AR & MR for Manufacturing & Engineering

In the manufacturing and engineering industry, almost every step across the value chain allows supporting AR approaches. Check the correct production process using CAD or CAE visualizations, or receive work instructions by process guidance or remote maintenance applications.

In the manufacturing and engineering industry, almost every step across the value chain allows helpful AR approaches to increase a workflow’s efficiency and minimize potential errors. Check the correct production process using CAD or CAE visualizations, or receive work instructions by process guidance or remote maintenance applications.

Whether it’s automation, steel, aerospace & defense, pharamceuticals, chemicals, electronics or others - all of these industries have certain workflows that can and do benefit from AR solutions.

The three-dimensional visualizations of CAD or CAE files allow a comprehensive insight and overview into the design and composition of different elements.

CAD viewing tools like Holo-Light's software application "Holo-View" are of particular interest to engineers, who want to turn the CAD files of any program (like Catia, AutoCAD, Inventor, Creo, SolidWorks and many more) into three-dimensional holograms for interaction. While such programs not only provide a broader overview, they also improve communication with coworkers during meetings because the corresponding holographic object can be viewed and manipulated together. And as this type of visualization also allows people from other locations to connect and view them, these AR solutions also strengthen collaboration with partners, colleagues, suppliers, or other departments.

Holo-View has not only proven to crucially improve meeting situations, but it also reduces costs for prototyping by 30% and accelerates work processes in product development by more than 10%.

Process Guidance Applications on the other hand accelerate and optimize workflows from the training process of new employees, over maintenance and repairs up to quality controls on products and machines.

While the training of new employees or the training of new work processes can take a lot of time, effort and costs, the downtimes on machines and high time expenditures spent by the staff can be reduced by up to 40% when learning via a holographic representation of the workplace. Since such an app also includes a visual, auditory and interactive component, the employees trained by this method can achieve a much better learning outcome too.

One of the most popular application examples for AR is maintenance and service. Holographic information helps the worker with real-time or historical data to perform repairs or maintenance when they are needed. If the on-site worker does not know what to do, he can further connect to an expert via interactive video calling and get the instructions directly from the pro, who can practically look over his shoulder through these applications.
