FARO Expands Sizes, Capabilities of FaroArm Lineup
Press release date: September 4, 2008
Available in either six- or seven-axis models, the FaroArms offer accuracy comparable to fixed CMMs, have software that is fully programmable for repetitive measurement, have a smaller footprint on the shop floor, and perform first-article inspections more efficiently. Users simply guide the FaroArm's touch-probe along the surface of the object to be measured. The device's laptop computer simultaneously illustrates the 3-D measurements on-screen and records all of the data. It creates a 3-D "blueprint" of a part or machine components, making it an all-in-one portable tool for improving production, quality and reverse engineering processes by rapidly verifying or scanning parts with greater confidence and accuracy.
