Is Augmented Reality (AR) the future of industrial maintenance? In March at the CeBIT in Hanover we presented possibilities for using AR in service and maintenance processes. The visitors could experience an industry-related scenario, supported by the Microsoft HoloLens glasses and VIOS AR.
Our demo was about the process of examining an aviation component for material deficiencies.
The component could be examined by using an Ultrasonic Measurement Device. The procedure is called Non-destructive testing (NDT) – evaluating the properties of a material or component without causing damage. Usually a technician has to look at the monitor of the device, which the Measurement Device is connected to, in order to see results. With the HoloLens there is no need to do this, which allows for more efficient work. Within the demo the technician can see suspected damage areas as well as the scan results. This way he is guided through the inspection process. Continue reading “VIOS AR: The future of industrial maintenance?”
Industry 4.0 intelligently connects people, machines and industrial processes by using modern communication and information technology. It affects many different areas like production, logistics or maintenance. Industry 4.0 is also a main topic of the digital agenda of the government of Germany. Under leadership of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) the Plattform Industrie 4.0 shapes the structural change together with businesses, unions and sciences. The Platform also supports businesses with an online map, which shows where Industry 4.0 is already implemented today, by means of about 250 examples.
For Bitnamic, Industry 4.0 is a very important topic. VIOS is a modern communication technology and connects people and machines in various service and maintenance processes. This is why we are very happy about VIOS being accepted as a practical example in the Industry 4.0 map.
The acceptance emphasises the meaning of VIOS as an Industry 4.0 solution in practical use, and shows why it is worth to invest in digitisation. With VIOS Bitnamic is supporting companies in optimising and modernising maintenance and service so they can avoid downtimes and reduce travel costs.
