Augmented reality and virtual reality technologies are increasingly revolutionizing operations in industrial plants. The use of AR and VR is marking a turning point in various areas, also encroaching on sectors such as Oil & Gas since it’s possible to simulate processes within virtual factories, configure product models, create prototypes and train staff to the use of machinery and systems.
By leveraging augmented reality and virtual reality, companies can now analyze and optimize many processes and reduce design and development costs. Neiko, italian company specialized in the development of 3D visualizations and customized XR solutions, has been accompanying societies towards digitization for over 15 years. Using real-time rendering technologies and latest generation devices such as Oculus, HTC Vive and Hololens, Neiko creates immersive experiences suitable for different applications: product design, training, more engaging product presentations during the different stages of the sale (virtual tour and virtual showroom) and solutions capable of virtual simulating business processes to make them more efficient.

The modeling and simulation activity, for example, is one of the most complex phases within a company and requires the use of multiple technologies and the involvement of different figures to meet all the product requirements in terms of design, functionality and safety. By developing digital configuration tools that leverage 3D, AR and VR visualization and personalization, Neiko leads companies to integrate and speed up all of these activities.
Thanks to the integrated configuration it’s possible to have a clearer perception of form, contextualization and functioning of products and machinery as if they were in a real dimension. The ability to customize and view an object in 3D through augmented reality or in a virtual space such as a plant or factory, to simulate its operation or interaction with other products or machinery, allows you to verify the functionality of a plant and foresee the management logics and the logistics of the processing phases. It also saves development time and costs by integrating data and eliminates the risk of errors.
Furthermore, by reproducing usage scenarios in 3D, Neiko guides companies towards an increase in safety in the workplace. By exploiting augmented reality and virtual reality, in fact, it’s possible to simulate the execution of an activity and conduct real exercises to stimulate the learning of operators. The training in VR allows the various technical figures to personally experience dangerous situations without any risk, with a much more effective result that follows the principle of “learning by doing”: when I do, I understand.
