FARO Gage: Fast, Easy, Accurate Measurement
Product Announcement from FARO Europe GmbH & Co. KG
The Personal CMM for any Production Environment
End the reliance on expensive and hard-to-use fixed CMMs, improve measurement consistency, generate automatic reports, and reduce inspection times with the FARO Gage. Made specifically to be used by shop floor personnel, the Gage sets up in seconds and allows anyone to measure parts and assemblies easily, quickly, and accurately. Now with Bluetooth cable-free operation, you can inspect and digitize wirelessly up to 30ft. away. Save time and money by replacing cluttered inspection areas with the one tool that can do it all - the FARO Gage.
The Gage comes with CAM2 Gage Software, a solution for measuing basic geometry and building dimensions. It allows you to quickly measure geometric features on your part so that you can easily report the dimensions you need to control. Additionally, once you have measured one complete part, you can then repeat the same measurements on the next part with no additional effort. Add images to your inspection plan and hand over the completed plan to any additional operators.
The Gage operates through inter-changeable probes at the end of the unit that take measurement points on command. These probes can be exchanged with other probes depending on the surface or material being measured. A user simply clicks a button on the end of the Gage to record a point and special encoders compute the exact position of the probe within a three-dimensional space. The point is recorded in the software and the user moves on to take another measurement.
