Howden joins Microsoft and PTC to introduce the Microsoft HoloLens2

Published on: 

Microsoft HoloLens 2 could offer a new way of looking at equipment and giving the customer the information they need at their fingertips. With PTC’s Vuforia software, Howden has created an environment that leverages the features and functionality of the HoloLens 2 along with its rotating equipment knowledge to help turbomachinery users make informed decisions and optimize performance.

Using the Microsoft HoloLens 2, turbomachinery customers have a new way to look at their equipment which has not been available before. These tools enable companies to adopt a new wave of computing that bridges the digital and physical world.


HoloLens technology provides a truly immersive experience. It offers the ability to grab and rotate holograms like a real object. Until now, most people have experienced computing through a flat piece of glass: laptop, computer monitor, phone, tablet, video games on a TV. Microsoft’s mixed reality offerings draw digital information out of rectangular screens and allow people to interact with holograms in physical space.
