FARO Arm

  • Introduction

    FARO ARM

    The world’s most innovative portable measurement solution. FARO offers the world’s best-selling measurement arm

    The FaroArm is a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) that allows manufacturers easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, tool certifications, CAD comparison, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, and more. The all-new FARO Edge is the most advanced, state-of-the-art FaroArm ever produced.

    With the ScanArm, the addition of the FARO Laser Line Probe to the FaroArm adds unparalleled non-contact 3D scanning capabilities for detailed measurement of surface form, making the ScanArm the perfect combination of a contact and non-contact portable CMM.

    FARO SCAN ARM

    The ideal contact/non-contact portable measurement system

    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.The FARO Edge ScanArm is the world’s smallest, lightest, and most affordable solution that combines the convenience of a FaroArm with the power of a Laser Line Probe to form the perfect contact/non-contact portable measurement system.

    The ScanArm is the ideal tool for product development, inspection, and quality control and offers capabilities such as point cloud comparison with CAD, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modeling of free-from surfaces.

  • Features

    FARO‘s portable measuring arms make measuring complex objects easy. This includes alignment, calibration, inspection, reverse engineering and as-built documentation with accuracy up to 13 microns. Save energy and extend component life with the new auto sleep mode, and enjoy complete wireless freedom thanks to Bluetooth®.

    FaroArm – complete wireless freedom

    Available in either six- or seven-axis models, FaroArms offer accuracy comparable to fixed CMMs, and come with software that is fully programmable for repetitive measurement. They also have a smaller footprint on the shop floor, and perform first-article inspections more efficiently.

    • NEW – Bluetooth® cable-free operation
    • NEW – Auto sleep mode
    • Universal quick mount
    • Light weight construction
    • Internal counterbalance
    • Infinite rotation for non-stop measuring
    • Composite material construction
    • Extended-use battery
    • Multi-probe capability
    The Quantum FaroArm® comes with the exclusive FARO i-Probe which is individually serialized with automatic size recognition and built-in probe temperature sensor. The Platinum FaroArm® has temperature and overload sensors which are located in each joint. They allow the arm to “sense” and react to thermal variations and improper handling for maximum accuracy
    The Fusion FaroArm® has temperature sensors which are located in each joint. They allow the arm to react to thermal variations for maximum accuracy and portability The FARO Laser ScanArm V3 is compatible with the Quantum, the Platinum and the Fusion FaroArm and the FaroArm’s Bluetooth® technology

    The FARO Laser ScanArm is a unique solution on the market for measuring machines. It enables users to inspect parts in detail by capturing large point-cloud data. Its open architecture enables the user to employ Geomagic, Polyworks, RapidForm and many other third-party software programmes.
    The Laser ScanArm tackles all measurement tasks like inspection, point cloud-to-CAD comparison, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modeling. Its main benefits are the accurate scanning of reflective and dark objects – the biggest challenge for all scanning systems.
