Webinar: Applied GD&T: Inside the Machining World

In metalworking, 3D measurement and verification technology can significantly contribute to product quality and production efficiency for a variety of manufacturing processes.
Examples for such production processes are material solidification (the most common of which is casting); material forming (which includes bulk deformation like forging, and sheet metal deformation like stamping), material joining (such as welding) or material removal.
This webinar will have a closer look at the example of material removal, which includes different methods, such as the use of cutting tools, laser or water jet cutting. More specifically, it will focus on machining, a material removal process utilizing cutting tools.
Quality related questions that need to be answered in machining cover “Was too much or too little material removed?” or “Was material removed in the wrong place?”
The earlier in process and the closer to the production line or machine these questions can be answered, the better this is for product quality and production times – and thus for productivity.
For this, our webinar will explore how to use the FaroArm both as in-process verification and inspection tool, performing quality checks on machined parts at the shop floor or even on the machine itself.

Who Should Attend: Everyone involved in quality assurance in machining applications and interested in learning how to leverage the FaroArm for verification and inspection of machined parts.

Webinar Topics

  • Explore GD&T callouts like true-position and concentricity, and watch how the measuring arm quickly measures them
  • Learn how to perform fast key-feature checks with a measuring arm while parts are still on the machine, without breaking setup
  • See how software/hardware combinations can take first article inspection to the next level with maximum speed and certified, professional, automatic inspection reports



  • Metal fabrication, machine shops with focus on machining
  • All industries that are challenged with implementing GD&T into their design and manufacturing processes for machined parts
