What is a 3D digital twin? How it works?

Imagine a world where you can walk through your factory floor virtually, in real-time, and see exactly what’s happening. With 3D digital twins, this is no longer science fiction. A 3D digital twin is a virtual replica of a physical factory, constantly updated with real-time data from sensors. This data can include everything from machine temperature and vibration to production line speed and inventory levels.

Beyond the limitations of traditional monitoring

Traditionally, factory monitoring relied on manual inspections, data collected from spreadsheets, and reactive maintenance schedules. This approach is time-consuming, prone to human error, and often fails to catch problems until they’ve caused significant downtime.

With digital twin, the data comes from sensors, stored in a data lake, and artificial intelligence processes it in real-time.

By analyzing sensor data in real-time, the 3D digital twin can trigger early alerts for anomalies. This allows for preventive maintenance, reducing downtime and extending the lifespan of your equipment. Imagine catching a minor bearing issue before it leads to a complete machine failure. The cost savings and improved efficiency can be significant.

Infinite Foundry 3D Digital Twin

A 3D virtual simulation is an evolution developed by Infinite Foundry. It starts with obtaining the 3D model of the interior of the factory and connecting it with the data lake that stores the information from the sensors. Then uses that information to animate in real-time and in 3D what is happening in the factory. That gives an experience to the user to virtually walk-through the factory like if they were walking in reality.

At Infinite Foundry, we are at the forefront of this technology, so that you can optimize production processes, minimize downtime, and gain a significant competitive edge.
