Faro Edge ScanArm HD
Measuring technology leader, Faro Technologies, has released a brand new product the FARO Edge ScanArm HD. Combining the flexibility of the FARO Edge arm and the newly released high definition handheld 3D scanner, the FARO Laser Line Probe, it is the world’s most affordable, high performance contact/no-contact portable measuring system.
The Edge ScanArm HD is a compact, lightweight and easy to use device, delivering rapid point cloud collection with extreme resolution and high accuracy. Users can seamlessly scan across varied surface materials regardless of contrast, reflectivity or part complexity and without the need for special coatings or target placement.
The extra wide scan stripe and fast frame rate provides increased coverage and reduces scanning time. The new blue laser featuring noise reduction boasts 2,000 points per scan line resulting in object scans captured in fine detail. Users can also dramatically reduce required training time with the new crosshair feature and existing LED Rangefinder functionality, which provides real-time scanning feedback.
Combined with the all-in-one metrology software CAM2 Measure 10, FARO provides a unique solution for both contact and non-contact measurement for metrology challenges in a wide range of applications.
“We are strongly focused on the application needs of our customers, and we are confident that we will exceed their expectations,” stated Kathleen J. Hall, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Americas. “The Edge ScanArm HD delivers high-definition data with superior speed and surface coverage at an affordable price, enabling our customers to reduce on-site measurement times, to scan very challenging materials, and to meaningfully improve their products and processes.”
The FARO Edge ScanArm HD is the ideal tool for product development, inspection, and quality control offering point cloud comparison with CAD, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modelling.
Visitors to this year’s TCT Show will be able to get a first hand look at The Edge ScanArm HD at the NEC Birmingham from 30th September until 2nd October 2014.
