Manufacturers that use composites to build their products or parts, e.g., for planes, boats, cars or rotor blades, probably have as one of their primary goals to minimize the size and weight and maximize the strength of what they are producing. One important key factor they need to consider is the timely and accurate location and positioning of composite plies.
When composites were introduced, their unique properties had significant effects on reducing the size, weight and power aspects of major components for Aerospace, Automotive, Space and Shipbuilding industries. Unfortunately, the labor-intensive nature of composites lay-up production certainly did not reduce the manufacturing costs, however, FARO’s Laser Projection technology is helping to change that.
