Solutions to Ensure Accurate Replacement Parts ProductionWhen a part for an obscure product or piece of machinery wears out, it’s not always easy or even feasible to find its replacement. Maybe it’s no longer in production, lacks an original blueprint or maybe it’s just a prototype. Sometimes traditional tools can’t generate accurate measurements for producing the part, especially one with difficult geometries. That’s when you need 3D laser scanning for reverse engineering or aftermarket parts production.
Scanning the original part allows new 3D models to be created with CAD or mesh software. These digital designs can then be shared and documented for future use. Whether in aerospace, energy, automotive, defense, medicine or shipbuilding, FARO’s 3D scanning solutions offer a fast, affordable path for replacing parts.
The airline relies on FARO technology to measure video protectors and ventilation grilles for 3D printing replacement parts, saving time and raw material.
