Making better use of raw materials

Digitalisation helps raw materials processing firms get more from resources.

Ready to learn how Hexagon's capabilities can empower your business?

Raw materials are essential to many industries and human activities. But with resources being finite, it’s essential that material processing companies build efficient processes to minimise waste and ensure raw material utilisation is as high as possible. Hexagon’s solutions enable material processors to design and optimise processes to efficiently deliver the raw materials that global industry needs.

Industrial facilities

Operate and maintain phase

Leverage data from the planning, design and build phases to create an operational twin that connects people, processes and events throughout the entire industrial facility lifecycle.


Construct phase

Maintain a data-driven approach to orchestrate the entire construction phase, creating a 3D model of productivity and efficiency — with higher quality, fewer reworks and less waste — while layering 4D cost and 5D BIM scheduling data throughout the project.

Using raw materials wisely is an important pillar of global sustainability efforts. See how Hexagon’s smart manufacturing solutions can help raw materials processing plants reduce waste and boost efficiency through digitalisation, paving the way for more sustainable use of precious raw material resources.

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.

Inspection phase

Automate and digitalise quality measurement with our world-leading metrology hardware and software, creating a bridge between the real and digital worlds.

Digital transformation

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.
