3D FARO ScanArm Measurements

FARO articulating scan 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.

Dimensional metrology services include 3D alignment, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, inspection, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing and more.

FARO ScanArm

The QuantumS combined with the FAROBluTM Laser Line Probe HD delivers unparalleled non-contact measurement capabilities by integrating the best laser scanner available in the market.

Through simple plug-and-play, users can attach the FAROBluTM to the QuantumS, creating an all-in-one measurement solution.

The hard probe and the Laser Line Probe can digitize interchangeably without having to remove either component. Users can digitize simple features with the Arm’s hard probe and seamlessly scan across diverse surface materials regardless of contrast, reflectivity or part complexity without any special coatings or target placement.

The FAROBluTM utilizes blue laser technology, a state-of-the-art camera and optics to provide best-in-class scanning capability, enabling fast scanning speed for high productivity. It allows operators to scan challenging surfaces, including dark and reflective materials, and provides users with high resolution and high accuracy.

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 600,000 points per second scan rate and the FAROBluTM laser featuring noise reduction technology. The cross-hair feature and LED Rangefinder functionality provide real-time scanning feedback thereby allowing users to dramatically reduce required training time.
