Ensure that design intent is maintained through the production cycle to improve productivity and continuously deliver high-quality components.


Production is the stage of the manufacturing process where designs become reality. Whether it’s machining, forming, casting, moulding, joining or 3D printing, or a combination of several processes, the production floor is where components take shape. It’s the manufacturing process phase where productivity really matters; efficiency and throughput are essential to remain competitive; costs must be controlled and downtime avoided. Production is where product quality is set in stone, metal, wood or composite – whatever material you’re working with – and the pursuit of manufacturing ‘right first time’ is increasingly high priority.

Manufacturing quality products requires production software designed for the task at hand. The Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence production software portfolio includes specialised packages to generate, manage and optimise toolpaths in a range of industry and material applications. Our software solutions address the requirements of the tooling, production engineering, sheet metal, metal fabrication, stone and woodworking industries. Despite these diverse applications, our production software solutions share a common focus on driving manufacturing efficiencies and adding value to operations.

Hexagon supports production engineers and technicians with a large range of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD CAM) software that enables users to produce quality parts. Quality in the production phase ensures that design intent is maintained throughout the production process and into the product’s service life, managing costs and improving productivity. Our CAD CAM solutions are used by manufacturers around the world to program CNC machine tools and execute manufacturing processes as designed, whether it’s for producing prototypes, finished products or production runs.

Hexagon CAD CAM software not only gives customers confidence that their manufacturing processes are producing quality, but also delivers a platform for users to maximise their potential. Our products are designed for flexibility and can be integrated consultatively to give customers the right solution for their needs.

Hexagon’s production software tools embrace manufacturing excellence, improve process efficiencies, and ensure reliable delivery of quality products.
