The BIM Industry is preparing for digital accountability. Read an article about traceable construction for designers, contractors, project managers and cost consultants of the future. Supported by a versatile BuildIT Construction software, BIM professionals will be able to continuously compare real-world conditions against CAD model.
Watch a video from Vizrt that perfectly explains how Augmented Reality can be used in broadcasting.
A FARO laser scanner was used to capture a warehouse in 3D and implement it in a virtual studio.
From manufacturers that were the first to print a 3D WAAMpeller, RAMLAB’s vision is to produce repair parts on demand. And it doesn‘t stop with marine applications…
A crucial part of manufacturing rotary motion parts is detecting deformations that occur during the welding process. Laser scanning allows measuring even on shiny surfaces from a distance to compare those measurements to design intent in Autodesk’s 3D measurement and metrology software, PowerInspect. FARO ScanArm enabled RAMLAB to inspect and verify a 3D printed AM propeller. Read the full story:
A new industry standard to prevent rework and additional costs, the TracerSI Laser Projector is a perfect tool to project templates that assemblers can use to align the components efficiently and accurately. The hands free, feature-based alignment increases throughput with one of its kind solution that guides through the entire assembly process.
Zeus Engineering is a Scottish sub-contract precision machining company. For them, the ability to easily generate inspection reports and to clearly document that appropriate checks are performed prior to delivering machined parts to customers has been a key element for final Software selection.
As they became more familiar with the FARO technology, Zeus Engineering quickly realized that it could be used for multiple applications. As an example, the FaroArm and the FARO CAM2 Software are now used to perform in process checks, before final processing. This is very important since raw components can be very expensive, so identifying any errors upstream can dramatically reduce costs.
ATE Aerotech, a company based in East Sussex, specialises in wind tunnel testing. The company’s dynamic system comprises, a series of beams all located inside the wind tunnel. Before a wind tunnel test is undertaken, it is vital to calibrate the positional accuracy of the system’s various movable elements. The advanced FARO Laser Tracker has proven its ability to provide the required, challenging levels of accuracy over long distances. ATE Aerotech has found the tool invaluable and now offers it as part of their systems.
Our recently launched 6DOF Laser Tracker is an upgrade to the existing system that enables easier capture of hard-to-reach features in hard-to-reach locations. This new functionality addresses a wide range of large scale metrology applications across a variety of manufacturing focused industries including automotive, aerospace, construction, heavy equipment and shipbuilding.
FARO will showcase scan-to-BIM solutions at the GEO|Design+BIM 2018 in Amsterdam. The main theme for the event will be “Enabling Tomorrow’s Connected Infrastructure” and to contribute, our Regional Manager David Southam, will present a talk on ‘Is Construction Industry Ready for City Information Modelling?’. Learn about our complete solutions along the building life cycle and don’t miss an opportunity to network.
When: 1-2nd November
Where: Novotel Amsterdam City
To suit the demand for more individualized products, it is becoming more common to reconfigure production facilities. These changes must be implemented efficiently, hence measurement and quality control is an essential part of this change. Today companies are driving measurement into the product development process earlier to ensure that all the product function sensitivities to manufacturing variation are removed in the design stage.
In a week FARO will be exhibiting at the Engineering Design Show! This unmissable event focuses on innovation, inspiration, and insight across the design industry. The programme for two days offers a range of workshops about design systems, product development and prototyping with a selection of conference topics that present perspectives into the future of engineering design.
When: 17-18th October
Where: Ricoh Arena, Coventry
The next generation FARO Laser Trackers have been announced this week. Introducing the 6Probe, a fully integrated hand-held probe for easily probing hidden, hard-to-reach features in hard-to-reach locations combined with FARO Super 6DoF addresses a wide range of large scale metrology applications across a variety of manufacturing focused industries.
