FARO Technologies Inc. (Lake Mary, Fla.) has released the FARO PowerGAGE, a new measurement device that adds CAD-to-part analysis capability to its FARO Gage product line. The new device runs exclusively on a version of Delcam Plc's (Birmingham, U.K.) PowerINSPECT software and can create inspection programs/routines offline, which can be run by anyone in the facility. It also imports all major industry CAD formats; performs surface inspection against master CAD files; and automatically optimizes the viewing angle of the part as it is measured. In a climate-controlled room, the device can be mounted directly to where the part is being made. faro.gocomp.biz/16, delcam.gocomp.biz/11
