If your shop relies on manual or paper-driven weld quality management activities, then upgrading to laser projection will bring proven model-driven efficiencies to your setup operations. If you are already using laser projection or if you are ready to digitalize both guidance and inspection operations, you’ll gain a great competitive edge and rapid ROI with LASERVISION’s proven technology.
Automatic in-process inspection offers such immense advantages over manual inspection, one might wonder why it hasn’t already been implemented across the manufacturing world. But we get it. As with almost any new technology for the shop floor, any hesitancy probably stems from legitimate concerns about the implementation process. What does it take to develop an… Read more »
Reading time < 4 minutes In-process inspection technologies have advanced considerably over the past decade, with many manufacturers performing inspection with smart cameras, profilometry, automated metrology systems and more. Such advancements are impressive but limited when it comes to large works-in-progress (WIPs). Picking up where these technologies drop off, LASERVISION has been designed specifically for...

Reading time < 4 minutes As composite manufacturing has advanced over the years, it has experienced a striking imbalance in the maturity of digital technologies. Computers have performed design and engineering tasks for decades, while paper plybooks and travelers are still used in many shops to guide composites fabrication. Since our founding in 1988 (when… Read more »
Reading time < 3 minutes As more and more automation is used to manufacture large components, relying on human beings and a set of rudimentary measuring tools to inspect works in progress (WIPs) seems more and more antiquated. More important, manual inspection on automated manufacturing floors now represents the bottleneck of bottlenecks for industries that… Read more »
Reading time < 4 minutes When it’s time to purchase new laser projectors, the choice of which projectors to buy often simply comes down to cost. But that’s where the simple part ends! Though the projectors themselves may look pretty similar from vendor to vendor, their actual value is determined by the answers to three… Read more »

LASERVISION offers a unique set of features to solve your toughest inspection challenges: Detect difficult-to-see attributes on large works-in-progressLASERVISION’s… Read more »
Reading time < 5 minutes Industry 4.0 for composites is attainable in 2023. If your reaction to this statement is skepticism, not only are you not alone; you are probably in the majority of composites industry professionals. This is especially true when it comes to in-process composites quality programs. After all, quality assurance on most… Read more »
Reading time < 4 minutes “Achieving the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) for laser projection” is how Aligned Vision president Scott Blake summarizes what he and the Aligned Vision team heard from you throughout 2022. At trade shows, customer visits and other venues, we listened to what you had to share about your experience… Read more »
Reading time < 4 minutes Anyone who has traversed the qualification process for a new manufacturing technology knows just how lengthy and complex these processes can be. The uninitiated may be surprised to learn that implementing a new technology takes many more steps than they might have anticipated. In reality, qualifying a new manufacturing technology… Read more »
Reading time < 4 minutes “Foreign object debris” (FOD) may not be the term that devotees of the Game of Thrones series would use, but most still remember the Starbucks cup that escaped the cutting room floor and made its way to TV screens across the world in the series finale. As an analogy to… Read more »
Reading time < 3 minutes The benefits of automatic inspection extend well beyond the technology’s lights-out speed and greater accuracy compared to manual inspection. This is because of one obvious difference between the two: automatic inspection technologies like LASERVISION produce data, and lots of it. Manufacturers of large, complex components and subassemblies are quickly leveraging… Read more »
Reading time < 2 minutes Mobile electronic process control has proven to be a highly valuable tool for manufacturers that employ manual processes in their production operations. Many such operations will continue to be performed most efficiently by human operators, because people have better visual and tactile senses and greater mobility than automated systems. Even… Read more »
