Assembly training firm adds augmented reality

ROCHESTER HILLS — EFlex Systems, a provider of manufacturing software and consulting firm, announced a partnership with OPS Solutions LLC of Wixom, maker of Light Guide Systems, to add augmented reality features to eFlex’s web-based, assembly software, Job Element Monitor (JEM), a work instruction module.

“Many of our manufacturing software modules have focused on lean manufacturing utilizing technology,” said eFlex vice president George Jewell. “While our JEM module provides detailed task and model-based work instructions, we understand the additional benefits that augmented reality brings. From this, eFlex and Light Guide Systems have partnered to add this to the eFlex Assembly framework.”

Added Paul Ryznar, founder, CEO and president of OPS Solutions: “Today’s technologies are having a dramatic impact on traditional manufacturing processes. By utilizing powerful AR technology in new ways, we are able to place the right information in the right place at the right time, which has an incredible impact on manufacturing operations, quality, efficiency, training, and inspection. When Light Guide is combined with eFlex Assembly framework, it exponentially accelerates the value for both products.”

Light Guide Systems reduces errors and improves manufacturing and assembly processes by projecting a digital operating canvas directly onto virtually any work surface, providing audio and visual prompts, guidance, pacing, and direction.
