Hexagon AB has launched Nexus. Nexus is an open, flexible, future-ready digital reality platform built for the discrete manufacturing ecosystem—from aerospace, automotive, and electronics to consumer products and general manufacturing. Stakeholders across engineering, manufacturing and quality disciplines can connect, collaborate and exchange data in real time to accelerate approaches to making higher quality products more efficiently and sustainably, the company says.

Nexus is a one-stop shop connecting people, software and machines across all manufacturing disciplines in real time to enable data and information sharing in a secure environment, Hexagon explains. The resulting feedback loops free multidisciplinary teams to evaluate the impact of their choices earlier.

“Manufacturing is changing fast,” says  Hexagon president and CEO Paolo Guglielmini. “Nexus is our contribution to help shape this transformation with speed and confidence, breaking the silos currently holding innovation back. Whether striving to achieve less waste, less rework, higher quality outcomes or optimize net zero strategies, Nexus will aid manufacturers in capturing and leveraging the operational and sustainability data points to translate their ambitions into initiatives that drive meaningful change.”

Co-engineered with Microsoft using the latest cloud technologies, Nexus gives customers choice and control, connecting to the cloud and any on-premise systems they use while protecting intellectual property at every step. The open platform enables users to explore and discover new tools, training, and support across a portfolio of software and hardware from Hexagon and many other suppliers. 

Personalized interactions enable users to dictate workflows and technology choices, connecting only what they need from Hexagon's manufacturing portfolio with partner and third-party tools and technologies. These include the manufacturing execution system of Oqton and the Altium 365 platform from electronic design automation software company, Altium.

All products “powered by Nexus” enable improved data exchange and access to its core capabilities, such as AI, visualization, and workflow orchestration. The apps and solutions built on Nexus, whether by Hexagon or third-party developers, enable users to build increasingly autonomous and sustainable workflows. Learn more here.
