sequence from the input of customer CAD data all the way through to the transmission of control data to the projectors and the sequence of individual work steps. It also guides the operator step by step through the complete process of component build-up. LAP is the only manufacturer using digital controllers for setting the mirrors. This avoids any internal, system-specific drift. Therefore the projectors distinguish themselves by high accuracy of repetition and stability of projection. Moreover the use of digital technology makes the signal transmission to the electronic control system extremely secure. An innovative feature of the projection solution is that even those contours and shapes for which no CAD data are available can be easily integrated into the system. This is achieved by scanning existing templates point by point and then transmitting the captured coordinates to the Fig. 2: Several projectors operate in computer which combines series performing freely programmable multitasking them into a complete contour functions. (figure 2). To achieve precise 1 : 1 projection, i. e. the right relationship between projector and the projection surface, use is made of reference points (targets) on the work surface. In daily routine automatic functions ensure quick and exact calibration of the projector, preventing operating errors and providing highest precision and reproducibility at all times. The laser projectors are usually mounted under the ceiling or on a supporting structure in a position perpendicular to the work surface. The LAP laser heads are hermetically sealed in order to avoid dirt, such as carbon fibre dust, from entering. Variations in ambient temperature are compensated by an active thermoelectric air conditioning system. This solution guarantees a long service life of the laser modules. Thanks to their compact and light-weight design, the system can be conveniently integrated into existing manufacturing plants. More information About LAP Since 1984 LAP has supplied laser-based systems for highprecision contour projection in industrial and medical applications as well as non-contact measurements of geometric dimensions. LAP systems excel at providing ultraprecise results under harshest operating conditions in industrial production environments. Hundreds of LAP systems are tried and tested every day in most demanding industrial environments. Among the customers of the company, which today employs more than 150 people, are renowned companies such as Airbus, Boeing, Philips, Siemens, BMW and ThyssenKrupp Steel. The LAP staff takes care of the company’s worldwide customers from the headquarters in Lüneburg/Germany and through an international network of branches and technical agencies. a computer with the projection software (figure 3). The computer can be operated as a stand-alone unit or networked with the machine control systems. The projectors are connected with only one cable each. Fig. 3: Mirror galvanometers precisely deflect the laser beam to the correct position. Colour provides safety The output power of the laser is only 5 mW, hence the systems are classified as class 2M lasers. The laser radiation zone only needs be designated by a warning sign, which is a great advantage for users. It is not necessary to mark off the zone, wear safety goggles, or assign a radiation safety officer. The projectors can be equipped with one or two laser sources. This enables the operator to choose between red, green or multicolour (red/green/yellow) projection. This way, it is possible to distinguish individual elements by different colours. While the contours of the components can be shown in, let’s say, green, the direction of the fibres can be shown in red. A projection work station basically comprises the projectors and The laser projectors are usually mounted under the ceiling or on a supporting structure in a position perpendicular to the work surface. Their compact design, low weight and integrated swivelling device make them easy to handle. Several projectors are used for large-size components, with partly overlapping fields of projection. The LAP PRO-SOFT 3D software controls the complete work sequence from the input of customer CAD data all the way through to the transmission of control data to the projector and the sequence of individual work steps.
