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.”

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.

Greater BIM Applicability with FARO’s 3D Scanning Technology

Survey and Design: SIPPR Engineering Group Co., Ltd.
Within two short years, SIPPR has deployed FARO’s laser scanners extensively in all phases of its 13 industrial and commercial projects. These include earthwork volume calculation, reverse modeling of factories, testing completed buildings, facade engineering, and calculation of construction materials.

FARO: Capturing 0.003-Inch Measurements with a Laser Scanner

Aviation: HIZEAERO Co. Ltd.
The Ti-Foil is an ultrathin titanium film with a thickness of just 0.003 inch (0.076 mm), and this posed a major challenge to the team at Hizeaero, both in terms of production and inspection. Capable of scanning at 560,000 points per second, the LLP captures even the most intricate components in fine detail.
