A single seat of LASERGUIDE software provides functions that would require many seats and setups of software from other laser suppliers. LASERGUIDE software supports unique capabilities that reduce the time, skill and effort required to accurately and efficiently manufacture parts.
LASERGUIDE can read any 3D point data. Existing laser projection files from other systems are easily and automatically converted into LASERGUIDE projection files. Aligned Vision provides custom modifications and configurations when desired.
LaserGuide 3D Laser Templating
Full Multitasking capabilities.
LASERGUIDE's unique Multitasking capability enables one controller to support multiple LASERGUIDE projectors performing multiple jobs at the same time. Each individual projector displays multiple simultaneous jobs. Each job is controlled by an individual remote control.
Lowest cost for hardware and software. The only laser system supporting inspection functions approved by FAA and DoD.
Aligned Vision's LaserVision is setting the new standard in laser templating by combining a camera with the laser to provide a vision system to monitor and verify ply orientation, perform FOD detection and verify ply boundaries. See the article in CompositesWorld.
LASERGUIDE is the easiest to use, most flexible, powerful laser projection system available. Whether it is used in an aerospace or a marine application, for composite layup or fixture location, LASERGUIDE saves time, improves accuracy and provides rapid return on investment. LASERGUIDE systems require fewer projectors, controllers, and operator setup activities than any other laser system available.
Aligned Vision Laser Projection
LASERGUIDE software works with LASERGUIDE and MicroLASERGUIDE projectors, and it is backwards compatible with older generation projectors. The software is able to use standard Virtek ply files without any modification. Aligned Vision still supports EVERY laser projector they have in service.
Aligned Vision's LaserVision laser projector is the standard for all of the AFP/ATL machine manufacturers. With its easy to use and implement Software Development Kit (SDK) the application engineer is provided with a rich set of tools that allows the use of the captured images for many other applications important to the specific application. This standard system tools provides both detection of an projection of ply boundaries, FOD detection and ability to verify fiber orientation.
These tools alone have the potential to reduce operator errors in manual layup applications as well as giving the user the ability to create a video of the full manufacturing process. Coupled with JETCAM'S CrossTrack these two companies can provide unequalled part historization and material tracking. Automating the inspection process saves vast amounts of time and improves throughput.
