Inspection/Measurement – Will This Part Clean Up?

By Trevor Murcko

Manufacturers who supply or receive pre-machined manufactured components, including molds, often ask, “Will this part clean up?” Oftentimes, this question of part clean-up can make or break an order, a job or a delivery schedule, and although the respondent can vary from a supplier to the downstream customer or both, the question must […]

FARO Technologies Supports Reverse Engineering Vehicles to Upgrade Armoring

In the today’s world, individuals have more access and available opportunity to high-powered weapons. Military personnel, dignitaries, politicians, power brokers and celebrities are all susceptible to potential damage inflicted. Ground, naval, and air flight modes of transport are all potential targets. As such, the need to more heavily armor existing passenger vehicles (both commercial and military) has greatly increased. In a similar vein, recent availability of advanced materials encourage the opportunity to replace legacy armored plates with lighter weight, stronger replacement armor.

Easy Steps to Standardize an H-Point Program

Working for FARO (specifically in the Detroit area), I noticed that several companies are interested in creating and running a program to successfully check H-points (or Hip Points) on seats. The location of the H-Point allows automotive designers to improve seating comfort predicting where the average occupant sits relative to the top of the car or getting in/out of the car. Most seats are checked with a standardized adjustable dummy (Oscar) designed to represent the most common occupants. […]
