Machining accurate parts quickly is critical to the success of any job shop. In order to improve efficiencies and turnaround times, many have adopted portable CMMs from FARO®, such as measuring arms and laser trackers. These are used to streamline inspection processes, dimensional analysis, and 3D modeling of parts to improve the overall quality of machined parts.

Solutions such as the FaroArm and FARO Laser Tracker can further improve the operation of machine tools and CNC machines by providing in-process and on-machine inspections which significantly increase production efficiencies, saving significant time and money.

Express Manufacturing Gains Full ROI with the FARO Gage

Express Manufacturing did a trial program called the FARO Technology Test Drive which enabled them to evaluate the equipment in the “real world” situation of their own shop floor. With a minimal investment and no risk, they were able to test the Gage and prove out its ROI before purchase.

“Implementing the FaroArm and Verisurf CAD production and inspection systems has been a very wise move for us,” said Quality Assurance Manager Richard Hansen. “The FaroArm and Verisurf software offers us a total reverse engineering, manufacturing and inspection solution and has given us a new degree of accuracy, consistency, and credibility in the quality of all of our products.”

Hoosier Tank Ensures Efficiency and Growth with the FARO Gage

The accuracy of the FARO Gage allowed Hoosier to decrease their assembly fixture construction time by eliminating several reworks that needed to verify that tanks met specification. The Gage also ensured a PPAP dimensional layout to 4 decimal points with an R&R of 10%. The Gage also allowed Hoosier to conduct an accurate and time saving sampling plan for monitoring dimensions to accurately ensure on-going dimensional success.
