Precision for Aftermarket Parts ProductionWhen a part is no longer made or produced by its original manufacturer and the blueprints don’t exist, laser scanning enables the creation of 3D digital models to facilitate mass production. In some cases, as in the automotive, aerospace and shipbuilding industries, it allows for creating specialized products for small production runs. Additionally, in applications where a new part or accessory is being “invented” and must accurately retrofit onto an existing part or assembly, 3D laser scanning solutions can help.
Contrary to myths, aftermarket parts and products — including engines, suspension kits and performance parts — are often as good or even better than the originals they replace. So, whether you need a reverse-engineering tool for a legacy part or you’re rebuilding a part made from a different material, FARO’s laser scanning hardware and software products get the job done faster and with the most accuracy.
Automotive aftermarket manufacturer AWE Tuning integrates a FARO ScanArm into their design and quality control processes to improve their product launch strategy.
