Con-Vey is excited to share their continued initiative to expand virtual business practices.

From incorporating new, advanced technologies that use digital twins and augmented reality to attending online trade shows and events like the International Mass Timber Conference last Spring, Con-Vey is making a concerted effort to stay ahead of the curve. And although this shift to a more virtual world is occurring across most industries today, Con-Vey is going above and beyond the norm to advance, including working remotely with customers.

“We’re really excited about the ability to offer remote startups and commissioning for our customers,” said Con-Vey mechanical engineering manager, Spencer Heard. Remote assistance has allowed the engineers at Con-Vey to monitor and trouble shoot customer equipment from the convenience of their desk.

With programs like ABB RobotStudio, virtual reality software, and Autodesk Inventor Shared Views, the Con-Vey team can seamlessly design, program, visualize, and collaborate not only together but with their customers as well. Con-Vey’s engineers and field technicians are even using mixed reality smartglasses, called Microsoft HoloLens, to streamline their remote commissioning, communication, trouble shooting, and visualization.
