Grupo Boticário Deploys Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses in its Brazil Plant
AREA member Vuzix announced in October that Grupo Boticário, a large cosmetic company in South America, deployed the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses at its Camaçari manufacturing facility in Brazil.
Before COVID-19, specialists from the Pinhais facility would have to make 1500 mile trips to the Camaçari plant for product development monitoring. The Smart Glasses have enabled specialists to remotely provide support to factory operators during production. The operators receive expert video and audio support while remaining hands-free. A reduction in travel time allows for greater productivity while also reducing carbon footprint.
Paulo Roseiro, Research and Development Director at Boticário Group, has said that the company is utilising many ways of meeting needs, producing quality, and maintaining safety, one being their deployment of Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses. President and CEO of Vuzix, Paul Travers, has also said that their Smart Glasses continue to reduce costs, increase safety, and improve product quality across the globe.
