Customer Spotlight on Accurate Technologies

Accurate Technologies is a 26-year old company in Canton, Ohio. They specialize in land surveyors, surveying engineers, mapping service, mapping-geographic information systems, and land companies. Accurate Technologies accounts 90% of their work in the Steel Mill Industry, while 5%-10% of their business is in land surveying.

Accurate Technologies President, Rich Carpenter, was looking for a better way to survey and align some large tube/pipe mills and continuous caster. The optical system they had been using has an accuracy of 10 to 15 thousands of an inch. However, they were running into problems including: accuracy, not being able to level one plane to another, time, and speed of operation. They also had to turn away potential business opportunity because the optical system could not handle some of the job specifications.

ThyssenKrupp Steel saves $60K in 4 months with FARO Laser Tracker

It’s not every day you get an invitation to train a new customer who is so dedicated to a successful implementation that they completely immerse themselves in the FaroBDA process for tailored training design. Sometimes customers who have been doing things a certain way for a very long time lose sight of the fact that it has taken significant effort  for that process to fully evolve. They don’t always realize that as operators adapt to new hardware, techniques, and processes, there is a reduction in productivity until the users become comfortable. ThyssenKrupp Steel America was prepared for the inevitable learning curve and utilized the FaroBDA process to prioritize proper implementation and training.
