In today’s rapidly evolving Industry 4.0 economy, we’ve earned our reputation as one of the most innovative and progressive manufacturing technology companies. By harnessing the power of augmented reality (AR) technology, we’ve helped companies around the globe make their manufacturing facilities smarter, safer and more efficient.
As one of the fastest growing enterprise AR companies, we have taken root not just in the United States, but in other regions of the world where manufacturing is strong.
After a successful MEDC-sponsored trade mission to China in July 2017, we knew our company had to take advantage of the opportunity again this year. With several different regions to choose from globally, we ultimately landed on India–one of the world’s fastest growing economies, and a country from which we receive a high level of interest in Light Guide Systems.
We are living in a society with more moving parts and pieces than ever before. Not only is there more variation in those individual products; there is more customization. From car doors to knee replacement hardware, nearly every product can be customized.
Today’s rapidly changing technological landscape is having a profound impact on traditional manufacturing processes.
As a company that’s leading the augmented reality (AR) revolution in manufacturing, we’re making factory floors smarter, safer and more efficient
By utilizing AR technology in powerful new ways, we’ve been able to improve the way work instructions are delivered (and received). This breakthrough has allowed us to crack the code for creating standardized, replicable and error-free manufacturing operations.
Here at OPS Solutions, we use augmented reality to help companies better visualize complex assembly processes so they can improve the way products are manufactured.
While we work hard to deliver transformational solutions for customers in a variety of industries, our team also has fun coming up with creative and amusing ways to demonstrate the versatility of our practical AR tool, Light Guide Systems—like the time we built a game of human pong for our open house event, or a bartending demo for a restaurant trade show.
Our team is continually identifying new ways our practical AR technology can be used to solve common manufacturing challenges, including the ability to improve part kitting processes for increased accuracy, efficiency and quality.
While every step within a manufacturing sequence is critically important, ensuring operators have the right parts—at the right time—is foundational to ensuring every other step in the process can be completed seamlessly.
In the manufacturing industry, timing is everything.
New integrated tools and advanced technologies are constantly being introduced on factory floors to improve efficiency, quality and flexibility at a faster pace than ever. Manufacturers must apply Industry 4.0 technologies rapidly in order to maintain true competitiveness to others in the marketplace.
As a result of rising demand for advanced tools and technologies, the Industry 4.0 sector is in a continuous state of rapid evolution, with augmented reality leading the charge. But despite proven success and rising rates of adoption, many manufacturing organizations are still wondering:
“What is the best enterprise AR tool?”
I founded OPS Solutions with the intention of improving manufacturing around the globe. Over the past several years, our company has experienced tremendous growth, thanks in part to rising demand for, and widespread adoption of, enterprise AR tools and technologies worldwide. During this time, our innovative spirit and global vision has led to a series of exciting breakthroughs, including several patents and new opportunities spanning a variety of industries.
In the not so distant past, many factories transformed from bustling displays of human ingenuity to almost fully automated production lines of steel and wire manned by robots. However, there has been a recent trend in manufacturing that is returning manufacturing jobs to human hands.
In the manufacturing sector, authoring work instructions is no simple task.
Consider, for example, the task of making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Simple, right? Not necessarily. In a manufacturing context, if you were creating a guide in the form of traditional work instructions, it might be three pages long!
