Misalignments can cause machine downtime and significantly decrease machine performance; however, portable CMMs such as laser trackers and measuring arms can help to mitigate these issues.

The FARO® Laser Tracker is ideal for many tasks such as machine tool alignment, roller and press alignment, jig and fixture alignment or CMM alignment. This accurate and fast method reduces downtime, improves quality and generates a proper trend analysis of distortion and other changes in a machine’s operation.

For smaller scale tasks, such as on-machine alignment, portable CMMs, such as the FaroArm® is an ideal solution to complement the laser tracker work.

Bertrem Valve Achieves Seamless Fluid Flow with the Help of the FaroArm

Machine Tool Manufacturing: Bertrem Valves
Since Bertrem’s valves control the flow of fluids, it is imperative that the bolt patterns in each valve bonnet are correctly aligned and sealed in the finished assembly.

Oglethorpe Power Corp. Trims Turbine Upgrade Schedule with the FARO Laser Tracker

Measurement of wicket gate bore alignment is typically a very time-consuming process. The commonly used methods typically require a significant amount of setup time at each wicket gate. In this project, engineers would need to check the alignment of the three bores.
