3D Infotech, a leading provider of 3D Universal Metrology Automation (UMA) has announced a new partnership with Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE company. Together they will create sustainable products and services leveraging the virtual twin to connect the real and virtual worlds.
Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that overlays digital information in the real world, allowing users to interact with virtual objects in a real environment. This technology has the potential to revolutionize the way manufacturing companies assemble complex products on the shop-floor.
Guided work instructions with visual cues and automated visual verification allow users to be more efficient, productive, and confident in getting the job done ‘right first time’. By using gamification techniques, a virtual Poka-yoke can be implemented easily for ‘mistake-proofing’ monotonous labor to promote lean manufacturing.
Inadvertent errors caused by manual assembly tasks are prominent in manufacturing industry, mistake proofing helps prevent operators from using the wrong parts, leaving out a part, or installing a part backwards. The 3DS AR platform can be implemented in a variety of ways, including: Guiding large assembly work, such as in Aerospace and Industrial Equipment manufacturing, where in-process quality can ensure avoiding expensive rework before it’s too late:
➤ Executing complex steps with precise measurement & torque requirements, often with an IoT sensor
➤ Performing the process sequence in the correct order to ensure the alignment and balanced operation
➤ Rapidly and accurately performing objective visual inspection for final reporting and traceability
“With over 18 years of mission critical manufacturing quality expertise and a wide variety of turn-key configurable software and hardware solutions, we are sure that the partnership between 3D Infotech and Dassault Systèmes enhances our ability to deliver end-to-end solutions for quality control, automation, and adaptive manufacturing in a wide variety of industry verticals” commented 3D Infotech. “With our comprehensive distribution agreement in North America 3DS, the horizon looks promising.”
The partnership will combine the best of both companies’ offerings to bring customers exceptional results that allows delivery of a high-quality customer experience through cutting-edge Augmented Reality solutions.
