Accuracy is key in almost every aspect of aerospace manufacturing and aircraft assembly and 3D measurement technology is critical to delivering it. FARO’s portable CMMs, including measuring arms and laser trackers, provide dimensional quality control of small and large aircraft parts – on site and at the point of manufacture.

Whether the task is tooling, jig or fixture alignment, part inspection, surface analysis, 3D modeling or as-built documentation for plant layout, FARO’s precision portable CMMs and 3D laser scanners leave absolutely no room for error.

3D Scanning the Past at the Smithsonian

3D scanning is a rapidly advancing technology that maps real-world objects onto 3D computer models. The applications of 3D scanning are numerous, and 3D scanning is seeing increasing adoption for applications such as quality control and assurance. But today, we’re going to step outside the realm of manufacturing to discuss how 3D scanning is used in the world of GLAM: Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums.

Unitech Composites Produces More Parts with Same Staff by Using FaroArm to Streamline Inspection

“The traditional method works, but it’s slow and not very accurate. The FaroArm offers accuracy comparable to fixed CMMs and software that is fully programmable for repetitive measurement so it greatly increases both the speed and accuracy of the inspection process. The result is that we are able to get more parts out the door with the same people while maintaining higher standards of quality.”

Marianna Airmotive Uses a FARO Laser Tracker to Reduce Repair Turnaround Time from Weeks to Days

“The FARO Laser Tracker’s ability to provide real-time measurements directly against the CAD data enables engineers to instantly visualize deviations from the nominal. The Tracker has dramatically reduced the time required to certify large parts, tooling and machinery while also resulting in substantial quality improvements.”

MRO Dedicated to Quality Chooses FARO

“The support that we have received from FARO has been exceptional. From the very beginning, FARO has gone out of their way to answer any question and help solve any situation we have had,” said Brad Heath, AMES’ Director of Component Repair & Overhaul. “I would highly recommend FARO to anyone.”
