With the acquisition of high-performance processors, improved graphics cards, image processing systems and the desire to always be a pioneer in the use of cutting-edge techniques, VR technology has also found its way into SAB.
Virtual reality enables SAB customers to virtually experience their future machines and plants in early stages of conceptual design and engineering, using 3D rendered models and interacting with them in a 3D world.
Arguments for using virtual reality technology are easy to find. When you look at the design and engineering phases of machinery and plants, such as SAB’s, they are often complicated by the complexity of over-burdening human imagination. Although simulation methods and 3D models on screen can also provide in-depth insights for interrelations, the most important step is still missing – namely the experience.
Virtual reality closes this gap. It enables us to make the complex interrelations easier to understand and, above all, manageable for non-experts.
Well-tried 2D planning data can probably never be replaced, but in many cases the use of VR technology has proven to be a great support to recognize misunderstandings and mistakes already in very early project phases, thus enabling us to avoid them from the outset.
The future is now! As a pioneer of innovation in the industry, SAB lives and internalizes the following:
Change is the law of life. Those who look only to the past or the present will miss the future.
