The AR Remote Assistance in the cement industry has fundamental importance. AR provides effective and sustainable solutions for the cement industry. At the same time, this industry has wide use in plastering, waterproofing, flooring, and construction of various structures. Most people perceive this industry as a category where digital technology does not find much space for adoption. Taking into account the benefits of digital technology, this industry is aiming towards the adoption of new technological methods.
Cement companies are adopting various technological trends. Also, are becoming part of the innovative changes that affect every industrial field. But this adoption of technological trends especially for this industry is happening with gradual steps. It is worth mentioning here that Augmented Reality ( AR) Remote Assistance is an important component in all industrial fields. Remote Assistance particularly affected by the corona pandemic has aroused the curiosity of many businesses for adoption. Moreover, its adoption has shown that performing of maintenance, servicing, and short-term problem solving can be done remotely in real-time.
Let us take a deeper look at how AR Remote Assistance experts provide efficient remote support. Also, ensure minimization of downtime machines in the manufacturing processes in this industry.
Effective communication among experts and plant workers
An article published by Thermofisher states that the total value of cement sales was about $ 8.9 billion. Cement production is a complex process that begins with mining and then grinding. Including here raw materials comprising limestone and clay. Also, the fine powder needs heating to a sintering temperature of up to 1450 ° C in a cement kiln. In this process, the chemical bonds of the raw materials broke down. Then they are recombining into new compounds. The result is called clinker, which are rounded joints between 1 mm and 25 mm. The clinker is ground to a fine powder in a cement mill and mixed with gypsum to form cement.
Taking into account the conditions of the place where the production starts as well as the difficulty to keep the plant machinery in continuous working condition, efficient solutions are always required to facilitate these processes. Now, thanks to remote assistance, the center experts see with their own eyes the work of the plant workers. So, they come to help from any kind of location for problems that may encounter.
Improved efficiency in service
The challenges related to the machinery used during cement production are numerous. Moreover, the period of the pandemic with its limitations made it more difficult to keep these machines in working order. But now the challenges of the management and maintenance of these machines are reducing. Managers and employees of this industry manage to see the potential that AR Remote Assistance has. Additionally, through it is able to end the long journeys that experts make to come to the site. This saves time and enables the experts to transfer their knowledge in real-time to the plant workers. All this is thanks to the effective communication enabled by AR Remote Assistance. In this way they are. able to solve problems encountered with machines in real-time. This leads to the reduction of machine downtime by minimizing costs of lack of production and the travel of experts.
Process Control & Predictive Maintenance
The benefits of AR Remote Assistance make it possible for the transferring of information to field workers. Also, at the same time, the experts of the center control every production process. They are also able to make assessments of the work and successful or unsatisfactory performance of tasks by plant workers. By virtually inspecting the machines, the experts also take into account any defects that may arise. AR instructions help the expert to be precise in the details. Thus significantly facilitating the work of workers by helping them to prevent problematic situations that may arise. Moreover, AR Remote Assistance offers an innovative way for the on-board process of new workers, which is an important advantage in terms of group training from different locations and reducing the time spent on the traditional training way.
To conclude, it is worth mentioning that AR Remote Assistance supports cement manufacturers worldwide with sustainable solutions based on real-time AR annotations and that enable the provision of the necessary expertise and experience to the plant workers. Thanks to this remote assistance, we have improved of maintenance processes of the production machinery of this industry. Additionally, from this is possible to get maximum performance and efficiency.
