Airbus to acquire FARO Laser Trackers for A350 project

  • 11-Jun-2010 04:48 EDT

The FARO Laser Tracker ION units purchased by Airbus feature 0.049-mm volumetric accuracy at 10 m, 110-m diameter range, and a mass as light as 17.7 kg.

FARO Technologies Inc. and Airbus have signed a five-year agreement for FARO to be a key supplier of laser trackers and measurement accessories for the new Airbus A350 project assembly line. This agreement includes 62 FARO Laser Tracker ION units and also covers Airbus' key system providers for fixtures and production systems. This agreement complements the 33 units in operation by Airbus since 2002, which includes the assembly of the A380's main body section (fuselage) in France, Germany, and the U.K. As a result of this agreement, FARO Laser Trackers will be installed in every European Airbus manufacturing facility.
