The world-leading 3D measurement, imaging, and realisation technology provider, FARO Technologies, Inc. has introduced the all-new FARO Edge ScanArm HD (laser line probe HD).
The ideal tool for product development, inspection, and quality control, FARO Edge ScanArm HD offers point cloud comparison with CAD, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modelling capabilities.
The FARO Edge ScanArm HD combines the power of the new laser line probe with the flexibility of the FaroArm to create one of the world’s most affordable, high performance contact/non-contact portable measurement systems.
Delivering rapid point cloud collection with extreme resolution and high accuracy in a compact, lightweight and easy-to-use system, ScanArm HD enables users to seamlessly scan across diverse surface materials regardless of contrast, reflectivity or part complexity and without any special coatings or target placement.
Kathleen J. Hall, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Americas explained that the ScanArm HD was developed to address the most pressing application needs of their customers. With its ability to deliver high-definition data with superior speed and surface coverage at an affordable price, the ScanArm HD enables their customers to reduce on-site measurement times, scan highly challenging materials, and meaningfully improve their products and processes.
Key features of the ScanArm HD include an extra wide scan stripe and fast frame rate increasing coverage and reducing scanning time to boost productivity; intricate components captured in fine detail as a result of the 2,000 actual points per scanline and the new blue laser featuring noise reduction technology; and ability for users to dramatically reduce required training time with the new crosshair feature and existing LED Rangefinder functionality, which provides real-time scanning feedback.
