Laser projection systems are key components in manual composite manufacturing, for example in the aviation industry, to increase process efficiency and process reliability. For precise laser projection during composite lay-up, proper calibration of the tool is essential. Automatic calibration by camera during operation can significantly reduce setup times saving valuable time in production. Manufacturing centers that produce small to mid-size composite parts also demands flexible manufacturing concepts. The webinar will give practical demonstration how a camera system together with a laser positioning system can support both accelerated composite manufacturing processes and flexible and versatile production concepts in a Smart Factory. 

Primary Topics: 
- How laser projection + camera system support composite lay-up on 3D tools 
- How camera assistance speeds up calibration in composite manufacturing 
- In practice: Automatic calibration and further options of IR camera 
- Flexible production processes in a Smart Factory
