Verisurf Software Enhances Faro Arm Measurement Functionality
Verisurf Software for Faro Arms improves performance, capabilities and universal compatibility.
By configuring any new or existing Faro portable CMM with Verisurf 2020 software, customers can realize immediate measurement performance gains.
Verisurf software offers enhanced features for all Faro portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) arms. By configuring new or existing Faro arms with Verisurf 2020 software, users will realize immediate performance gains over standard configured devices, including expanded capabilities, productivity features and universal compatibility with other CMMs in use.
The Verisurf software driving Faro portable arms delivers rapid 3D inspection and reverse engineering capabilities that enable machine shops to increase efficiency, improve part quality and reduce scrap. The integrated solution provides automated in-process inspection right to the shop floor, providing first-article inspection and reporting in minutes.
The company says that one powerful differentiator that sets Verisurf apart from other measurement software is Model-Based Definition (MBD). Verisurf is built on a CAD platform and can open, read and modify virtually any intelligent CAD file, including the ability to edit or add GD&T datums. This ability is important for maintaining digital continuity and supporting downstream applications in today’s manufacturing 4.0 landscape.
In an effort to close the loop in digital manufacturing workflow, Verisurf and Faro says manufacturers can now not only extend a 3D model-based workflow from CAD to CAM to computer-aided inspection, but they can also reverse engineer parts into the 3D model-based process, improving quality, saving time and eliminating drawings. Faro portable CMMs with Verisurf Application Suites are said to offer highly accurate and powerful inspection and reverse engineering toolsets that are easy to learn and operate, using quick three-step workflow processes .
The Verisurf universal compatibility makes Faro devices and all other CMMs across the manufacturing enterprise software independent. By selecting Verisurf as a single open measurement and inspection platform, shops can easily access any CAD file and drive virtually all portable and fixed CMMs, sharing inspection plans, collecting measurement data, creating quality reports or reverse engineering whole parts or features into intelligent 3D CAD models.
This technological innovation has been increasing in popularity as well as multitasking sophistication.
With a unique part program software suite onboard a powerful CNC, one shop has found it’s producing more and better parts much faster on a recently acquired turning center.
From watch parts to exotic medical applications, this shop takes on the world of micromachining.
