Out with the Red, in with the Blue…

TS Tech specialise in automobile seats and interiors and are always looking for ways to improve their quality and throughput. Recently they came across a tool in blue laser scanning technology which demonstrated the difference between a blue and red laser.

The outcome was that a blue laser has a shorter wavelength than red which gives it the ability to discover smaller detail in an object. “…one of the first things we noticed was we were able to collect so many points and it was so much faster”

Learn more about the benefits of using a blue laser vs a red here.


Manufacturing Dream Cars with the FARO Design ScanArm

Turning Dreams into Reality…

MOONCRAFT CO., LTD. Is that one company that dares to dream and turn those dreams into reality. The FARO Design ScanArm has been able to contribute to this through helping them strengthen their reverse engineering capabilities. “Thankfully, with the Design ScanArm, we can now scan black parts quickly and accurately. We used to take up to two full days to completely scan one car, but we can now finish the same task in one day.”

Virtual Experience created by the FARO Focus


The FARO Focus has recently been part of an incredible ScanLAB project where they have been able to recreate a virtual experience of what it is like leaving your home and beginning your journey to seek asylum. ScanLAB project used the FARO Focus x330 to capture the streets of central Manchester through mounting it to a vehicle and then the captured data was aligned using FARO Scene 6.2.

TracerM provides a solution for accurate assembling

FARO has recently launched the TracerM which accurately projects a 0.5mm wide laser line onto a 2D/3D surface or object to provide a virtual template that enables operators and assemblers to quickly and accurately position components with absolute confidence.

It has always been a challenge when assembling large cumbersome components. In many cases its key that there is a high level of precision when assembling large components. For example, an inaccuracy of just 1mm when assembling two prefabricated elements such as an aircraft’s fuselages could result in massive deviations.

The TracerM provides a precise solution for operators and assemblers in ensuring that there is an improvement in productivity and accuracy.

To further discover how the TracerM can improve the assembling of components, click here or if you would like to book a web demonstration for the TracerM you can request here.

FARO Help Facilitate Virtual Lighthouse

FARO has recently had the opportunity to provide their FARO Freestyle and FARO Focus Laser Scanner in helping to ensure the Trinity Buoy Wharf Lighthouse in London can be cherished for more coming years.

FARO 3D X130 tripod mounted laser scanner was used by SIAD to gather data of the entire exterior and interior of the lighthouse. They then further used the FARO Freestyle to ensure they captured all sides of an object. Together the Freestyle and Focus have been able to contribute to heritage preservation.

“We were delighted to apply our expertise and the use of a FARO 3D X130 tripod- mounted laser and a FARO Freestyle, to the Trinity Buoy Wharf Lighthouse project.”

To discover more on how the Freestyle and Focus have helped in heritage preservation, click here. If you would like to book a web demonstration for the FARO Freestyle and FARO Focus you can request here.
