HxGN Machine Trainer

Multi-axis CNC and CMM machine trainer simulator


The Hexagon Machine Trainer is a new operator programmer training method, entirely imagined and developed by Hexagon. Thought like a flying simulator and certification tool, dedicated to CNC machining and CMM machines. The program is based on the new generation of NCSIMUL intelligent simulation software, which is a perfect combination of software and hardware, efficient, practical, and easy to learn.

The industrial context

  • A real political will to reindustrialize our country
  • Important need to train operators on machine tools and controllers
    • Retirement of qualified operators
    • Lack of operational manpower
  • Risk of entrusting expensive means of production to insufficiently trained operators
  • Risk of blocking productions and increasing their costs due to human error
  • Attractiveness problem in the industry
    • Need to attract young people to machining with new technologies


  • A single ready-to-use device to simulate multiple Machines
  • 3-axis to 5-axis machining center
  • Mill-Turn machining center
  • 2 digital controllers
  • Three-dimensional metrology unit
  • Industry of the Future ready (DNC and Monitoring included)
  • Autonomous learning
  • No risk of breakage
  • Moderate investment
    • The complete simulator is sold at a price lower than a numerical control and 4 to 5 times lower than a real machine
    • No operating budget
    • Innovative and attractive educational tool (sound and recording of sessions)
    • Industrial means of learning for new machine operators and Collaborative Tool between Methods/programming department and workshop companion
