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.

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.

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.

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.”
