Transforming Manufacturing Through AR

In our recent webinar, New Augmented Reality for American Manufacturing, we revealed how Magic Leap, in collaboration with Taqtile’s Manifest application, provided an unrivaled solution to the mounting challenges faced by manufacturer PBC Linear.

Overall, the solution helped PBC Linear operate and scale more effectively in several areas.

Deliver New Efficiencies and Process Improvements
PBC Linear utilized Taqtile’s Manifest on Magic Leap 1 to reduce training time for workers from almost three weeks to just three days – an 80% reduction in time.

Boost Productivity and Minimize Downtime
Along with reduced training time, PBC Linear saved almost $100,000 (USD) by reducing scrap and minimizing costly errors.

Attract Better Talent and Reduce Employee Turnover
New employees were enthusiastic to use Magic Leap’s augmented reality device to train more effectively and to increase productivity.

Simplify Training Procedures
Magic Leap’s device made PBC Linear’s training more efficient and interactive.

Save on Costs Tied to Training, Down-time and Human Error
PBC Linear realized substantial employee cost savings, including savings of more than $7,000 (USD) per employee across new machinist onboarding.

In case you missed this in-depth discussion of our manufacturing case study with PBC Linear and Taqtile, the webinar is now available for you to view. If you have questions or wish to speak with a Magic Leap representative, please contact

Augmented Reality Addresses the Challenges of Modern Manufacturing


Retiring Workforce

As employees leave,
they take decades of vital
knowledge with them.


Recruitment Hardships

Younger workforce is less
interested in careers in


Inefficient, Costly Training

Training new employees to become
proficient with machine tools is
time-, labor-, and cost-intensive.

Revolutionizing Modern Manufacturing


Attracting New Employees

Younger workers learn new skills
faster using AR. And they retain
valuable information easier.


More Flexibility in Training

Experienced employees no longer
need to be on site. They can guide
trainees from just about anywhere.


Time and Cost Savings

With efficient training and better
knowledge retention, there were
notable savings due to less downtime,
fewer errors, and more productivity.
