FARO Introduces Focus3D Laser Scanner for 3-D Documentation

(FARO: Lake Mary, FL) -- FARO Technologies Inc., a global provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, has launched the next generation of its innovative laser scanner, the Focus3D. Complete with new features that enhance registration and remote functionality, this newest Focus3D offering represents FARO’s most powerful laser scanning solution to date.

The Focus3D now includes a Multi-Sensor hardware feature. It incorporates a compass and height sensor to complement the device’s existing dual-axis compensator. The new sensors define height and orientation against a set point for each scan, improving the automatic registration process and reducing post-processing work.

Users can now perform and download scans remotely with the WLAN remote control included in each Focus3D. The device may also be equipped with one of three, application-specific adaptors that allow the Focus3D to be mounted to any fixed post or utilized in mobile or super-fast tunnel scanning applications.

SCENE WebShare 4.9, FARO’s Internet sharing browser, will provide measurement tools and added information via Documentation Objects. Scans shared using WebShare can be directly viewed on the browser or analyzed with a variety of mapping functions.

“We’ve included new features with this latest generation of the Focus3D that we think will make our customers’ lives much easier,” says FARO CEO, Jay Freeland. “By including new functionality in an already strong offering, we believe FARO has the most competitive laser scanner on the market.”

More information on the FARO Focus3D is available at www.faro.com/focus/us.
