FARO Releases Edge ScanArm HD

Published: Thursday, November 13, 2014 - 17:20

(FARO: Lake Mary, FL) -- FARO Technologies has released the new FARO Laser Line Probe HD. The power of the high-definition 3D scanner combined with the flexibility of the FARO Edge measuring arm creates the world’s most affordable, high-performance contact/noncontact portable measurement system on the market.

The Edge ScanArm HD delivers rapid point-cloud collection with extreme resolution and high accuracy—all in a compact, lightweight, and easy-to-use system. The new functionalities enable users to seamlessly scan across diverse surface materials, regardless of contrast, reflectivity, or part complexity, and without any special coatings or target placement.

“The Laser Line Probe HD was developed to set a new standard in 3D laser scanning technology. We are strongly focused on the application needs of our customers, and we are confident that we will exceed their expectations,” says Kathleen J. Hall, senior vice president and managing director, Americas. “The Edge ScanArm HD delivers high-definition data with superior speed and surface coverage at an affordable price, enabling our customers to reduce on-site measurement times, to scan very challenging materials, and to meaningfully improve their products and processes.”

The extra-wide scan stripe and fast frame rate boost productivity by increasing coverage and reducing scanning time. Intricate components can be captured in fine detail as a result of the 2,000 actual points per scanline and the new blue laser featuring noise reduction technology.

Users can dramatically reduce required training time with the new crosshair feature and existing LED Rangefinder functionality, which provides real-time scanning feedback.

The FARO Edge ScanArm HD 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.

In combination with the all-in-one metrology software CAM2 Measure 10, FARO provides its customers with a unique solution for both contact and noncontact measurement perfectly suited for metrology challenges for a wide range of applications.
