ATE Aerotech, a company based in East Sussex, specialises in wind tunnel testing. The company’s dynamic system comprises, a series of beams all located inside the wind tunnel. Before a wind tunnel test is undertaken, it is vital to calibrate the positional accuracy of the system’s various movable elements. The advanced FARO Laser Tracker has proven its ability to provide the required, challenging levels of accuracy over long distances. ATE Aerotech has found the tool invaluable and now offers it as part of their systems.
Our recently launched 6DOF Laser Tracker is an upgrade to the existing system that enables easier capture of hard-to-reach features in hard-to-reach locations. This new functionality addresses a wide range of large scale metrology applications across a variety of manufacturing focused industries including automotive, aerospace, construction, heavy equipment and shipbuilding.
FARO will showcase scan-to-BIM solutions at the GEO|Design+BIM 2018 in Amsterdam. The main theme for the event will be “Enabling Tomorrow’s Connected Infrastructure” and to contribute, our Regional Manager David Southam, will present a talk on ‘Is Construction Industry Ready for City Information Modelling?’. Learn about our complete solutions along the building life cycle and don’t miss an opportunity to network.
When: 1-2nd November
Where: Novotel Amsterdam City
To suit the demand for more individualized products, it is becoming more common to reconfigure production facilities. These changes must be implemented efficiently, hence measurement and quality control is an essential part of this change. Today companies are driving measurement into the product development process earlier to ensure that all the product function sensitivities to manufacturing variation are removed in the design stage.
In a week FARO will be exhibiting at the Engineering Design Show! This unmissable event focuses on innovation, inspiration, and insight across the design industry. The programme for two days offers a range of workshops about design systems, product development and prototyping with a selection of conference topics that present perspectives into the future of engineering design.
When: 17-18th October
Where: Ricoh Arena, Coventry
The next generation FARO Laser Trackers have been announced this week. Introducing the 6Probe, a fully integrated hand-held probe for easily probing hidden, hard-to-reach features in hard-to-reach locations combined with FARO Super 6DoF addresses a wide range of large scale metrology applications across a variety of manufacturing focused industries.
Sarginsons Industries, a manufacturer based in Coventry, highlights the importance of investment in business. A purchase of a FARO Quantum 3D scanner is going to help inspect their processes more accurately and allow them to bring the scanner anywhere a check is needed. Currently, four engineers are being trained to use a 3rd party software that the scanner supports.
We are striving to improve the effectiveness of public safety professionals and our new ScanPlan Handheld Floor Mapper is specifically designed to provide a simple and complete solution for the effortless capture of floor plans. The ScanPlan is a fully integrated solution that includes both the lightweight ScanPlan handheld 2D mapper and FARO Zone 2D diagramming software. The wide-angle field of view makes it easy to map around corners, behind doors, and other hard-to-reach areas. Read about the ScanPlan features here:
Our latest version of BuildIT Construction Software gives the power of a single software ecosystem to accelerate projects and minimize waste. New features will enhance the experience of this software. Among many new features, we have added multiple file import support from Autodesk® Revit® and IFC. We’ve improved on saving your data and reducing a risk of losing it through better traceability using the object’s project ID within various software platforms as well as in validation reports. The new BuildIT Construction Software is better than ever, learn more about its features:
Back in August we presented Traceable Construction as a concept that is driving FARO’s vision for the future. Essentially, this ecosystem should interest anyone working within a BIM process as it offers huge benefits. These would include being able to trace back to any step during your workflow that you or your team has made and speed up your work time, easily adjust your work plan allowing for much greater flexibility to spot misalignments with your plan and so much more. Read more in depth about Traceable Construction on page 58 of BIM Today!
Just in two weeks, FARO will be exhibiting at TCT Show in Birmingham! The leading design-to-manufacturing show will present you a variety of industry experts, live demonstrations and exclusive product launches! TCT Show is a perfect opportunity to see our products up close and to ask any questions from our qualified team members.
What to expect? The TCT Conference has global speakers to offer knowledge from all over the world on the topic of 3D technologies. The TCT Introducing Stage will keep you up-to-date with the state-of-the-art across additive manufacturing and 3D printing, inspection, metrology and beyond. Enjoy this event for free!
When: 25-27th September
Where: NEC, Birmingham
