VirtualPaint is heading to the U.K. for Automechanika!
Canescens BV, our Europe, Middle East and Africa distributor, will be at stand 18E4 showcasing the VirtualPaint, a painter training system that combines our proprietary software with state-of-the-art tracking hardware and a real (customized) spray gun to create an on-screen virtual environment. The realism and functionality of the system are uncanny and can best be compared to simulator airline pilot training.
Throw back to May 2015 at Automechanika Johannesburg when VirtualPaint received the Innovation Award!
The judges panel for the Automechanika Johannesburg trade show awarded VirtualPaint with an Innovation Award for its lifelike simulation technology that will help to quicken the training and evaluation of spray painters, promoting fast learning through its ability to provide instant feedback and by eliminating traditional requirements such as spray booth time.
