In a Q&A session, Virtek Vision’s CEO, Dietmar Wennemer reveals how the company’s laser projection solutions helps rapidly improve aerospace part production.
Processes such as cutting, placement and lay-up on mould tooling can add substantial time to the production of carbon composite parts in aerospace applications, particularly when dealing with large structures such as wings.
Virtek’s Iris software platform along with the Vision Positioning System (VPS) enables operators to construct composite parts without the use of bulky physical templates that have to be manually lifted on and off the mould while ply material is fixed in place. The system projects a laser outline of the part or material to easily guide the operator.
Pilatus aircraft turn heads – and not only for their outstanding performance, their special colour schemes are eyecatchers, too! The two new lasers installed in the paint shop in July 2020 greatly facilitate the work performed by our two paint units.
New Implementation Service Offering Available for Composite Manufacturers through RUAG and Virtek Partnership
Virtek Vision, market leader of 3D laser-based vision solutions, is pleased to announce the formation of a global partnership with RUAG, technology partner of the Swiss Armed Forces. RUAG is introducing a new service offering to Aerospace manufacturers using Virtek systems. They will assist users in creating projection files, either from existing CAD data or by digitizing physical parts, for use in laser-guided composite ply application, paint masking, component placement and hundreds of other applications.
