On 5 June 2018 at 11:00 am EST (5:00 pm CEST), Matthias Lange, Product Manager at LAP, will deliver a free webinar on the topic of Camera-Assisted Laser Projection for Acceleration of Manual Composite Lay-Up, which will give practical and technical insights into camera-assisted laser projection.
The 60-minute webinar, hosted by CompositesWorld, will focus on how to accelerate composite lay-up by using the DTEC-PRO camera system. Attendees will learn how to reduce calibration effort from minutes to seconds and how to reap the benefits of it for their production processes.
Laser projection systems are key components in manual composite manufacturing to increase process efficiency and process reliability, for example in the aviation industry. For precise laser projection used for composite lay-up, proper calibration of the tool is essential. Automatic calibration by camera during operation can reduce setup times significantly. Manufacturing centres that produce small to mid-size composite parts also demand flexible manufacturing concepts. The webinar will demonstrate how LAP’s DTEC-PRO camera system together with CAD-PRO laser positioning systems can support both accelerated composite manufacturing processes and flexible and versatile production concepts in a smart factory.
”I will be giving participants practical demonstration on how they can reduce calibration effort for 3D tools from minutes to seconds," explains Matthias Lange, expert for LAP’s laser projection systems. "The webinar is a chance to experience how to save valuable time, increase reliability and bring more flexibility into composite manufacturing processes.”
