New Portable CMM

faro-edgeAn innovative portable measurement solution has been added at Chesterfield Tool & Engineering.

Chesterfield Tool has purchased a FaroArm Edge Portable CMM. The FaroArm is a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) that allows manufacturers easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD comparison, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, and more. The all-new FARO Edge is the most advanced, state-of-the-art FaroArm ever produced.

Data collected with the FaroArm can be downloaded into existing models or used to generate solid models. Now precise measurement can be taken from equipment and machinery in the field. Chesterfield Tool recently won a purchase order, the scope being to manufacture and assembly to fit into an existing test stand. Using the FaroArm, we were able to validate fore and aft assemblies’ locations so that our design dimensions would handshake with these other assemblies.   Our client was pleased in knowing that hard number dimensions were available to validate their test stand set-up.
