FARO Laser Templating Technology

Manufacturers that use composites to build their products or parts, e.g., for planes, boats, cars or rotor blades, probably have as one of their primary goals to minimize the size and weight and maximize the strength of what they are producing. One important key factor they need to consider is the timely and accurate location and positioning of composite plies.

When composites were introduced, their unique properties had significant effects on reducing the size, weight and power aspects of major components for Aerospace, Automotive, Space and Shipbuilding industries. Unfortunately, the labor-intensive nature of composites lay-up production certainly did not reduce the manufacturing costs, however, FARO’s Laser Projection technology is helping to change that.

To learn more about how FARO laser templating technology supports the composite industry to streamline assembly and increase production throughput read the full article:

BIM Inspiration Day

‘As part of the recent BIM Show Live conference in Newcastle, _Space Group, the organisers of the event decided to hold a ‘BIM Inspiration Day’ as a pre-event the day before the main conference.

A large range of schools and colleagues were invited to attend, with the aim of showcasing the best tech the AEC industry has to offer in order to promote the sector as an interesting career option and to challenge negative stereotypes of the traditional construction industry.

FARO were invited to present as part of the ‘Digital Surveying’ section of the event and also undertake live demos of our terrestrial and hand held laser scanning solutions, much to the delight of the young people attending!

The event was a great success with some very positive feedback from both attendees and speakers alike!’
