“Technology Divison” Application Spotlight

Cleveland, Ohio is filled with industries of all types but the Forging industry is one of the larger and most applicable for use with FARO products. Over the past 6 months, I have had the opportunity to build a relationship with one of the bigger Forging manufacturers in my territory who have recently added unique processes utilizing the FARO® Laser ScanArm® and Arm technologies.

One of the aspects commonly seen in the Forging industry is the need for tooling in order to manufacture required products. The most common manufacturing practice is to set up a machining center near where products are being manufactured so tooling can be easily modified, reworked, or created new.

Real-Time Data Opens Door to Metrology-Assisted Assembly

“That’s so 27 seconds ago.” My daughter and I recently heard this catch phrase on a television commercial. We had a good laugh because there was some truth to it. We are living in a world of real-time updates, and it does not stop at news and social media. It extends to all facets of our lives.

In many ways, the fast-paced information age of the 21st century has added new demands on our attention, and shortened our attention spans. Did you know the parade scene in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off runs for more than 6 minutes? That final cut would be unheard of in a movie today.
