“Industry 4.0” refers to the digitalisation and networking of production processes and environments. In large companies within the automotive industry, these processes are already offering enormous efficiency and diversity. Although we may always refer to an “industrial revolution”, Industry 4.0 is far more about an industrial “evolution” that demands tailor-made solutions.

On the path towards Industry 4.0, experts in measuring and imaging technology can offer solid support. When it comes to entirely individual and bespoke solutions in quality assurance and automation, FARO, the specialist in measuring technology and imaging processes, can offer a comprehensive portfolio and a wealth of experience. FARO deploys high-precision instruments both for tactile and for non-contact recording of objects, whether by means of visual imaging procedures, tactile measuring arms or laser scan technology.

FARO uses these competence building blocks to develop individual solutions directly tailored to the requirements of its customers, from individual building blocks through to complete solutions. The newly launched business area; 3D Solutions & Services, specialises in working together with the client to find freely configurable, rapid and cost-effective measuring and automation solutions in order to support companies on the path towards Industry 4.0.

“We offer a strong knowledge and exchange platform, both for big and small or medium-sized firms”, stresses Markus Grau, Director of Product Management 3D Solutions & Services. “Our goal is to bundle the whole range of competences and thus create the best possible individual measuring and automation solutions for our partners that are more than just ‘state-of-the-art’”. The systematic further development of application solutions within FARO, for example, as well as the interdisciplinary cooperation in a network of research institutions and businesses thus ensure intelligent innovations suitable for practical use.
