Education

As more companies and organizations adopt portable CMMs and 3D imaging devices to improve efficiencies in manufacturing technology, it also becomes more important to introduce this measurement technology in education and offer students hands-on experience of the very latest 3D measurement technology.

FARO understands that teaching students the concepts and applications of measuring arms, laser trackers and laser scanners will give them a competitive edge when they move on from the classroom to manufacturing industry or scientific research.

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.

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.”

KEK Pursues the Mystery Behind the Birth of the Universe

Scientific/Research: High Energy Accelerator Research Organization, KEK
Using the FARO Laser Tracker, KEK ensures that components of the high-energy accelerator are properly aligned and installed, thereby producing collisions in a precise fashion.

Osaka University Formula Racing Club Grows Through its Involvement in Motor Sports

Education: Osaka University Formula Racing Club (OFRAC)
Now, OFRAC mainly relies on the FaroArm to accurately locate welding positions. Precise measurements are taken when positioning the frames, thereby eliminating the need for hand tools and visual checks.
