Better Design Through Measurement: Contact vs. Non-Contact Technologies

Faro Technologies webinarFARO Applications Engineer Ryan Dant explores contact and non-contact measurement technologies, and explains the advantages of each to the design engineer, OEM manufacturer and others. Attendees gain a greater understanding of the advantages and drawbacks for both, and ultimately are able to decide which is best for their unique application. In addition, Ryan:

  • Discusses, in-depth, the process of contact measurement including the types of probing methods – hard-probing and touch-trigger methods
  • Explains laser probing as it relates to articulated arm CMMs; covering point cloud spread, volume, and the effects of color and reflectivity on the target item
  • Details the uses of each type of measurement in different applications, and explain the specific benefits to users
