LAKE MARY, FL-Faro Technologies Inc., a provider of portable 3-D measurement and imaging solutions, and Airbus, one of the world's leading aircraft manufacturers, announced that they have signed a five-year agreement for Faro to be a key supplier of laser trackers and measurement accessories for the new Airbus A350 project assembly line. This agreement includes 62 Faro Laser Tracker ION units and also covers Airbus' key system providers for fixtures and production systems.

Airbus has been a long-standing Faro customer and this agreement complements the 33 units in operation since 2002, which includes the assembly of the A380's main body section (fuselage) in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

"The Airbus decision to purchase additional units of the new Laser Tracker ION confirms that Faro has proven to be a key supplier to Airbus' manufacturing processes and demonstrates that the Faro Laser Tracker is a state-of-the-art product that meets the most challenging requirements, enabling high-precision measurements and supporting advanced production methods," stated Juan-Pablo Lemaitre, vice president sales & marketing, Faro Europe.

With this new agreement, Faro Laser Trackers will be installed in every European Airbus manufacturing facility.
