As Augmented Reality continues to evolve our understanding of what it can achieve becomes clearer and clearer. The technology promises to transform manufacturing processes to help manufacturing companies save money while producing and maintaining superior products.
At OneBonsai we are at the cutting-edge of this evolved understanding. We work with customers to help resolve challenges and achieve efficiencies through the innovative application of Augmented Reality.
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.
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.
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.
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.
