Cloud-based software from the Manufacturing Intelligence division of Hexagon (North Kingstown, RI) helps manufacturers achieve operational excellence by providing easy access to real-time coordinate measuring machine (CMM) machine status and utilization reporting. Manufacturers can shift from managing assets as a cost center to optimizing equipment profitability and value creation.
HxGN SFx | Asset Management unlocks the data typically siloed in individual CMMs to reveal the performance of multiple machines across one or several locations via a dashboard accessible on a PC, smartphone, or tablet.

Lite and PRO versions are available online; and are compatible with PULSE, PC-DMIS, and any Hexagon CMM that uses DC, RC, or H3C controllers.
