The ProDirector 7 – A top class industrial laser projector
- The ProDirector 7 is proven a thousand times over
- A laser positioning aid with inimitable precision
- Simple and ingenious in daily use
- In use worldwide in almost all countries and industry segments
- Dust-tight and robust, perfect for almost any environment
With the ProDirector 7, companies in many segments of industry gain decisive advantages when it comes to working quickly and with the highest precision. The ProDirector 7 projects its green laser beams from a fixed reference point, which can be under the ceiling or on a special construction. In doing so, it achieves a projection field for the laser of up to 80° degrees horizontally and 70° vertically for every direction in the room. Even a subsequent upgrade in your production is thus no problem.

ProDirector 7: Functioning as a 3D laser projector for trade and industry
A computer-controlled laser system with the sophisticated operator software ensures that the ProDirector 7 laser throws measuring points, lines and entire work plans onto the surfaces to be processed. Permanently installed or integrated into a rail system, the size or complexity of the free-forms, welding tables, workpieces, materials or different layers in the composite area no longer play a role. The dust-tight design of the ProDirector 7 proves to be just as reliably robust when working with wood as it is when working with precast concrete parts.
Each work step is predefined, and the execution by the employees can take place without tedious marking out, measuring, matching and rechecking. This not only reduces the working time, but also significantly minimises the error margins. Perfect for CNC applications of all kinds. For extremely large components, such as in the aerospace industry, the ProDirector 7 can also be installed as a compound system so that the entire area can be covered.

The 3D laser projector ProDirector 7 – a solution for many problems
For all these reasons, the laser projectors from SL Laser have made a well-known name for themselves over the last 25 years as precision devices for making work easier, more precise and accelerating many work processes. Whether it is simple line guidance in 2D format for cutting and, for example, concrete shuttering, or the complex alignment of machines and workpieces, the 3D laser projectors from SL Laser are part of it today. Here, the ProDirector 7 clearly stands out both in the range of industries and in sales figures.
Starting with the aerospace industry with its highest precision requirements for metal processing, the 3D laser projector ProDirector 7 can be found in almost every area of industry. Of course, this also applies to specialised crafts such as yacht and boat building and its fibre-reinforced plastics. The cost optimisation and quality increase that can be achieved with the 3D laser projector ProDirector 7 make the investment a wise decision. Don’t leave these competitive advantages to other companies anymore. Play in front with a 3D laser projector for your work processes and contact us!

A perfect operating software for the 3D laser projector
With the experience of SL Laser’s developers, the application of our technology has become easier and easier. Simply transfer the data from your 2D or 3D CAD system to the operating software, which imports all common formats and can even be adapted to the specifics of your company’s own applications if required. The respective work steps can be called up manually or by remote control.
The software is available in a wide variety of versions, which are specialised in 3D composite parts or projection from OEM applications, for example. The clarification and integration of your company’s internal processes into the functioning of the ProDirector 7 and the corresponding software, as well as the introduction to the system and its operation, are fixed components of the comprehensive service package that you acquire from SL Laser for the 3D laser projector ProDirector 7.
ProDirector 7 M as mobile version
We have also specified our ProDirector 7 laser projector for mobile use. A powerful industrial battery ensures hours of trouble-free operation on inaccessible construction sites, on wind turbines in outdoor use or on the yacht without an external power supply. With the ProDirector 7 M laser projector, you are completely independent and can still guarantee fast, clean and highly precise work. Mount the projection laser on the tripod, connect it to the tablet via Bluetooth, calibrate it using reference points and the projection can begin.
It goes without saying that when using the laser projectors from SL Laser, the safety regulations for handling laser beams are taken into account and adhered to. If you have any further questions about ProDirector 7, the application or the software, you can find information in our FAQ, or simply contact us directly.
