Smart Factory Webinar series

The fourth industrial revolution is about digitising the industrial processes in order to increase speed, reduce errors, and save overall costs. As industries are adapting to the Industry 4.0 style and becoming “smarter”, the need for automation is increasing. Production processes are similar across all industries. For example primary processes such as milling, cutting and…

Carefree Integration for Probing and Scanning

A versatile Software that provides scalability, high performance, and ease of use makes the measurement experience seamless.   Tested by the National Institute of Standards (NIST) and German Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), FARO® CAM2 2019 metrology software has been specifically designed to enable users of FARO metrology hardware products to realise the highest level of measurement…

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…

Brodie International are Saving Time and Reducing Scrap

Brodie International specialises in producing high precision meters and valves that are used in the custody transfer of petroleum products. The products produced involve components with complex shapes and assembly making the inspection measurement challenging using traditional tools such as a fixed coordinate measuring machine, calipers, dial indicators and height gages. An example of the…

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.

Whitepaper: A Renovation Study in Four Acts

Inspired by Matthias Plieassning, a Brooklyn, N.Y. artist, Trahan Architects team developed a concept for the swooping, swirling wood-threaded panels to be installed. The installation of the unique design started with a challenge as there were no templates to follow. The CWKA shortly implemented the use of the FARO Focus Laser Scanner and the FARO TracerSI Laser Projector into their workflow. Keller explains, “Documenting existing conditions with a high degree of resolution and tolerance allows us to better manage project risk.”
