EON Reality's interactive 3D solutions used by several Machine Tools manufacturers at TIMTOS exhibition

IRVINE, Calif – EON Reality Inc has announced that its interactive 3D solutions have been used by several Machine Tools manufacturers at the TIMTOS exhibition in Taiwan. A bi-annual event, TIMTOS is since 1983 one of the world’s leading exhibitions in the Machine Tools industry with almost 1,000 companies exhibiting and an audience of close to 50,000 attendees.

The Precision Machinery Research & Development Centre in Taiwan (PMC) collaborated with several leading global suppliers of Machine Tools equipment, such as Akira Seiki Co. Ltd and Ching Hung Machinery & Electric Industry Co., Ltd (CHMER), to offer compelling and interactive product and process presentations in 3D based on EON Reality’s solutions. In its own booth, PMC also had their own Virtual Reality theatre, where a large stereoscopic display showcased their latest products interactively in 3D in EON Icatcher.

“The last few years we have increased the use of interactive 3D solutions for exhibitions in order to be able to more effectively convey our value proposition to clients and partners – using the concept and slogan ‘Sell Tech. by Tech’,” said Alan Wei, Manager at the Precision Machinery Research & Development Centre in Taiwan. “By using interactive 3D we can reduce the need for floor space, reduce shipping costs for overseas exhibitions, reduce need for personnel at the exhibition, and still effectively demonstrate our value proposition to our clients. We selected EON Reality as our platform of choice due the real-time visual quality it provides, its ability to offer stereoscopic 3D on the fly and the flexibility and openness of the EON Reality platform that lets us integrate it into other applications such as PowerPoint or Internet Explorer. A key factor of has also been that with EON Reality’s software we can use the real, physical controllers that are used to control a real machine and through them interactively control the virtual EON application,” concluded Mr Wei.

“We are proud to have been selected as a strategic partner and technology provider for this event,” said Pontus Appelqvist, VP Sales Asia. “We see great potential to further strengthen the Precision Machinery industry in Taiwan by using EON Reality’s cutting edge interactive 3D technology and look forward to expand our partnership with the Precision Machinery Research & Development Centre in this endeavour.”
