A Special Message from Faro Technologies Inc.

Portable Measurement for Machine Shops

The Ideal Measurement Solution for any Machine Shop 

Fast-paced machine shops often struggle with the dual challenges of speed and accuracy. Being able to quickly produce accurate parts is crucial to their continued success. Neither producing inaccurate parts nor missing customer deadlines are viable options.

Portable CMMs from FARO allow you to quickly take accurate measurements directly on the shop floor. This not only eliminates the need to remove the in-production part from the floor to take it to a separate measurement room, but it also allows the part to be measured directly on the machine producing it.

The portability and on-machine capabilities of FARO’s portable CMMs provide consistent and accurate measurements directly where you need it. This greatly increases production efficiencies by saving time and money for your business.

FARO Technologies Named Manufacturer of the Year by the Manufacturers Association of Florida

FARO Focus3D Named as a Best New Innovation by Popular Science Magazine

As seen in MMS

3D Scanning Services Highlighted
The QC Group will highlight its 3D scanning services, demonstrating a 9-ft. arm FaroArm CMM from Faro Technologies.

The Costs and Benefits of Horizontal Machining
The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.

More Demanding Than Production
The challenges of prototyping have dramatically increased. This company reinvented itself to specialize in the tight-leadtime process development that prototyping now entails.

Shared Space, Shared ‘Vette
For the first time, Faro Technologies (leader in portable CMMs) and Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology (leader in bridge-type CMMs) are sharing an IMTS booth to demonstrate how manufacturers can benefit from their complementary precision measurement technologies.

Enhanced Software Improves Laser-Scanning Applications
Faro Technologies’ Scene 5.0 point-cloud capture processing software enables Focus3D users to view scans in true stereoscopic 3D.

May 8 Webinar Covers GD&T Basics: Measuring Orientation & Form
Faro addresses the importance of GD&T in a free webinar on Tuesday, May 8 at 2:00 EDT.

Moving Forward in Reverse
This versatile shop leverages portable CMM technology to steadily grow the reverse engineering portion of its business.

Measurement Arm Rapidly Verifies Parts
The Faro Edge from Faro Technologies is a portable measurement arm that enables manufacturers to verify product quality by performing inspections, tool certifications, CAD-to-part analysis, and reverse engineering via hard probing and non-contact laser scanning. 

Faro Celebrates 30 Years With Custom Chopper
Portable measurement and imaging solution supplier Faro Technologies (Lake Mary, Florida) celebrates three decades in business this year.

Faro, Zeiss Offer Network of Solutions
Faro Technologies (Lake Mary, Florida) and Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology (Maple Grove, Minnesota) have announced the launch of the Innovative Solutions Network, a marketing, sales and support collaboration in North America intended to provide customers with a total metrology solution.

Last Glance at IMTS 2010
It would be impossible to cover all of the key exhibitors at IMTS 2010—even if every booth got merely a quick glance. However, the editors of MMS did get glimpses of some interesting technologies exhibited at the show...

Portable CMM Slashes Inspection Time
For very large parts, portable measuring solutions can be more practical than traditional CMMs and gages. One such unit from FARO helped this shop reduce inspection time by 80 percent on a large, cast iron housing.

Faro Offers Technology “Test Drive”
According to Faro, the economic crisis has created a catch-22 for many manufacturers—purchasing new technology requires securing new contracts, but new contracts can’t be secured without purchasing new technology. To help shops deal with this issue, the company has unveiled a new program designed to put its 3D measurement devices on customers’ shop floors without capital expense.

Line Of Measurement Solutions
The Faro gage is said to increase measurement productivity, flexibility and enhance accuracy in virtually any production environment. The FaroArm and Laser ScanArm improve production, quality and reverse engineering processes by rapidly and accurately verifying or scanning parts, the company says. The Laser Tracker helps build products, optimize processes and deliver solutions by measuring quickly, simply and accurately, the company says.

Getting New Business with Big Machines
These shops saved themselves from dependence on the declining automotive sector thanks in part to their commitment to large-scale machining capacity.

Replacing Turning with Grinding
This compressor maker’s custom impeller profiles used to present a sticky machining problem. Now, the parts no longer need the wax that turning used to require.

Portable Measurement Arm Creates 3D Part "Blueprint"

More Than Big Machines
This shop specializes in very large components such as rotor hubs and support bases for wind turbines. Its lineup of large horizontal boring mills can handle parts weighing 40,000 pounds and 12 feet on a side. However, the shop’s success also lies in other manufacturing resources and strategies. These include material handling equipment, customized tooling, special fixtures and wireless, portable measuring systems.

Increased Accuracy And Portability For Measuring Arms
Multi-axis, computer-aided measuring arms offer accuracy comparable to a CMM in a portable design. A new version of such an arm is said to be the first 8-foot measuring arm that can achieve an accuracy of 0.0007 inch.
