The FaroArm is a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) that allows manufacturers easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD comparison, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, and more. The all-new FARO Edge is the most advanced, state-of-the-art FaroArm ever produced.

 

With the ScanArm, the addition of the FARO Laser Line Probe to the FaroArm adds unparalleled non-contact 3D scanning capabilities for detailed measurement of surface form, making the ScanArm the perfect combination of a contact and non-contact portable CMM.

 

Common applications of the FaroArm

 

Industries such as aerospace, automotive, metal fabrication and tool & die manufacturing use the FaroArm for dimensional analysis and quality control in diverse applications such as machine alignment, rapid prototyping, first article inspection, part verification and reverse engineering

 

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-con tact measuring capabilities, tools such as the FaroArm, FARO ScanArm and FARO Laser Tracker 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.

 

Machined parts come in a diverse range of shapes and sizes, and flexible 3D metrology tools for part inspection and dimensional analysis are required to verify their accuracy and quality.

 

Many machine shops are now equipped with portable CMMs from FARO, such as measuring arms and laser trackers. These meet a variety of dimensional measurement needs, such as on-machine and in-line inspection and CAD comparison, to ensure proper tolerances are achieved.

 

In the past, machine shop inspection has required the removal of parts from a CNC machine to a temperature controlled inspection area for surface inspection or dimensional inspection of the part. This is time-consuming and expensive. Fortunately, incorporating portable CMMs from FARO directly into production lines can streamline this process. 
 
The portability of FARO’s 3D metrology tools, like the measuring arm, enables efficient in-line, in-process and on-machine inspections. This delivers consistent, accurate measurements directly on or at the machine producing the parts.

 

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 scanningFARO’s portable CMM and 3D documentation solutions integrate 3D modeling 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.

 

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
