Step 1

Download the app from App Store or Google Play

Step 2

Open the app on a device, log in (or scan the barcode of a product if available) and download the process

Step 3

Start the process and follow the work instructions

Marker mode: position an AR marker and read it with a device camera. AR objects will be shown on the pre-set location.

Touch mode: let a device detect surfaces in the environment, and place AR objects on the surface mesh. You can freely rotate and move the AR objects.

Step 4

Finish the process and check the work report

Scenarios

Assembly Manual

Assembly can be frustrating. Technical written texts with 2D images are sometimes confusing and tedious. Misterine’s AR manual visually helps operators understand what to do next at a glance. Depending on their needs, operators can either display virtual 3D objects in space or overlay them on the actual items.

Case study

Assembling a jet engine is extremely complicated. Putting 20,000 parts together according to an engine manual – full of English text and 2D drawings – is not easy even for skilled technicians.

With its universal “visual” language, AR manuals reduce cognitive load and keep technicians focused on their core tasks. They support not only full-fledged workers but also less experienced workers to perform complicated tasks more quickly and smoothly. AR increases work efficiency by 40% – 60%.

Maintenance Manual

Maintenance, inspection and repair require certain skill sets. Especially for non-routine work, even experienced technicians have to rely on manuals. AR manuals help technicians perform necessary procedures in a shorter time and with more precision.

Case study

A technician visited a client’s facility for the periodic maintenance of production equipment. During the maintenance, he saw parts that seemed defective, but he didn’t remember how to exchange the parts.

He opened an AR manual on his smartphone app. The AR manual gave him interactive instructions – procedures for exchanging the parts, reference images and links, questions and flow charts, and confirmation of work. The work was completed without any complication or external help.

Technical Support

In the current globalized marketplace, having worldwide 24/7/365 technical support has become increasingly vital. This also means higher personnel and travel costs, however. AR visual instructions can solve most of these needs remotely while saving time and travel expenses.

Case study

A company kept technicians on call 24 hours a day and sent them to foreign customers whenever required. As running costs were rapidly increasing, they started to look for alternative solutions.

The company decided to introduce AR. Now, customers have visually-guided troubleshooting manuals with all relevant information including warnings, images, prerequisites, spare parts, tools and referential documents – and the demands for technicians and travel have decreased significantly.

User Manual

User manuals in AR could be a perfect tool for improving your customers’ satisfaction. They provide customers with a new user experience, added value and better understanding. With AR, you can get ahead of competitors by providing extra benefits to customers.

Case study

A furniture producer was looking for a way to improve customer satisfaction. One of the identified tasks for improvement was the company’s paper-based user manuals for furniture assembly – they were sometimes confusing and often led to customers damaging furniture in the process.

The company introduced supplemental AR manuals for customers; by scanning the barcode on the furniture box, the customers could activate the relevant AR manual. Customer satisfaction has now increased by 30%.

Training

Training is an essential activity, but it also requires great cost and effort. AR can support any type of training (e.g. operating machinery, emergency, safety, education) and trainees (e.g. new employees, distributors), and drastically reduce trainers’ burden as well as training costs.

Case study

Jet engine assembly is complicated. Trainers demonstrate on an actual engine, but it is still difficult for new trainees to understand, especially when the mechanism is not visible from outside (e.g. inner shaft) or when there are too many similar but different parts (air tubes and gas tubes, etc.).

AR solves most of these problems – it can visually demonstrate the inner mechanism, and highlight confusing parts in different colors. Another great advantage of AR is that trainees can learn at any time and any place.

Trade Fair

Exhibitions are the perfect place to catch potential customers, but delivering large equipment or products to exhibitions is pricy. By bringing the entire product lineup in AR and displaying it in actual size, you can attract more visitors and make maximum use of trade fairs.

Case study

An industrial robot manufacturer was seeking a way to do marketing effectively. They had been spending a substantial amount of their budget on domestic and international trade fairs. Then they saw one of their competitors promoting products in AR and that it was attracting great attention from trade-fair visitors.

So, the company decided to try AR, too. They placed one actual machine at the booth, and demonstrated other machines and accessories in AR. As a result, they received 40% more visitors and 25% more inquiries.

Sales Presentation

AR can be a great sales tool. Firstly, customers can walk around your 3D products and see them in 360 degrees. Secondly, you can demonstrate products both on a smaller scale and in actual size. Thirdly, AR makes it easier to sell products without needing to visit customers.

Case study

A machinery manufacturer was struggling to persuade a potential client to purchase replacement equipment. The main reason was that the client couldn’t compare the size and functionalities of the offered equipment with their current equipment, and therefore wasn’t convinced of the benefits.

The company brought AR presentations to the client. On the shop floor, they demonstrated the equipment and functionalities in 3D. The client finally understood the benefits of the equipment and decided to purchase the replacement equipment.

Product Catalogue

Instead of sending or bringing a product catalogue to customers, you can use a tablet or phone to present your product lineup in AR. You can also demonstrate how the products work, show what kind of add-ons the products could have, or check if the products fit in the available space on the customer’s premises.

Case study

An injection molding manufacturer introduced an AR catalogue as a tool to demonstrate their machinery and add-ons on a customer’s shop floor. One of the customer’s largest concerns was if the machinery and add-ons would fit in the dedicated space.

Now the customer is satisfied because they can evaluate if the machinery is suitable for their factory prior to the purchase. They are currently considering the purchase of add-ons to their existing machinery.
