This turnkey package is aided greatly by an advanced FARO ScanArm that uses laser and tactile measurement techniques to obtain detailed and high accurate 3D representations of tubes, enabling precise and rapid reverse-engineering. The resulting programs can then be downloaded to British Airways’ new bending machines within minutes.
The all-inclusive Unison solution is based on a semi-manual bender with CNC control and a fully CNC all-electric model, both machines are used extensively throughout the global aerospace industry and able to support a wide range of MRO activities.
The loss of revenue resulting from the grounding of modern aircraft can be astronomical, making fast-turnaround MRO capabilities vital to economic performance.
Unison’s renowned tube bending capability, together with the multiple advantages gained through FARO’s precise measurement and reverse engineering competence will help meet the long-term challenging needs of this vital repair and maintenance workshop.
Unison’s complete measure/program/manufacture MRO package will enable a quick and cost-effective repair of fluid lines on aircraft by reverse engineering parts and then accurately re-creating them in the workshop.
Under the terms of the order from British Airways, Unison is responsible for all aspects of bending machine integration and associated equipment connectivity. As Unison’s Managing Director, Alan Pickering, points out, “This turnkey solution demands tight integration of hardware and software resources to create a seamless production environment for efficient on-demand manufacture of specialist precision parts.
“As FARO is a global leader within the field of portable, precise measurement and is a trusted Unison ‘partner’, we were delighted to include the company’s advanced ScanArm and software as part of this turnkey package. The synergy between the ScanArm’s excellent reverse-engineering capability and Unison’s advanced tube bending machines, results in the perfect all-inclusive package.”
With versatile contact and non-contact measuring capabilities, the innovative ScanArm is ideal for performing rapid reverse-engineering tasks. In addition the popular FARO instrument can utilise CAD overlays to check geometries against design or CAD comparison and evaluate deviations in surface form, ensuring that all inspected parts are manufactured to exact tolerances.
Unison’s proven expertise within the aerospace sector and FARO’s accurate, reliable ScanArm are both guaranteeing a comprehensive package offering for British Airways.

With 2,800 stores, the DM pharmacy is one of Europe’s largest supermarket retail brands and is continuing to grow by around 10% annually.
In order to allow efficient building management, DM has measured the premises of its 1,350 German stores. To ensure the data was captured efficiently, quickly and accurately, the company opted for a solution using 3D laser scanners.
Complete documentation of the store areas and ancillary rooms enable optimum management of the areas, while shelf planning and modification measures can be arranged efficiently.
With the three-dimensional measurement, the joiners obtained the very latest store data, allowing for new photographic counters to be planned precisely in advance and their individual elements to be fitted accurately.
