Laser Design Installs Faroarm At Carley Foundry

Laser Design has announced that Carley Foundry recently installed a Laser Design scanning system using the Faroarm in its Blaine, Minnesota facility. Carley Foundry specialises in high-accuracy aluminum castings for the aerospace and automotive industries. The Laser Design system will be used for verifying aluminum mould tooling prior to production runs. Laser Design said that Carley Foundry will be able to increase productivity and quality with its high-precision laser scanning system.

The system can be moved around the production area to provide timely verification and inspection to the parts being cast at any time. The system also allows users to reverse engineer legacy parts for which no CAD models exist. The portable Faroarm arm is teamed with the Laser Design SLP-500 laser-line scanning probe, which is suitable for the complex profile contour scanning typical of cast part geometries.

The high-speed, high-accuracy, non-contact 3D laser probe captures up to 144,000 points per second. The SLP probe line features digital (ASCII) coordinate output, a visible beam, a Class II rating for safe and easy-to-see operations and a long standoff to prevent crashes during part scanning. The system features a large measurement range and automatic adjustments for surface colour and finish. Dual CMOS receptors featuring simultaneous scanning assist with steep sidewall and recessed geometry capture.
