With Traditional Methods:
Train staff how to use CMMs
CMMs aren’t the most self-explanatory tools to use, so production can easily be held up if you have to wait for trained staff to be available.
Sink hours into identifying problems with the part
Performing a routine quality inspection, with a CMM or other traditional methods, to identify a potential issue with the part can take several hours, during which the machine has been working nonstop and creating more products with the same issue.
Shut down the machine until the problem can be addressed
Once you identify where the problem is, the entire manufacturing equipment has to be shut down.
Move the die to the CMM for inspection
Many dies weigh as much as a small car and require cranes and forklifts to be moved.
Inspect and manually maneuver the die
Generate or find a program to check the critical dimensions of the die. Sometimes the die also has to be manually shifted or flipped, then realigned.
With FARO 3D Measurement Solutions:
Save time from the get-go
The Quantum Max FaroArm and ScanArm are intuitive and easy to use, so you don’t need to hire expert staff to operate them or invest a lot of money and time into specialized training.
Reduce inspection time by over 50%
With FARO 3D Measurement Solutions, you can inspect a part in minutes identifying the problem faster and significantly reducing scrap.
Minimize downtime and improve profitability
With Inspect the parts and stamping dies with the Quantum Max in a fraction of the time and more easily than other conventional methods, so you can return to business as usual as fast as possible.
Move the Quantum Max to the die
With FARO 3D Measurement Solutions are built to be portable. Save time and space by moving the arm directly to the die for inspection.
Complete the entire Maintenance, Repair and Operations process faster
The flexible design of the Quantum Max makes it easy to inspect and analyze the die quickly and accurately, so you can keep things moving and prevent product delivery delays.
