FARO Cosmos: The Story of a 22-year-old Businessman

Andreas Wolf_story of a 22-year-old businessman

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. The FaroArm handles better than any other arm that I’ve tried”.

Andreas’ ambition has lead him to beginning his training to become an expert welder, further showing he really is one of Germany’s most astounding entrepreneurs.

Laser Trackers: Precision from the Start

Bischoff + Scheck, a well-known name in motor sport, specialises in building special-purpose vehicles.
Founded in 1997, Bischoff + Scheck is now the biggest name in tailormade transporters for racing teams, mobile medical labs, and off-road vehicles for exhibitions.

In 2007, when given the opportunity to work with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, Bischoff + Scheck jumped at the chance…and who wouldn’t? With Vodafone McLaren Mercedes individual needs in mind, Bischoff + Scheck designed and built a 3-storey building which could be fully dismantled for transportation and re-assembled in 2 days, making it ideal for being set up by the racetrack.

FARO COSMOS: The Schwarz Group

The Schwarz Group has a long tradition as a medium-sized trade business. Founded in 1921, it is now a internationally-renowned manufacturer of containers, equipment and apparatus.

Peter Ammer is responsible for product quality at The Schwarz Group and no part leaves the company’s
grounds without his seal of approval.

Peter’s mission for the highest quality possible for The Schwarz Group’s products naturally led him to needing a reliable measuring device with both accuracy and range. He opted for the FARO Laser Tracker and Ammer swears by this portable all-in-one coordinate measuring device as it lets him easily measure components anywhere in production, such as directly in the milling machine.

Augmented Reality: User Interface of the Future

Augmented Reality_2

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.

Reverse Engineering, It’s Music To Our Ears!

A recent project has attempted to find out why twenty violins from 1730 sound better than others. But why? Well…with the way in which many violins are constructed being the same, it is a puzzle for many manufacturers as to why some of these instruments produce a higher quality sound to their counterparts.

Many factors play a part; most obvious being the shape of the violin. Other issues feature such as the humidity during the assembly, the wood used to manufacture the violin and the actual wood density etc. [Read more ...]

Are Portable CMMs Making GO-NO Gauges a No-Go?

With technology improving at a rapid rate and goods becoming more advanced, the parts required for manufacturing have also become more complex and complicated. This has meant the need for tighter tolerances when carrying out quality checks.

Traditional CMMs.

A traditional style co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) can be used to check a small run of parts and this process is very thorough and creates a large amount of data which can be useful. However, the downside to this method is of course that the parts have to be moved from the shop floor into the lab and this can be very time consuming. Also, using a CMM for high volume inspections can frequently generate bottlenecking caused by a lack of operators for the CMM or time to finish a complete inspection of a large amount of parts.
