Hexagon Metrology explores the future of manufacturing at HxGN LIVE

Keynote reveals focus on integrated solutions while sessions highlight new automated technologies

12 juni 2015

Hexagon Metrology today announced today that over 3,500 attendees from more than 70 countries convened at Hexagon's HxGN LIVE event in Las Vegas, Nevada last week.

This year's theme was “Sensing. Thinking. Acting.” and in his keynote, Norbert Hanke, Hexagon Metrology President & CEO explained why the company is aligning technologies in these areas to create a closed-loop, data-driven manufacturing strategy. Addressing a large crowd in the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Hanke discussed how Hexagon Metrology’s heritage in sensing affects the need for greater production speed and confidence in product quality. Offering insight into the company’s vision since acquiring statistical process control specialist Q-DAS and CAD/CAM leader Vero Software, the presentation showed how quality can drive productivity through an intelligent integrated manufacturing approach.

The technological backbone of this approach is automation, and the conference agenda featured industry professionals and technology users presenting sessions on the transformative power of automated solutions in manufacturing. Automation cells formed Hexagon Metrology's centrepiece in The Zone, which showcased more than 50 000 sq. ft. of Hexagon technologies alongside over 60 exhibiting sponsors. The Metrology Track offered insightful sessions from Hexagon Metrology experts and guest speakers, including reports on measurement and inspection trends, new technology previews and interactive demonstrations.

“At HxGN LIVE, we explored innovation within metrology and beyond. By enabling our customers to not just gather data, but also to be able to process it and use it to inform future actions, we can make a difference to all kinds of manufacturers,” explained Hanke. “Automation offers us new and exciting potential for continued advancement as we help the manufacturing community sense, think and act their way to better productivity.”

Speakers included Julie Shah, MIT Associate Professor and leader of the Interactive Robotics Group of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory; Gardner Carrick, VP of Strategic Initiatives at The Manufacturing Institute; Simon-Markus Kothe, Group Manager of Machining Technology at the Fraunhofer Institute and his colleague Juan Ramirez; J. Corwin Carlson, Director of Sales-National Accounts at Rethink Robotics and Charlie Isaacs, CTO for Customer Connection at Salesforce.com. Visitors could interact with speakers in Ask the Expert sections, while spectacular networking events gave opportunities to chat with peers.

In June 2016 the conference moves to Anaheim, California, while this November, HxGN LIVE makes its debut in Hong Kong – visit hxgnlive.com for more information. Highlights from HxGN LIVE 2015 Las Vegas are available to view online at hxgntv.com.
