Touchscreen Manipulation Vividly Displays Equipment Design and Function ‘with a Depth and Clarity that Is Unmatched by Traditional 2D Images’

ASTON, PENNSYLVANIA, U.S.A., March 7, 2017: A new app for smartphones and other hand-held devices will enable individuals in the plastics industry to transform two-dimensional images of equipment from Maguire Products, Inc. and Riverdale Global into three-dimensional models that can be manipulated simply by using the touchscreen.

Called Maguire 5D™, the app is downloadable from Apple and Android stores and from a special web page at http://www.maguire.com/page.php/5d.htm. Once installed on the device, the app is activated by special images in print advertisements in industry media or by images posted at the Maguire web page.

After clicking on the app, the user can generate a 3D model by aiming the camera at the 2D image of the equipment in the ad. Touchscreen manipulation makes it possible to examine the interior of components, view material flow through the system, obtain a 360-degree “turntable” view, and examine specific areas of the equipment in close-up. A button for obtaining more information provides a form for messages sent directly to Maguire.

Among the first images to be made available in the ads will be those of the Maguire® weigh scale blender, the VBD™ vacuum dryer, and the Riverdale Gravimetric System (RGS) for metering liquid colors. Maguire Products and Riverdale Global are affiliated companies.

“Maguire 5D will provide the immediacy and interactive convenience of hand-held media,” said Paul Maguire, president of Riverdale Global. “Users will be able to view the features of our products and their mode of operation with a depth and clarity unmatched by traditional 2D media.”
