FARO and Aberlink sign agreement to make Aberlink 3D software available for FARO Gage

FARO, the world's leading provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, and Aberlink, the largest UK owned CMM manufacturer, have signed an agreement under which the Aberlink 3D software is now available as an option for the FARO Gage.

After a period of extensive product development, the latest version of Aberlink's easy to use measurement software, Aberlink 3D, can now be employed with portable measuring arms. FARO have always supported an open architecture philosophy, and following successful test at customers' sites in both the UK and Germany, decided to make Aberlink 3D software available as an option for the FARO Gage for their European customers.

Aberlink's measurement software package was designed around an intuitive user interface that creates an interactive 3D image of the component as it is measured. In essence the software package represents an intelligent measuring system that is able to automatically recognise and define the various features being measured.

Software features developed specifically for FARO measuring arms ensure the on-screen image is always correctly orientated to match the measured part. Other innovations allow the arm to be used to control mouse functionality and the arm buttons to retake points and accept features. High speed scanning enables a standard fixed probe to be used to collect a high density of touch points using time and distance based point spacing

FARO's David Homewood, Area VP Sales, UK, France & Benelux, said: "The software solution from Aberlink offers an excellent fit for our FARO Gage. The software offers simple functionality and visual representation of the parts being measured. Combined with a professional reporting package the Aberlink software adds new capability to the FARO Gage."
