Recent IRIS 3D Software Releases

The newest edition of its Iris 3D software includes new ways to manage operator actions within the workflow and provides Improved usability:  

Process Control: Limits navigation to require each step in the work flow to be completed in sequence
  • Mark Complete: Ability to create a formal record of completion of a step in the work flow
  • Strict Mode: All previous steps must be complete before displaying the next step in the workflow

Work Order Persistence:  When a work order is partially completed and closed, upon opening the work order a second time, the Operator is returned to the same position in the work flow.

Troubleshooting Tools: Reset event broker configuration (RabbitMQ)

Countdown timer: An on-screen countdown timer for use with vacuum bagging during composite fabrication and debulking ply buildups

Eliminate Operator errors with opening work orders and selecting steps within the workflow.

Always open the right work order and project the correct ply.

Open a specified Work Order

  • Close the current opened Work Order
  • Move to Next / Previous (projection) step in workflow
  • Move to a specified (projection) step in the workflow

Simply scan a printed code

  • Simplify barcode / QR code integration with Iris CodeReader
  • Run software, configure & close (remains in taskbar)
  • Print barcode or QR code
  • Supports most Zebra scanners

 

    The newest edition of its Iris 3D software with enhanced API (Application Programming Interface), supports a new level of interactivity, control and access to detailed production data.

    Production Reporting Database
    This enhancement includes a production reporting database. Accessed through the Iris API, the production reporting tools provides instant remote access to current production status or retrieve historical data detailing the completion of each step in any production workflow executed in the past for any system on the floor. Developers working with the API have access to functioning sample code and a web UI documenting each method that even supports live testing of each call. 

    Data Security
    Iris 3D work orders can now be created in a way that allows customers to maintain their version-controlled files in a secure read only repository separate from Iris working directories. This ensures data security for these critical files and allows easier version management.

    Unlock the Powerful Toolset
    Using the Virtek’s Vision Positioning System (VPS) to find and measure a targeted tool anywhere within its field of view and report the position of the tool relative to the vision system.

    Or the ability to spontaneously project any geometric shape onto a surface without any pre-configuration or file setup. 

    NEW REAL-TIME TRACKING SOFTWARE WITH VISION SYSTEM!

    Virtek’s newest software, Iris™ ActiveTrack helps manufacturers complete inspection and assembly tasks effortlessly on moving parts.

    Iris™ ActiveTrack is able to project a stable, accurate laser line directly onto a moving surface, in 3D, to provide operators with the information needed to get the job done more efficiently. Complete inspection and assembly tasks effortlessly on moving parts. 

    Find out more:
     •  How the new IRIS™ ActiveTrack software is used to complete inspection and assembly tasks effortlessly on moving tools.
     •  How to Inspect Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) ply boundary while a tool such as a mandrel is in motion.
     •  How operators can gain more productive time during inspection, component assembly or manual layup processes.
     •  How to overcome shadowing in confined workspaces.
