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 large and small 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.

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.

From Inspection to Alignment: Nabeya Manufacturing Utilizes FARO Devices for Various Measurements

Aerospace: Nabeya Manufacturing Co. Ltd.
In addition to aircraft components, Nabeya Manufacturing recently expanded its laser measurement services to include inspection of automobile parts and tool jigs, alignment of large-scale energy machinery, and reverse engineering of turbine casings.

DYMOL Achieves Quick Reverse Engineering of Complex Shapes with a Non-contact Scanner

Metal Working: DYMOL Co., Ltd.
DYMOL was the first company in Ishikawa Prefecture to introduce the FaroArm into its manufacturing process. Prior to that, DYMOL relied on calipers and micrometers to inspect their products. However, demands on the inspection task increased when DYMOL started to work on turbine blades. In order to inspect the airfoil surfaces properly, the team decided to invest in a 3D measurement device.

Advanced Measurement Technologies Support Research of Precision Instruments

Aerospace: Harbin Institute of Technology
In 2007, in order to address the growing research and curriculum needs, the university decided to purchase a unit of FARO Laser Tracker and a unit of FaroArm for the center after careful evaluation. “We use the FARO Laser Tracker most frequently,” said Mr. Wang Jun, Laboratory Director, HIT Center for Precision Instruments. “It was professionally calibrated according to national standards by an agency in 2013, and it has maintained great precision, working well with no issue over the years.”
