The right tool for tool building

Tool building and setup require a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.

Meet high manufacturing standards

Meet high manufacturing standards

Tool building and injection molding within the automotive, aerospace, and shipbuilding industries require a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. FARO’s laser trackers and measuring arms are portable CMMs which can perform full volumetric accuracy tests on tools and molds to ensure the parts are being manufactured to the highest standard.

Identify problems early and report

Identify problems early and report

Over time, tools and molds may trend away from their original specifications. With FARO’s 3D metrology instruments, tool makers can identify or predict defects by evaluating the dimensional integrity and repeatability of tools and molds. Reports of the measurement results depict trends in accuracy so that tools and molds can be maintained or repaired as needed.

FARO Edge

FARO ScanArm®

FARO provides a competitive all-in-one metrology solution with the ScanArm

The FARO ScanArm combines all of the advantages of the Quantum line of FaroArms – including the world’s only 8-Axis portable metrology arm solution – with the FAROBlu or Prizm Color hand held laser scanner to deliver unparalleled non-contact measurement capabilities. Unlike other scanning systems, the ScanArm’s hard probe and the Laser Line Probe can digitize interchangeably without having to remove either component. Users can accurately measure prismatic features with the hard probe, then laser scan sections requiring larger volumes of data — all in one simple tool.

  • FAROBlu HD LLP laser technology delivers improved scanning results with higher speed and resolution
  • FAROBlu SD LLP delivers cost-effective standard resolution scanning solution
  • Prizm Color Lase Line Probe scans parts in color, and full, uncompromised measurement resolution
  • 8-Axis ScanArm offers comprehensive solution enabling part to be rotated in real-time to simplify measurement and scanning activities
