With many trade fairs postponed or cancelled following the Covid-19 pandemic, Telford-based Hexagon will be highlighting its production software solutions on a virtual stand at the forthcoming Backing Britain 2020 exhibition taking place from 17 to 28 August.

Run by the ‘Made in Group’ the on-line exhibition aims to replicate a traditional trade show using technology to enhance and improve the value for both exhibitors and visitors.

The show will consist of around 150 exhibitors, each with their own on-line stand featuring an introductory video, show boards, and brochures to download. Visitors will have four zones to explore: the lobby, two exhibition halls, seminar areas and a networking zone.

Jim Swales, Hexagon key account manager, is running the virtual stand, and features in an introductory video. He will be explaining to visitors how Hexagon’s production software solutions form an integral part of the backbone of manufacturing processes.

He says: “Hexagon’s wide range of software packages are valued by companies both large and small, and in all aspects of manufacturing.”

Visitors to the virtual stand will see how solutions such as Edgecam, Visi, Radan, WorkNC, NCSIMUL and FASYS are used in manufacturing across production machining, mould and die, and sheet metal industries, to design products, optimise production processes, then create and verify toolpaths.

Jim Swales explains that this means manufacturers can produce “top quality components and finished parts efficiently and in extremely quick turn-around times, therefore remaining cost-effective.”
