INSPECTION & REPORTING
Fragile, complex and free-form surfaces can be captured as a dense and detailed 3D point cloud by the FARO Scan Arm and Laser Scanner, allowing users to perform non-contact, 3D inspections with ease. Non-contact 3D scanning from FARO can digitize features such as flush and gap that are difficult to inspect with contact methods. Laser scanning for 3D documentation can be a faster method of verifying many features and dimensions and it produces a more comprehensive and easier-to-read report. For as-built documentation it is simply the best show in town.
NON-CONTACT 3D LASER SCANNING
Providing a way to generate missing CAD files and update or create as-built documentation, reverse engineering allows users to quickly digitize a part or object and create a fully surfaced CAD model which can then be used to reproduce an item.
Using non-contact 3D laser scanning, FARO’s portable CMM and 3D documentation solutions integrate 3D modelling processes into a single step. FARO’s non-contact measurement solutions are ideal for a multitude of reverse engineering applications including the development of virtual simulations of automotive interiors, rapid prototyping in plastics manufacturing and composite surface inspections in aerospace assembly.
CAD-BASED 3D INSPECTIONS
Portable CMMs from FARO simplify the implementation of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) and provide efficient, easy-to-use solutions for CAD-based 3D inspections and nominal comparisons.
With their versatile contact and non-contact measuring capabilities, tools such as the FaroArm, and FARO ScanArm can utilize CAD overlays to check complex geometry against design or CAD comparison to evaluate deviations in surface form and ensure every part is machined to an exacting tolerance.
