Virtalis Hosts Virtual Reality Theatre at IMTS
Virtalis, the leading Virtual Reality (VR) Company, is hosting a Virtual Reality Theater at the 29th International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), which will be held at Chicago’s McCormick Place between September 10th-15th.
IMTS is one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world, with more than 1,800 exhibitors and 82,000 visitors. The Virtalis Virtual Reality Theater will allow attendees to experience the power of the relationship between design, manufacture and data, all in stunning immersive VR.
Virtalis will be displaying at Advanced Manufacturing Center’s (AMC ) booth located at W-160 West Building. Delegates will be able to experience numerous, industry-specific demonstrations and models running in Virtalis’ Visionary Render and other visualization packages including:
• Factory Planning in VR
• Transfer of Point Cloud data into VR
• Transfer of CAD into VR
• Product Design in VR
Dr Rab Scott, head of Virtual Reality and Simulation at the UK’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and Nuclear AMRC, will be giving talks throughout IMTS on the benefits of VR technology within advanced manufacturing. “We are finding that VR is the perfect medium to communicate complex tasks visually to stakeholders”, he commented.
“VR is now mainstream within manufacturing”, said David Cockburn-Price, Virtalis Inc. CEO. “Working with leading companies like Gardner, Lanner and a host of mainstream and specialist CAD companies, we are proving that VR reduces errors, optimizes design, reduces or eliminates physical prototypes, improves factory processes and enables the most efficient layouts. These, of course, are all claims that CAD companies have been making for years now, but we can prove our successes with our clients. Companies like Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems, CNH, PACCAR and top power firms are all harnessing the power of VR and advanced 3D visualization as a common communication tool across the product life cycle.”
