Virtual meets reality at EMO Hannover

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division will be showcasing digital production solutions from its Production Software portfolio at EMO Hannover 2019.

The highlight on the stand will be a demo case that will take visitors through virtual reality, into the manufacturing processes of the future.

EMO 2019 is themed ‘Smart technologies driving tomorrow's production’ and will demonstrate how digital and real manufacturing worlds merge in the production of tomorrow, and how smart technologies mesh seamlessly with each other.

Visitors to Hexagon’s Production Software stand in Hall 9 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 optimally 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.

Andreas Seum, general manager of Dach Production Software, says: "Hexagon’s Production Software business has a range of digital manufacturing solutions, which also incorporates detailed specialist knowledge of the CNC processes in the various industries.

“Here at EMO, we want to bring to life how we can help users not only develop complex and precise components in the shortest possible time, but also immediately transfer them to automated production. The consideration of the entire manufacturing process is a decisive criterion for increasing process reliability and productivity. "

On the demo/networking area on the stand visitors have the opportunity to get to know the extensive production software portfolio, with more than ten different software solutions, including Edgecam, WorkNC, Visi, NCSimul and Fasys.

In addition, interested parties can register directly at the exhibition stand for individual visits to the newly established Production Software Experience Centre at Hexagon's Neu-Isenburg site in Germany, to see the future of intelligent CNC production for themselves.

EMO 2019 will also feature further solutions from Hexagon’s metrology portfolio in hall 6.
