Faro Technologies has announced the release of its 3D imaging product line, featuring the Faro 3D Imager AMP for quality control, reverse engineering and rapid manufacturing applications.

The Faro 3D Imager AMP is a high-performance non-contact 3D imaging system, which is said to be capable of collecting millions of points in seconds.

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 can be missed by optical systems.

With its portable, thermally stable design, it can be used on the shop floor or the assembly line.

The AMP uses Accordion Fringe Interferometry (AFI) technology.

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

‘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,’ he added.

The Faro 3D Imager AMP will be exhibited at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at McCormick Place in Chicago, from 13-18 September 2010.
