HxGN LIVE Las Vegas is underway and the Metrology Track kicked off in style today as Hexagon Metrology President and CEO Norbert Hanke took to the stage for the opening keynote.

Entitled “Sensing. Thinking. Acting.” this inspirational address explored the evolution of Hexagon Metrology’s offerings since the acquisitions of Vero Software and Q-DAS and introduced a new philosophy about the interaction of measurement technology with the wider manufacturing environment. The keynote also featured real-world examples from customers who have embraced this intelligent manufacturing approach, using data to better control their processes and actively intervene to deliver quality that drives productivity.

HxGN LIVE is the international conference that brings together and showcases the power of Hexagon technologies. The first of two conferences for 2015, HxGN LIVE Las Vegas welcomes more than 3,500 attendees including customers and partners looking to access the latest trends in geospatial and industrial enterprise technologies, empowering them to do great things with far-reaching impact.

Under the theme “Great Stories Start Here”, HxGN LIVE is organised along six tracks and presents an exciting lineup of must-see technologies, exclusive presentations by industry experts, 400+ sessions, hands-on training and networking opportunities with peers from around the world.

Hexagon Metrology is joined at HxGN LIVE by customers from a range of industries whose success relies upon the speed of innovation and confidence in quality that its technology is designed to guarantee, and several will be sharing their experiences through the week. Sessions will be presented by representatives of the Fraunhofer Institute, Rethink Robotics, Zimmer and MIT, as well as industry experts from Hexagon Metrology and beyond.

“Hexagon Metrology customers are active in many industry segments but share a common desire to improve productivity,” said Norbert Hanke. “Our challenge is to support customers in achieving this outcome and as we continue to take a more active role in manufacturing, it is essential that we work with them to learn and innovate. It is a pleasure to welcome so many customers and partners to Las Vegas and hear their stories.”

HxGN LIVE Las Vegas runs 1-4 June at the MGM Grand Hotel, with a live stream of activities on hxgntv.com giving innovators around the world real-time access. Anyone who missed the Metrology Keynote can catch up online, while footage of track sessions and live demonstrations will be posted throughout the week.
