Norton Motorcycles revives their glory using cutting-edge technology from FARO


FARO, the world’s leading provider of portable 3D measurement and imaging solutions, now helps Norton Motorcycles to meet the high quality requirements of today – even if their bikes are a revival of the motorsport aficionados’ dream from half a century ago.

Norton Motorcycles is an iconic name in British Motorcycle history and the phoenix is rising from the ashes at a new manufacturing facility, at the home of Motorcycle racing, Donnington Park. To make sure that quality is on the highest level, Norton use a FaroArm Platinum 2.4m to measure motorcycle parts, frames, sub assemblies, and finished products. Stuart Garner, CEO at Norton Motorcycles commented, "The Faro Arm allows us to build in quality into every Norton that we hand-produce to ensure each product meets our high quality standards. We utilise the FaroArm to verify the product at various stages of assembly and the arm’s simplicity and flexibility lends itself to our high value, low volume product levels."

David Homewood, of Faro UK Technologies, adds, "It is a great feeling to partner with such a strong brand that is having a renaissance and I wish the company every success for the future. FARO is proud to support a highly energetic business in an early stage of its development and contribute to the establishment and growth of this famous company."
