The industrial metaverse:
Visualize and control your smart factory — in real time

A comprehensive view of your production system, visualized in 3D, and the ability to interact with it in the metaverse. Sound like sci-fi? But the benefits couldn’t be more real.

Bring all your production systems into the metaverse, where you can track and monitor factory production in real time — through a multidimensional digital twin. Sure, it ticks all the boxes of a modern production control system. But it also goes far beyond, giving you a competitive advantage that drives profits.

Re-thinking the factory of the future

Production processes are undergoing monumental changes. Not only are systems and processes becoming more complex, product lifecycles are also getting shorter. Rising energy costs and a shortage of trained personnel are also forcing manufacturers to explore new approaches. Inflexible, hardcoded production systems can’t keep pace with the demands of our times. What we need are resilient, agile, efficient, and future-proof production facilities. With a flexible value chain, comprehensive data contextualization, and a connection to the metaverse.

Real-time visualization

See what’s happening: Follow physical material flows and processes in sync with your physical machines from a virtualized, multidimensional digital twin.

Two-way interaction

Make changes easily — control your production system from the metaverse. Changes in material flows are immediately visible in the metaverse.

Digital records

Say goodbye to mountains of documentation — get both real-time and historical data digitally to enable optimization, tracking, and more.

Interface for third parties

There’s no need to re-invent the wheel. Use third party systems to add real-time process data via the Ascon Industrial Metaverse Portal, then upload it all to the metaverse.

Case Study: BMW

BMW: a digital twin with Ascon Systems in the metaverse

The BMW Group is constantly working on innovative IT solutions to power the factory of the future. At the BMW Innovation Hub in Dingolfing, we deployed the Ascon Qube on a flexible automated assembly system and coupled it to the Nvidia Omniverse platform.

Digital twin technology

The digital twin: bringing the model to life

A static digital twin is already an invaluable asset for production planning and more. The Ascon Industrial Metaverse Portal takes that twin and breathes life into it — by ingesting real-time contextual data. You can then access this data-enriched twin as a real-time 3D visualization using a graphics engine such as NVIDIA’s Omniverse or Threedy’s instant3dhub.

It’s not magic — just very advanced, disruptive technology.

Digital twin

A digital twin in the industrial metaverse:

A broad range of applications

Planning & optimization

Start getting value from your digital twin in the planning phase. Analyze the impact of various production processes on efficiency — and start optimizing costs before production starts. Leverage the comprehensive visibility to identify opportunities and optimize your production systems.

Operations

Real-time interaction with the physical production system in the metaverse allows you to easily control your production facilities from anywhere. You’re less dependent on expert knowledge and capable of sustainably navigating a shortage of skilled workers.

Service & maintenance

Reduce downtime and increase plant efficiency. By synchronizing machine cycles with your digital twin, you can monitor all production processes and react faster to unforeseen events from anywhere in the world.

Your platform for automation

Ascon Qube:

Maximum flexibility through intelligent automation

The Industrial Metaverse Portal is part of the Ascon Qube, which allows you to transform any programmable physical process into a digital one. It grants your production a completely new level of flexibility and agility. Use Ascon Systems to completely model and control your future-ready production line.

01.

Model the connectivity itself

Interfaces between IT and OT no longer need to be hard-coded. Instead, use standardized connectors to link physical processes with your logic model. Upgrade your production system with the flexible, independent, and highly adaptable Ascon Systems Automation Platform. It lets your production planning adapt effortlessly to rapidly changing manufacturing realities.

02.

Easily design the logic

There is no longer any need to program a factory or control sequence. Transform your processes by simply modeling the behavior, interactions, and other possible states. You can re-use your model anywhere.

03.

Optimize and change, anytime

Now, you’re perfectly equipped to adapt to the constantly changing demands of production. Our low-code technology supports planners so that they can optimize and make changes at any time.

04.

Deploy rapidly, anywhere

Production control needs to react quickly. That’s why we offer the matching
high-performance communications infrastructure for your models — on the edge, in the cloud, or in hybrid mode.
