REAL-WORLD APPLICATIONS
The FARO Laser Tracker creates ground-breaking efficiencies within many applications throughout a wide range of industries. The Laser Tracker offers improved methods of coordinate measurement and makes entirely new manufacturing methods possible.
Alignment:
  • More accurate and less time-consuming than traditional methods
  • Frequent measurements and proper trending of distortions
  • Real-time measurement confirms tolerances and validates design
Installation:
  • Lay out / level machine foundation
  • Prevent damage during the machine‚Äôs initial run
  • Reduce wear and tear on mechanical parts
Part Inspection:
  • Compare complex geometry, surfaces, and feature positions to nominal data
  • No need to move the part to a fixed inspection tool
  • Reduce production waste and non-conformance costs
Tool Building:
  • Full volumetric accuracy tests (ensures parts are being assembled to the highest standard)
  • Verify dimensional integrity and repeatability of the tool (identify or preempt tool defects)
Manufacturing & Assembly Integration:
  • Obtain critical positioning feedback real-time
  • Set moving parts to nominal coordinates
  • Continuous survey to provide data at specific points while moving dynamically
Reverse Engineering:
  • Acquire high accuracy digital scan data
  • Eliminate the need for hard masters
Field Compensations:

Important process since the accuracy of any measurement system is subject to errors due to environmental changes; three different compensation methods depending on your needs and Laser Tracker model.
