Aligned Vision - Wireless Printers

Product Overview:

These portable, belt-mounted printers provide flexibility to the operator by allowing him to use both hands for other tasks. The printers can accommodate to different label sizes and can be used wireless or with a cable. They allow the operator to control the pace while kitting using KitGuide.

More Product Information

  • BUILDGUIDE Centralizes Process Control
  • Eliminates Paper Instruction
  • Improves Build Consistency
  • Communications and information are available at the tool location
  • Negates the need for the operator to walk to the computer
  • Text always right side up compared to text projected directly onto a part
Billboards provide immediate visual information to the operator on the production floor. The current status of the system is shown. This allows the operator to stay at the tool and not return to the control station for feedback. The information displayed on the billboards includes system messages and ply information from the part file as defined by the creator of the part file.

  • The system automatically imports a design file and generates a laser projection program.
  • An Engineer uses drop-down menus to insert non-layup commands into a single, electronic set of work instructions.
  • Operators advance work instructions via remote control at the tool.
  • The system ensures that debulks and other non-layup tasks occur as scheduled and as specified.
  • Inspections are automatically completed with one touch of the remote.
  • The system automatically populates build reports and generates comprehensive documentation – an as-built digital twin – for full traceability.

LASERGUIDE and LASERVISION use 4 to 24 retroreflective targets on the tool per projector to establish the location of the tool relative to each laser projector. Typical targets are 0.50” diameter with a 0.1” or 0.2” diameter in retro-reflective spot centered at the top face.
Additional targets are available in standard metric units or custom dimensions, as required by the tool.
Targets are field-repairable with the Aligned Vision Target Repair Kit. Target repair is much more costeffective than purchasing replacement targets, providing additional long-term savings.

  • Saves time dramatically for nest-sorting
  • Works with any nesting software
  • Minimizes human errors in sorting and kitting
  • Optional: wireless printer to simultaneously label the piles
  • Optional: KitGuide with ProjectorVision to verify that the ply being picked-up is the correct ply
  • Triples unloading rate
  • Splits table for unloading, eliminating the need to reach across

Wireless System Includes:
  • Wireless access Point (receiver)
  • Android remote and/or tablet (transmitter)
Android remote controls are full-featured remotes that provide full system control from the tool. Beam steering, registration, ply selection, idle and redisplay are all easily controlled with the remote. It also accesses work instructions, ply-book images, the list of plies, pictures of ply outlines, and billboard messages. Operators stay at the tool and work more efficiently. Additional remotes may be easily added to the system at any time. Up to 8 remotes or tablets can be used with one controller.

The LASERGUIDE system is foremost in the industry in terms of range, accuracy, ease of use, and flexibility. Using LASERGUIDE, our Fabrication Management system requires fewer projectors, controllers, and operator setup activities than any other laser system. LASERGUIDE combines the most advanced, durable hardware with unparalleled software capabilities.

LASERVISION extends Aligned Vision’s industry-leading automated laser technology to the full build cycle. The system projects design data to the tool or work surface with the same technology as our proven LASERGUIDE system; and then it automatically captures and analyzes build data, archiving both data and imagery. Complete fabrication management is accomplished by one system.
Aligned Vision achieves this capability by integrating an imaging system with our reliable laser guidance technology. LASERVISION’s imaging component, like its projection component, draws information directly from design data. With LASERVISION’s inspection capabilities, the system can:
  • Auto-aim its imaging system accurately and efficiently
  • Project design data such as edge locations and fiber orientations onto the inspection zone
  • Capture images and conduct automated analysis
  • Direct the operator to any suspect areas
  • Create documentation, including images, of each inspection site
LASERVISION replaces cumbersome, time-consuming manual inspection, reducing inspection time from minutes (or hours) to seconds.
LASERVISION also replaces the human inspector with computer-driven analysis and accuracy.

  • Small form factor
  • IP-67 and industrial temperature rated
  • Improve throughput with ChannelFly, which dynamically finds less congested Wi-Fi channels to use
  • Extended coverage with patented BeamFlex+™ adaptive antenna technology utilizing multi-directional antenna patterns
  • Deploy Wi-Fi in previously unreachable environments

Aligned Vision

Aligned Vision, located in Chelmsford, MA, is the world leader in industrial laser projection. Our laser projectors are used by aerospace, wind turbine, F1 racing, and automotive companies to manufacture composite parts. Laser projectors produce accurate templates of light from design data. This function streamlines manufacturing by eliminating process steps that consume time and are prone to error. The projectors also save time and money by expediting inspection.
