Regardless of what the logo says and in no matter which country an automobile was assembled, the result is produced by multi-tonne presses marked with a single name: Schuler.
Schuler’s origins stretch back 175 years and with revenue exceeding one billion, Schuler is a global giant among press manufacturers.
The FaroArm Platinum and FARO Vantage Laser Tracker both offer Schuler mobility for measuring as you can set them up quickly and easily, and also portability as they can be brought to the site where your equipment is assembled with minimal effort. For this reason Schuler values these systems highly, and sees great potential for the TrackArm in the future.

HZ FbZ Züttlingen, a manufacturer of pressing tools and plastic injection, was founded in 1968 as a separate specialist department of the long-established August Läpple AG in Heilbronn, Germany.
The highest level of precision is demanded in the manufacture of tools produced by Züttlingen. The molds are milled out of a metal block on huge milling machines and then finished to an accuracy of hundredths of a millimetre. The tools must ultimately be adequate for the extreme precision requirements of the automotive industry.
Andreas Wolf , the 22-year-old self-employed owner of a factory that produces steel products started his own business at the age of 20 and started his operation from his workshop in his parents’ basement garage.
Fairly early, Andreas found that he was inundated with requests from customers for high levels of accuracy, percision and quality. But how could Andreas guarantee this complete quality? By using the FARO Prime of course!
Offering the highest FaroArm accuracy, the Prime is the ideal solution for all your inspection and measurement needs. Andreas is one of many users who is extremely pleased with his choice of portable CMM saying: “The FARO Prime is a great measuring tool, even for complicated components.

What is augmented reality? And why is it such an interesting area for the manufacturing industry?
AR is quite literally enhanced reality, where personal perception of reality is overlaid onto a computer generated virtual reality. It supplements a user’s perception by offering digital information that directly relates to their real perception and allows real-time interaction.
Currently Bertrandt have fully implemented the FaroArm with Metalo Engineer software in order to maximize quality assurance, allowing for real-time interaction with products. Using the FaroArm for augmented reality is merely one example of how flexible the FaroArm is, making it the ideal solution for all your inspection requirements.
