Aligned Vision (Chelmsford, Mass., U.S.) has launched its new control software, Align 4.0, an open-platform system that helps accelerate operator value-added tasks and enables Industry 4.0 connectivity for laser projection and automatic inspection processes. A key feature of Align 4.0 is its CAD-like user interface, which the company claims is a first for composites manufacturing and the only graphical interface available for use on smart mobile devices. Aligned Vision says this makes Align 4.0 the only data-delivery and data-collection system for composite layup operators to use at the tool.
New and enhanced features of Align 4.0 include 3D CAD images, a 3D ply viewer window, a PLC interface, a display of non-projected manufacturing operations and a smartview control of display screen to match operator’s view of the tool. In addition, Align 4.0 includes SystemAlign registration, which automatically registers all projectors when the first is registered.
