Leaders in metrology to co-host expert panel and highlight complimentary systems using co-sponsored Corvette in booth E-5504

Lake Mary, FL - FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO) and Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology, LLC announced today they will share adjacent exhibit space and demonstrate a network of shared metrology solutions at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago, September 10-15, 2012. This marks the first time that the leaders in portable and bridge coordinate measuring machines (CMM) have formally exhibited together to demonstrate the multiple ways manufacturers can benefit from a variety of high-precision measurement technologies.

Representatives from both companies will be on hand during a cooperative demonstration panel to be held at 1pm EDT on Thursday, September 14th. Attendees are invited to attend the taping of this live event.

"We're excited to work with our colleagues at Carl Zeiss and demonstrate a spectrum of solutions that help customers reduce waste, shorten workflows and ultimately, lower their costs," explained David Morse, Senior Vice President and Managing Director for FARO in the Americas. "The two companies share the joint promise of enabling our customers to improve efficiency. At IMTS, we'll demonstrate how we deliver on that promise."

To highlight the multiple ways in which the companies' equipment works together in facilities throughout the country, the Pratt & Miller and Corvette Racing Team's Corvette, co-sponsored by FARO and Carl Zeiss, will be on display in the center of their shared booth space, E-5504. Pratt & Miller used FARO and Carl Zeiss solutions throughout the design and assembly of the 2011, 24 Hours of Le Mans winning racecar.

"Leading edge design and manufacturing companies like Pratt & Miller need the best performing metrology tools available. We feel that the network of solutions offered by Carl Zeiss and FARO covers the widest range of high-value applications available on the market today," stated Greg Lee, President of Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology, LLC in North America.

IMTS is one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world, with over 82,000 visitors. To make a reservation to speak one-on-one with a representative of FARO or Carl Zeiss at IMTS, find their virtual booth at Visit or for information on company products and services.
