Florida, US: FARO Technologies, released a new 3D imaging product line, FARO AMP 3D Imager featuring the FARO AMP. The new product is a high performance non-contact 3D imaging system, capable of collecting millions of points in seconds. According to company, using patented technology, the AMP achieves groundbreaking accuracy on parts, assemblies and tools never before possible.
The AMP is suitable for parts with complex shapes or large, smooth surfaces due to its ability to measure a large surface area in one shot. With the click of a button, it captures the complete, detailed image of the object within its half-meter field of view. The AMP is a tool for applications in quality control, reverse engineering and rapid manufacturing.
Jay Freeland, FARO Chief Executive Officer, said, “The AMP is an advanced 3D imaging solution that allows us to continue helping customers embrace the types of technology that can make their products and processes more efficient.”
With its portable, rugged, and thermally-stable design, the AMP offers improved measurement of dark and shiny parts that are often missed by optical systems.
The key to achieving high accuracy is the AMP’s advanced technology: Accordion Fringe Interferometry (AFI). “AFI uses lasers to generate infinitely focused fringe patterns that are projected onto the part,” said Chuck Pfeffer, FARO Director of Product Management – 3D Imaging. “When the fringes are captured with the AMP’s high resolution camera, a highly accurate point cloud is created, generating a true representation of the object. It is the accuracy of these fringes that sets the AMP apart.”
