Streamline work, increase equipment uptime, reduce rework and remotely upskill workers.
The need for skilled labor in heavy industry has never been more acute. Experienced technicians are reaching retirement age, and in many industries there is a shortage of younger employees while new recruitment can’t keep pace and significant technical knowledge gaps result. Remote Mentor provides an advanced technology solution to these challenging labor problems.
Most of the world’s technical documentation exists today in PDF and represents an enormous investment in information. When accessed by technicians in the field or in manufacturing operations, whether on paper, a PC or a tablet, performing the job at hand while going back and forth to the document is a challenge. Document Navigator is an industrial hands-free head mounted solution that improves worker efficiency, safety and document usability in tough field conditions.
IIoT (also known as Industry 4.0) addresses equipment downtime and industrial worker productivity. Typical smartphone and tablet solutions require the use of both hands and have limited display resolution for dashboard display of multiple data items. With RealWear’s HMT-1 the industrial worker can easily drill down through the information hierarchy with voice commands, even while operating tools or equipment.
Workflow refers to visual instructions, checklists, data entry and image capture procedures to support the system’s entire life cycle: assembly, test, inspection, operation, maintenance, repair and emergency operations. They can range in complexity from a simple checklist for a ball valve to a nuclear reactor plant manual, and they are used by such key personnel as assembly mechanics, technicians in field maintenance or field service, inspection engineers and electricians.
