Alignment – Faro 3D Laser Scanner
Misalignments can cause machine downtime and significantly decrease machine performance; however, portable CMMs such as laser trackers and measuring arms can help to mitigate these issues.
The FARO Laser Tracker is ideal for many tasks such as machine tool alignment, roller and press alignment, jig and fixture alignment or CMM alignment. This accurate and fast method reduces downtime, improves quality and generates a proper trend analysis of distortion and other changes in a machine’s operation.
For smaller scale tasks, such as on-machine alignment, portable CMMs, such as the FaroArm is an ideal solution to complement the laser tracker work.
FaroArm Fusion eliminated Alf Engineering’s concerns for human error and allowed the team to acquire measurements in a much shorter time. The device produces consistent results, regardless of the operator’s skill or experience. Its ability to record data digitally has reduced measurement time and enabled reports to be generated quickly and easily, as there was no longer a need for manual recording of data.
The Gage stood out as the winning choice for Unitech because of its versatility. As the precision engineering firm made its first foray into the 3D measurement world, transiting from traditional hand tools like calipers, height gauges, and micrometers, it found that the Gage suited their needs perfectly. A robust device that can withstand the harsh working conditions of the shop floor, the Gage allows users to measure parts and assemblies easily, quickly, and accurately.
Before purchasing FaroArm, Yunding outsourced most of its daily measurement projects to contractors who were already using FaroArm. In consideration of the increase in demands and for cost-saving measurements, Yunding hence decided to purchase its own portable measurement equipment. FaroArm Measurement Arm eventually became Yunding’s ultimate choice, with its remarkable cost performance measurements, and its successful live demonstrations.
