One year ago, we announced the formation of our European headquarters, located in the heart of the Czech Republic. The move provided a convenient launch point to expand business partnerships and more readily offer sales, setup and maintenance of Light Guide Systems throughout Europe and Africa.
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.
At OPS Solutions, we’re always looking to align with think tanks and innovation hubs that share our mission of helping manufacturers of all shapes and sizes improve their processes and compete more effectively in today’s industry 4.0-driven marketplace.
Today’s rapidly changing technology landscape demands constant innovation, and we could not be more proud of our team’s relentless focus on continuous improvement.
In 2005, we figured out a way to use augmented reality to help manufacturers drive operational processes with precision and speed and have been harnessing the power of AR technology ever since.
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.
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 company began with a spark of innovation and an inventive spirit that continues to thrive within our culture today. Our team is what drives that spirit, and in turn, our company, forward. This is a particularly exciting time for our company, as our continued growth has allowed us to expand our team even further. In a few short months, we’ve welcomed several new team members, including our first hires at our new European HQ in the Czech Republic.
Here at OPS Solutions, there’s no manufacturing challenge our team can’t solve. As a leader driving the next wave of manufacturing innovation, we’ve proven that augmented reality (AR) technology can be used to build anything—from cars, circuit boards and cookies to pacemakers, jet turbines and even yachts!
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?”
A new frontier in global manufacturing has arrived, and Industry 4.0 is at its forefront.
Enterprise augmented reality, in particular, is transforming the modern manufacturing process and profoundly benefitting the growing number of factories that invest in it, in the areas of quality, training, efficiency and more.
