Enhance your machine building with augmented reality
Enhance your machine building with augmented reality
Whether it is the display of classic step-by-step instructions, remote maintenance, the observation of 3D prototypes or architects' designs in construction, augmented reality technology is used in all areas of industry 4.0. And implementing it in existing workflows is much easier than many people think. The advantages for companies are more efficient processes, lower error rates, shorter machine downtimes and reduced personnel requirements. All of these things make for lower costs overall.
How machinebuilding AR is used
Here are some examples below of the incredible capabilities of augmented reality in machine building,
Augmented reality improved assembly line work with live instructions
Working on an automated assembly line requires expert knowledge to operate the machines during maintenance and construction. an AR solution supported AKYAPAK in maintaining the level of knowledge required to work with these machines for their operators. The solution provided all instructions needed to work on the assmebly line safely.
Installing large equipment right the first time with AR
The installation of large electrical or mechanical equipment can be an expensive endeavour when done incorrectly. To make sure this equipment is installed correclty, AR is used to show the correct location and orientation in the real world before it is even installed. This solution reduces the amount of work needed for post-installation activities and prevents major disruptions during installation
How AR can be used for machine building
So now that you know that it works, time to show where you could benefit from augmented reality in your organization:
Improve customer relationships with augmented reality
AR headsets and assisted reality smart glasses possess the ability to transport the customer into the repair and maintenance process remotely. Effectively, this increases customer engagement and promotes a deeper understanding of technical issues from all sides, limiting time spent on post-repair documentation.
Including the customer in remote maintenance and repair improves the quality and productivity as multiple insights are provided to the repair and maintenance operation. All in all augmented reality improves customer relationships and their lifetime value.
Because augmented and assisted reality enables fully decentralized tasks to be completed, AR headsets and smart glasses support industrial processes and machine building to rapidly scale internationally.
That means if you are a small team and require assistance from machine experts around the globe, AR and assisted reality facilitate you to respond quickly to repairs, setup, and ongoing maintenance and quality control.
The benefits of immersive visualization in augmented reality
AR helps you transition from CADs to BIMs. Building Information Modeling in augmented reality transforms how architects design with real-time rendering, how the urban planner can develop the most optimized parking lot, and even how patient treatment information is displayed during surgeries.
Immersive Visualization provides designers and engineers with a closer representation of the final product to illustrate for their clients. While it improves the final delivery, collaboration and workflow to get there. Namely, neurosurgeons can rely on non-intrusive patient information during operations, providing more accurate and safer neuronavigation.
