Virtek Vision made enhancements to its Iris 3D laser projection system for accelerating the manufacture of welded assemblies and components. Using a standard CAD file (no projection files required), the software identifies the part geometry (mounting brackets, studs, bushings, etc.), determines each part’s exact position in 3-D space and projects high-visibility laser lines to direct workers in the placement of each part on the assembly, including drill locations, punch locations, fixture placement and precise assembly positions. The software achieves accuracy of ±0.015 in. for most applications, and the interface is simple and intuitive with little to no training required.
