1st Horizon Surveying & Engineering Ltd offers a complete measured survey & 3D laser scanning service. They provide expertise for anything from simple reduced level surveys, to detailed laser scans and intelligent 3D modelling.
1st Horizon is an established survey company that specialises in 3D laser scanning. Managing Director, Mr Jim Garside commented, “We are an existing FARO customer using the FARO Laser Scanner Photon 120 and we have worked very closely with FARO Product Management on the development of the new FARO Focus3D. The new scanner is a real leap forward in technology and will allow us to improve our scanning efficiency by it‘s speed, portability and data quality”.
Jim continued, “we are investing heavily in the new FARO Focus3D to meet the growing demands for hiring and scanning services that our customers are demanding”.
Focus3D is a revolutionary, high-performance 3D laser scanner for detailed measurement and documentation with intuitive touch screen control that makes it as easy to operate as a digital camera. It is four times lighter and five times smaller than its predecessor and is the smallest and lightest laser scanner ever built.
Focus3D uses laser technology to produce incredibly detailed three-dimensional images of complex environments and geometries in only a few minutes. The resulting image is an assembly of millions of 3D measurement points in colour which provides an exact digital reproduction of existing conditions.
FARO will be exhibiting at The Infrastructure Show which will be taking place from 18th to 20th October at the NEC in Birmingham. The Infrastructure Show is the new exhibition that unites the civil engineering sector to demonstrate innovative techniques.
Holy cow! American ingenuity is alive, kicking, and awesome. Now you can combine the products of three homegrown tech companies, FARO, Autodesk, and Geomagic to create pretty much whatever you want under your own roof. Watch while Jay scans and reproduces his face!
FARO has successfully combined three tried-and-tested measuring systems in the Track ScanArm. The mobile measuring system is particularly impressive in the measurement of entire vehicles, not least as a result of its efficiency.
The BMW Group relies on the latest, state-of-the-art technologies, in particular in development and production. In this context, the Track ScanArm from FARO, which is used at the plants in Dingolfing and Regensburg (both in Germany), represents an equally clever and mobile measuring system in Geometric Integration measuring technology.
The webinar will consist of a live demonstration of CAM2 Q showing its efficiency in the measurement of parts against a CAD model. The live demonstration will focus on the following elements of the measurement process:
• Importing / viewing of CAD files
• Performing a CAD to part alignment
• Measuring prismatic features
• Measuring points on CAD surfaces
• Performing part dimensioning
• Building a report
It is sometimes necessary to carry out measurements from several positions in order to check larger components. The measuring software used for this task faces the challenge of greater measuring errors. For example, in what is known as the leap-frog process, measuring error accumulates with every repositioning of the digitising system. PolyWorks offers an excellent solution through its flexible device position management in combination with the FaroArm. Using algorithms for bundle adjustment, the errors arising in the leap-frog process are evenly distributed across the individual positions.
The theme for the 2010 AVEVA World Summit – Europe is Engage – Inspire – Deliver. Join the summit to engage with AVEVA and the other delegates; be inspired by the speakers and the technology on show; and work with AVEVA to deliver the greater efficiency and productivity demanded by your business.
The summit provides a collaborative forum to present and discuss strategic business issues facing plant and marine operations. Owner operators and EPCs in the plant industry, as well as marine designers and ship builders are invited to attend this unique opportunity to gain insights from subject experts and interact with colleagues.
Come to our booth 1B.112 in hall 11.1 and discover what’s new in the world of laser scanning. FARO will also demonstrate the new version 4.7 of SCENE which incorporates the new ‘one-click’ Web-Share functionality. The SCENE Web-Share feature allows for easy and secure sharing of scan data via the Internet.
You will also meet our software partners on the stand.
We are happy to welcome you on our booth and we offer you free entry tickets to visit us.
The company belonging to the Hyde Group offer a full ‘turnkey’ service utilizing the state of the art equipment they have invested in. Using the FARO Gage they were able to reduce downtime due to on-machine inspection.
