Acty will partecipate in MECSPE 2022
This June 9th -11th, Acty will be in Bologna for the 20thᵃ edition of MECSPE, the leading manufacturing industry trade fair dedicated to innovative technologies.
A turning point for the manufacturing sector
The Italian manufacturing industry has reached a turning point. Despite the current difficulties related to the shortages of raw materials and energy price increases, the latest Istat data shows a slight increase in manufacturing business confidence (+0.2%) and industry turnover of +20.9% year-on-year. This growth would never have been possible without the advantages brought by digitized innovation.
Come visit us at MECSPE 2022 in Bologna from June 9 to 11!
Book a meeting at the show to experience the latest compatibility between Acty and Hololens 2. We look forward to seeing you in Hall 21, Booth A-18!Book a meeting
Digital Factory Pavilion and Industry 4.0
The Digital Factory Show, within the MECSPE exhibition, addresses issues related to the smart factory, now referred to as Industry 4.0. Here you will get a glimpse of what the future looks like – a world where technology and businesses are increasingly interconnected and smart product manufacturing is commonplace.
Smart glasses and AR technology will naturally have a strong presence in this space with some of the latest innovations and upgrades on display. Some of the innovations we hope to see include more durable and lightweight hardware, allowing for use in a wider range of settings; improved cameras and hand-eye tracking technology, allowing users to perform tasks more accurately; and advances in processing power, enabling hands-free operation for longer periods.
In terms of software, Acty will be showcasing some of the features available as part of a new release. These features enable full compatibility with the Microsoft Hololens 2 headset to provide remote support using AR.
Acty at the forefront of remote support using AR
This latest release from Acty is part of an ongoing effort to enable companies to fully benefit from the latest in AR technologies and smart devices to offer remote support to their customers.
Being able to service and repair complex machinery remotely instead of sending out technicians has been a gamechanger for the industrial sector. Specialized or highly skilled technicians are at a premium and cannot be everywhere at once. When dealing with heavy machinery that needs to be repaired in situ, often in plants in remote locations, that sometimes means that production lines need to wait for repairs. Delays in the production line can be very costly, often causing bottlenecks down the line.
Remote assistance solves all of this! It allows operators to access service through their wearable device and talk to a technician who will guide them through the repair in real-time. All this without them ever having to leave their location!
The savings made in terms of lost production and the cost of remote support as compared to in-person support have made the adoption of smart glass technology a no-brainer for the manufacturing and field service industries.
