EuroBlech 2018: Experience the digital Thread

Our Hexagon booth partner

Meet Simufact at the common booth with AICON and FTI under the umbrella of Hexagon in hall 11, booth G93. Together, we will present how design, engineering, manufacturing and measurement technology can be combined into a digital process chain for sheet metal working.


What to expect at the Hexagon booth?

Seat Cross member showcase project

Simufact shows you together with AICON and FTI how the Hexagon solutions combine the production phases design and engineering (CAD, CAE), production (CAM) and metrology (Metrology) into an agile, data-driven ecosystem. These intelligent solutions can increase productivity through quality improvements and give you a decisive competitive advantage. Reflecting the digital thread idea, the three partners initiated the seat cross member showcase in order to show the visitors how the solutions can be combined in a sheet metal working process chain.
