Lackland Air Force Base (near San Antonio, Texas) is the most recent base to purchase a VTube-LASER software system with a FARO ScanArm for use in reverse-engineering tubes pulled from planes for replacement. Other bases that also use VTube-LASER are Hill AFB near Salt Lake City, Utah, and Nellis AFB near Las Vegas, Nevada.
The team at Lackland AFB have completed their VTube-LASER training and are fully prepared for reverse-engineering tubes from USAF planes. It was good to see their enthusiastic response to VTube-LASER, especially considering that they had previously been used to working with the legacy MM5000 arm with Supravision software.
Their new VTube-LASER system uses the 2.5 meter FARO Quantum M ScanArm with blue laser scanner on a portable FARO tripod. VTube-LASER can correct their two HMT (Horn Machine Tools) benders with BendPro controls.
