Faro has released the Faro 3D imager AMP, a high-performance non-contact 3D imaging system that is suitable for applications in quality control, reverse engineering, and rapid manufacturing.

The Faro 3D Imager AMP is capable of collecting millions of points in seconds and achieves high accuracies on parts, assemblies and tools.

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-metre field of view.

The AMP also offers improved measurement of dark and shiny parts that are often missed by optical systems, and with its portable, rugged and thermally stable design, it can be used on the shop floor or the assembly line.

The key to achieving high accuracy is AMP’s advanced technology: Accordion Fringe Interferometry (AFI).

Chuck Pfeffer, director of product management – 3D imaging at Faro, said: ‘AFI uses lasers to generate infinitely focused fringe patterns that are projected onto the part.

‘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.’
