Celebrating Success at HxGN LIVE Hong Kong


Is it over already?

Although HxGN LIVE Hong Kong has come to a close, the end of this conference marks the beginning of impactful, game-changing thought for Hexagon and its customers.

With so many of our customers based in the Asia-Pacific region, hosting HxGN LIVE in Hong Kong presented the perfect opportunity for attendees to experience an event tailored to the particular needs of their markets and business culture and the opportunity to network with industry professionals from around the world.

We are thrilled to have hosted more than 3,000 attendees from all over the globe, who all came together with one goal in mind: to create smart change in a constantly changing world.

Conference activities mirrored Hexagon’s core principle of shaping smart change: shape matters. The conference exemplified the shape of change, the shape of progress and the shape of things to come. Ola Rollén said it best: “The world we live in is more dynamic and complex than ever before. Challenges and opportunities are taking shape and changing constantly.”

HxGN LIVE Hong Kong started off Wednesday with an opening keynote from Ola Rollén, followed by Li Hongquan, vice president of Hexagon and president of Hexagon China, who shared a first-hand account of how Hexagon is unleashing innovation and shaping smart change in China. We also heard keynotes from Geospatial, Geosystems, Metrology/Manufacturing, Process, Power & Marine and Synergy.

Thursday’s events included the Metrology/Manufacturing Automation and Industry 4.0 Summit, in addition to the gala awards banquet: a special evening event that honors our partners. The event included the Hexagon Shaping Change Recognition Programme, which recognises customer excellence in visionary practices, global leadership, partnership and innovation.

After three days of thought-provoking breakout sessions, hands-on demos in The Zone and unlimited networking opportunities, we hope you leave Hong Kong with plenty of LinkedIn invites, business cards and fresh ideas.

We want to thank all those who attended HxGN LIVE Hong Kong. This new experience brought together the best minds from around the world and provided them new ways to innovate, motivate and create smart change.

Stay tuned and continue to check in at for the latest on Hexagon’s upcoming HxGN LIVE conferences. Next stop: Anaheim, CA, USA, in June 2016. We hope to see you there!

HxGN LIVE Hong Kong may have come to a close, but important work continues – work that will ultimately make the world a better place. And that’s shaping smart change.


Experiencing the Future


The world changes fast and technology must reply faster to changes to support business development as best it can. However, each country has its own characteristics and its business needs, and regions are moving at different speeds. We can see the results right in front of us: during the last 20 years, the Asia-Pacific region enjoyed very quick growth and nowadays it is probably producing around 50% of the world’s goods. For , the international HxGN LIVE Conference, this year held for the first time ever in Hong Kong, was a very important meeting that represented a big chance to learn how industries operate in far East region and to understand what is happening there, thousands of kilometers away from my home in Italy.

Moreover, the main players’ keynotes and an amazing range of must-see technologies gave attendees the opportunity to learn more about the full range of Hexagon’s metrology technology, as well as its smart city, smart utilities, and safety and infrastructure applications. What I’ve seen here on the Metrology/Manufacturing track is several technologies, in just as many fields, sharing the same objective: increasing quality by accelerating manufacturing processes to keep up with modern production standards.

The joint experience of speakers from top research institutions and Hexagon technical experts has highlighted how leading companies are working intensively to improve their manufacturing processes. Among the many different strategies, applied metrology undoubtedly plays a key role in gaining competitive edge: trends and applications in high-precision machinery, main features and expectations of robotic inspection technology, and how to add precision robotic tools to the workforce are just a few examples of hot topics in the sessions here at HxGN LIVE.

Theory matters, but practice is essential. After the visionary opening keynotes, the Metrology/Manufacturing track moved into sessions focused on much more concrete, practical solutions (both hardware and software), presented in six different areas by applications, from automotive to aerospace, machining, tooling and so on. Offering far more than a traditional exhibition: the most relevant solutions are placed in the specific context that describes a particular stage of a real manufacturing process in greater detail.

The HxGN LIVE conference in Hong Kong is the place where change became reality. Technology is alive and Tecn’è can’t be missing a single development: are you ready to experience the future with us?

Big Data: Now in 3D Metrology


Here at HxGN LIVE Hong Kong, I’ve noticed that data is increasingly on people’s minds. During the opening keynote, Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén talked about how data can close the gap between ‘what is’ and ‘what should be’. We’re seeing this need for data everywhere. Here at the conference, there are installations about smart cities, factories of the future, how data is making farms more productive, making mines safer. And of course, all these applications demand Big Data.

Big Data is the proliferation of data from various systems, devices and applications. Its size makes it challenging to capture, manage, process and analyse using traditional solutions.

But not all Big Data is created equal. You probably heard a lot about Big Data generated by social networks and online sources as a way to understand consumer preferences. However, Big Data from industrial sources holds even more potential business value. These values are beginning to be better understood across various sectors including industrial metrology. The value is high due to the nature of the industry sectors such as automotive, aerospace and electronics, whose high-value assets production lines churn out products worth billions of dollars per year.

The metrology industry is contributing to both the complexity and potential efficiency improvements related to Big Data. Metrology is becoming much more integrated into manufacturers’ businesses and regarded as a contributor to both higher quality and improved utilisation rates.

In a culmination of various industry mega-trends including: shift to non-contact area measurements, automation of inspection processes and inline 100% dimensional process control; part measurement data is ever increasing in volume, richness and usability. That’s true, of course, if one has the right tools to understand and act on it.

With the evolution of underlying technologies such as LEDs, optics, chips, computing and networking, 3D metrology systems have multiplied their average data outputs tenfold in the last few years. Full surface data, in addition to features and points, was the main contributor. Then came the addition of  new and extensive analysis capabilities for measurement data, such as dimensional deviation colour maps and portable 3D inspection reports to name a few.

Now massive amounts of pre-production and serialised production measurement data are coming online with ever-increasing level of details about the part, assembly and final product dimensions, shape and quality indicators. This poses new IT-style challenges to manufacturers and their providers.

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence and other Hexagon businesses address big data challenges as companies accumulate larger and larger data sets. Investment in technology and enterprise-scale software systems aims to provide better management, interoperability, and analytics. This way, critical insights enabled by Big Data would indeed significantly improve operational performance.

In the Automated Solutions group, whose production-integrated metrology systems are operating on a 24/7 basis, innovations are continuously being developed. On the one hand, sensors are enhanced to acquire even more data faster than before and on the other hand to compress Big Data, reduce its complexity and make it more accessible to a larger audience of technicians, engineers and managers.

Growing Up Fast Can Be Hard to Do: Hexagon Helps!


Rush hour in Hong Kong starts about 4 a.m. Or maybe that’s when it finishes. It’s hard to tell in this, one of the most densely populated places on earth. More than 130,000 people live within a square kilometre of the Mong Kok neighborhood, where you learn to stop saying “excuse me” after a while. Sleep is a waste of time in Hong Kong. There’s too much to see!

For a company dedicated to smart change, Hexagon could not have chosen a more appropriate venue for the first Asia-Pacific edition of HxGN LIVE. Many of the challenges being addressed by Hexagon technologies are here. Urbanization is perhaps the most obvious of those challenges, and its effects were seen everywhere by attendees who stepped outside the AsiaWorld-Expo this week.

Forty years ago, few buildings in Hong Kong exceeded six stories. Today, legions of skyscrapers bounded by ocean, islands and forested hills stretch to the horizon. From the airport, set adrift from Lantau Island on a strip of man-made land, to the steep condo blocks that sprout like weeds on even steeper hillsides, Hong Kong can resemble a science fiction movie. Unchecked, such rapid growth can create obvious hurdles such as environmental degradation, traffic congestion, public safety concerns and unsustainable energy demands.

Hexagon’s Smart/Safe Cities partnership with Huawei directly addresses those challenges. So it was no surprise to see this alliance feature prominently in HxGN LIVE’s keynotes, TV broadcasts and in the technology expo, The Zone. Together, these companies are helping government and law enforcement agencies quickly respond to and resolve issues associated with urbanization.

Hexagon delivers Smart City solutions that align technologies for transport, energy, water, construction and public safety services. These solutions revolve around a core of safety cultivated via city infrastructure, human resources and mass public transportation. The result is a city able to deliver faster and more responsive emergency and public safety services. Better yet, agencies can determine threats, resolve crises more easily through collaboration and solve issues with intelligent analysis of big data.

For places like Hong Kong, there’s reassurance in knowing that growing pains can be treated. Now that’s shaping smart change.

Shaping the Past to Build a Precise Future


This is the first time I have attended a conference that brought so many bright minds together; minds from diverse backgrounds and industries. This is an awesome experience that I will treasure for a long time.

I have handled many inspections and reviewed metrology instruments and equipment for the past 15 years. I’ve always thought these tools are all the same, meeting customer inspection and measuring needs. But Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has changed my perspective and line of thinking. It’s not all about inspection, it’s not all about measuring. What it’s about is solutions. Solutions that will provide precise and accurate products for the future.

During the conference’s presentation of OPTIV, CMM, UHA machines, Leitz CMM and their software such as I++ , QUINDOS and PCDMIS, I kept thinking that these  innovations are the answer to our customers’ needs because Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has streamlined its products for the benefit of the customer.

To quote Product Manager Karin Schneider, “We can now measure not just the known product, but also the unknown product.” For me, this is the very definition of innovation.

Hexagon’s multisensors and optical systems are geared up and ready to face any customer challenges ahead. And improved CMM performance combined with the latest software surely means our competitors will have a hard time keeping up.

Asia-Pacific is the next proving ground for the latest innovations from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. Hexagon is setting the bar of excellence for others to follow.

Thank you Hexagon for hosting HxGN LIVE here in Asia-Pacific and giving us the opportunity to witness first-hand the products you used to shape the past and the products you will use to build a precise future.

Kudos to everyone at Hexagon for making this event possible.

It’s All About Data


HxGN LIVE Hong Kong is my eighth Hexagon conference in a row- if I also count the Leica HDS user conferences. Technology has changed quite a bit since the early days, but the excitement about discovering new business ideas is still strong each time I board a plane for the next conference.

And I can tell you, every time I fly back from HxGN LIVE, my head is full of new ideas about approaching new markets, incorporating Leica gear into new tasks, and of course, introducing innovations in my company. Plus, it’s always a pleasure to meet friends and colleagues at this event.
When I think back five years, everybody was focusing on newer and faster sensors. Speed of data acquisition was the key measure. More pixels, more colors, more completeness.

That really changed dramatically when mobile sensors appeared on the scene. Today, it’s easy to acquire millions of points in seconds, to take a Pegasus or other kinematic devices and scan subway stations, tunnels and cities in hours, if not minutes. The technology is now ready and proven to be a standard tool in a surveyor’s toolbox.
But what about the data? As a surveyor, I always try to stay around the top of the chain in any project, so it gets more and more important to transform our business model towards becoming a value-added provider of all types of data.
The most significant transition in our industry can be observed in the way data is being distributed. Leica TruView is a comparably small tool, but it has been our best-selling product for many years now. With great flexibility, it’s easy to handle and gives our customers an idea of what else can be done with the collected scan data.
So I was very happy to be among the first users of TruView Global, which increases our potential customer base significantly by being available on any browser without the need to install plugins.
And just try to imagine the fantastic possibilities that will arise by integrating JetStream in our daily workflow. No need to copy large datasets from hidden locations just to extract a few bits of information.

From my perspective, access to data is key and now we’re able to provide it to anybody. And that’s the point!

The All-Seeing Eye


The Eye of Providence, also known as the all-seeing eye, is a symbol representing an eye, often surrounded by rays of light and usually enclosed by a triangle. The next logical question is what does that have to do with HxGN LIVE?

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence is showing a prototype of a system, known as the Skywalker Project, which uses cameras and projectors mounted on a CMM. Skywalker is like an all-seeing eye for a CMM. Cameras perform several duties on the system itself.

During a showing at HxGN LIVE Las Vegas, Skywalker 1.0 performed very simple tasks: it tracked a part and a fixture, found where it was positioned, measured it using PC-DMIS and displayed results directly on a part using built-in projectors- not real results.

For Skywalker 2.0, which will be demonstrated in the tech zone at HxGN LIVE Hong Kong, we decided to concentrate on tracking and expanding its capabilities. We’ll be exhibiting four fixtures with four different parts. You’ll be able to place four fixtures anywhere you want (well, almost anywhere you want) and place the part on a fixture. Then the Skywalker system will be able to find all fixtures, tell you whether they are there, tell you whether there is a part on it, and then execute programs automatically using PC-DMIS. All this is done with a single click, or touch, on the custom Skywalker interface, which consists of a single button. Finally, we will show a small subset of projection, which we will work on enhancing for Skywalker 3.0 to be shown at HxGN LIVE Anaheim.

Why are we working on this technology? Mainly, because the potential for camera integration on our CMM frames IS to become the all-seeing eye. We are working on revolutionizing how humans interact with machines and making CMMs more intelligent. Presently, all they do is execute what they are told without intelligently providing feedback about operation or simplifying tasks.

The key to the future is to make fixed metrology systems an augmented extension of ourselves. In other words, we coined a term that Skywalker will be part of, Augmented Metrology. Skywalker is the first of many projects that will enable us to make interaction with CMMs feel more natural; it’s a system that will observe, suggest and improve the operation.

This is ultimately what the all-seeing eye is all about.

His initial employment started with Automation Software as a tech engineer for PC-DMIS in 1995. He moved on to Aftermarket Sales a few years after and after a short employment at another company came back to Hexagon in 2011 as a product manager, where he oversaw software and sensor product lines and worked with various product lines to consolidate the offering, improve processes and push the ideas of user experience as a differentiator. This new emphasis on user experience has led Milan to his current role. He is engaged with engineering and R&D, globally, to develop offerings that innovate in the Man Machine Interface domain and also improve the overall user experience. You might have seen illumination and messaging lights on SF machines, MMS Pulse and a new jogbox, NJB. All of these have resulted from his UX efforts.



Shaping Smart Change for Law Enforcement: Putting Records Management in the Cloud


With the rising adoption of cloud, mobile, and big data technologies, the face of enterprise IT is rapidly changing. Enterprise technology trends and strategies for law enforcement agencies are also changing. To be agile and effective, today’s law enforcement agencies need IT solutions that are easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use, and secure. Nowhere is this more apparent than with records management systems.

Records management systems are fundamental to law enforcement. They serve agency-wide needs, aiding operational management, case management/CRM, investigations management, resource management, reporting, and more. However, in a dynamically changing IT and operational environment, many law enforcement agencies are quickly realizing that in order to keep their officers productive and their records data manageable, replacing their antiquated records management systems is inevitable.

With Hexagon’s inPURSUIT WebRMS, law enforcement agencies have access to a cloud-deployable, enterprise information management system that provides quick access to data whenever and wherever it’s needed by field officers and supervisors. Scalable for single and multi-agency use, it serves all facets of law enforcement operations and administration and can be accessed by any device that connects to the Internet.

What makes WebRMS game changing for law enforcement agencies is that it combines the advantages of an enterprise information management system with the benefits of a secure, thin-client application. There’s no software to load on to local workstations or browser plug-ins to manage. This capability greatly reduces the time and costs associate with updating and upgrading software versions – ultimately lowering a police agency’s total cost of ownership. WebRMS also features embedded interfacing and analytics capabilities, helping agencies effectively manage resources, identify important trends, and connect to other mission- and business-critical systems.

One Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure customer – and recent Hexagon Shaping Change Recognition Programme honoree – already leveraging WebRMS is the U.S. Coast Guard Investigative Services (CGIC).
The agency’s previous processes around case records were inefficient and cumbersome to navigate. CGIS personnel used paper-based and redundant data entry methods to manage records, limiting the amount of data readily available and making the data mining and reporting process tedious and time consuming. Needing to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of how it managed criminal case information, CGIS implemented WebRMS, which has streamlined the collection, sharing, and reporting of criminal investigation data. What used to take its staff weeks to report on, only takes a few hours now.

During the HxGN LIVE Hong Kong conference, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn more about WebRMS as well as our other public safety solutions. It is also a great opportunity to see first-hand how all of Hexagon’s brands and technologies are shaping smart change across industries. I encourage you to take in as many sessions and demos as you can. It will be worth it. I hope to see you around the conference.

Getting a Clear Picture of Dutch Municipal Road Networks


As is true for most cities across the globe, the municipal government of Tynaarlo is responsible for providing a safe, positive and enjoyable experience for all visitors and citizens utilizing public city facilities. City leaders strive to establish effective policies and strategies that pave the way for better urban experiences. To achieve this across strategic, tactical and operational levels, much thought and action are afforded to implementing systems that efficiently harness and manage the full life cycle of public assets.

One of the strategic goals of the municipality is to guarantee safe roads. Every day people use roads to travel within, around and across the municipality of Tynaarlo in the Netherlands. Travelers such as students, tourists, commuters and shoppers are diverse and have different objectives. Each person wants to arrive safely to their destination and hopefully enjoy pleasant surroundings like tree-lined avenues, along the way.

Large sums of money are invested in continuous road network monitoring and maintenance to ultimately verify compliance with safety standards. In this process, data is collected from both road inspectors who report on technical aspects and also citizens who provide a more subjective view of their experience. The result is a set of quality data representing both measured road information and safety levels as well as personal perceptions of quality.

Tapping into Rich Data to Deliver Key Performance Indicators

Maps are useful, but key business insights drawn from location-based information are what facilitate business decisions. Similarly, historical and current road network data is helpful, but intelligent information derived through targeted analyics and presented in a highly readable way conveys more meaning. A dashboard is what Tynaarlo leadership requires to understand needs, plan, take action and communicate between different levels both inside and outside the organization. The municipality recognized the power held within their rich roads database and also the potential to distill that data and present it in a dynamic dashboard.

To accomplish taking their road data to the next level, Tynaarlo leaders are working with Antea Group in the Netherlands, an international engineering and environmental consulting firm and large player in the public asset management sector. Antea has joined hands with Imagem, the Dutch distributor for Hexagon Geospatial and early adopter of the Hexagon Smart M.App(R) platform. Together, the two parties are combining engineering creativity with state-of-the-art information and communication technology to provide insight into real-world change and help solve Smart City challenges.

Supported by the Hexagon Smart M.Apps platform and by a database comprising years of historical and current road inspection data, Tynaarlo is now working to deploy a dynamic application that offers current, comprehensive road information, in addition to updates over time. Through an interactive dashboard, the application reveals an engaging picture of the state of roads based on year and investment numbers per year. Furthermore, the rich database enables identification of trends by comparing current data to previous years. Now, the effects of invested budgets are easily compared and presented, and city leaders get a clear understanding if asset expenditures were properly allocated.

With continous access to thoughtfully presented summary metrics, city leadership at all levels can now make better decisions based on reliable information. By getting behind the new paradigm for location-based applications, Tynaarlo Municipality is defining what it means to be a Smart City.
