The FARO laser tracker ION is a portable coordinate measuring machine used to build products, optimize processes, and deliver solutions by measuring more quickly, simply, and precisely than previously possible. The machine also features a longer measurement range, lighter weight, and, says the company, contains the fastest, most sophisticated distance measuring system: agile absolute distance meter (aADM). Used throughout the automotive plant, the FARO laser tracker ION is suitable for aligning, inspecting, building, installing, and certifying tooling. FARO developed the device while still making it simple and easy to use and maintain. Ensuring that parts are made according to specifications is important for reducing costly scrap and rework, which helps to keep costs down and quality up.
