Machine Shop

Machining accurate parts quickly is critical to the success of any job shop. In order to improve efficiencies and turnaround times, many have adopted portable CMMs from FARO, such as laser trackers and measuring arms. These are used to streamline inspection processes, dimensional analysis and 3D modeling of parts such as tooling, improving the overall quality of machined parts. 

Solutions such as the FARO Laser Tracker and FaroArm® can further improve the operation of machine tools and CNC machines by providing in-process and on-machine inspections which significantly increase production efficiencies, saving significant time and money.

Complete Measurement Solution for Consistent Quality Management
Specialist Machine Shop Enjoys New Capabilities & 50% Time-savings

Machine Shop: MRP Engineering Co., Ltd.
The objects that MRP work with typically measure 1 to 4 m in length, and weigh anywhere between 20 kg and 50 tonnes. For assemblies and turn-key projects, measurement distances range from 20 to 30 m. The implicit challenge for the QA team is that the solution they select must be flexible yet accurate enough to handle various types of measurements.

Production of Quality Valves — An Indispensable Part of the Ordinary Everyday

Valve: Tomoe Valve Co., Ltd.
Tomoe Valve now validates its developed components by comparing the contact measurement results obtained with the FaroArm against CAD data. Mr. Yoshii explained, “The software programming module allows us to conveniently measure the same positions in our parts each time. It’s like a flow production.” With the module, any team member can easily figure out where and what to measure, and obtain consistent measurement results.

FARO Supports the Development of Automated Welding Assembly – Welding Specialist Benefits from Portable & Efficient Measurement Solutions

Mechanical Engineering: Sichuan BMT Welding
The quality of a vehicle hinges on the manufacturing accuracy of the BIW. It also has a direct impact on the performance of the vehicle, whether in terms of the vehicle’s safety, aesthetics, air tightness, or noise performance. For these reasons, it is important to improve the welding accuracy and quality of the automotive body through ensuring the accuracy of the welding assembly fixtures, and the optimization, reduction, and control of positioning errors.

FARO Laser Tracker Provides High Measurement Accuracy Essential for Assembling Astronomical Telescopes

Machine Tools: Nishimura Co., Ltd
90 years has passed since Nishimura manufactured its first domestic telescope in Japan, back in 1926. At the request of various local and international research institutions, the company installs telescopes and observation equipment in locations across the world. It is not unusual for Nishimura’s telescopes to be installed in places such as deserts and highlands, due to the clear air and low humidity conditions that these areas provide.
