FARO OneClick – a new concept in automated inspection

SHARE

FAROUS: FARO, the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology and 3D machine vision, announces the availability of the FARO OneClick system exclusively to members of the FARO Early Adopter Program. The Early Adopter program provides its members access to new innovative, solutions before they become broadly available.

OneClick will be exclusively showcased at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) occurring September 10-15 in Chicago, Illinois at the McCormick Place Convention Center in the FARO booth located in the east building, level 3 – quality assurance – booth # 135825.

OneClick offers fast, fully automated, high accuracy point cloud inspection of small and medium-sized parts. It is specifically designed to be a more efficient and a more resource, space and cost-effective alternative to comparable, hard probe and non-contact Coordinate Measurement Machines (CMMs). OneClick includes fully automated programming, AI-driven automation, minimal fixturing, automatic reporting and minimal training to ensure a repeatable, consistent measurement process that is operator independent.

The compact OneClick system includes three harmonized components:

  • A metrology grade non-contact scanner that captures millions of high-resolution 3D coordinate measurements in seconds. The device includes an onboard processor (an industry-first feature unique to FARO) and is mounted on a flexible mechanical arm that enables the scanner to “sweep” apart to maximize coverage during the scanning process
  • A rotating, highly adaptive fixturing table that enables a part to be mounted and rotated in concert with the positioning arm to capture comprehensive part data
  • Fully integrated, intuitive software specifically designed to optimize the OneClick user experience

Flexibility On the Floor

With its small footprint relative to a comparable capacity CMM, OneClick is transportable and easily moved throughout the facilities or to/through a supplier’s facility, wherever inspection is needed. Also, users are able to leverage fast, high-quality inspection capability in just a small area on a table or benchtop.

“With FARO OneClick, we have directly addressed another series of pain points that the industry has articulated since the invention of the 3 axis CMM,” stated Simon Raab, Ph.D., FARO President and CEO. “Specifically, the difficult and complex part programming requiring a highly trained quality inspector, sensitive expensive fixturing and complex probing all have combined to create a bottleneck in the inspection process. OneClick directly accelerates the end-to-end inspection process under a variety of circumstances through automated intelligence, high throughput inspection and subsequently expands the breadth of the personnel who can drive quality in manufacturing.”
