Live Online Demo: FaroArm Quantum

FARO partners with Quality Digest on a groundbreaking live video event—Feb. 25 at 1 p.m. EST.

Published: Wednesday, February 17, 2010 - 15:44

In today’s ultracompetitive manufacturing world, knowledge is power, especially when it comes to the industry’s most advanced measurement and inspection systems.

To that end, FARO Technologies and Quality Digest are partnering to offer the rare opportunity to experience a live, no-cost video demo of the FaroArm Quantum portable measurement arm. This real-time event will be hosted on a special section of the Quality Digest web site on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 1 p.m. EST/10 a.m. PST. Users will need to register for the event at www.qualitydigest.com/content/technorazzi-live-faroarm-quantum-demo.

Attendees will be able to interact with the presenters in real time with questions that address their own measurement challenges. A unique e-mail address will be provided during the session where attendees can send their questions and comments. As many questions as possible will be answered live on air.

The Quantum is the latest generation of the FaroArm product line, and is the perfect measurement tool for companies constrained by the limitations of fixed CMMs and lesser-quality portable models. The FaroArm Quantum is ideal for:

  • Surface measurements
  • Dimensional calculations
  • CAD analysis
  • Inspection
  • Alignment


The FaroArm Quantum is designed for industries including aerospace/military, automotive, fabricated metals, rubber/plastics, and other manufacturing sectors where measurement accuracy and flexibility are the key requirements.

The live-demo video format has been pioneered within the quality industry by Quality Digest. Users can anticipate a wide range of upcoming live-video coverage of hardware and software product demos, industry events, and special presentations throughout 2010 and beyond.

Register for the event at www.qualitydigest.com/content/technorazzi-live-faroarm-quantum-demo.
