Composites play an important role in wind turbine rotor blade manufacturing. We offer new benefits for your manufacturing process that will lead to cost reductions, higher quality, improved safety measures, and greater efficiencies.
Wind Blade Manufacturing: How to create a smart, connected factory by Plataine & Virtek
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.
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.
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 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.
