Gilbert Engineering, one of the leading vehicle stability and accident reconstruction firms, has extensively tested vehicle safety and the minor modifications that can make certain models safer and less prone to roll. Having spent more than 10 years completing accident reconstructions, founder Micky Gilbert has established himself as an expert in the field, due in part to his commitment to employing cutting-edge technology in order to complete inspections.
This video features a German exhaust supplier for sports cars. It shows how ‘Capristo Exhaust’ first scan the underneath of the car to capture the 3D data which they require for their computer based development process.
They can then perfect the way a sports car sounds.
By utilizing modular tooling fixtures and portable CMMs, manufacturers can eliminate the need for many or all check fixtures in their factories. The solution pays for itself as soon as a check fixture that would normally need to be built, is no longer required. In addition, the modular tooling and portable CMM solution eliminates the need for storage, maintenance and rework costs for check fixtures not currently in use.
FARO will be sponsoring the ISPRS Commission V symposium on Close Range Image Measurement Techniques which will be taking place in Newcastle from 22nd – 24th June 2010.
The 2010 Symposium will have technical sessions to cover all of the Commission V Working Groups and the Inter-commission Working Groups, providing a world class opportunity to share experiences and meet with researchers, academics and industry partners.
TSAsolutions specialises in ultra-modern solutions for the automotive industry. They used to bring most of the heavy and large components and equipment to the testing machines. In contrast, they now take the small and mobile instruments straight to the parts to be measured; as a result they can save on effort, labour costs, expenditure, personnel and transport facilities.
We invite you to join our webinar: Scan Registration – Methods, Tools and Workflows on Thursday 1st July at 02:00PM (GMT).
In this webinar we will present different ways to align scan positions to each other (this is called ‘registration’). Topics like local registration, geo-referencing and automatic target identification will be discussed in detail.
Additionally we will introduce methods to increase the efficiency of the scanning process on-site as well as the registration in the office. This will be linked with explanations on various kinds of reference targets and their pros and cons.
We invite you to join our webinar “FARO Cloud – the most efficient way to evaluate and model billions of 3D points inside AutoCAD” on 15th June. This one hour webinar focuses on the introduction of FARO Cloud 6.0, dealing with the following main content:
– Importing and integrating point cloud data inside the various AutoCAD products to simplify your design and drawing process
– Evaluating point cloud data with all AutoCAD features
– Benefiting from the additional FARO Cloud features
– Utilising AutoCAD 2011’s new point cloud functionality to your advantage
– Viewing examples of FARO Cloud applications
The new version of FARO Scene provides a set of new and very interesting features like 64bit application to eliminate the memory limitations given by a 32bit operation system and improved user interface with better structured menus, tabbed windows and tool boxes.
At E.ON UK’s power engineering services department repair and replacement of turbine blades takes place. By using FARO equipment they have made vast improvements in terms of accuracy, efficiency and measurement speed – which provides substantial benefits to the entire plant.
When a culture wishes to preserve its heritage, its first area of focus is typically the preservation of historical objects and heritage sites that provide a tangible link with the past. Until recently, restoring historical treasures to their original form required guesswork. If an outdoor sculpture suffered weather damage, the lack of a record of its spatial data made its restoration imprecise. But today, preservationists are using 3D laser surveying to gather the precise data of historical treasures to aid in their potential restoration. Laser surveying-also referred to as laser-scanning-is traditionally associated with the engineering and manufacturing industries, where it is used to create new parts and products and troubleshoot existing products to resolve defects. But the same data capture abilities that make 3D laser scanning surveying valuable to engineers and manufacturers also makes it valuable to preservationists.
