FARO has launched its next generation FARODesign ScanArm 2.0. It delivers up to 25% improved system accuracy compared to the previous generation. Productivity is enhanced with the addition of FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD that incorporates advanced blue laser technology and rapid scanning of up to 600,000 points per second.
It is now available in three highly manoeuvrable arm lengths - 2.5m, 3.5m and 4m - to ensure that end users can select the option that optimally fits with the specific design objectives for their projects. Furthermore, it includes the option of dual, hot swappable batteries that enable continuous operation wherever needed without the requirement for external power. Users can now bring the scan to the project rather than needing to bring the project to the scan.
Enhanced ergonomics and a 25% overall weight reduction enables less operator fatigue. This leap forward in comfort, combined with improved manoeuvrablility, significantly increases productivity by facilitating continuous use over extended periods during the workday.
“In 2016, FARO made a strategic decision that our combination of technology and unique understanding of the needs of design engineers positioned us to facilitate significantly better efficiency in the product design workflow,” states Thorsten Brecht, Senior Director, Product Design Vertical. “The initial Design ScanArm validated our thinking and we developed the next generation based on those key learnings with more flexibility, higher accuracy and improved, user-centric ergonomics”.
