Hexagon and ETQ Connect Quality Solutions to Help Manufacturers Bring Superior Products to Market Faster and Protect Brand Reputation

Hexagon | October 11, 2021

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, a global leader in sensor, software, and autonomous technologies, and ETQ, a leading quality management system (QMS) provider, have announced a partnership to assure quality from concept to customer, enabling improved data-driven decision making throughout the entire process, producing better, more consistent products in less time and with less resource and enabling progressive smart manufacturing strategies. The partnership connects Hexagon’s vendor-agnostic inspection and measurement solutions with ETQ’s stakeholder-connecting QMS to produce a rich digital thread that automatically captures quality control and assurance processes that are currently performed manually. By applying machine learning and artificial intelligence throughout design, production, customer service and support the cloud platform also helps users to rapidly identify and analyze issues by producing actionable insights. Manufacturers in a range of industries automotive, life sciences, heavy manufacturing and beyond – will derive immediate value from the integrated data thanks to higher product quality and fewer defects, scrap, rework or recalls. As the Smart Manufacturing environment evolves, this level of data-driven automation and integration will deliver the ability to maximize the quality and efficiency of the complete manufacturing lifecycle and create the foundation for autonomous manufacturing and true digital transformation. Rob Gremley, CEO of ETQ Paolo Guglielmini, President of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, said: “Consumers perceive quality based on their experience. It is the manufacturer’s brand reputation, it can add significant value to a product, and it combines every aspect of the product lifecycle. Our customers trust our solutions to connect the shop floor to the top floor with pervasive quality assurance, and this new addition to our ecosystem will further support their journey towards Industry 4.0.” An example of how the partnership will benefit customers today is in resolving a nonconformance incident, leveraging inspection and measurement data collected and managed by Hexagon’s Q-DAS and eMMA software solutions with full traceability and best in class Statistical Quality Control (SQC) and Analytics, and integrated with ETQ Reliance’s QMS. Hexagon’s existing quality control solutions can identify a nonconformance from, for example, the Production Part Approval Process, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, or customer feedback, at which point the digital connection between that manufacturing solution and the ETQ QMS will autonomously generate a nonconformance report (NCR) without human intervention. Typically, the action to halt or modify production of the faulty product is handled manually or with limited technological help, but with a combined Hexagon-ETQ generated NCR solution, a corrective action can be automatically triggered in production and the information simultaneously updated in the company’s enterprise resource planning system to put the affected product batch on hold. This prevents the release and potential negative consequences of defects, efficiently digitizing the quality management process and providing an unprecedented degree of integration across the manufacturing lifecycle and support smart manufacturing strategies and aspirations. About Hexagon Hexagon is a global leader in sensor, software and autonomous solutions. We are putting data to work to boost efficiency, productivity, and quality across industrial, manufacturing, infrastructure, safety, and mobility applications.

The Tesla Supercharger in Santa Monica will accept Dogecoin

Tesla | February 23, 2022

On February 19, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter that the company's supercharging station would take cryptocurrency Dogecoin as payment. "Of course, you can pay in Ðoge (sic), "said Musk in response to a tweet from Tesla Console creator Ryan Zohoury, who stated that the new Santa Monica Superchargers were nearly full minutes after opening. Following this, Dogecoin's price increased, trading at 11.1635, up 3.22 percent. This comes just days after Musk stated that Tesla Inc. products, like the "Cyberwhistle" and "Cyberquad for Kids," will be available using Dogecoin. Musk announced in December that Tesla would try to accept Dogecoin as payment for items. Tesla's CEO, a prominent proponent of Dogecoin on social media, has previously hinted at the move. In addition, multiple reports said that Tesla's website source code had a Dogecoin payment option in the last few days. In a recent interview, he also promoted Dogecoin over any other cryptocurrency. "The transaction value of Bitcoin is low, and the cost per transaction is high. At least at a space level, it is suitable as a store of value. But fundamentally, Bitcoin is not a good substitute for transactional currency, " -Elon MuskTesla CEO adding that even though Dogecoin was created as a silly joke, it is better suited for transactions. Musk was a big supporter of digital currencies at work, and he played a significant role in making Dogecoin popular. Meanwhile, Musk stated last year that Bitcoin mining has been shifting "toward renewable energy sources." "his business would almost certainly reintroduce cryptocurrency as a method of payment for its electric vehicles. Musk said that hydropower, geothermal, and nuclear energy are all excellent energy sources for Bitcoin mining. If mining uses 50% or more renewable energy, Tesla will accept Bitcoin again. Tesla stopped buying Bitcoin in May 2021 because it was worried about the fossil fuel used in mining. This led to a drop in the value of digital currency. In a tweet Thursday, he expressed concern over the "huge use" of coal and other carbon-intensive energy sources to generate the electricity required for cryptocurrency mining. In February of last year, Tesla said that it had bought $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin and planned to accept it as payment. This caused both the company's stock and the Bitcoin value to rise.
