Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence announced it is setting the stage for HxGN LIVE 2017, Hexagon’s international conference, at the luxury Venetian Resort Hotel, Las Vegas, NV from 13-16 June 2017.
Professionals from around the world attend this four-day event showcasing the latest data-driven developments enabled by Hexagon’s newest metrology and manufacturing solutions for the Smart Factory. This year’s theme ‘the Shape of Potential’ sets the stage for attendees looking to re-engineer product development from concept to reality in a connected world where data informs the process every step of the way. The conference’s centrepiece is The Zone, which displays more than 50 000 sq. ft. of Hexagon technologies and more than 60 exhibiting sponsors.
The Manufacturing Intelligence track will address the most pressing questions for manufacturers who want to leverage the benefits of Smart Factory practices. How can factories become more connected and work smarter? What is data-driven manufacturing? The speaker line-up of Hexagon customers, partners, special guests and in-house experts will answer those questions and present compelling stories about automation, process control, closed loop manufacturing, Internet of Things (IoT), and other successful data-driven applications addressing all aspects of industrial manufacturing. Attendees will have access to Hexagon’s metrology, statistical process control, sheet metal design and costing and CAD/CAM solution portfolios and experience live demonstrations with experienced and knowledgeable product developers and application engineers.
