FARO has recently launched the Tracer M Laser Projector. This new solution allows users to reduce the expensive delays associated with the alignment and assembly of large components, help improve process precision, and negate the need for physical templates and hard tooling.
The Tracer M uses Advanced Trajectory Control (ATC) to deliver fast projection. ATC provides superior dynamic accuracy and a rapid refresh rate which minimizes flicker. Photogrammetric targets are used to enable the best fit alignment of the projected image onto the surface or object, thereby allowing the projected image to be consistent with the CAD model.
For larger assemblies and for use in space-constrained areas, multiple Tracer M projectors can be controlled from a single workstation to provide large-scale virtual templates in one coordinate system. The risk of human error and costly scrap during assembly is significantly reduced, in addition, manufacturers are able to avoid the time and expense associated with using large, heavy templates.
Panasonic operates an advanced testing facility that performs precise emission measurement tests across a range of products including TV, IT, video, microwave and medical products. To establish self-regulated quality assurance processes in each group company, Panasonic published Quality Management System Development Guidelines in 2004. Each group company then implemented the Panasonic Quality Management System (P-QMS). P-QMS complement the requirements of the ISO9001 standard with Panasonic’s own quality assurance methods and experience to create a quality management system that aims to deliver the level of quality that the company demands. Panasonic Manufacturing UK’s stringent quality standards, diverse nature and size of the products that are both developed and produced on site, requires the use of a wide range of relatively dedicated measuring instruments……
