Technorazzi Live: Portable CMMs and FaroArm Quantum

In this episode of Technorazzi Live we will learn the basics about portable coordinate measuring machines (PCMMs). These versatile shop-floor measuring tools provide accurate 3-D measurements of small objects to very large objects.

 

This is a recorded version of a live broadcast from FARO's headquarters in Lake Mary, Florida. FARO is a worldwide leader in computer-aided measurement systems and software.

 

The video features FARO's FaroArm Quantum PCMM. Learn what is common amongst most PCMMs and, of course, what makes the Quantum stand out. The Quantum represents the latest generation of the FaroArm product line and its industry-leading features make it the perfect choice for companies constrained by the limitations of fixed CMMs and lesser quality portable models. It's the ideal tool for completing surface measurements and dimensional calculations to a high degree of precision. It will also perform CAD analysis, inspections, and alignments.
