FARO® (NASDAQ: FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, construction BIM/CIM, public safety-forensics and 3D machine vision applications, introduces the next generation FARO® Design ScanArm® 2.0, http://www.faro.com/products/product-design/faro-design-scanarm/ specifically designed to address the most demanding challenges and requirements faced by product design and product engineering professionals. It offers an exceptional combination of flexibility, reliability, value and performance through best in class accuracy, resolution and ergonomics.

Performance

The new Design ScanArm® 2.0 delivers up to 25% improved system accuracy compared to the previous generation. Design and product engineering professionals can now have increased confidence that the real-world design output conforms even more tightly to the look, feel and complex geometry of the source object. Furthermore, 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.

Flexibility and Portability

The FARO Design ScanArm® 2.0 is now available in three highly maneuverable 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.

Usability

Enhanced ergonomics and a 25% overall weight reduction enables less operator fatigue. This leap forward in comfort, combined with improved maneuverability, significantly increases productivity by facilitating continuous use over extended periods during the workday.

The Design ScanArm® 2.0 enables a new level of efficiency with integration of a kinematic intelligent probe system for projects that require contact measurement. This system includes a toolless quick release for fast connect/disconnect and allows operators to quickly transition from contact to non-contact projects without needing to spend any significant additional time and effort to switch out or recalibrate probes.

"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 ScanArm® based on those key learnings with more flexibility, higher accuracy and improved, user-centric ergonomics."

The FARO Design ScanArm® 2.0 is available for immediate quoting.
