Texmark, CB Technologies, and RealWear: Refinery of the Future


(upbeat country music)
– Texmark is America.
We are made up of diverse people
from diverse backgrounds,
diverse abilities,
working together towards a single goal
of safety, profitability,
and forward movement.
– We are a global operation.
We’re also within view
of downtown Houston,
the energy hub of the world.
– Workin’ here in a
refinery, you wanna make sure
all your devices are intrinsically safe.
Your HMT-1 takes care of all aspects.
It’s intrinsically safe,
keeps anything from sparking.
Any of these products,
they’re all flammable.
– We’re enthusiastic about working
with RealWear and this product, HMT-1.
We believe it’s one of the first
of its kind brought to market.
It’s answering a lot of questions that
customers are asking related to training,
safety, geo-referencing, communications.
It gives us a large palette
of testing and functionality
that we can bring to
bear with new customers
and open the door for new business.
– The reason that Texmark
went with RealWear
is because we see the
longevity of the product.
– And the fact is is that
we’re using technology already,
from cell phones to Google maps,
and so, we wanna use
technology at work as well.
Yes, they’re gonna need a valve wrench
and yes, you’re gonna need your gloves
but, you know, do they really wanna be
flipping through pages
or printing something,
or, you know, old school laminating?
One of my favorite success stories
is our story about Carlos.
Carlos’ responsibility is to ensure that
all of the rail cars are secured properly
and that we have documentation for that.
We had a situation where
our camera was broken
and he came to me immediately and he said,
“Look, we can’t ship
the very next rail car
“unless we have a way to take pictures.”
– The camera we used before was about
anywhere from eight to ten pounds.
We would carry it up
the stairs, the ladders,
we’d have to carry it while we’re working,
making sure we didn’t drop it.
With the HMT-1, we’re hands free.
We don’t need any extra tools.
Our radios can be communicated
through the HMT-1.
With the old ten pound
brick camera, it would take
every bit of 45 minutes
to finish our post check.
With HMT-1, you tell it to
take photo, it’s instantaneous,
I mean, gets it done right away.
– [Stan] This allows them to do their
job quicker, smarter, faster.
Get in and get out of
a volatile environment.
– The RealWear device is
essential to safety at Texmark
because it provides connectivity,
communication, and information.
– In addition, it proved
to be a great training tool
so we don’t have to spend as much time
transferring knowledge
from one person to another.
So while they’re doing their job,
they can actually get trained.
– The RealWear device has
a ton of capabilities,
way more than just taking photos.
I see this technology as being something
that will be around for years to come.
– Workin’ at Texmark, it’s a
great place, real family-oriented.
I got three kids at home,
I wanna get home safe,
I wanna make sure everything’s there,
I can provide for them every day.
– The Texmark story is about people
and we see the RealWear device as another
tool to help our employees
to navigate home safely.
