As the manufacturing industry continues to move towards more technologically advanced factory systems, it is evident that the strongest component of the modern factory still resides with the human labor force. As automated devices continue to take on the more monotonous, labor-intensive tasks, the machine operators’ roles have shifted from physically demanding work to more skills-based requirements. PBC Linear recognizes the need for consistent and engaging training programs to help scale up our existing work force and invite a new generation into the manufacturing industry. New training strategies that utilize augmented reality (AR) and software from Taqtile are helping us to create a factory that is smarter, safer, and capable of greater output.
This article and the video below are part of a longer series that details how PBC Linear is incorporating technological enhancements into its production systems to create greater efficiency, output, and workforce skills. It further demonstrates how we are advancing manufacturing through augmented reality and supporting software in its training programs, and how that benefits our workers, our business, and most importantly our customers.
