As an innovation driver in the field of dynamic laser and video projection, we at EXTEND3D, part of the Atlas Copco Group, offer dynamic 3D augmented reality systems for worker support in the Industry 4.0 environment. With our patented WERKLICHT technology, prototyping, assembly, quality assurance and rework can be optimized by projecting digital plan, measurement and simulation data directly onto the workpiece. Thanks to Workflow Awareness, analog data about the precise positioning of attachments or the correct use of hand-held tools already flows back from the part and assembly to the digital twin during processing. This digital bridging enables an automated check for completeness and correctness and thus enables a 100% digitized process chain. This is how we meet the challenges that come with complex production tasks, increasing variety and ever shorter product life cycles.
Our vision is for dynamic augmented reality projection to become an everyday, indispensable and readily used tool in industry. Our assembly and inspection tools, or simply put our digital template, should become indispensable tools for all professionals who manufacture complex and high-quality goods.
