Faro Acquires Laser Projection Technologies

Florida, USA: Faro has acquired Laser Projection Technologies (LPT), a supplier of 3D laser projection and measurement systems based in Londonderry, New Hampshire in the US.

LPT’s line of laser projection and measurement systems are used in manufacturing environments to increase productivity and efficiency.

“The acquisition of LPT enhances Faro’s robust portfolio of 3D measurement solutions,” said Dr Simon Raab, the company’s President and CEO. “In addition to LPT’s leading laser projection solutions, we believe LPT’s proprietary imaging laser photogrammetry and imaging laser radar technologies have tremendous potential to disrupt the market by establishing a new class of high-speed laser measurement with advanced 3D imaging capabilities and we will focus our integration efforts on rapidly leveraging this potential.

Dr Raab continued, “This technology is thousands of times faster than currently available Lidar products and has proprietary imaging features, which provide extraordinary qualitative and quantitative inspection capabilities in every area of manufacturing. In addition, this promising technology incorporates a well-developed laser projection capability to guide assembly, making it a fully robotic, high-speed collaborative tool for manual or automated assembly and verification.
