Inspection for the Smart Factory Part 1: Additive Manufacturing

Autodesk and FARO examine smart metrology for additive manufacturing

Autodesk and FARO examine smart metrology for additive manufacturing

If factories are to become faster and more flexible, inspection is a bottleneck to overcome, especially in industries where 100% inspection is required. 

Components made by additive manufacturing technologies (AM) have more variables than machined parts.

Faster inspection for additive manufacturing is more challenging because AM processes are not as accurate as cutting metal. Better metrology for AM will help reduce AM feedstock and costs.
