CP Group, the San Diego-based recycling solutions provider and equipment manufacturer, unveiled its Virtual MRF over a year ago. Now, for the first time, the company has announced it will be on display internationally at Residuos Expo 2018 in Guadalajara, Mexico.
The Virtual MRF is a virtual reality simulation that uses two hand-held controls and a virtual reality headset to allow users to navigate through a life-size computer-generated model of a material recovery facility (MRF) in real time.
“We are very excited to showcase our VR technology at this monumental show,” Jesus Vargas, sales drafting manager for CP Group, says. “CP Group was the first to bring VR into the recycling equipment manufacturing industry. Our Virtual MRF system aids our engineers in developing sort systems. It also provides to our customers a very concrete sense of what their facility will look like long before anything is actually built.”
Residuos Expo, Latin America’s largest waste industry conference, is occurring concurrently with Expo Plasticos, with a combined expected attendance of 18,000 industry professionals. The show runs from Nov. 7-9.
Vargas and other members of the CP Group team will be running Virtual MRF demonstrations throughout Residuos Expo at booth No. 2112.
