Discover how you can make smart manufacturing real

With industry still reeling from the effects of the pandemic, digital transformation is considered to be an essential part of the recovery. McKinsey reports that responses to COVID-19 have speeded up the adoption of digital technologies by several years, and manufacturers can’t afford not to be part of this digital revolution. At the virtual Hannover Messe 2021 event, Hexagon will be demonstrating why now, more than ever, is the time to invest in your digital ecosystem and showing you how to ensure your investments deliver value to your business both today and in the future. Visit us at the virtual expo, learn from customers and experts in our live streams, and discuss your challenges with our industry teams to see how your business can accelerate towards a smarter, more autonomous approach to manufacturing.  Join Hexagon at Hannover Messe and learn:
  • How your industry peers are digitalising, connecting and integrating processes to improve efficiency, quality and productivity
  • How your business can create value from data it already has
  • Why smart manufacturing solutions should fit your business today and scale easily to support the needs of tomorrow
  • Why autonomy matters to manufacturing and how you can build autonomy into your operations
  • What role technology has to play in ensuring a sustainable future for our planet

Wherever you are on your digital transformation journey and whatever you make, Hexagon can help you make it smarter today and set the foundations for a more sustainable future.

As the automotive industry works towards more sustainable transportation, electrification is creating new challenges for manufacturers. While electric vehicles (EVs) are in some ways simpler than combustion engine vehicles, this does not mean they are easier to design or manufacture. This presentation explores how smart manufacturing technologies are helping accelerate innovation in the EV space, from simulating vehicle performance to producing and inspecting parts with increasingly tight tolerances.

According to the World Economic Forum, 29% of work tasks are performed by machines or computers and this is expected to grow to 52% in 2025. As the world digitalises, the demands for actionable quality data will only increase, driving quality departments towards modernising inspection processes. Automation is becoming essential, especially given the shortage of skilled workers in the industry. Deploying automated processes in an efficient and effective way can be the difference between success and failure. Join this presentation to learn which tasks in your quality workflow are best suited to automation and how to implement them successfully.

According to the Asialink business bureau, Indonesia recently became the 10th-largest manufacturing nation in the world. It’s large manufacturing sector accounts for almost a quarter of the nation’s total GDP and employs over a fifth of Indonesia’s working age population (around 25 million workers). Put into perspective, Indonesia’s manufacturing sector is now larger than the manufacturing sectors of the United Kingdom, Russian and Mexico. In this session, we will discuss 'Making Indonesia 4.0' roadmap and how Hexagon is contributing to New Age manufacturing within the country.
