FARO @ European Portable Metrology Conference 2015

FARO UK invites you to  European Portable Metrology Conference (EPMC) 2015 which is the only event solely dedicated to portable and large volume 3D measurement technology. It is the premier technical conference in Europe dedicated solely to the use of precision dimensional measurement technology for process improvement for manufacturers.

Underpinning the event as always is the key theme of Process Improvement Through Measurement Technology. The event will give you the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in large volume and portable metrology. In particular, topics that will be covered will include:

  • Developments in metrology education
  • Automation of metrology applications in shop floor environments
  • Novel and unusual adaptations and applications of existing metrology technology
  • Developments that will lead to the future of metrology
  • Discussions of the challenges and needs of the dimension metrology community


The events takes place in Manchester from 9 – 11th November 2015. Where we will present our cutting-edge metrology products: the FARO Edge ScanArm HD with new LLP to scan challenging materials with high speed and high-definition data clarity!  The FARO Gage with the barcode scanner  as well as our latest and most accurate FARO Laser Tracker Vantage for large volume measurements. Also the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D and our new handscanner FARO Freestyle3D, the only industrial-grade handheld device allowing to scan almost any kind of surfaces and environments will be shown!

FARO @ Digital Construction Week

Digital construction week is the event series for the entire built environment supply chain throughout design, construction, engineering, management and operation- Whether you’ve been exploring BIM adoption, experimenting with emerging smart technologies or investigating advances in manufacturing materials, you’ll have witnessed the changes taking place in architecture, engineering, construction (AEC) world.

The government BIM mandate has accelerated the digital revolution in our industry, but it doesn’t stop there. BIM is just the beginning of a new era for construction, and Digital Construction Week will not only focus on the realities of BIM for your business today, but also explore the possibilities of the built environment for tomorrow.


FARO UK will be sponsering the drinks reception on the 20th October and will also have a stand (M6a) at the Business design centre in order to showcase the company’s, high speed FARO Focus3D Laser Scanner3D and the recently launched FARO Scanner Freestyle 3D.The Digital Construction will consist of:

FARO @ Advanced Manufacturing Show Success 2015

FARO UK staff reported great interest in, and high levels of sales leads related to the company’s new technologies exhibited at the Advanced Manufacturing Show 2015.

As the UK’s only dedicated market place for global manufacturing technologies, the Advanced Manufacturing Show was the ideal venue for FARO to demonstrate its world-class advanced measurement technologies.

Through visitor demand, FARO’s advanced Edge ScanArm HD was demonstrated throughout the course of the show. The Edge ScanArm HD combines the flexibility and the functionalities of a FARO Edge measuring Arm with the high-definition Laser Line Probe HD, creating a powerful contact/non-contact portable measurement system that is ideal for challenging application requirements.


Also in great demand from customers needing to measure smaller parts were demonstrations of the FARO Gage measuring arm. An industry leader in portable CMMs, this accurate 3D gauge ends users’ reliance on expensive and hard-to-use fixed CMMs. The FARO Gage offers high accuracy levels, improves measurement consistency, reduces inspection time and the ability to generate automatic reports.

FARO UK staff are now busy following-up the large volume of sales leads  received at the exhibition and performing in-house practical demonstrations for potential customers throughout the UK.


FARO UK @ Engineering Testing Show

The Engineering Testing Show 2014 will bring together professional engineers across a wide range of disciplines and industrial sectors who share a professional interest in the practice of engineering testing.

Engineering Testing Show

FARO UK will join the Engineering Testing Show on 28th October 2014 at Derby Roundhouse, Derby

During this event FARO will present its cutting-edge metrology products such the FARO Edge touchscreen computer for basic measurements, the recently launched FARO Laser ScanArm HD with the lightest laser line probe for non-contact measurements and the FARO Gage with barcode scanner.

Quality on Tour 2010 – How portable measurement systems improve quality control

FARO is organising a European series of seminars called ‘Quality on Tour’ this autumn. The aim is to educate the participants on quality control topics. The seminars are carried out in conjunction with universities and measurement experts.

The seminar Quality on Tour consists of two days and features the topics ‘Portable measurement technology, articulated arm Coordinate Measuring Machines and laser scanners’ as well as ‘Measuring large volumes and laser trackers’. During the mornings participants will hear theoretical introductions to measurement systems, how they work and where they can be employed. In the afternoons participants will have the opportunity to test and deepen their newly gained knowledge in workshops.

The Quality on Tour seminars are taking place in October and November in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, France and Italy. The UK event will take place on 16th and 17th November at Warwick University in Coventry.
