Hands-Free Solutions for Smart Factories
Enable Line Workers with Secure Hands-Free Collaboration
Digital Transformation in Manufacturing
Smart factories focus on accelerating the assembly of products from supplier to shipping, reducing errors and ramping up production to meet growing global demand. Digital transformation through IoT, AI and Connected Workers will enable your workforce to work safely and effectively, shoulder-to-shoulder with collaborative robots, and deliver tangible return-on-investment.
Improve user experience with new innovations
Enhance the quality of products and processes
Create a consistent, collective way of working
Minimise waste across the supply chain
Develop safe working practices in real-time
Synchronise workflow and daily activities
Low situational awareness results in slow response. Technicians have difficulty meeting aftermarket SLA’s with a geographically distributed customer base, which triggers costly penalties.
Turn the customer into your field diagnostic team by calling customer support with video instead of voice. Technicians improve efficiency and accuracy by using the voice-activated HMT-1 with remote mentor solutions to: connect hands free with Product Quality Engineers (PQEs), capture images and videos, playback training videos, refer to manuals, and more.
When production stops due to machine failure, on-site technicians need assistance immediately to resume production. However, the expert for this machine may be located in a different city, state, or country.
Through peer-to-peer video collaboration on the HMT-1, experts can provide assistance by telestrating remotely to pin-point the exact issue – even in high-noise environments. Hands-free communication permits technicians the use of tools to operate machines.
Secure Knowledge Transfer
Workers do not have the latest knowledge for manufacturing operations, including machine installation, inspection, and maintenance procedures. Paper copies are kept in binders adjacent to the manufacturing lines for reference by operators, but these are cumbersome and pose a security risk.
Document navigator and single sign-on (SSO) allows documents to be securely synced to HMT devices. Operators simply scan a QR code on a machine and are brought directly to the correct document to address their issue. Files are then remotely wiped when security credentials are revoked.
