The FARO TracerM Laser Projector accurately projects a laser line onto a surface or object, providing a virtual template which operators and assemblers use to quickly and accurately position components with absolute confidence. The laser template is created using a 3D CAD model which enables the system to visually project a laser outline of parts, artifacts, or areas of interest. The result is a virtual and collaborative 3D template to streamline a wide range of assembly and production applications.
Faro Tracer Laser Projector
CAD-based virtual templating eliminates the need for physical templates and hard tooling. The risk of human error and costly rework/scrap during assembly is significantly reduced. Manufacturers can avoid the time and expense associated with using large, heavy templates while significantly improving quality control processes. An easy-to-use operator interface via powerful FARO BuildIT Projector Software minimizes both the time and skill required for operation.
Intended for large-scale applications, FARO Tracer Laser Projectors offer accurate, variable and long-range 3D projection distances of 1.8 to 15.2 meters (6 to 50 feet), with a projection envelope of up to 15.2 x 15.2 meters (50 x 50 feet).
Refer to the table below to choose the Tracer model that is best suited for your requirements.
- Advanced Trajectory Control (ATC)
Provides fast projection with superior dynamic accuracy and a rapid refresh rate – which minimizes flicker associated with other laser projection systems
- Accurate, Variable and Long-Range Projection
Variable focus allows multi-range projection from 1.83 to 15.25 meters (6 to 50 feet)
- Retro-Reflective Alignment Targets
Photogrammetric targets (6 minimum) are used to enable the best fit alignment of the projected image onto the surface or object, thereby allowing the projected image to be consistent with the CAD model
- Multi-Projector Array Operation
For large assemblies and/or in space-constrained areas, multiple TracerM projectors can be controlled from a single workstation to provide large-scale virtual templates in one coordinate system
- Rugged, Reliable Solution
Proven production floor technology in a dust-sealed industrial enclosure
FARO BUILDIT PROJECTOR SOFTWARE
The FARO RayTracer™ Software Suite – containing the RayTracer Operator and RayTracer Administrator programs – is required to operate the TracerM projector. Customers may also choose to use an additional third-party software package that can directly create XML files in the proper format for the TracerM to utilize for projection
