ATS International B.V. announces a strategic alliance with Faro, the leading manufacturer of 3D imaging and portable measurement solutions. This partnership allows both companies to combine their forces by offering Faro’s devices completed with ATS CM4D – product quality validation software, which compares the physical properties of a product with its original CAD design.Customers including Ford Motor Company have already adopted ATS CM4D as their global standard.
