Calibrate robots for accurate production

FARO’s portable 3D measurement solutions like the FARO Laser Tracker and measuring arms can be used in the calibration of robots in manufacturing to ensure drifts are checked and production is consistent and reliable.

Accurate robots for reliability

Accurate robots for reliability

Performing programmed routines on a daily basis, robots have a tendency to drift from their intended paths over time. Recalibrations are necessary to assure robot accuracy, which increases reliability on the production line.
