Technologies, the world’s leader in 3D measurement, imaging, and realisation
technology, has released the all-new Faro Edge ScanArm HD (Laser Line Probe
HD). The Faro Edge ScanArm HD combines the power of the new Laser Line Probe
with the flexibility of the FaroArm, thus creating the world’s most affordable,
high performance contact/non-contact portable measurement system.
According to a press release issued by Faro,
the 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 ScanArm HD will be available for live
product demonstrations in the Quality Assurance Pavilion at the 2014
International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at the McCormick Place in
Chicago, IL from September 8 – 13, 2014 at the Faro booth.
J. Hall, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, FARO, Americas noted that the ScanArm HD was developed to
address the most pressing application needs of company’s customers. “It delivers
high-definition data with superior speed and surface coverage at an affordable
price, enabling customers to reduce on-site measurement times, to scan very
challenging materials, and to meaningfully improve their products and processes,”
The press release said that the extra wide
scan stripe and fast frame rate boosts 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 modelling, said Kathleen Hall.
