Revolutionary scanning laser camera for guided assembly

August 22, 2018

Spot errors in your assembly with the new FARO® TracerSI Laser Projector — the first solution that both projects and inspects via FARO’s proprietary In-Process Verification (IPV) technology.

Offering high accuracy and time savings, the TracerSI projects CAD-based outlines onto any surface and compares aspects of the objects to the CAD model or a golden scan via laser scanning.


Reduce Scrap and Rework

BuildIT Projector softwareYou can find and fix errors immediately. Using advanced imaging and BuildIT Projector software, the TracerSI scans the surface throughout the assembly process. Errors are highlighted on the software display in real time. The IPV process verifies against the CAD model or golden scan:

  • The absence or presence of features.
  • The position of objects or features.
  • Foreign object debris (FOD).

TracerSI is the only laser projection system that fully supports targetless, Feature-Based Alignment, allowing users to set-up large-volume, “no touch” parts.

Instead of using retroreflectors, Feature-Based Alignment allows you to select holes or corners in the CAD model to use as alignment points.

BuildIT Projector software enables easy management of all the TracerSI processes, including controlling a multi-projector array that creates a large-scale virtual template in a single coordinate system.


Benefits of the TracerSI with BuildIT Projector

Virtual templating provides a myriad of advantages in manufacturing, including:

  • Reducing the time for layout, set-up and assembly.
  • Helping standardize alignment and inspection workflows.
  • Detecting and reducing manufacturing errors in real time.
  • Eliminating the space and costs of storing physical templates.
  • Improving quality control processes.
