Precise Alignment of Factory EquipmentFor a factory assembling parts of any size, misalignments can be a source of costly waste and inefficiency. In order to manufacture a working product, machines must be calibrated correctly. Fixing alignment mid-production means defective products, downtime, cost overruns and loss of business.
Portable coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) like laser trackers and measuring arms help mitigate these issues for both the tools themselves and the products they create. FARO Vantage Laser Trackers are ideal for many such tasks, including machine tool alignment, roll and press alignment, jig and fixture alignment, and CMM alignment. For smaller-scale tasks such as on-machine alignment, portable CMMs like the FaroArm® perform well. In either case, catching alignment errors before production begins is what it’s all about.
The railway construction equipment manufacturer uses FARO technology to ensure consistency in production.
