Despite the diversity of industry, our CAD CAM applications all address the rising challenges of achieving manufacturing efficiencies and bring huge value to the operations where they are deployed.
Hexagon Production Software has been on a growth spree in the Indian market, despite the country’s manufacturing grappling with sharp economic downturn. In an interview, Sandeep Srivastava, Director- India & South East Asia and Amol Arun Mane, General Manager – Technical & Marketing (India & South East Asia) tell us about the company’s strategy, USP and its vision for 2020.
Year 2019 had been a challenging year for most of the manufacturing sector in India especially the automotive sector. However, we could register a double digit growth for the Indian market when compared to year 2018.
We have increased our market share though there was slowdown in the Indian manufacturing sector.
We have been always focused on providing end to end solutions to the manufacturing industry in order to address their critical business issues. However, when it comes to a specific products, VISI and WORKNC products focusing on die and mould design and manufacturing respectively; and EDGECAM, which is our CAM product offering for production machining, have shown a significant sales growth in year 2019.
Focusing on customers’ critical business issues (CBIs) and providing them with end to end solutions mapping their CBIs using our various products, has been our key strength. We have robust technical processes and systems, along with well experienced and knowledgeable team members. We work with our customers as solution partners helping them to improve their productivity.
Hexagon had acquired Spring Technologies towards the end of year 2018. We had launched NCSIMUL products in India in May 2019 during our India Customer Meet 2019 event at Pune. Using NCSIMUL products, we can create a digital twin of a machine tool, verify and optimize the tool path generated by CAM software. We are actively working with various prospects from the aerospace and automotive sectors in India for NCSIMUL products.
As mentioned earlier, we will be more focused on end to end solutions using our various products. Now, Hexagon Production Software along with Smart Factory and Q-DAS divisions will work together to provide end to end solutions to our customers mapping their CBIs.
