FARO develops and markets portable CMMs (Coordinate Measuring Machines) and 3D imaging devices to solve dimensional metrology problems. Technology from FARO permits high-precision 3D measurement, imaging and comparison of parts and compound structures within production and quality assurance processes. FARO devices are used for inspecting components and assemblies, production planning, documenting large volume spaces or structures in 3D and more. FARO’s 3D measurement technology allows companies to maximise efficiencies and improve processes.
During this webinar FARO presented the FaroArms range of portable CMMs that allow easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD comparison, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, and more. Anyone, anywhere can now inspect, reverse engineer or perform CAD-to-Part analysis on components, fixtures and assemblies with previously unheard levels of precision.
FARO highlighted how these portable CMMs from FARO simplify the implementation of geometric dimensioning and tolerance as well as provide easy-to-use solutions for CAD-based 3D inspections and nominal comparisons which are extensively used in the automotive sector.
During the webinar of FARO the FARO Edge ScanArm presented together with a Laser Line Probe enabling non-contact measurement for complex parts. It allows the user to scan the surface of a pattern, taking millions of points. The webinar participants had the chance to get a closer look on the software and how the scanned data will be transferred easily and reliably into digital computer models.
