Hexagon’s broad additive manufacturing (AM) end-to-end solution portfolio helps manufacturers achieve the next level of quality and productivity for AM. Our products and solutions support manufacturers as they plan, optimise, validate, and replicate high quality additively manufactured metal or polymer parts robustly, accurately and quickly. Our solution portfolio covers complete AM process chains starting from early ICME-related AM materials development or choice, through DfAM, including generative design and build optimisation, to post-treatment and CNC machining for parts finishing, plus world-class metrology capabilities for quality assurance.

Leverage Simulation, Data and Metrology to Build Quality Parts Through Additive Manufacturing
Additive Manufacturing of polymers is transitioning from rapid prototyping to a true industrial production technique. While it brings valuable opportunities to the industry it also comes with a series of challenges for the engineers: the reliability of the mechanical properties of the final part still has some uncertainty and is not fully supported by standard engineering tools. To support this transition, the engineering workflow also daily applied for traditional manufacturing processes, needs to be reviewed and adapted to facilitate the introduction of new technologies. A holistic simulation-based approach for additive manufacturing of plastics and composites is proposed.


Intelligent Portable Scanning Technologies for Reverse Engineering
What do we mean by Reverse Engineering? How can this process be used throughout the product manufacturing cycle together with Hexagon's portable measuring and 3D scanning tools? The importance of creating a digital copy of a physical part and process it quickly for a variety of applications: from the initial concept design to prototyping, engineering simulations and final manufacturing.


Successful, simulation based DfAM: Combining Generative Design and Process Simulation
Additive Manufacturing is known to be a promising technology due to its geometrical freedom and its overall flexibility. Without proper Design for Additive Manufacturing -DfAM-, this often proves to be quite difficult to achieve. In this session, the speakers will show how a good and fluent simulation workflow can considerably reduce product development time of AM parts, easily create competitive, lightweight designs and prevents manufacturing issues. See how the development can become much more efficient while enabling a tailored and successful AM design. Understand how process simulation helps you analyse manufacturing and post-processing and optimizes parameters such as stress and distortion, beforehand. It tweaks the parameters so that finally there will be a repeatable, hassle-free production.
