The Importance of Traceability in Optimizing Production

Light Guide Systems data traceability in optimizing production

Data collection and analysis are imperative to agile manufacturing. Looking forward, especially as production innovates, staying competitive relies on comprehending every aspect of a given process. Collecting the right data enables full traceability and understanding of your process. 

Traceability is the capability to find and verify the complete history of production parts.

LightGuideAR™ 4.2 Connects Data Remotely with Web APIs


Version 4.2 of the LightGuideAR™ software introduced new capabilities with Application Programmable Interfaces (APIs) for the scalability of Light Guide data.

APIs make it easier for programs to communicate with each other, locally or globally. Think of it as a kind of translator between you and your server. Having a conversation with the server is like having a conversation over the phone, where you will get more detail. A web API is like sending a text, which gives you a more specific, straightforward set of information.

LightGuideAR for PPE and Health Screening Confirmation

Health Screening

As manufacturing and service companies restart their operations following long shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, there are several critical elements where Augmented Reality (AR) can enable and assist a safe and efficient restart process.  One critical element of a safe restart is to ensure that new requirements for PPE and health screening are properly adhered to prior to an employee entering the workplace. Light Guide can allow employees entering the workplace to check-in safely and without contact, with a standardized process including auto-confirmation that all required PPE is adorned, as well as health screening for fever and other symptoms.  A successful screening event can then be logged to the employee’s badge number for safe entry into the workplace.  The new video on our video page demonstrates how this Light Guide enabled safe-entry screening process can work. Check out the new video with this link.  We are doing our part to #StopTheSpread, and help to keep our customers safe as they restart and return to work with Light Guide.
