FARO recently announced the acquisition of MWF-Technology GmbH, an innovator in mobile Augmented Reality (AR) solutions. MWF’s breakthrough technology enables large, complex 3D CAD data to be transferred to a tablet device, which can then be used for mobile visualisation and comparison to real world conditions. This enables real time, actionable manufacturing insight for in-process inspection, assembly, guidance and positioning. Speaking about this acquisition, Dr Simon Raab, President & CEO, FARO, said, “We are very excited about expanding our portfolio of virtual reality solutions into actionable, mobile Augmented Reality with MWF. With the introductions of Mobile AR and VR solutions, we are at a seminal moment, where we can enable our customers to evolve their thinking and actions beyond doing it the right way to doing it the best way every time. They will benefit from error detection at even earlier stages of the production, construction or design process. FARO continues to be committed to driving technological innovation that creates value for our customers.”
