Faro provides a competitive edge with laser line scanning

The Faro ScanArm combines all of the advantages of the FaroArm with a hand held laser scanner and is the perfect contact/non-contact measurement system.

Unlike other scanning systems, the ScanArm’s hard probe and the Laser Line Probe can digitize interchangeably without having to remove either component. Users can accurately measure prismatic features with the hard probe, then laser scan sections requiring larger volumes of data — all in one simple tool.

Non-contact measurement devices are becoming more and more popular. Handheld laser scanners provide a quick and effective way to inspect and reverse engineer complex parts and surfaces. They turn everyday objects into digital computer models. Soft, deformable, and complex shapes can be easily inspected – all without ever coming in contact with the part.

The Faro ScanArm is the ideal tool for inspection, point cloud-to-CAD comparison, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modeling.
