Manufacturers all over the world have been busy finding new ways to improve their own efficiency. They have introduced lot many devices and software that connect into an IIoT network. OPS Solutions recently developed a completely new way for improving the human element in the industry with the help of Light Guide Systems. It is an augmented reality tool that can help workers in manual assembling of things along with several other applications.
In order to support this new innovation, the firm has also opened up a brand new 10.000 sq. ft. facility in Wixom, Michigan that will help in the development of advanced features and finding new ways for bringing the technology over floors. With the help pf cameras and projectors in workplaces, the Light Guide Systems will also assist others in assembling of parts as well as training letting a worker know the right way for doing things and places where they need to be kept. The team paired its AR software with HP’s Sprout desktop computer; one can easily improve a higher number of assembly positions than ever. And the best part, you can skip wearing those funny pair of nerdy glasses.
The present technology by the firm is being used by several automakers and several other large-scale manufacturers working in the United States. This new facility of this company and the new technology will help them record an expansion beyond large-scale industry. The founder, CEO, and President of this company, Paul Ryznar, says, “Demand for our augmented reality technology has grown dramatically in the last several years and we are excited to expand operations in Southeast Michigan’s technology corridor. While our global presence is increasing steadily, it is critical to be part of the strong manufacturing landscape in Detroit and we look forward to growing our partnerships with powerful manufacturers to make factory floors smarter, safer and better with technology.”
These systems will play a dual role, not only will they help in improvement of efficiency of human workers; it will also provide a new channel for improvement of automated workstations.
