Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division will be showcasing digital production solutions from its Production Software portfolio at EMO Hannover 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for metalworking scheduled for September 16–21 in Germany. The highlight of the booth is a demo case that will take visitors through virtual reality, into the manufacturing processes of the future.
This year’s EMO is themed “Smart Technologies Driving Tomorrow’s Production.” It shows 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.
In the demo area on the stand, visitors will 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. The Get-Together Area on the stand offers space for exchange of experience and networking.
In addition, interested parties can register directly at the exhibition stand for individual visits to the completely newly established Production Software Experience Centre at Hexagon’s Neu-Isenburg site, to see for themselves the future of intelligent CNC production, today.
EMO Hannover 2019 will also feature further solutions from the metrology portfolio of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division in Hall 6.
