LAP Laser has introduced the CAD-PRO pattern projection laser that creates virtual templates during setup and alignment of manufacturing processes. The system projects a laser-light template onto the work surface, eliminating the need for drawing, cutting, and transferring physical templates.
With the system, any shape, pattern, or logo created by a CAD program can be traced onto a 2-or 3-d surface in a one-to-one scale. This allows an operator or technician to locate positions for hold-downs, vacuum pods, or materials in a work area quickly.
