The Control Fair will once again take place at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre, May 5-8.
Join us at FARO’s booth (Hall 3, Booth 3404) where we’ll demonstrate a workstation that contains a FARO Edge measuring arm that has been enriched with Augmented Reality software, Metaio Engineer.
The FARO and Metaio systems are perfectly suited for each other, especially in the context of quality control applications in the industrial field.
Different industries, including the automotive and mechanical engineering sectors, can benefit from Augmented Reality. The technology enriches a user’s view of a real assembly part with superimposed 3D computer-aided design (CAD) models to make all the following possible on a see-through device (e.g., tablet PC, head-mounted display, etc.): quick visual comparisons, assembly checks, identify errors, and detect deviations.
The new release of Metaio Engineer provides built-in support for FARO measuring arms. All the necessary features are factory-set and ready to use, from calibration to other functions that support your daily tasks.
These are the basic steps to set up an Augmented Reality system based on the FARO Edge measuring arm:

What is augmented reality? And why is it such an interesting area for the manufacturing industry?
AR is quite literally enhanced reality, where personal perception of reality is overlaid onto a computer generated virtual reality. It supplements a user’s perception by offering digital information that directly relates to their real perception and allows real-time interaction.
Currently Bertrandt have fully implemented the FaroArm with Metalo Engineer software in order to maximize quality assurance, allowing for real-time interaction with products. Using the FaroArm for augmented reality is merely one example of how flexible the FaroArm is, making it the ideal solution for all your inspection requirements.
