Tool Building & Setup

Tool building and injection moulding within the automotive, aerospace, and shipbuilding industries require a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. FARO’s laser tracker and measuring arm are portable CMMs which can perform full volumetric accuracy tests on tools and moulds to ensure the parts are being manufactured to the highest standard. With these metrology instruments, tool makers can also identify or predict defects by evaluating the dimensional integrity and repeatability of tools and moulds.

FARO: Capturing 0.003-Inch Measurements with a Laser Scanner

Aviation: HIZEAERO Co. Ltd.
The Ti-Foil is an ultrathin titanium film with a thickness of just 0.003 inch (0.076 mm), and this posed a major challenge to the team at Hizeaero, both in terms of production and inspection. Capable of scanning at 560,000 points per second, the LLP captures even the most intricate components in fine detail.
