Digital Transformation of Aerospace Manufacturing on Display at Paris Air Show 2019

Hexagon Reveals at the Paris Air Show 2019 How Connected, Data-Driven Systems Enable Aerospace Manufacturers to Deploy Smarter Processes That Enhance Productivity

06 June 2019

Hexagon will demonstrate at the Paris Air Show 2019 between 17 and 23 June how it is innovating to meet the fast-evolving needs of the aerospace and defence industries with a range of connected software and hardware systems.

Visitors to the world’s largest aerospace exhibition will see first hand how discrete software and hardware solutions from Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division connect to form tool chains that lay the foundations for data-driven aerospace manufacturing ecosystems. On Hexagon’s stand a continuous digital process, using digital twin and equipment monitoring technology, shows the development of an aeroengine blade from the design and engineering stages, through production, to the final quality inspection of the finished blade by the GLOBAL S HTA CMM solution.

Hexagon’s software and hardware systems underpin aerospace manufacturing at every level of design, production and final assembly on all sizes of parts and types of aircraft.

They also support aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul. A Leica Absolute Tracker ATS600 on the stand will display the benefit of using large-volume 3D measurement for large structural assembly.

There will also be an opportunity to see Hexagon’s Geospatial division’s demonstration of a 3D flight training simulator based on Luciad technology. It combines static flight plans and dynamic aeronautical data, and provides real-time and post-training feedback and evaluation of any deviations from the designated flight plan and the disruptions that might cause.

Hexagon will be exhibiting on stand D157, hall 2B of the Paris Air Show 2019 between 17 and 23 June.
