Immersive Options for Manufacturing
Manufacturing is a process where every second matters. Modern, automated factory floors never stop running, and even the tiniest error in design or layout can contribute to untold losses. That’s one reason virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality has found such a foothold in the industry. The ability to simulate everything from a plant floor to a final product is invaluable, and the ability to do it instantly and effectively for a comparatively nominal cost makes VR a transformative technology for factories.
The ChallengeThe manufacturing of equipment, such as a turbine, is a multistage process which required a skilled workforce. Attention to detail, precision and efficient production processes are some of the key components of the manufacturing process. There is always a challenge for people on manufacturing floors to visualize the entirety of the process of heavy equipment being manufactured.
The SolutionVeative has developed a simulation of a turbine. This immersive experience helps the user to not only
take an immersive walkthrough to view various parts and components of the machinery, but can also
help the user to explore various design aspects in detail by using interactive functions such as
disassembly and reassembly the entire turbine, part by part. Veative has used its cross-platform
migration accelerator plugins to provide this solution on multiple platforms including:
- A stereoscopic 3D simulation for PCs
- VR App for HTC Vive and Acer MR devices
- A great tool to understand how a turbine works and for checking various design aspects which assist in the efficient calibration of a variety of parts and components
- Makes the design process more efficient
