How Is AR Transforming Manufacturing?

The global Augmented Reality market is set to be worth an estimated 62 billion USD by 2023. A lot of this growth will be driven by entertainment and there is a lot of buzz around how the technology will push media experiences to the next level. The growth of Augmented Reality, however, will be driven massively by its applications in manufacturing. AR gives companies around the world the opportunity to work more efficiently and to a higher standard.

Typical use cases

Safety training

Many of the machines used in manufacturing pose risks to their operators and/or the objects that they produce. It is important that operators are able to effectively use the machine to avoid risk and achieve the best possible results.

Augmented Reality can be used to overlay complex information over a real-world machine to offer training and supplementary information to operators. This can improve an employee’s understanding of the machine they are operating and given them the opportunity to train in live environments without the risk.

Quality Assurance

Inspection times can be significantly reduced by the use of Augmented Reality. Some automotive manufacturers have already begun to enhance the QA process by using AR overlays.

This means that employees are able to inspect a part and assess its quality by having an example component painted onto it using AR. This guarantees uniformity of products and the process will continue to be refined as time goes on.

Enhanced Off-Site Support

The machines used in manufacturing are generally very complicated and require titanic investments from their owners. Every second of downtime represents important losses so it’s of vital importance that the machines are maintained well and back up running quickly in the event of an issue.

Sometimes the individual with the necessary knowledge is off-site and transporting them to the facility can represent losses in time and money. AR can, however, allow those experts to assist remotely and offer detailed advice and diagnosis. Going beyond mere video conferencing the expert is able to highlight key areas and explain procedures using AR.

Maintenance

The maintenance of manufacturing equipment is a manual process that can be time-consuming and require the inspector to constantly re-review certain sections. AR can be used to speed up this process and improve its effectiveness.

Take, for example, an inspection that is guided by AR: the program will know how frequently to check certain areas and graphical overlays can walk employees through the process while helping them to confirm everything is in perfect order.
