FabStation: Augmented reality in Steel Fabrication

The Canadian company FabStation shares the same ambition as Steel Projects: to bring innovative solutions and technologies to the steel fabrication sector. That's why the partnership between our two companies was an obvious choice. FabStation solutions are developed by this company, and we are their reseller. They add further value to Steel Projects' workshop management solutions through augmented reality on either tablet or Microsoft HoloLens 2 glasses.
