FARO® ScanArm Case Studies

The following testimonials show how companies have successfully implemented FARO’s solutions into their business. Learn about the challenges they faced, the solutions they chose, as well as the return on investment and efficiencies they achieved.

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.”

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.

Revolutionary New Business Model in the Manufacturing Industry Start-up Develops State-of-the-art EV Sports Car in Kyoto – Japan’s Ancient Capital

Automotive: GLM Co. Ltd.
In 2016, Hizeaero signed a supply contract with Boeing’s Typically, the parts of an EV easily fit on the car chassis – because an EV requires 10% less components compared to a gasoline-powered vehicle, and also because of advances in modularization. As a platform business, GLM develops EVs platforms and provides them to other companies. Since many of its clients still utilize existing products, GLM required those CAD data in its development phase.
