FARO Tracer M Laser Projector for Factory Metrology

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.

3D in the medical industry

140327-science-3d-printed-skull_e8f32032da2f37a65e83ba184442e287

A skull made of Plexiglas based on a 3D scan…science fiction? Not for the surgeons of the University Medical Centre Hospital in Utrecht, who are using Plexiglas to replace the skull of a woman in desperate need.

The rapid development of 3D-scans and printing is not only opening doors for the manufacturing industry but also are causing a real revolution in the medical world.

The extremely detailed images provided by the 3D scanners lend themselves to a wide range of applications, from plastic surgery to the development of tailor-made prostheses and support for medical research.

Meet the All-New FARO Edge ScanArm HD!  

LLP-HD_Automotive

With the power of the new high-definition Laser Line Probe HD 3D scanner and the flexibility of the FARO Edge measuring arm, the FARO Edge ScanArm HD really is the world’s most affordable, high performance contact & non-contact portable measurement system on the market.

The brand new Edge ScanArm HD offers rapid point cloud collection with extreme resolution and high accuracy – all in a compact and easy-to-use system.

The new features of the Edge ScanArm HD allow users to seamlessly scan across diverse surface materials regardless of factors such as contrast, reflectivity or part complexity and without any special coatings or target placement.

In addition, scanning time is reduced and coverage is increased due to the fast frame rate and the extra wide scan stripe . Intricate components can now be captured in fine detail as a result of the 2,000 actual points per scanline and the new blue laser featuring noise reduction technology. In addition, users can dramatically reduce required training time with the new crosshair feature and existing LED Rangefinder functionality, which provides real-time scanning feedback.

LLP-HD_In-use

The Edge ScanArm HD will be available for live product demonstrations at the TCT Show, Birmingham (Stand B24, Hall 3A) – from 30th September to 2nd October 2014 !
