Traditionally, welding facilities have relied on blueprints, tools and tape measures to build and weld the parts. This process often resulted in costly mistakes, scrap and rework. The FARO® TracerSI is the ideal solution to quickly and efficiently tackle complex welding projects. Using laser projection, the FARO TracerSI allows users to correctly place parts and components during each step of the assembly process. This solution allows welders to spend less time measuring and more time welding.
