Farris Stays Abreast of Latest Technology Trends

At Farris Fab and Machine we are devoted to staying well-informed of the newest technologies to ensure quality and exceed customer satisfaction. We are pleased to announce the addition of 2 state-of-the-art quality measuring tools, the 4 ft. span Faro arm and the 12 ft. span Faro Arm. The Faro Arm is a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) that allows easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD comparisons, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, and so much more.

Due to the Faro Arms portability, the tool can be brought to the site of the inspection; therefore, reducing non-value added material handling. The Faro Arm helps in reducing onsite measuring time, which ultimately reduces overall costs. These savings are then passed on to our customer.

It is our ongoing attention to quality and innovative technology that has made us one of the most prominent contract manufacturers in the Southeast. Our goal was to end the sole reliance on fixed CMMs and the Faro Arm has done just that. By offering high accuracy levels, improving measurement consistency, reducing inspection time, and generating automatic reports, this technology has contributed to our ongoing improvement processes, quality, and our continuous movement toward customer satisfaction.
