Machine Shop

Machining accurate parts quickly is critical to the success of any job shop. In order to improve efficiencies and turnaround times, many have adopted portable CMMs from FARO, such as laser trackers and measuring arms. These are used to streamline inspection processes, dimensional analysis and 3D modeling of parts such as tooling, improving the overall quality of machined parts. 

Solutions such as the FARO Laser Tracker and FaroArm® can further improve the operation of machine tools and CNC machines by providing in-process and on-machine inspections which significantly increase production efficiencies, saving significant time and money.

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.

Production of Quality Valves — An Indispensable Part of the Ordinary Everyday

Valve: Tomoe Valve Co., Ltd.
Tomoe Valve develops and manufactures various types of butterfly valves that caters to different applications. In the past, the team relied on hand tools like calipers, height gauges, and micrometers to inspect products or product components. This was a tedious and slow process, especially when evaluating the eccentricity of the shaft holes, which, like the shafts that connect the valve elements and handle, are important components of the butterfly valves.

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.

DYMOL Achieves Quick Reverse Engineering of Complex Shapes with a Non-contact Scanner

Metal Working: DYMOL Co., Ltd.
DYMOL was the first company in Ishikawa Prefecture to introduce the FaroArm into its manufacturing process. Prior to that, DYMOL relied on calipers and micrometers to inspect their products. However, demands on the inspection task increased when DYMOL started to work on turbine blades. In order to inspect the airfoil surfaces properly, the team decided to invest in a 3D measurement device.
