CONCRETE PRO

LASER PROJECTION SYSTEM
for the production of concrete prefabs

CONCRETE PRO - FOR PRODUCTION OF PREFABRICATED CONCRETE PARTS

CONCRETE PRO is a laser system for the projection of line segments and outlines on work surfaces and workpieces, e.g. on circulating pallets or objects placed on these. The projected laser lines are based on your technical drawings (CAD data). The outlines are reproduced on the work surface on a one-to-one scale.

With CONCRETE PRO, you can optimise the process sequence and your production quality. In the manufacture of practically all prefabricated concrete parts, you can work faster, more flexibly and more precisely than with mechanical templates, colour plotters or other aids for measuring and positioning. Utilise projection “at the speed of light” instead of time-consuming alignment using straight edges, angles or stops. 

In contrast to plotters, with which you must mark all the operations on the pallet at one time, you can call up and then process projection files on a step-by-step basis using a remote-control unit. Thanks to LAP Multicolour, it is possible to project images in different colours for different or important steps in the process. Or you can project the outline of an object onto the pallet in green and, for verification purposes, project the profile of the positioned element on its upper surface in red. After production of the concrete part, it is no longer necessary to clean the colour marks off the pallet, since the lasers do not leave any traces behind.

  • 3 IN 1
    CONCRETE PRO is a complete package of elements (projector, software, and sevice) designed specifically for the prefabricated concrete market.
  • MORE PRECISION
    For fast placement of items on pallets, this is the most accurate technology currently available.
  • FASTER
    Save working time: on average, you will work 25% faster than with conventional template systems or colour plotters.
  • SIMPLER
    Populating pallets is simpler with the laser; no plans need to be read, and the template is controlled by a remote-control.
  • MORE RELIABLE
    Achieve your quality standards by performing a final check of the populated pallets.
  • MORE COST EFFECTIVE
    In comparison to a colour plotter, CONCRETE PRO costs only about a tenth of the price, so the return on investment is just a few months.

CONCRETE PRO SYSTEM DESIGN

System description

LAP CONCRETE PRO laser projectors are installed above the working area. They can be attached to ceilings and beams in a fixed position, or to pivot arms or rails so that they can move.

An industrial PC controls one or more laser projectors. The projectors depict the outlines individually or simultaneously.

The projection displays the shape or major profile segments on a one-to-one scale in the desired work area. The next item to populate the pallet can be positioned precisely within the projected outline.
In addition to outlines, letters and numbers can also be projected. It is also possible to use user-defined signs and symbols.

CONCRETE PRO FEATURES

MULTICOLOUR

Outlines may be created and projected in three colours, by one or by several projectors. Change of colour is possible between or within shapes. 

BENEFIT: Visual display of groups, remarks, status …

VIEWPORT

One or several areas of the projection may be highlighted. The selection is done at the client screen by mouseover. 

BENEFIT: Better visibility of important areas on request.

LOAD-BALANCING

Projection data is not distributed by position of the projectors, but by load. Projection areas have to
overlap for optimal performance.

BENEFIT: Homogeneous, fastest possible projection.

SPEEDSWITCH

LAP Speedswitch describes the ability to change colours and/or outlines in real-time, with no noticeable latency.
