Glartek Launches Project to Develop a Solution for Industrial Maintenance Using Augmented Reality

Glartek announces the launch of a new SaaS solution that supports industrial players throughout all phases of their maintenance procedures supported by innovative Augmented Reality capabilities.

Lisbon, April 2022 – Glartek, an Industry 4.0 deep tech solution provider, has launched a new R&D project to develop a SaaS solution that provides real-time access to relevant maintenance information for industrial players. The solution uses an interface supported by augmented reality to streamline all phases of maintenance procedures and is aligned with the scope of the European Excellence Seal Award received by the Augmented Reality leader.

The project aims to develop a SaaS platform, new modules, and a final validation system for customers to be able to perform their maintenance procedures in a more efficient and safe way. The company is taking important steps toward commercializing the solution. The current version of the solution is nearing product maturity, so it’s crucial to expand the tech team to meet the growing demand from new customers.

The project is expected to yield significant benefits, including enhanced productivity, greater production efficiency, minimized downtime, and increased sustainability for businesses, all of which result in greater customer satisfaction.

“We are thrilled to be at the forefront of the digital transformation in the industry with the development of our SaaS solution. By supporting industrial players in their maintenance procedures, we are increasing productivity, efficiency, and sustainability. Our innovation project is a true booster for this new era of digitalization, and we’re excited to be a part of it.” said Bruno Duarte, CEO at Glartek.

This solution is being developed in the context of the project “Revolutionary AR eyes for industrial maintenance”, funded by Portugal 2020 and Fundo Europeu de Desenvolvimento Regional (FEDER).
