by Kyle Pheland on August 15, 2018 From Thought Leader, Industry Focus, Technology

Visit us at IMTS on booth 135202.

In part one of this blog series, we explored how visitors to the Hexagon booth at IMTS 2018 will be challenged to Rethink Quality, and integrate it into the design and engineering stage of the manufacturing process and product lifecycle. After ensuring component manufacturability and downstream production productivity with computer-aided engineering (CAE) and simulation solutions from MSC Software, visitors will now move along the digital thread to learn how computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD CAM) and complementary technology from Vero Software enables manufacturers to maintain the design throughout this next phase of the production cycle. In this blog, you will learn how the technology at the Hexagon booth will challenge attendees to integrate quality into the production phase of the manufacturing process.

As we continue the journey of showcasing the complete production lifecycle of an automotive engine block, we are now tasked with making designs a reality. Whether it’s machining, forming, casting, moulding, joining or 3D printing, or a combination of several processes, the production floor is where components, and our engine block takes its shape.

Part of Hexagon since 2014, Vero Software enables manufacturers to embed quality into production, thus ensuring that the design intent is maintained through the production cycle, all while improving productivity and continuously delivering high-quality components. As a leading provider of CAD CAM software, Vero Software aids the design and manufacturing processes, providing solutions for the tooling, production engineering, sheet metal, metal fabrication, stone and woodworking industries. At the Vero Software kiosk in the Hexagon booth, attendees will have the chance to learn more about Edgecam Inspect, a full featured, easy to use solution for users wanting fast creation of machine measurement cycles with quick, efficient tool path creation and generation of reliable, measurement results.

Hexagon CAD CAM software not only gives customers confidence that their manufacturing processes are producing quality, but also delivers a platform for users to maximise their potential. Our products are designed for flexibility and can be integrated consultatively to give customers the right solution for their needs. Hexagon’s production software tools embrace manufacturing excellence, improve process efficiencies, and ensure reliable delivery of quality products.

At IMTS, you can learn more about Vero Software by visiting booth 133114 in the East Building. Experts will be on hand helping product manufacturers improve productivity and continuously deliver high-quality components.
