Excavator Inspection Training in AR (Augmented Reality)
An excavator is a heavy tracked construction vehicle commonly used for demolition and earthmoving work. Like all heavy machinery, using an excavator comes with inherent risks and involves a number of safety procedures, including rigorous inspection of the machine before each shift. The operator must check the condition of the machine to ensure that it will not put anyone at risk.
While personal safety is essential, there are other considerations as well. Failing to perform a thorough inspection can significantly degrade a machine's performance by negatively impacting its productivity, reliability and component longevity. Performing a thorough inspection before starting the engine will ensure this costly equipment lasts as long as possible.
However, training staff to detect and recognize potential anomalies in an excavator is not easy. Few companies have the space or means to store old hydraulic excavators and other out-of-service construction equipment just for educational purposes.
