  • Five-fold Productivity in Field Surveys, New Possibilities in VR, & Opportunities Overseas - How the FARO Laser Scanner Changed Poporo Plant's Business

    Plant Engineering: Poporo Plant Co., Ltd
    “With the introduction of the FARO Focus3D X 130, our team can now complete the field survey for a plant mechanical room – which is a job that used to take us more than a week with two people on the task – in just one day. This effectively translates to less than one-fifth the effort.”
  • Turning Dreams into Reality, Manufacturing Dream Cars with the FARO Design ScanArm

    Automotive: MOONCRAFT Co., Ltd.
    The team recognized the demand for a prompt reflection of the scanned data and understood that a better, more efficient solution was needed. This was when they went on a year-long search to identify the best laser scanner for their measurement needs, evaluating various camera-type and handheld scanners.
  • Perfect INC. Streamlines its Decade-old Manufacturing Process

    Mechanical Engineering: Perfect INC.
    Since acquiring the ScanArm, Perfect INC. regularly utilizes the device to calibrate and inspect the construction equipment and tools that are manufactured in-house. The ScanArm is now a key component of an important monitoring system at Perfect INC., and is used weekly to detect errors before and after the production stage.
  • Edge 3D Technologies Scans its Way to Success with FARO

    Construction: Edge 3D Technologies
    “People who have had to struggle with creating 3D models without 3D TLS know the amount of hard work, time, and training that’s needed to complete the seemingly straightforward task,” said Mr. D. Hemanth, Technical Head at Edge 3D Technologies.
  • Providing an Accurate Basis for the Comfort and Safety of Car Seats

    Automotive: Chongqing Yanfeng Johnson Controls Automotive Components Co., Ltd.
    Since investing in its first FaroArm in 2003, YFJC has gone on to purchase more units of FaroArm for its other facilities. Today, the company has in total seven sets of FaroArm across the country. Mr. Liu Junliang, Laboratory Director from the Quality Department at YFJC shared, “We have two sets of equipment here in our Chongqing headquarters, and a set each for our factories in Daqing, Nanchang, Harbin, Chengdu, and Dongguan.”
  • Safe Driving Starts at the Source

    Mold Making: Tianjin Nano Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd
    With the FARO Edge, Nano can now simply install the portable CMM next to the components for measurements. This makes the task of acquiring measurement much easier, and significantly improves work productivity.
  • Non-destructive Testing of Metro Tunnels with 3D Laser Scanning

    Surveying: Shanghai Geotechnical Investigations & Design Institute Co., Ltd.
    Furthermore, using the point cloud data and imaging results acquired by the Focus3D X 330, SGIDI was able to build digital representations of any tunnel, to reflect its actual size and texture. This allows metro operators to analyze the current state of their tunnels, and also serves as a powerful tool for ensuring quality control and operational safety.
  • FARO Assists in India's First R&D Project to Modernize Country’s Railway Infrastructure

    Rail: The Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee
    In addition, the range and accuracy levels of the Focus3D also gave the research team confidence that they would reap the type of results they needed. Featuring an extra-long scanning range from 0.6 m up to 330 m, the Focus3D has a distance accuracy of up to 2 mm, which was exceptionally useful for the team’s application, given that they needed to capture minute details for the railway research.
