A Faro Laser Scanner has been added to our CMM* capability. The scanner will provide us with a 3D model of the product and is an exciting new addition to our quality equipment as it allows us to gather literally hundreds of thousands of data points using a non-contact laser scanning head. The data collected is accurate to within 80 microns.
The Faro Laser Scanner will enable us to carry out a number of important tasks including:-
– Inspection and analysis of critical tolerances and welded joints.
– Reverse engineer parts and components which have become obsolete or where the original drawings are no longer available.
– Greater accuracy for jig set up.
We have advanced software that allows us to visually or numerically analyse the data and compare the actual product to the 3D CAD model of the component or assembly.
