Hexagon to Showcase Demos at EMO 2019
Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division will showcase digital production solutions from its production software portfolio at EMO Hannover 2019 (September 16-21), the world's leading trade fair for metalworking.
Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division will showcase digital production solutions from its production software portfolio at EMO Hannover 2019 (September 16-21), the world's leading trade fair for metalworking. The highlight of the booth is a demo case that will take visitors through virtual reality, into the manufacturing processes of the future.
Visitors to the company’s stand can use virtual reality glasses to see the complete construction and production of a motorcycle saddle, starting with 3D scanning through a Hexagon measuring arm and reverse engineering. Based on the 3D model, machining is programmed in the EDGECAM CAM system. The subsequent NC code simulation on the virtual machine with NCSIMUL ensures a collision-free machining process. The final program can then be transferred directly to the machine and started with no loss of time when retracting. The networking of these technologies across the entire production chain, from design and engineering, and production to metrology, enables efficient, safe and future-proof processes.
In the demo area on the stand, visitors have the opportunity to get to know the extensive production software portfolio of more than 10 different software solutions, including EDGECAM, WORKNC, VISI, NCSIMUL and FASYS. The stand’s Get-Together Area offers space for exchange of experience and networking. In addition, interested parties can register directly at the exhibition stand for individual visits to the recently established Production Software Experience Center at Hexagon's Neu-Isenburg site, to see for themselves the future of intelligent CNC production, today.
EMO 2019 will also feature further solutions from the metrology portfolio of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division.
