3D measurement and imaging specialist FARO has acquired Laser Projection Technologies (LPT), which is focused on high-speed, long-range 3D laser projection and measurement systems designed for use in manufacturing applications requiring precise component alignment.
Located in Londonderry, New Hampshire, LPT’s laser projection and measurement systems are used throughout manufacturing environments around the globe to maximize productivity and efficiency.
FARO President and CEO Dr Simon Raab said: “The acquisition of LPT enhances FARO’s robust portfolio of 3D measurement solutions.
“In addition to LPT’s leading laser projection solutions, we believe LPT’s proprietary imaging laser photogrammetry and imaging laser radar technologies have tremendous potential to disrupt the market by establishing a new class of high-speed laser measurement with advanced 3D imaging capabilities and we will focus our integration efforts on rapidly leveraging this potential. This technology is thousands of times faster than currently available Lidar products and has proprietary imaging features, which provide extraordinary qualitative and quantitative inspection capabilities in every area of manufacturing. In addition, this promising technology incorporates a well-developed laser projection capability to guide assembly, making it a fully robotic, high-speed collaborative tool for manual or automated assembly and verification. In this case, ‘seeing’ is truly measuring.”
