Virtek Iris 3D simplifies fitting and accelerates the assembly process by eliminating manual measurement, marking and templates. Virtek’s Iris 3D for welded assembly applications combines laser projection with 3D vision technology to locate a part in 3D space instantaneously. Light up each step in an assembly with laser accurate lines projected directly onto the part surface.

Iris 3D functionality offers new advanced features: CAD visualization and pick n project (PnP).

Iris 3D works directly from CAD. The interface is simple and intuitive so that anyone on the shop floor can use it. Operators require little or no training to start producing parts faster and with a higher accuracy.

Complex welded assemblies made easy

Produce more faster:

  • No need to create files in advance, simply pick a work piece and project the laser template at the weld table!

Easy to use:

  • Visualize a final project before beginning assembly.
  • Assemble complex 3D parts as easily as simple parts.
  • Little to no training required.

Higher quality

  • Remove operator error and replace manual measurements, templates and training with automated laser-guided assembly.

Best in its class! Virtek’s high visibility laser

Provides operators with a brighter, safer laser that delivers superior visibility even in the brightest work environments.

Check out the features and benefits the Virtek Iris 3D solution provides.

FlashAlign

Instant alignment of the part or tool, virtually eliminating set up time.

Auto focus and high visibility: Auto-Focus fiber connected laser source with optional long-range optics. Operators will receive the best laser line quality and superior visibility even in the brightest work environments.

Simplified software interface: Reduced training and fewer operator errors, simplified operation and administration.

Projected cross hair: Automatically project crosshairs to indicate drill locations, punch locations and assembly positions. Crosshairs work on both flat and curved surfaces.

Field replaceable components: Flexibility of onsite repair of multiple components within the system such as laser and cooling fan, helping to reduce cost of ownership.

Focus of attention: Reduces projection flicker on demand by limiting the projection to just the area of interest for increased visibility.
