GRECO Invests in FARO® Scanners, Bringing State-of-Art Technology to Its Railing Fabrication and Installation Business
FARO scanning technology provides unparalleled accuracy, streamlines processes, and improves efficiencies.
TAMPA, Fla – May 19, 2023 – GRECO Architectural Metal Products (GRECO), a leading manufacturer of high-quality architectural railings and metal products for multi-family and commercial structures in the United States and Canada, has invested in two FARO® Premium Scanners to significantly upgrade its measuring, fabrication and installation process. The state-of-the-art scanner uses laser technology to capture highly accurate 3D images and exact measurements of the project.
“Advanced laser technology is a game changer for our business,” says Matt Palmer, President of GRECO’s U.S. Operations. “This technology provides far more accurate field conditions and real dimensions without human error, resulting in greatly improved efficiency. Our talented design staff can now focus more on the aesthetics and functionality of each installation. The FARO scanners are especially useful when we are designing radius projects, or multi-directional stairs that require extremely complex geometry. Our CAD team can start fabrication details immediately, rather than relying on return visits to the site to confirm details.”
The FARO scanner can be positioned in multiple locations to capture a complete image of the space. Specialty software links the images together to create a detailed 3D model with real-world data. It is ideal for capturing detailed images of indoor and outdoor spaces and provides GRECO’s design and installation team with spot-on measurements for fabrication and installation of railings and architectural metal products.
“Like all construction industries, our business has been affected by labor shortages and manpower issues,” continues Palmer. “Now, we can give our current and future employees the knowledge and skill to use advanced technology, instead of doing the tedious and sometimes physically demanding work of hand measurements. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
