area on the stand visitors have the opportunity to get to know the extensive production software portfolio, with more than ten different software solutions, including EDGECAM, WORKNC, VISI, NCSIMUL and FASYS. The Get-Together Area on the stand offers space for exchange of experience and networking.
In addition, interested parties can register directly at the exhibition stand for individual visits to the completely newly established Production Software Experience Center at Hexagon’s Neu-Isenburg site, to see for themselves the future of intelligent CNC production, today.
EMO 2019 will also feature further solutions from the metrology portfolio of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division in Hall 6.
When? 16 to 21 September 2019 Where? Hanover Trade Fair Center, Hall 9 in the product area “Software for Product Development, Machinery and Production” in position E03.
As the world’s leading trade fair for the metalworking industry, EMO Hannover is characterized by breadth and depth of supply across all production areas as well as by the large number of innovations shown. The spectrum ranges from machining and forming machining as the nucleus of production, precision tools, accessories and control technology, system elements and components for factory automation, to interlinking equipment and industrial electronics. The biennial fair attracts trade visitors and decision-makers from all areas of metalworking technology. In 2017, around 130,000 trade visitors were counted. EMO Hannover is organized by the Association of German Machine Tool Factories on behalf of Cecimo (European Committee for the Cooperation of the Machine Tool Industry).
