Highly effective during the state of emergency due to the third wave of coronavirus
As the infection of the new coronavirus continues to spread, there is an urgent need to introduce infection prevention measures at manufacturing sites. There are increase tendency for efforts such as working from home and remote monitoring using ICT (Information and Communication Technology).
For manufacturing industry, which has a production base in Malaysia, it is inevitable to continue producing, procuring, and purchasing products while implementing infection prevention measures.
Until now, we often travelled to do physical check on products with our own eyes, both in Japan and overseas, conducted quality audits, process confirmations, and pre-shipment inspections. However, due to restrictions on overseas travel, it is difficult to check the production line of the product with our own eyes. Each company is using various tools to search for the best alternatives for site visits, but at the same time, they are facing major telework issues such as poor image quality and the inability to find the part they want to check.
NEWJI VR uses 360-degree, close-up mode to make you feel as if you are in the field.
360-degree mode gives you an omnidirectional view of the entire factory. By installing the VR HMD, you can feel as if you are in the field, and you can check the real-time image 360 degrees with your own eyes. In addition, in the close-up mode, you can check the clear image quality in real time, for small scratches and dust on the product, which you often check when you go on a business trip. Now you also can perform online remote audits without visiting the site.
* In the red circle, it shows the image quality of services equivalent to those of other companies. (Scratches look hazy.) While in NEWJI VR close-up mode, the image quality is clear and even the grain of wood is clearly visible.
What is NEWJI VR?
While the number of online and remote work tools in the manufacturing industry is increasing, NEWJI VR is the Japan's largest number of users for factory inspection services in Japan. With the acquisition of a license, the target area can be inspected by factories around the world. The single-use LITE plan is also available in Japan, China, Taiwan, and Malaysia, and the area is expanding at any time. The cost reduction effect is also enormous.
You can inspect the production line of your own products produced at the factory in Malaysia
With the establishment of a new Malaysia base, Malaysia has been added to the countries that can be used in the LITE plan.
Even during the preliminary questionnaire, usually the needs for visiting the Malaysian factory are extremely high, the business alliance with TK International has made it possible to use it in the LITE plan.

TK International Sdn. Bhd. CEO Shingo Abe Comment
While the spread of the new coronavirus infection worldwide restricts entry into Malaysia and movement within Malaysia, many Japanese companies in Malaysia, including the manufacturing industry, cannot accept inspections for business trips and customer development. This will bring bad impact and business opportunities are impaired.
We are confident that the online VR factory inspection "NEW JI VR", which will be launched in Malaysia, will solve such problems that are occurring in the corona disaster and contribute to the success of our customers' businesses.
