Looking to see a concert this summer? Check out FARO Technologies' summer "Screaming for Accuracy" tour. The company decided to undertake the tour to teach manufacturers around the country how FARO's gages can have a positive impact on production. The events will be played out like real concerts, with coverage from local radio stations and gage-themed T-shirts available. FARO is promoting all of its gages, but its new 0.0002-inch accurate gage is created to be intuitive enough for machinists and other shop-floor personnel to use. For more info visit www.faro.com.
