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.

Laser Scanning in a 3D Manufacturing World

Our industrial way of life has revolved around giant centralized factories for more than a century now. Huge machines have been churning out mass-produced items on assembly lines since the second industrial revolution and it has become a part of the industrial standard. But what if we could skip this entire process in our own homes or businesses, saving costs, and becoming more efficient with the same or even better quality as it has been done in the most advanced state-of-the-art factories on earth?

We are at the very verge of a digital manufacturing revolution that will change how everything is done and conceived. This has been going on since the late 90’s and it has continued to grow to the point where the technology now allows us to be our own manufacturer. At FARO we are proud to be part of this exciting revolution!

When FARO released the Line Laser Probe ES (Enhanced Scanning), the dreaded task of scanning reflective surfaces became something I look forward to.

On Top of Things: 5 Reasons Why You Should Be Measuring On-machine

No, Marvin Gaye never sang about manufacturing. If there is but one takeaway from the R&B legend’s soulful catalog, it is this: let’s get it on (machine). For too long, many of you have brought heavy part after heavy part to your fixed CMM for inspection, ignoring that a simpler, more accurate and less taxing solution exists. You should be inspecting and measuring in-process or finished parts on (or near, I suppose) the machine tool. Here’s why.
