Discover the new series of White Papers from FARO & Autodesk about “Inspection for the Smart Factory”.


This white paper by FARO and Autodesk examines all the constraints and solutions of smart metrology for additive manufacturing in the future factory.

The importance of metrology – the science of measurement – to manufacturing industry is largely underestimated, except by engineers.
Sir Joseph Whitworth, the 19th Century inventor of early measurement standards, said “You can only make something well if you can measure it.


II White Paper: Incorporating Scanning Technology and Robotics 

The second white paper covers Incorporating Scanning Technology and Robotics.

Future smart factories will aim for speed, accuracy, operational flexibility, and the reduction of waste to near-zero carbon operations. “Right first time every time” fabrication of bespoke products in volume is the objective. To achieve this, factories need embedded or in-line metrology.

To deliver embedded metrology, production lines need new hardware including scanning (non-contact) metrology and robot technology.

FARO: bridging the real and digital worlds to build the truly smart factory

With so much talk of the “fourth industrial revolution”, are we losing sight of what an intelligent factory should do for the customer, the supplier and for society? FARO’s Denis Wohlfeld explains how smart factories should work, FARO’s unique role in achieving this, human-robot collaboration and ARENA2036.
