Chassisworks realizes a new realm of possibilities using a FARO ScanArm

Chassisworks Realizes a New Realm of Possibilities using a FARO ScanArm

Chris Alston’s Chassisworks has the largest selection of chassis and suspension parts in the automotive aftermarket industry.

Chassisworks serves performance enthusiasts and racers in the domestic muscle car, drag race, and sport truck markets.

Many of Chassisworks’ measurement projects are OEM vehicle frames and stamped sheet metal unibody structures with non-geometric surfaces and features. This makes accurate measurement extremely difficult using traditional tools.

That is where more advanced, state-of-the-art measurement solutions come in. Chassisworks upgraded to the FaroArm Platinum with the Laser Line Probe.

The mobility of the entire system easily allows for leapfrogging to capture data from a large area into a single point cloud. “We found that not only was our accuracy of measurement improved, but also the detail in the data was astounding,” said Scott Rieger, Engineering Manager at Chassisworks.
