What we do

We empower the makers of the world to take imagination and make it real.

Offering a uniquely powerful combination of software and hardware solutions, Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division supports innovators to optimise every stage of the product lifecycle from ideation, design, engineering, production, operations, quality management and service life.

As a cutting-edge partner solving seemingly impossible challenges, we also provide advice, support, insight and intelligence throughout the product lifecycle. Our expert teams can guide on product design, materials, processes, partners and much more.

We empower innovation by being innovators ourselves. We equip designers, engineers, production and quality leaders with the solutions, products and experiences they need to sustainably support their customers’ needs bringing agility from imagination to reality.

Our solutions put data to work to transform your operations with insight. Hexagon technology enables manufacturers to harness and deploy data from all the key stages of the manufacturing process. Underpinned by the unique combination of software and hardware, our unparalleled portfolio of digital manufacturing technologies spans CAE solutions for design and engineering, CAD CAM and complementary software for production applications, metrology hardware and software solutions, as well as data management and analytics tools.

Harnessing the combined potential of software and hardware, we empower makers to redefine what’s real. Our enterprise portfolio offers game-changing multi-dimensional technology with sensor, software and real-time data solutions combining to create virtual prototyping environments where makers can explore and experiment with confidence.

This fusion of the physical world and the digital world – where they are no longer separate – is transformative for operations, offering complete line-of-sight to every possible scenario, enabling planning and predicting issues before they occur. It helps makers to achieve their transformation goals, gain a competitive advantage and differentiate their business.

Innovation and the role it plays in unlocking manufacturing-wide optimisation are key to creating a sustainable future, where sustainable industrial development and smarter use of the Earth’s resources allow the made and natural worlds to exist in harmony.

We empower makers to shape the sustainable future of their industries by engaging with their multistakeholder value chain. Our solutions enable manufacturers to innovate and optimise like never before, freeing you to create better products in new innovative ways.

Across all industries from aerospace, automotive and electronics to healthcare and life sciences, our experience enables organisations of all sizes to gain a competitive advantage and to strive for carbon neutrality by 2050.
