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.
