Lexington, MA, United States, 2009/11/18 - The FARO arm system will provide Schneider plants in the USA with the versatility of high-speed and high-accuracy portable scanning.
Laser Design Inc., the leading supplier of 3D laser scanners for over 20 years, announced that Schneider Electric recently installed a Laser Design-FARO arm laser scanning system in its Cedar Rapids, Iowa facility. The system will be used for verifying plastic injection mold tooling prior to production runs.
A repeat customer for Laser Design’s high-precision laser scanning systems, Schneider Electric has realized increased productivity and better quality products as a result. “Our relationship with Schneider is ongoing in many of its international facilities,” explained C. Martin Schuster, President and CEO of Laser Design. “Our portable FARO arm system will provide the Schneider Plants in the USA with the versatility of high-speed and high-accuracy portable scanning. It can be moved around to any of the production facilities to provide quick inspection and verification of whatever part is about to be manufactured.” The Laser Design FARO arm laser scanning system reduces Schneider’s inspection time and raises accuracies to improve their “Ready to Run” check-out process significantly.
The portable FARO arm is teamed up with the award-winning Laser Design SLP-500 laser-line scanning probe which is ideal for the complex profile contour scanning typical of plastic injection molded part geometries. The high-speed, high-accuracy, non-contact 3D laser probe captures up to 144,000 points per second. The SLP probe line features digital (ASCII) coordinate output, a visible beam, a Class II rating for safe and easy-to-see operations and a long standoff to prevent crashes during part scanning. Its large measurement range, enhanced specularity performance and automatic adjustments for surface color and finish ensure excellent results time after time. Dual CMOS receptors featuring simultaneous scanning assist with steep sidewall and recessed geometry capture.
