Virtek Vision, a business of Gerber Technology, is celebrating its 25-year anniversary.
Hal Osthus, President of Virtek, said “We are proud of our legacy of innovation and our service to the aerospace industry. Virtek’s products, including the Virtek LaserEdge laser templating system, have been used to build carbon fibre composite parts for virtually all aerospace programs that use composite technology. And our Virtek LaserQC, which inspects parts in seconds, has become the benchmark for speed and accuracy. Virtek currently holds 33 patents on the use of lasers for part assembly and quality control processes."
Gerber Technology acquired Virtek in 2008. The combination of Virtek’s laser products with Gerber Technology’s product portfolio offers manufacturers a complete suite of automation solutions to address nesting, cutting, cut part identification and kitting as well as projected ply lay-up and quality inspection.
