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…

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.”

Case Study: Improving Quality and Production Rates with a Laser Tracker

To accommodate Cincinnati’s measurement volume, traditional tools such as dial indicators and slab-mounted CMMs turned out to be pretty limited in measuring larger parts. This became a significant problem as the measuring option was insufficient for Cincinnati’s needs. To help keep pace with the changing face of manufacturing, Cincinnati invested in a FARO® Vantageᴱ Laser Tracker system. The system improves quality control, reduces waste in production processes, and facilitates their continuous improvement efforts.
