Large Part Inspection

In many industries such as aerospace, automotive, and heavy equipment manufacturing, large-scale measurements are a common requirement. Given the large scale of various components in each of these industries, consistent, accurate measurements are necessary to maintain design intent and performance; however, taking large-volume measurements can be a cumbersome and slow task.

FARO®’s groundbreaking large volume metrology tools, such as the FARO Laser Tracker streamlines the entire inspection process. Quickly taking precision measurements at any scale, portable metrology solutions provide the highest accuracy with the least amount of user variability, eliminating costly rework and scrap.

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.

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.

From Inspection to Alignment: Nabeya Manufacturing Utilizes FARO Devices for Various Measurements

Aerospace: Nabeya Manufacturing Co. Ltd.
In addition to aircraft components, Nabeya Manufacturing recently expanded its laser measurement services to include inspection of automobile parts and tool jigs, alignment of large-scale energy machinery, and reverse engineering of turbine casings.

3D Measurement Technology in Power Plant Turbine Construction and Inspection

Energy: Toshiba Power Systems Inspection Services Co., Ltd.
Prior to adopting FARO’s 3D measurement devices, the team at TISC relied on manual hand tools (e.g. vernier calipers, micrometers) to carry out their inspection work. As components of the power-generating turbines were manufactured in a range of sizes, the company eventually decided to adopt 3D measurement technology.
