Category: Frequently Asked Questions

What distinguishes Infinite Foundry from competition?

Infinite Foundry uses 3D digital twin technology, which means it scans the facility to get a precise 3D model, unlike competition that only collects data from the facility. From the 3D model it is possible to assist the real time animation of the factory. Other digital twin companies in the market present the data in a…

Do we do outdoor environments?

Yes, in that case we scan the outdoor environments with the laser scanner mounted on a drone or a car.


What do we really sell? A service or a software?

Infinite Foundry sells a software that processes the data from laser scan to obtain a 3D model of the building and the and production equipment. This 3D model is animated through the connection with the factory sensors. Typically in the first project we deliver the turnkey service. This includes the scan, the 3D scenario which…

Is workers data secure?

Yes, the name of the workers is never recorded. Each worker is assigned to a number. Only the company has access to the names. The motion capture device only measures the movement of the body and stress conditions, like bad posture and the impact the position has in the body. It does not measure the…

Do I need to buy any software for the program run?

No, the 3D scenario is installed like a videogame, so it does not require any further software. It is only necessary to run the setup. The software that processes the laser scan and builds the 3D model is constantly updated by Infinite Foundry. The customer can pay those updates through an annual contract that also…

How the scenarios are updated? Do we need to call Infinite Foundry whenever we change the factory?

The scenarios are updated by re-scan the area that was changed, and that laser scan can be done for the customer. That change is then updated in the previous 3D model. The customer can rent the laser scan equipment to Infinite Foundry.

What is possible to do besides the digital twin of the facility?

The 3D model makes it possible to overlay scenarios (production layouts) in the factory in order to plan the installation and workflow of a production change or a completely new production line since it can be seen in augmented reality. Furthermore it can be used to train workers in an immersive virtual reality environment. It…

Where is the data stored?

The 3D data is stored in the customer computing system. Only the customer has access to the data. Infinite Foundry at the beginning of the contract only delivers the 3D virtual scenario of production connected to the factory and then provides technical support. The 3D data can also be stored in a cloud system, and…

What is the return on investment if I chose Infinite Foundry?

Since Infinite Foundry technology is linked with Artificial Intelligence it early recognizes when production has a problem. The longer it is used the better it recognizes the patterns. Hence, it will warn if it sees something that usually leads to a problem. This means less production downtime because it is possible to swiftly fix the…
