GlobalFoundries uses PTC augmented reality to transform chip manufacturing
August 1, 2019
Workers in chip factories have to be skillful at operating machines that cost millions of dollars; if a worker makes a mistake, that can be very costly. So big companies like GlobalFoundries don’t mind paying higher prices for AR glasses now in order to train workers so they avoid those mistakes.
GlobalFoundries recognizes this value proposition, and it is deploying AR solutions to improve manufacturing processes and productivity in its worldwide factories. GlobalFoundries is using Vuforia to digitize standard operating procedures (SOPs) for training manuals and maintenance processes, improve remote expert assistance, and construct digital twins for powering AI engines.
