Misalignments can cause machine downtime and significantly decrease machine performance; however, portable CMMs such as laser trackers and measuring arms can help to mitigate these issues.

The FARO® Laser Tracker is ideal for many tasks such as machine tool alignment, roller and press alignment, jig and fixture alignment or CMM alignment. This accurate and fast method reduces downtime, improves quality and generates a proper trend analysis of distortion and other changes in a machine’s operation.

For smaller scale tasks, such as on-machine alignment, portable CMMs, such as the FaroArm® is an ideal solution to complement the laser tracker work.

  • FARO Laser Tracker Provides High Measurement Accuracy Essential for Assembling Astronomical Telescopes

    Machine Tools: Nishimura Co., Ltd
    90 years has passed since Nishimura manufactured its first domestic telescope in Japan, back in 1926. At the request of various local and international research institutions, the company installs telescopes and observation equipment in locations across the world. It is not unusual for Nishimura’s telescopes to be installed in places such as deserts and highlands, due to the clear air and low humidity conditions that these areas provide.
  • Alf Engineering Enjoys Higher Precision & Efficiency with FARO

    Automotive: Alf Engineering Pvt Ltd
    FaroArm Fusion eliminated Alf Engineering’s concerns for human error and allowed the team to acquire measurements in a much shorter time. The device produces consistent results, regardless of the operator’s skill or experience. Its ability to record data digitally has reduced measurement time and enabled reports to be generated quickly and easily, as there was no longer a need for manual recording of data.
  • Unitech Engineers Skyrockets its Way to Success with FARO

    Aerospace: Unitech Engineers
    The Gage stood out as the winning choice for Unitech because of its versatility. As the precision engineering firm made its first foray into the 3D measurement world, transiting from traditional hand tools like calipers, height gauges, and micrometers, it found that the Gage suited their needs perfectly. A robust device that can withstand the harsh working conditions of the shop floor, the Gage allows users to measure parts and assemblies easily, quickly, and accurately.
