Getac, a manufacturer of rugged mobile devices designed for the industrial manufacturing sector, has launched a virtual showroom designed to provide more product information to end user customers.

Getac, established in 1989, provides rugged laptops, rugged tablets, software, and mobile video solutions for defence, police, firefighters, utilities, automotive, manufacturing, transport and logistics.

Getac's manufacturing virtual showroom uses 3D to provide an overview of the company's solutions for the manufacturing industry, particularly as the industry increasingly looks to ICT to solve operational challenges and support future growth.

Getac business development manager Frand Baldrighi says the virtual showroom enables visitors to explore Getac devices ‘from any angle', saving time and resources and making it simpler to conduct demonstrations online.

Baldrighi adds, “Getac offers a full range of industry-specific accessories, software, and services designed to ensure perfect mobility and ease of use. In manufacturing environments, this helps manufacturers to run more productively, solve challenges faster, and perform at their peak. For the first time, this can be demonstrated in an immersive 3D virtual environment.”

The virtual showroom demonstrates different manufacturing applications, such as:

  • Process production management – the manufacturing of products such as oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, or paints requires equipment certified for use in potentially explosive environments. Secure and efficient process production management is critical. 
  • Shop floor and discrete production management – to improve resource management and real-time processes, the shop floor control (SFC) tracks, monitors, and supervises manufacturing people, processes, and materials on the shop floor. It digitises discrete production management to produce goods. 
  • Warehouse, stock management, and intralogistics – effective and automated inventory management is key to modern manufacturing, minimising data redundancy, and increasing the speed, efficiency, and flexibility of manufacturing operations. 
  • Asset management and maintenance – effective tracking and management of equipment and inventory reduces downtime due to equipment failure. This also enables effective scheduling of maintenance programs to lower infrastructure maintenance costs. 
  • Transport and delivery – digitalisation and the introduction of innovative technologies are driving intralogistics in manufacturing. Effective transport and delivery solutions optimise the flow of information and the transport of goods, increasing productivity and reducing throughput times. 
  • Quality control – manufacturing quality control ensures products are defect-free and meet industry and company standards as well consumer expectations. 

Getac Technology Corporation is a subsidiary of MiTAC-Synnex Business Group with a 2020 annual revenue of US $41.3 billion and listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange.
