We are accelerating the world’s digital reality transformation by unlocking the power of data across many applications.  

Here’s our HxGN Spotlight recent highlights from around the globe:  

1. Digitalisation is transforming the way contractors move and grade dirt.

Delivering solutions to the heavy construction industry, Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, and LiuGong Dressta Machinery, a worldwide supplier of durable and powerful heavy construction equipment released a new Leica Ready factory kit for the TD-15M and TD-16N dozers. The new machine control technology will help to reduce the need for manual stakeouts, optimise fuel usage and minimise the amount of materials and transportation required.

2. Electronics manufacturers will soon have access to new sustainability solutions.

Recognising the significant impact that the electronics industry has on the environment, Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division and Altium have entered a strategic partnership that aims to make positive change by introducing new tools and solutions which support the industry in becoming more sustainable.

3. Improving Canada’s busiest airport.

Travelers passing through the Toronto Pearson International Airport likely overlook the multiple agencies working together to ensure passenger safety and smooth operations across the sprawling flight hub. As Canada’s largest airport, all operational and emergency communications pass through the Integrated Operations Control Centre (IOCC), which dispatches multiple agencies and organisations for various calls. A lack of visibility into incidents and resources among teams can create confusion and delay response times.

Serving the customers of RoofSnap, Hexagon’s HxGN Content Program supports contractors working anywhere in the United States – thanks to countrywide aerial imagery. RoofSnap is a leading roofing software application contractors use to create fast, accurate roof measurements and job estimates for customers.
