The challenge

Greiner, a leading industrial company in the plastic and foam sector, had the opportunity to apply the latest technologies in the new Greiner Next Generation Apprenticeship Training Centre. Apprentices are trained on complex machines and equipment in the company and in the past often reached the limits of their imagination when learning how to operate them. This problem could be solved with a mixed reality application.

The solution

Tieto Austria supported Greiner in the design of a new mixed reality application for the Microsoft HoloLens in the course of establishing a new apprenticeship training centre. This allows apprentices to take virtual machine tours. 

About the customer

With 140 production and sales locations in 33 countries, the Greiner industrial company is one of the world's largest manufacturers and processors of plastic and foam materials. The new Greiner Apprenticeship Training Centre is part of the Greiner Campus in Kremsmünster, Upper Austria.

Even complex content can be communicated more quickly, easily and interestingly using the application

How we did it

The Microsoft HoloLens is an upside-down display unit similar to a pair of glasses and displays interactive 3D holograms in the immediate environment of its wearer. In the case of the machines in a Greiner factory that belongs to the apprenticeship training centre, these are, for example, points defined in advance which the glasses read out and project appropriate content for. This includes texts, videos, 3D models, animations or other information that provide trainees with informative added value. The mode for the projection of a completely virtual machine as a 3D model also provides assistance for trainees in learning how to handle machines and helps to reduce error rates.

The new Microsoft HoloLens has been well received by our apprentices and makes it much easier to make complex content more accessible.
