Three Companies Unite Under One Brand
Vero Software, FASys and Spring Technologies unite under Hexagon brand to strengthen product offerings.
Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence has formed its Production Software business, comprising of Vero Software, FASys and Spring Technologies. The move, which sees the three acquisitions adopting Hexagon’s corporate identity, reflects Hexagon’s broadening expertise in the production technology space, according to the company.
Hexagon acquired Vero Software in 2014 and has continued to expand and diversify its offering. The 2017 acquisition of FASys brought tooling and resource management software and shopfloor automation and integration expertise into the portfolio. Spring Technologies, acquired in 2018, provides CNC simulation technology for G-code verification and workflow optimization. Combining components of this portfolio of technology, Hexagon has already used this expertise to develop solutions for reverse engineering and on-machine measurement.
Norbert Hanke, President of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, adds: “The formation of the Production Software business complements our design and engineering and metrology businesses, enabling us to build unique solutions for our customers in manufacturing. As we develop this approach further, our experience of leveraging data from all phases of the manufacturing process will help create the Autonomous Connected Ecosystems (ACE) that will enable Smart Factories.”
