Watson Towers ‘Scan’ the market for ‘Quantum’ Leap

Watson Towers ‘Scan’ the market for ‘Quantum’ Leap To enable the efficient completion of a challenging project in a nuclear plant, leading UK engineering and steel service provider, Watson Towers recently purchased a 3.5meter capacity version of FARO’s QuantumE ScanArm, fitted with a FAROBlu Laser Line Probe SD and supported by FARO’s CAM2 metrology software.…

Understanding Portable Measurement Arms

The World Relies on Measurement to Operate.   For hundreds of years this has been accomplished by the tools of the time — hand tools such as calipers and micrometers, which provided basic measurements but struggled with more complex dimensions (like an unusual geometry, organic shapes, etc.). But as advancements in technology accelerated industrial growth…

FARO at the Forefront of Testing New Fabrication Techniques

FARO solutions support MX3D and Autodesk in creating the world’s first fully 3D printed, stainless steel Bridge   MX3D are extending the use of 3D printing to ‘real world’ practical ‘built environment’ uses, through the process of additive manufacturing that uses welding technology, robotic arms and computational design software. FARO have provided support through different…

Quality from the start. Verify parts before full production: First Article Inspection (FAI)

Ensure consistent products in manufacturing with innovative portable metrology solutions

Detailed verification of production results versus original product design before ongoing manufacturing begins is critical to ensure all parts and assemblies are built to the correct specifications.

The use of innovative metrology solutions helps quickly identify issues and avoid serious impacts on your manufacturing processes before full production starts.

3D technology at the Smithsonian

Upon implementing 3D scanning with the FARO Design ScanArm and FARO Focus at The Smithsonian research facilities and documenting their collection, it has become accessible globally and available for study from millions, sometimes billions of points of measurement creating measurable scientific data. The online library lets you explore objects from the Smithsonian library in ways the visitors of the museum simply could not because of the extensive detail from the scans.  Dovile GegeleviciuteMore Posts

Introducing the FARO 8-Axis FaroArm® system and the Design ScanArm 2.5C

This month we introduced you to the FARO 8-Axis FaroArm® system that includes a complete rotational axis and is a natural extension to all FaroArm® products. Driving innovation further, our solution is transparent to the measurement software, enables more effective and faster scanning, requiring a minimum number of scans for a comprehensive scan.  We were also very proud to announce the first arm-based solution to include high resolution,…

Standing the test of time with special reinforcement by modern technology

When it comes to rebuilding historical sites, the traditional ways of rebuilding can have flaws, that is where modern 3D printing technology is able to offer a much better option.   Dating back to 1761, The Great Pagoda was built in the Royal Palaces, enriching the London skyline for curious crowds of tourists. The dragons were removed before roof repairs could take…
