PRODUCT DESIGN ENTERS A NEW REALITY: Immersive virtuality helps companies design better products faster and more economically

Seeing a virtual product in 3D on a computer screen is good, but the small screen makes it easy to miss the fine details of complex products – details that could be expensive to fix later. The arrival of low-cost head-mounted displays is eliminating that challenge, allowing designers and engineers to experience their creations at …

ERROR-FREE MANUFACTURING: Immersive technologies reduce errors and detect them faster

Manufacturing has two critical phases – planning how to manufacture a product, and then executing that plan. Leading manufacturers are applying immersive virtuality (iV) technologies at both points. “Beyond product design, the second area where automotive and aerospace companies have used their CAVEs is in designing the processes for the factory and the workshop,” said …

Collaborative robots are making automation possible for SMEs (Part 2)

This is the second of a 2-part series addressing the impact of adopting collaborative robots in the SME manufacturing environment.  Previously, we saw that collaborative robots (cobots) were innovative robots that could collaborate with workers in a shared workspace, instead of being confined behind fences. We also discovered that they were a good fit for …
