US: FARO, the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, and 3D machine vision applications, announces the release of the FARO CAM2 2018 software platform, specifically designed to enable users to realize the highest value and level of performance with all FARO metrology products across the automotive, aerospace, machine tools and metal fabrication industries. CAM2 2018 elevates the end user experience through a seamless integration with FARO portable coordinate measuring machine products, an advanced user interface that streamlines and simplifies most inspection activities and new reporting dashboards that facilitate short cycle, actionable intelligence.
Optimized Value of FARO Hardware
CAM2 2018 is a tightly integrated software platform for the entire FARO measurement product portfolio driven by extensive feedback from both users of previous generations of CAM2 and other third party metrology software platforms. As such, it ensures that our customers are able to uniquely leverage the full range of FARO hardware features/functionality, now and also in the future, through updates for the most current software versions and patches. Additionally, both the software and hardware are supported by the market-leading FARO customer service organization in addition to the extensive online self-help FARO® Knowledge Base.
Improved Quality Control through Repeat Part Management
CAM2 2018 now includes Repeat Part Management (RPM) functionality for easy production implementation and minimum training. This smart tool enables a specific inspection process to be designed once and then repeated and executed by anyone on the factory floor. Accordingly, this ensures resource efficient, consistent oversight and quality control of inspection routines without the need to have highly skilled metrology professionals drive and manage the process.
Accelerated Actionable Insight
CAM2 2018 features integrated web-based dashboard reporting that delivers real-time inspection results and insightful trend analysis in a user-friendly set of adaptable visual reports. The RPM Control Center information can be shared across the organization in real time and accelerate the ability to take immediate corrective action as required.
“As a full service, high accuracy, portable coordinate measuring solution provider, we can provide great value for our customers,” stated Pete Edmonds, Vice President, Factory Metrology. “To that end, we are focusing our platform development to assure that our software enables our customers to realize the full operational potential of their FARO hardware, ranging from small to large volume measurement. CAM2 2018 is a further evolution of our strategic direction to deliver tight alignment of our hardware and software portfolios.”
