3D FARO Arm Measurements

FARO articulating arms determine and record the location of a probe in 3D space and report the results through software. To calculate this location, the rotational angle of each joint and the length of each segment in the arm must be known. The rotational angle is determined using optical rotary encoders that count rotations incrementally, and software is used to convert those counts into angle changes.


The FARO QuantumS Arm is the world’s most innovative portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) that allows manufacturers easy verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, dimensional analysis, CAD comparison, tool certifications, reverse engineering, and more.

Our articulating arm service utilizes the FARO QuantumS  which is the first arm to meet the new and most rigorous ISO 10360-12:2016 international measurement quality standard. The QuantumS sets a new industry benchmark and extends the FARO tradition of maximum measurement consistency and reliability in every working environment.

The FARO QuantumS is available in four working volumes and it is the most intuitive, ergonomic and accurate FaroArm® ever delivered. Perfectly suited for high accuracy measurement tasks, it helps manufacturers meet their most demanding specifications on parts and assemblies.
