On two stands, Sulzer offered to discover the latest developments in separation and mixing solutions hall 4.0, booth # D48, pumping technology and rotating equipment services hall 8.0, booth # A71.
The exhibition brought together experts from across the world and Sulzer took the opportunity to demonstrate its expertise in separation technology for chemical manufacturers, pump design and rotating equipment services.
ACHEMA is the leading chemical and process engineering exhibition that creates a forum for the exchange of ideas and new technology.
Augmented and virtual reality at ACHEMA 2018
At the event, Sulzer Chemtech offered all stand visitors free virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experiences.
We have offered our visitors to jump into another exhibition—100% virtually. In this virtual environment, guests were able to immerse themselves into a full-scale, accurate 360° experience of our equipment — some of which can reach heights of over 50 meters. At the same time, they were able to interact and access relevant information about the products in the form of text, videos and pictures. The app can also be used without VR glasses by using the smartphone screen for navigation.
The app was not the only reality technology featured on the stand. We have also presented a VR experience of a complete process plant and an AR application for a hands-on experience of a chemical process plant. The AR application overlaid video and audio onto the physical world for a firsthand experience of how our equipment fits into a chemical process plant.
