Hand layup Process
Customer Success Story: FireFly Aerospace
By: John R. Courter, Director of Structures
"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!"
Customer Success Story: Embraer
Virtek Vision International ULC & Embraer Executive Jets Partnership
Taking a manual, complex and lengthy process and making it simple and cost-effective with an ROI in less than 6 months.
Embraer Executive Aircraft, Inc., located in Melbourne, Florida increased throughput and improved its paint-masking process by using Virtek Laser Projection Solutions.
“The time savings have been remarkable, our technicians in the paint booth can now layout an aircraft in four hours with two technicians when it used to take 2-3 shifts when working with Mylar templates. Also, the amount of rework has almost been eliminated,” said Scott Groves, Manufacturing Engineer- Paint, Embraer Executive Jets Inc. We are happy to have exceeded expectations with Embraer and wish them continued success in delivering the highest quality aircraft across their fleet.

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 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.
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.
The Virtek® TrussLine® 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.
