FARO Technologies’ 30th Anniversary Custom Chopper Unveiled on Discovery Channel Print E-mail
Written by Faro   
Thursday, 27 January 2011
Like with most custom choppers created by Paul Jr. Designs, the FaroArm was used during the fabrication of this 30th anniversary bike. Creating one-of-a-kind masterpieces quickly and efficiently is important for PJD. Some elements like the gas tank, seat pan and primary cover display the true craftsmanship that goes into every design. All of these have intricate shapes and contours that are difficult to capture or re-create by hand. With the FaroArm they are able to digitize the exact shape and placement of components virtually eliminating the need to trace and create cardboard templates. The data collected with the arm can be immediately imported to the CNC machine or water-jet cutter to produce accurate pieces that will fit perfectly from the start, thus reducing scrap, saving time and boosting overall efficiency.

Watch the fabrication and unveiling of the new FARO custom chopper and get a sneak preview of the next generation FaroArm that will be showcased during this two part episode of American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior, seen in over 150 countries through the Discovery Communication Network.
