Resolve Common Electronics Manufacturing Challenges with AR Workflows

In an industry grappling with constant innovation and short product lifecycles, where human errors account for many defects, electronics companies are rethinking how they approach assembly, repair, and recycling to achieve higher levels of quality and productivity.

LightGuide’s projected augmented reality (AR) workflow platform fast-tracks the adoption of new processes to dramatically improve quality, safety and productivity.

Rapid Innovation & Short Lifecycles

Navigate the complexity of an ever-changing product mix and high variation processes with rapid authoring of digital workflows and precise visual guidance.

Inefficient Processes & Quality Issues

Eliminate defects & improve bounce. Transform complex processes into AR workflows for real-time guidance and no-fault-forward quality control.

Labor & Training Challenges

Create effective training programs that reduce the learning curve for new hires and increase proficiency on devices with low repair volumes or higher bounce.

Electronics Recycling

Optimize disassembly, disposal, and recycling processes to safely scale sustainability programs, reduce e-waste and improve material recovery.

Warranty Support & Repair

Standardize, streamline, and error-proof repair processes by equipping technicians with real-time visual guidance to efficiently locate and resolve issues.

Product Traceability

Unlock full traceability to identify deviations at the source. Capture, analyze and report on manual process data for a complete view of operations.
