    Case Study: Firefly

    Hand Layup Process

    Firefly utilizes the most efficient manufacturing techniques. 

    "Firefly is working on the largest liquid-fueled, monocoque composite rocket that's ever been built. We are always looking to utilize the most efficient manufacturing techniques to be successful. Technicians need to be more focused on the next part to lay up, rather than complex software interfaces. 
    Our Virtek system (VPS1 laser projector utilizing IRIS 3D software) allows for highly efficient part layup and complex geometries layup with fewer errors. Virtek is a committed partner in helping Firefly get to 1st flight!"

    Case Study: Kongsberg

    Hand Layup Process

    Norway-based Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace (KDA), a long-time Virtek customer, has been using Virtek’s laser projection systems in production facilities since early 2000. “Our production site in Kongsberg, Norway has multiple laser projection systems that support complex programs with major international customers,” said Lars Kveseth, KDA’s Director Technology, Aerostructures. “Virtek’s solutions have enabled us to surpass our cost and quality targets.” 

    “For example, we are currently using Iris ActiveTrack technology for laser-assisted masking in our surface preparation department and are experiencing significant throughput improvements expected to reduce costs by 20 percent.”

    Our Products

    Virtek Iris™ 3D with the NEW Vision Positioning System (VPS) significantly advances laser-guided assembly with innovative “FlashAlign” functionality and superior laser-line visibility. Initial alignment is 20X faster and re-alignments are reduced from minutes to seconds – save time, increase workflow all while retaining quality and accuracy.

    Virtek IRIS Truss
    The Virtek® IRIS Truss system projects a laser template of the truss to be built onto the work surface, highlighting the position and shape of all truss joints and connector plates. This eliminates the need for measuring, squaring and stringing.

    Virtek Iris™ Spatial Positioning System (SPS) locates objects in 3D space and quickly locks onto CAD-specified assembly positions without the need for costly tooling or optical targets. The Iris system is compact and easy-to-use for improved productivity, quality and safety on the shop floor.

    Virtek LTG
    The Virtek Laser Template Generator™ (LTG) system projects a template that shows operators the exact location of all important features in each component or assembly. There’s no need to refer to blueprints or the use of a measuring tape, so even the most complicated designs can be built in minutes.
    Virtek® LaserQC® is a rapid inspection system that employs lasers to measure the accuracy of two-dimensional parts to tolerances within 0.05mm (0.002 inches).

    Industries:  Sheet Metal Gaskets
    Virtek LaserEdge® software with the NEW Laser Projection System (LPS10) is an easy-to-use, three-dimensional laser templating and positioning system. It accurately projects a virtual laser template onto molds and parts to guide operators through the process of part fabrication whether it be ply layup, paint masking, assembly or component location.
