Machine Calibration

Out of tolerance parts are often the result of a poorly calibrated machine. Quick checks of machine calibration using portable CMMs from FARO, allow operators to perform a full volumetric accuracy test with minimal setup time and quickly identify calibration errors. Part production is optimized and downtime reduced.

Industries such as automotive, aerospace, and shipbuilding, have adopted 3D portable metrology solutions, such as the FARO® Laser Tracker and FaroArm®, for recalibration of machines, machine tools and general fixed CMM calibration.
