Examples of use smart glasses RealWear HMT-1 in Heneken

Troubleshooting technical problems on gas melting furnace and damper adjustment

Thanks to the smart glasses, technicians on site could better explain the problem and show the current situation to German technicians and also immediately follow their instructions.

Adjusting the casting belt and solving the automatic knocking

Due to travel restrictions, it was not possible for UK technicians to participate in the delivery and installation of the belt. Thanks to the glasses, UK technicians could see exactly the same as local team while installation and troubleshooting procedures.

Immediate solution of operational problems with new furnace technologies

HMT-1 have replaced mobile phones and lengthy email exchanges. They accelerated the solution of operational problems with suppliers and ensured the functionality of technologies.

Presentation of technology to customers who cannot travel due to restrictions

Thanks to the HMT-1, it was possible to make an interactive tour of the factory and introduce the technology and start working with new customers from Sweden and Canada even without their physical presence.

„RealWear HMT-1 greatly simplified our cooperation with partners around the world and increased the efficiency of remote service.“
