Assembly Guidance Systems (Chelmsford, Mass.) is featuring its LASERGUIDE Software Development Kit (SDK), which enables composites manufacturers to integrate laser monitoring and control into their automated work cells, such as automated fiber placement (AFP) operations. The SDK is a DLL-based driver with a library of API, thus a work cell’s controller can directly operate the LASERGUIDE projector. Using the SDK, manufacturers can instantly display design data and accurate dimensional references, automatically detect FOD and measure and document critical parameters such as fiber orientation. Assembly Guidance says that in U.S., European and Asian implementations of the SDK, manufacturers have realized a five-fold reduction in projection error, and cycle-time reduction of as much as 80 percent.
