Education

As more companies and organizations adopt portable CMMs and 3D imaging devices to improve efficiencies in manufacturing technology, it also becomes more important to introduce this measurement technology in education and offer students hands-on experience of the very latest 3D measurement technology.

FARO understands that teaching students the concepts and applications of measuring arms, laser trackers and laser scanners will give them a competitive edge when they move on from the classroom to manufacturing industry or scientific research.

Modern-day Sherlock Holmes — Where 3D Scanning Technology Meets Forensic Science

Public Safety: Southern Medical University
Established in 2005, the Center of Forensic Science at Southern Medical University in China is a state-approved, large-scale forensic science institution set up by the Guangdong Province Department of Justice. The center’s Research Institute of Forensic Science Technologies for Traffic Accidents has been using 3D scanning technology in the investigation of traffic accidents, and has established itself as the country’s leading authority through its continuous extensive exploration of the subject matter.

3D Documentation of a ‘Vanishing’ Civilization – FARO Helps Preserve Cultural Relics

Heritage: Cultural Heritage Research Institute of Zhejiang University
Professor Diao Changyu, Assistant to the Director, Cultural Heritage Research Institute of Zhejiang University commented, “For exquisite stone artifacts – such as inscriptions, epitaphs, and especially intricate Buddhist stone statues – we found it necessary to use a scanning device. The FARO ScanArm is able to provide a comprehensive scan in just one scanning cycle, even capturing details in areas that are blocked or inaccessible. Overall, we get very good data consistency and it allows us to achieve a higher level of accuracy, which is impressive. Some stone statues have faint intaglio lines, which are very thin, shallow, and almost invisible to the naked eye. Yet, these show up clearly in the monochrome 3D model obtained by the scans. This is a very important technical means for archeology.”

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.”

Education: Aichi Institute of Technology
“Focus3D was first introduced when my research involved 3D scans of the human face,” recalled Dr. Nakamura. “The Focus3D was selected because it was significantly more affordable than other devices. Since then, the range of scan objects rapidly grew to include our university’s roads and buildings. The point cloud data scanning project of the ESCA underground mall is an extension of this.”
