Applications

Mechanical Assembly

Simplify any mechanical assembly process into step-by-step instructions and verify whether user measurements meet specification.

Paint Masking

Project unlimited paint schemes, increase precision, and reduce masking time for automotive, aerospace and shipbuilding.

Wire Harness

Eliminate wire harness rework due to human error by displaying tasks directly onto the harness board.

ProjectionWorks

Mixed Reality For Manufacturing​

ProjectionWorks™ is a family of products that are used to provide three-dimensional instructions to various manufacturing processes.

  • Mechanical Assembly – provides assembly and inspection instructions

  • Paint Masking – provides paint scheme viewing and masking instructions

  • Measurement Assistance – provides data input from a GripGage™to user application software

  • Wire Harness Assembly – provides wire harness assembly instructions

  • Kit Preparation – provides kit presentation for nested cut/stamped material

3D Projection Mapping Solution

ProjectionWorks™ patented software was first developed by Delta Sigma Company in 2010 in collaboration with the United States Airforce Research Program. The goal was to provide a low-cost solution for delivering clear and specific optically projected work instructions onto an aircraft.

The result was a hardware/software solution that includes everything needed to display a significant amount of knowledge to assembly technicians for a large number of different types of assembly tasks. This knowledge is displayed at the exact place that it is needed, in an order that has been predetermined to be the optimal build-sequence. This type of instruction set is extremely beneficial to manufacturers of aircraft, rockets, satellites, missiles, bombs, ships, submarines, boats, heavy equipment, buses, or other types of large, relatively low production but complex, high-value systems.

What is

Mixed Reality?

We use mixed reality to simplify complex tasks. This is achieved through projection mapping, which involves an integrated system importing and creating 3D geometry to project simple yet concise work instructions onto a contoured surface.

Unlike augmented reality, which is a live video stream from a camera that is being augmented by virtual reality components added into the video, mixed reality goes one step further by enabling the user to view a real physical object and see virtual reality superimposed on it.

2012 Defense Manufacturing Technology Award

The 2012 Defense Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Achievement Award recognizes and honors the team whose project demonstrated outstanding technical accomplishments in achieving the Department of Defense ManTech Program vision to “realize a responsive world-class manufacturing capability to affordably meet war fighters needs throughout the defense system life cycle.” The annual award is sponsored by the Joint Defense Manufacturing Technology Panel (JDMTP), and was presented on Nov. 27, 2012, at the Defense Manufacturing Conference in Orlando.
