Cemtrex to Release VR/AR Assembly Tool, Workbench VR


Reading time ( words)

Cemtrex Inc. plans to release a virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) software application, called Workbench VR, specifically for the manufacturing industry. This proprietary application is being developed in-house by the company’s recently formed Cemtrex VR team.

Workbench VR is intended to help assembly workers in manufacturing environments utilize VR and AR headsets as well as connected “smart tools” to assemble products faster, reduce errors, and improve the quality assurance process. The application helps workers assemble products using custom designed work flows created by the team in an easy and agile manner. The application can be utilized for all manufacturing industries where various parts are being assembled including aerospace, measurement, automotive, machinery, electronics, and many others. 

The VR/AR software market is currently in its infancy, however, it is expected to reach $215 billion by 2021 with engineering and industrial applications expected to be about 14%, or $30 billion, of that according to market research from Statista. 

Cemtrex Chairman and CEO Saagar Govil commented, “Workbench VR is the first VR / AR application to provide a set of tools to the manufacturing team to assist the worker and manager to accurately track, measure, and improve assembly operations. Due to our extensive experience and number of customers in industrial and manufacturing environments we see this application as the ideal tool to continue to create more value for our clients. Our Workbench VR application will be of immense value to any manufacturing operation that seeks to cut costs and get an edge on their competition.”

Cemtrex plans to release a beta version of the product in the summer of 2018. Companies looking to participate in the beta launch should sign up at www.cemtrexvr.com.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
