At Agrishow, Hexagon showcased its solutions for agricultural machine manufacturers

The company also established new partnerships with distributors of agricultural technologies during the fair

Florianópolis, Brazil (May 13, 2019) - Hexagon's Agriculture division took advantage of the 25th edition of the Agrishow, held last week in Ribeirão Preto (SP). The company's solutions that transform agricultural machines into digital agents in the field were highlighted at the Hexagon stand.

"Customers came to the fair willing to negotiate. We saw a booming market for our products, reflecting in increased sales and partnerships with important brands," said Bernardo de Castro, president of Hexagon’s Agriculture division.

Equipped with on-board technology, Hexagon’s agricultural and forestry machines are able to make routines in the field more precise and efficient, getting the maximum potential out of productive areas. For Castro, this is the difference that many machine manufacturers seek. One of Hexagon's solutions that has been attracting the attention of the OEM market is Remote Machine Support, which enables remote technical services. In addition to reducing technician travel costs, it decreases downtime, improving operation efficiency indicators.

One of Hexagon's partners who attended the company's booth at the Agrishow is Pulverjet, a manufacturer of self-propelled crop sprayers. Brand director Marcelo Variza stated that the company will soon launch a new product line in the global market with Hexagon's on-board technology with the potential to significantly reduce fuel consumption, among other benefits.

"When we reformulated Pulverjet, we chose the brand for its leadership in the segment. Today, our machines are running on Hexagon and we are very pleased with the control and improvement of our processes,” Variza said.

Agrishow 2019 - at the fair, Hexagon showed how synchronisation of all processes can reduce costs and increase productivity in the field. The company has developed a platform of solutions that optimise end-to-end agricultural activities from cultivation planning to harvesting transportation.
