Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Spotlights HxGN SMART Quality at Smart Manufacturing Experience

Hexagon's Scott Mahrle Discusses "How Quality Fits into Smart Manufacturing" at Knowledge Bar Tech Session

24 April 2018
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced today it will showcase HxGN SMART Quality in Booth #1215 at the Smart Manufacturing Experience at the Boston Convention Center, April 30 – May 2, 2018. The foundation of Hexagon’s digital thread for smarter manufacturing, HxGN SMART Quality is an enterprise IT platform used by manufacturers to collect all quality-related data. This centralized hub handles quality data throughout the product lifecycle and provides deep insight into resource utilization resulting in process optimization and productivity improvements. Hexagon will also feature the new AICON PrimeScan scanner and a portable 7-axis ROMER Absolute Arm. Two advanced solutions will be shown in Hexagon's booth including an automated part loading cell comprised of a TIGO SF CMM with robotics, and a robotic measurement cell featuring the automated Leica Absolute Tracker AT960 and Leica T-Scan 5 system.  

On Tuesday, May 1, Hexagon thought leader Scott Mahrle will present a Knowledge Bar Tech Session in Booth #322 at 11:00am. Mr. Mahrle is the HxGN SMART Quality lead and Business Development Manager at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence North America. His presentation is entitled "How Quality Fits into Smart Manufacturing". Mahrle will cover how connectivity to quality systems and related resources translates to quicker reactions and minimized downtime for manufacturers. He will reveal how better statistics may not translate to more data, as the result could be less measuring and more throughput. During the Knowledge Bar Tech Session, Mahrle will also discuss how decentralized information delivers autonomous decision-making directly at the point of action. 

HxGN SMART Quality utilizes data from various measurement systems across multiple facilities to provide a company-wide view of operations. Built-in statistical analysis tools provide operators and managers with actionable intelligence for improved decision-making and proactive response to workflow issues. The software's extensive resource management and workflow optimization toolset integrates quality management activities seamlessly into day-to-day operations. The scalable solution is built on an open architecture to fit existing manufacturing setups. HxGN SMART Quality is compatible with the complete software range from Q-DAS, the Hexagon-owned statistical process control specialist, and Hexagon’s PULSE environmental monitoring system.
