Canon Virginia showcases moldmaking at NPE2015 through "mixed reality"

Canon Virginia Inc. (CVI; Newport News, VA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A. Inc., knows that promoting value is key to success. The company has been working diligently on its value chain and demonstrated this commitment at NPE2015. CVI is sharing a range of moldmaking products and services through two interactive stations for attendees to experience first-hand several of Canon's innovative technologies.     

Canon VirginiaOne station includes the Canon MREAL Solution for mixed reality, a product that combines the virtual world of computer-generated imagery with the real-world environment. At this station, attendees will be able to "virtually see" the capabilities of some of Canon's moldmaking solutions and how they can apply to targeted industries.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to see the efficiencies and capabilities of a Canon injection mold tool running in a Sumitomo molding machine, which will produce yo-yos for guests throughout the show.
