Design World Webinar: Contact vs. Non-Contact Technologies

FARO Applications Engineer Ryan Dant will explore contact and non-contact measurement technologies, and explain the advantages of each to the design engineer, OEM manufacturer and others. Attendees will gain a greater understanding of the advantages and drawbacks for both, and ultimately be able to decide which is best for their unique application.

Attend this webinar and FARO will:

  • Discuss, in-depth, the process of contact measurement including the types of probing methods - hard-probing and touch-trigger methods

  • Explain 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

  • Detail the uses of each type of measurement in different applications, and explain the specific benefits to users
