Making manufacturing smarter

Watch Ericsson and Hexagon's webinar on how 5G will support Industry 4.0 deployments.

Ericsson and Hexagon partner to enable smart wireless manufacturing

Ericsson and Hexagon share a joint vision of empowering smart, connected and autonomous industries. Both together are committed to optimize processes from design through to production, overcoming the challenges of connectivity within the factory environment as well as throughout the global supply chain. Our common vision will make manufacturing smarter, serving the needs of industries by enabling easy and fast capture, transfer and utilization of data.

Connected sensors for manufacturing

Hexagon provides a portfolio of digital manufacturing technologies for the design, engineering, production and metrology phases of the manufacturing process. By connecting data from these traditionally discreet areas of the product lifecycle in real-time, manufacturers will be able to make data-driven decisions that improve quality and productivity.

With Ericsson's leadership in cellular technologies and dedicated connectivity solutions deployed throughout the factory, data from sensors such as Hexagon's Absolute Arm can be captured and communicated throughout the business to create a smarter manufacturing ecosystem.
