iQlaser : Products Overview
Laser, Laser Tracker
A 3D scanner is a device that analyzes a real-world object or environment
to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (i.e. colour).
The collected data can then be used to construct digital, three dimensional
models useful for a wide variety of applications. These devices are
used extensively by the entertainment industry in the production of
movies and video games.
Other common applications of this technology include industrial design,
orthotics and prosthetics, reverse engineering and prototyping, quality
control/inspection, documentation of cultural artifacts, and "as
built" industrial plants.
The fundamental principle used by photogrammetry is triangulation.
By taking photographs from at least two different locations, so-called
"lines of sight" can be developed from each camera to points on the
object. These lines of sight are mathematically intersected to produce
3-dimensional coordinates of the points of interest. Triangulation is
also the principle used by theodolites for coordinate measurement. If
you are familiar with these instruments, you will find many similarities
(and some differences) between photogrammetry and theodolites. Even
closer to home, triangulation is also the way your two eyes work together
to gauge distance (called depth perception).
- Faro Arms
The FARO Arms high accuracy renders
traditional CMM's, hand tools and other portable inspection equipment
obsolete! Anyone, anywhere can inspect, reverse engineer or perform
CAD-to-Part-analysis on parts, fixtures and assemblies with previously
unheard of precision. When you partner that accuracy with its adaptable
technology and customized 3D measurement software, it is ideal for
forming, moulding, fabricating, casting and assembly facilities
needing based 3D measurements, advanced GD&T or CAD-to-Part inspection.
- Faro Laser Trackers
The Laser Tracker is
a portable contact measurement system that uses laser technology
to accurately measure parts and machinery across a wide range of
industrial applications. It enables manufacturing, engineering and
quality control professionals to measure and align parts, assemblies,
and machinery on-site, in-process, or wherever it is most efficient
and cost-effective. The tracker uses a laser distance meter
and two rotating axes to track the exact position of a mirrored
spherical probe that is guided along the object to be measured.
High accuracy encoders measure the horizontal and vertical angles
while state-of-the-art laser technology determines the distance
from the tracker head to the sphere.
- Faro Gages
The basic idea of the FARO Gage
is to personalise 3D measurement. What does this mean? 3D measurements
in general are performed on CMMs in measurement rooms, these machines
are complex, inflexible and bottle necks for production. Waiting
times and higher production costs are the result.Alternatives
include hand tools and combinations of support fixtures and hand
tools, which allow approximately the same measurements as CMMs.
The reliability and reproducibility of these methods is questionable
as user errors and improper usage are daily occurrences. The FARO
Gage replaces traditional measurement tools and increases measurement
flexibility.Writing reports is one of the most disliked
activities. Omissions and errors in the documentation of measurements
cause reduced reproducibility and traceability of the results and
processes. Using the FARO Gage these issues do not even occur as
1D-, 2D- and 3D-measurements can easily be carried out and reports
can be produced automatically. Productivity is improved following
the reduction in measurement times and automated reporting. The name FARO Gage is based on the applications it serves. Gage
is a replacement for hand tools like callipers, height gauges, micrometers,
etc., bringing all these various tools into one! Even statistical
process control and GD&T are included in the system.
