Assembly Guidance

Assembly Guidance Systems, Inc., located in Chelmsford, MA, is the world leader in industrial laser projection. Our laser projectors are used by aerospace, wind turbine, F1 racing, and automotive companies to manufacture composite parts. Laser projectors produce accurate templates of light from design data. This function streamlines manufacturing by eliminating process steps that consume time and are prone to error. The projectors also save time and money by expediting inspection.

Products

Assembly Guidance - Android Remote System

Wireless System Includes:
  • Wireless access Point (receiver)
  • Android remote and/or tablet (transmitter)

 

Assembly Guidance - Billboards

  • Communications and information are available at the tool location
  • Negates the need for the operator to walk to the computer
  • Text always right side up compared to text projected directly onto a part

 

Assembly Guidance - BuildGuide

  • BUILDGUIDE Centralizes Process Control
  • Eliminates Paper Instruction
  • Improves Build Consistency

Assembly Guidance - Fabrication Management

  • The system automatically imports a design file and generates a laser projection program.
  • An Engineer uses drop-down menus to insert non-layup commands into a single, electronic set of work instructions.
  • Operators advance work instructions via remote control at the tool.
  • The system ensures that debulks and other non-layup tasks occur as scheduled and as specified.
  • Inspections are automatically completed with one touch of the remote.
  • The system automatically populates build reports and generates comprehensive documentation – an as-built digital twin – for full traceability.

 

Assembly Guidance - Integration Systems

  • Reduces large system cycle time by streamlining manual tasks
  • Controls lasers from the same interface as the rest of the system
  • Appropriate specialized displays on the interface for the automated system
  • Costs for stand-alone laser software, control computer and control cabinet
  • Enables system software engineers to optimize laser functions through SDK

 

Assembly Guidance - KitGuide System

  • Saves time dramatically for nest-sorting
  • Works with any nesting software
  • Minimizes human errors in sorting and kitting
  • Optional: wireless printer to simultaneously label the piles
  • Optional: KitGuide with ProjectorVision to verify that the ply being picked-up is the correct ply
  • Triples unloading rate
  • Splits table for unloading, eliminating the need to reach across

 

Assembly Guidance - LASERGUIDE Projectors

  • Next Generation technology provides superior accuracy, persistence, and reliability
  • One projector does the job of many
  • Fast target finding reduces registration time
  • Ideal for long range projection
  • Multitasking: each individual projector displays multiple simultaneous jobs

 

Assembly Guidance - LASERGUIDE Software

A single seat of LASERGUIDE software provides functions that would require many seats and setups of software from other laser suppliers. LASERGUIDE software supports unique capabilities that reduce the time, skill and effort required to accurately and efficiently manufacture parts.

 

Assembly Guidance - LASERVISION

  • Next Generation technology provides superior accuracy, persistence, and reliability
  • One projector does the job of many
  • Fast target finding reduces registration time
  • Ideal for long range projection
  • Multitasking: Each individual projection displays multiple simultaneous jobs

 

Assembly Guidance - MicroLASERGUIDE Projectors

  • Next Generation technology provides superior accuracy, persistence, and reliability
  • One projector does the job of many
  • easy to handle, mount, and relocated by a single operator
  • Ideal for confined area or projection throughout a sphere
  • Multitasking: each individual  projector displays multiple simultaneous jobs

 

Assembly Guidance - Repairable Targets

LASERGUIDE uses 4 to 24 retro-reflective targets on the tool per projector to establish the location of the tool relative to each laser projector. Typical Targets are 0.50" diameter with a 0.1" or 0.2" diameter in retro-reflective spot centered at the top face.

 

Assembly Guidance - Wireless Printers

These portable, belt-mounted printers provide flexibility to the operator by allowing him to use both hands for other tasks. The printers can accommodate to different label sizes and can be used wireless or with a cable. They allow the operator to control the pace while kitting using KitGuide.
