The implemented solution: SHOWROOM VR
Thanks to Showroom VR, TMI can present the 3D model of the machine in Virtual Reality to the customer before manufacturing it. This allows the customer to see the accessibility of the machine, all aspects related to ergonomics, access points, maintenance adjustment, among others.
TMI is a company specialised in the design, manufacture and supply of complete packaging lines, consisting of dosing equipment, bagging equipment, palletising equipment and stretch wrapping equipment. It has a very clear objective of offering customised solutions to its customers.
What does TMI need?
The challenge TMI set us was that, thanks to Virtual Reality, they could improve the design development phase of their machines. So that, through the use of Virtual Reality or VR glasses, their R&D team could preview the 3D prototypes of their machines, so that TMI could present them to their customers before manufacturing them.
This was not an easy task, as the company offers the highest quality standards to its customers and has several lines of machinery, including dosing, bagging, palletising, overpacking and weighing equipment. As can be seen in the video, they manufacture very different machines, with the added challenge of providing customised solutions for each of their customers.
At TMI, when they are in the development phase of new prototypes, the 3D design tools they use allow them to see the machine in detail, but are insufficient when they are in the customer validation phase. Thanks to Showroom VR, these technical aspects add very high value to the technical solution during the validation process and they obtain very high customer satisfaction.
Another benefit that TMI has found internally is that Showroom VR also helps assembly technicians to assess which parts to pre-assemble and which to assemble before or after.
- Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality give the customer control over the manufacture of their machinery.
- It boosts advertising and sales actions.
- Optimises user training.
From TMI, we contacted Invelon and we were able to send them the 3D model, which in this case was a bagging machine and they quickly generated a space where they put the machine and gave us the opportunity to check it. They proposed everything on the table and set everything up very quickly. When we sent them the 3D, we had it ready in a week and the modifications in a couple of days, and they were always available to follow up on the project. The experience has been 100% satisfactory and we are delighted to repeat.
