Efficient product integration and process validation with Extended Reality (XR​)

ESI Group welcomes you to a digital high-level interactive event speaking about industry solutions based on Extended Reality (XR). We address the digital transformation challenges and showcase our technology's industrial value through a mix of presentations, panel discussions, and live Virtual Reality demonstrations. At this occasion, we encourage customers to tell their stories and invited the best experts to demonstrate the great capabilities of the technology.

  • Breaking the silos between design, manufacturing, and maintenance​
  • Integrating human interactions through the product development lifecycle​
  • Assuring on-time delivery, optimal performance, and a safe & efficient work environment

With Virtual Reality, decrease lead times to meet the start of production, at controlled quality and cost. See how to validate product integration early in a human-centric way without physically constructing a single thing.

Virtual Process Validation - VR DEMO with IC.IDO

Virtual Process Validation demo showcasing Virtual Try-outs with IC.IDO Weave. Delivering “true-to-life” human-centric process and product evaluations, IC.IDO Virtual Reality software solution enables engineering teams to evaluate decisions early in product development when design changes can still be made without incurring dramatic costs or delays. This way, many OEMs affirm their sustainability goals by freeing themselves from physical mock-ups, whilst avoiding late surprises in production. Join us in this VR demo, to understand how the immersive virtual environment also enables collaborative engineering as well as a way to experience, validate and communicate design decisions throughout every step of your product development.
