In-Process Inspection

In the past, machine shop inspection has required the removal of parts from a CNC machine to a temperature controlled inspection area for surface inspection or dimensional inspection of the part. This is time-consuming and expensive. Fortunately, incorporating portable CMMs from FARO® directly into production lines can streamline this process.

The portability of FARO’s 3D metrology tools, like the measuring arm, enables efficient in-line, in-process and on-machine inspections. This delivers consistent, accurate measurements directly on or at the machine producing the parts.

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.
