Mixed reality application

HoloGrid

Mixed reality for inspections: the future of work is here.
HoloGrid projects 3D grids onto various geometries such as piping elbows, straight piping sections, reducers, expanders and flat surfaces, interactively blending real-world objects with digital content. Mixed reality is transforming the way inspections are carried out, delivering remarkable cost savings by optimizing operations. By digitalizing the gridding process, the reliability and repeatability of routine precise measurement data significantly improve.

The connected worker

Empowering workers with digital tooling boosts productivity and enhances on-site safety. With the HoloGrid application, the connected worker can quickly visualize, convey and interact with 3D data. QR codes are placed on the asset to correctly position the grid, geometries and parameters. Ultrasonic thickness measurements of pipe sections can be taken, as UT connectivity is integrated in HoloGrid. Once the inspection is finished, the data can easily be downloaded and included in an inspection report.
Gains in efficiency are remarkable as workers can quickly expedite their data collection workflows. Instant remote assistance can be provided, making collaboration seamless.

DIGITALIZATION
Increased reliability

Digitalizing the grid process has a huge impact on the reliability and repeatability of measurement data. To precisely position 3D grids and define geometries and parameters, HoloGrid utilizes QR codes as anchors. Inspection results are gathered in a traceable and verifiable manner, following developed standard procedures.

EFFICIENCY
Reduce costs & execution time

Mixed reality optimizes operations and increases productivity, in turn delivering significant cost savings. Manual gridding is replaced by overlaying 3D grids on various geometries. Connectivity to UT devices provides a cost-effective solution for non-destructive testing.
