Nikon Metrology and Magestic Systems, Inc. (MSI) jointly introduce an innovative fabrication solution for increasing production of right-first-time composite parts that harnesses the vast capabilities of both Nikon Metrology’s Laser Radar technology and MSI’s Ply Compensation™ System (PCS™). The benefits of this methodology are twofold: first, manufacturers can overcome the difficult engineering specifications set in place for composite parts; and second, they can achieve success with minimal waste. The synergy between Magestic Systems’ PCS™ and Nikon Metrology’s Laser Radar offers composite part manufacturers a seamless solution – utilizing metrology, ply nesting and laser projection technologies to produce composite parts within engineering tolerances. By combining Laser Radar and PCS™ technologies, manufacturers put in place an automated Metrology Assisted Production process that delivers parts of predictable quality, while rigorously reducing scrap and maintaining accuracy, scalability, and ease of use.
