Virtual Templating Technologies for Streamlined AssemblyVirtual templating and guided assistance technologies help manufacturers reduce rework and increase throughput. FARO Tracer Laser Projectors create a virtual template that operators and assemblers can use to quickly and accurately sequence work and position components. The templates themselves are created using 3D CAD models, enabling virtual and collaborative work opportunities that streamline numerous assembly and production applications.
In addition to basic alignment, these laser projection solutions can also identify the features of a machined part, making sure holes are shown in the proper location and in the correct orientation. Virtual templating reduces errors that can cascade into lost revenue and eliminates the need to house physical templates at facilities.
