No Such Thing As Too Efficient with Steve Starner of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence

 

The average aircraft can be constructed from over 100,000 individual parts and they all need to be manufactured to very specific tolerances. This requires not only incredible data-driven systems to make and distribute these parts, but there’s a requisite need to maximize efficiency of the processes. Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence has built a reputation for precision in all of its solutions. On today’s podcast, our host spoke with the Director of Business Development for the Aerospace division of Hexagon, Steve Starner. They discussed how efficiency has become critical in the industry as margins tighten, a simpler way for companies to implement robotics on their lines, how new materials are changing the manufacturing process, and how the ever-shrinking supply of highly-skilled technicians in the industry is driving the development of automation.

“It is about cost, but I think, maybe, in a bigger way it’s about schedules. So, when you think about an aircraft, there are hundreds of thousands of pieces that come together to make a few big components that come together to make an aircraft and all these things have to meet up at the right time, at the right place,” Starner said. “A lot of it is about meeting a schedule.”
