Although many of these requirements have remained unchanged for decades, the surge in popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles is having a significant impact on vehicle body structure materials, design and manufacturing.
Hexagon’s technology has been assisting major car makers for decades, and our portfolio of digital solutions is now easing the transition to a 100% EV future. Hexagon digitalises and automates processes to help deliver optimised body structures that are more cost-effective, safe and sustainable. Advanced production software and metrology capabilities combine with state-of-the-art design software to create an end-to-end digital solution for high-quality vehicle body structures.
Design and engineering phase
With Hexagon’s innovations in manufacturing technology, users can digitally simulate and optimise product design and engineering to ensure component manufacturability, production productivity and output quality.
Maintain a digital thread through production, optimise machine tools, measure environmental variances and prevent downtime with predictive data analyses.
Automate and digitalise quality measurement with our world-leading metrology hardware and software, creating a bridge between the real and digital worlds.
Deploy Hexagon’s sensor software systems to transform siloed and disconnected processes into an integrated, data-driven manufacturing ecosystem that captures and creates value across the product lifecycle, enabling new business models and automating workflows to become increasingly autonomous, efficient and sustainable.
