FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO) celebrates 30 years in 2011. With three decades of innovation and customer service, FARO celebrated this milestone by having one of its valued customers, Paul Jr. Designs, build a custom FARO-themed chopper.
Like with most custom choppers created by Paul Jr. Designs, the FaroArm was used during the fabrication of this 30th anniversary bike. Creating one-of-a-kind masterpieces quickly and efficiently is important for PJD. Some elements like the gas tank, seat pan and primary cover display the true craftsmanship that goes into every design. All of these have intricate shapes and contours that are difficult to capture or re-create by hand. With the FaroArm they are able to digitize the exact shape and placement of components, virtually eliminating the need to trace and create cardboard templates. The data collected with the arm can be immediately imported to the CNC machine or water-jet cutter to produce accurate pieces that will fit perfectly from the start, thus reducing scrap, saving time and boosting overall efficiency.
