In addition to standard 2D laser projection capabilities, Z-Laser models and special software are available for 3D laser projections. These models are useful in a variety of applications where projection onto complex 3D physical components is required, such as the layup of composite materials used in the aerospace, automotive, and wind power industries. Often such components are composed of multiple layers of fiberglass and carbon fiber which much be precisely placed and properly oriented in order to ensure the structural integrity of the finished product. Laser projectors help, for example, when displaying first patterns, or patterns for the final positioning of the material.
In aircraft manufacturing, lasers have already been used successfully for material alignment and tool positioning during assembly. In the future, however, more and more components made of composite materials will be used. As a result, supporting the manual laying process of fiber mats (CFK layers) with the aid of laser projectors is becoming increasingly important.
The laser projections provide for precise displays of target positions of the CFK layers on large work spaces. Use of the projection results in shorter set-up times, higher and more consistent quality of workpieces, fewer errors, and savings in material.
