Immersive Technology is helping to advance the Manufacturing Industry


Immersive technologies, i.e., Augmented and Virtual reality, have a significant role in the manufacturing industry to create real-time benefits. Immersive tech isn't new to manufacturing, but with the recent surge and global attention to AR and VR, businesses are looking to employ these technologies for improving their business-critical operations.

AR, and VR the user's visibility into the process and display accurate information at the right time, are proving to be perfect for manufacturing processes in businesses.

Manufacturers undergo several changes with their products with the altering demands of their customers. On this account, the manufacturing process must be open to changes and be highly flexible. When such a condition occurs, the business requires the skill of human hands and the decision-making of human brains; then, the process is automated using general-purpose robots.

Since humans can't process massive amounts of information quickly like the general-purpose robots with their superhuman information capabilities, we can't make decisions based on the little information available. We won't sense or see the hidden patterns that an artificial intelligence-based system can do. So we require assistance while performing the different stages of the manufacturing process, from design and visualization to training and final inspection.

Application of Immersive tech in Manufacturing processes

The adoption of immersive tech in manufacturing from the budding phase to the completion is proving to be a game-changer. AR and VR improve efficiency, worker productivity, and design in all different levels of the manufacturing processes. Learn more about the application of immersive tech in manufacturing below -

  • Design and Visualization : To get the right design of the goods, designers use CAD models to test and try products. Using physical prototypes, designers test the product design in real-time. However, the prototypes are difficult to make; at the same time, it's difficult and expensive to redesign the physical prototypes for trial and testing. It also increases the time to market (TTM) since physical prototyping requires multiple redoing of the model, and every iteration takes time for their physical recreation.
    Using virtual reality, designers can design products in 3D space and test until it's finalized. It reduces the time to market and allows manufacturers to test products under standard conditions and extract design flaws that aren't provided via conventional testing methods. With the help of VR, your products are proven to be perfect by design and less likely to experience product failure.

  • Efficient Decision-Making : To be agile enough to meet the market and customers' changing demands, manufacturing operations must make quicker decisions while undergoing a thorough and detailed analysis of all the information.
    The amount of data that needs analysis to make a safe and effective decision is quite large. Therefore, delaying the decision-making process further delays the necessary action and ultimately causes downtime.
    With data visualization, decision-making is becoming more and more enhanced, offers solutions to all questions, and diagnoses new problems that can increase higher performance and growth. Incorporating visual and augmented reality in manufacturing-related data visualization accelerates the process of decision-making at all levels.

  • Improved Maintenance & Error Detection: In the manufacturing plant, the equipment, machinery, and components can experience an unexpected breakdown that requires an immediate response. Sometimes, the maintenance teams might not restore the equipment to full-functionality, resulting in a significant loss. Using AR and VR can help make maintenance easier and save the business from a high cost. Using AR equipment to guide the maintenance repair personnel helps to fix problems without a long delay. The AR application can accurately overlay real-time video images to guide you through the process of repairing.

With more manufacturing companies using Augmented and Virtual reality technologies to increase efficiency and productivity, its benefit in different manufacturing processes is incredibly massive. Aximind uses immersive technology services for businesses to reduce training costs, increase knowledge retention and get their products to the market quicker than ever.
