Equipment

Buffalo Metrology Inc. primarily utilizes FARO CMMs (coordinate measuring machines) as we have found their support team to be the best in the business. Our technicians routinely attend in-house and off-site training for maintaining their certifications. We utilize a combination of CAM2 Measure 10, Polyworks, RevEng, PCDMIS, Fusion and GeoMet software.

FARO Laser Tracker Vantage E6

The FARO Vantage E6 delivers 6 Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) measurement capabilities via the optional FARO 6Probe, enabling access to hidden areas and small features. The 6Probe is the industry’s most cost-effective 6DoF solution that meets the dynamic measurement and accuracy requirements of the most challenging applications. 6DoF and standard probing are enhanced by FARO ActiveSeek™, a feature to automatically locate and follow the active target.
