FARO will be exhibiting at the MIDEST Show which will be taking place from 2nd to 5th November at the Exhibition Centre in Villepinte (near Paris). The MIDESt fair is the world’s largest show exclusively dedicated to industrial subcontracting and face to face meetings. FARO will display its whole range of 3D measuring systems, including the whole new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D.
BMW Group acquired FARO Focus3D and will use it for the adjustment of the real geometry of forming tools with engineering data. The purpose is to avoid collisions in the production process.
ThyssenKrupp Drauz Nothelfer GmbH based in Wadern-Lockweiler (Germany) bought as one of the first companies the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D. The scanner will be used in the digital factory sector and to digitalise production lines in the automotive sector.
Rainer Haupenthal, teamleader at BIW Service explains, ”The FARO Focus3D is the first choice for us and convinced us due to its cost/performance ratio: excellent quality for a reasonable price. No other supplier on the market offers this performance at such a price.“
With the opening of the Intergeo 2010 we launched yesterday the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D which is five times smaller, four times lighter than its predecessor and available at a very affordable price. [Read more …]
1st Horizon Surveying & Engineering Ltd offers a complete measured survey & 3D laser scanning service. They provide expertise for anything from simple reduced level surveys, to detailed laser scans and intelligent 3D modelling.
1st Horizon is an established survey company that specialises in 3D laser scanning. Managing Director, Mr Jim Garside commented, “We are an existing FARO customer using the FARO Laser Scanner Photon 120 and we have worked very closely with FARO Product Management on the development of the new FARO Focus3D. The new scanner is a real leap forward in technology and will allow us to improve our scanning efficiency by it‘s speed, portability and data quality”.
Jim continued, “we are investing heavily in the new FARO Focus3D to meet the growing demands for hiring and scanning services that our customers are demanding”.
Focus3D is a revolutionary, high-performance 3D laser scanner for detailed measurement and documentation with intuitive touch screen control that makes it as easy to operate as a digital camera. It is four times lighter and five times smaller than its predecessor and is the smallest and lightest laser scanner ever built.
Focus3D uses laser technology to produce incredibly detailed three-dimensional images of complex environments and geometries in only a few minutes. The resulting image is an assembly of millions of 3D measurement points in colour which provides an exact digital reproduction of existing conditions.
FARO will be exhibiting at The Infrastructure Show which will be taking place from 18th to 20th October at the NEC in Birmingham. The Infrastructure Show is the new exhibition that unites the civil engineering sector to demonstrate innovative techniques.
Holy cow! American ingenuity is alive, kicking, and awesome. Now you can combine the products of three homegrown tech companies, FARO, Autodesk, and Geomagic to create pretty much whatever you want under your own roof. Watch while Jay scans and reproduces his face!
FARO has successfully combined three tried-and-tested measuring systems in the Track ScanArm. The mobile measuring system is particularly impressive in the measurement of entire vehicles, not least as a result of its efficiency.
The BMW Group relies on the latest, state-of-the-art technologies, in particular in development and production. In this context, the Track ScanArm from FARO, which is used at the plants in Dingolfing and Regensburg (both in Germany), represents an equally clever and mobile measuring system in Geometric Integration measuring technology.
The webinar will consist of a live demonstration of CAM2 Q showing its efficiency in the measurement of parts against a CAD model. The live demonstration will focus on the following elements of the measurement process:
• Importing / viewing of CAD files
• Performing a CAD to part alignment
• Measuring prismatic features
• Measuring points on CAD surfaces
• Performing part dimensioning
• Building a report
