Optimise your production site with a spatial digital twin
Bram Van Londersele |
Discover how a digital twin can help you optimally manage the space of your company site. DigitalTwin.BE, part of the MEET HET group, inventories production sites and company buildings and makes them digitally accessible in the form of 360° panoramas, point clouds, 2D plans, 3D models and virtual factories. The geo digital twins are extremely suitable for the remote management of one or more sites, the preparation of engineering projects, the coordination of relocations and the reduction of standstills.

How can machine vision help creating human-centric workplaces
Pieter Langsweirdt | Kapernikov
Machine vision improves the speed and precision of quality inspection and process control. It makes asset control permanent and consistent.

At Kapernikov, we like to think about what's next. Pushing the technological state of the art forward. Further increasing the return on investment. While keeping the risk of innovation under control.

But we also aim for the bigger purpose. How can we make the lives of machine or production operators more comfortable. Away from harmful environments. How can we use technology to turn a numbing job into a motivating experience?

May we inspire you with real projects?
