Ensuring measurement is precise
Virtek's laser projection systems make mechanical templates or time-consuming measurement procedures obsolete. The laser projected image is always precise because it is generated from the product’s CAD data.
So intuitive that our user interface actually guides first-time users through the process.
Virtek® Iris™ Spatial Positioning System
Learn how a combination of laser projection technology with 3D vision technology can locate a part in 3D space. Iris quickly locks onto the part’s CAD-specified assembly positions and guides the user through the welded assembly process by projecting a laser outline of each component part.

Customer Success Story: Komatsu
Komatsu was seeking to reduce errors in manufacturing, while at the same time increasing their throughput and efficiency to enable them to meet increased demand. They were using aluminum templates to guide workers in welding brackets, stand-offs and studs on large mining truck frames. These templates were costly to manufacture, design and redesign. Additionally, they were cumbersome, presenting Health and Safety risks, and taking up a lot of space to store. By implementing Virtek’s Iris Spatial Positioning System (SPS), Komatsu eliminated templates and significantly accelerated their assembly process, eliminating human errors and upholding quality because items are built exactly as designed.
Customer Success Story: Weldall
“Before Iris, our inspectors used to spend a lot of time double and triple-checking parts,” said Mike Schoen, operations manager for Weldall. Now, the company performs random checks but no full inspections. “Since we started using it, we haven’t had one location reject, we’ve improved efficiency between 20 and 60 percent, depending on the size and complexity of the part, and it’s been 100 percent accurate,” said Schoen.

Virtek Iris™ 3D with the NEW Vision Positioning System (VPS) significantly advances laser-guided assembly with innovative “FlashAlign” functionality and superior laser-line visibility. Initial alignment is 20X faster and re-alignments are reduced from minutes to seconds – save time, increase workflow all while retaining quality and accuracy.
Industries: Aerospace & Composites
Virtek Iris™ Spatial Positioning System (SPS) locates objects in 3D space and quickly locks onto CAD-specified assembly positions without the need for costly tooling or optical targets. The Iris system is compact and easy-to-use for improved productivity, quality and safety on the shop floor.
Virtek LaserEdge® software with the NEW Laser Projection System (LPS10) is an easy-to-use, three-dimensional laser templating and positioning system. It accurately projects a virtual laser template onto molds and parts to guide operators through the process of part fabrication whether it be ply layup, paint masking, assembly or component location.
The Virtek Laser Template Generator™ (LTG) system projects a template that shows operators the exact location of all important features in each component or assembly. There’s no need to refer to blueprints or the use of a measuring tape, so even the most complicated designs can be built in minutes.
The Virtek® TrussLine® system projects a laser template of the truss to be built onto the work surface, highlighting the position and shape of all truss joints and connector plates. This eliminates the need for measuring, squaring and stringing.
