Hardware Solutions


Portable Coordinate Measuring Machine

The FARO Quantum FaroArm is the most innovative portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM). Quantum FaroArm with FARO 8-Axis system is the world’s only eight-axis portable metrology solution. Quantum is the first Arm to meet the new and most rigorous ISO 10360-12:2016 international measurement quality standard for articulated arms.


Laser Tracker

With superior accuracy, exceptional portability and outstanding ruggedness, Vantage Laser Trackers make large-scale 3D measurement easy. Vantage Laser Trackers feature FARO’s patent-pending ActiveSeek™ has capability to quickly sync up the user and the tracker. The Vantage series also includes FARO’s unique RemoteControls™ workflow, which allows a single user to control functions such as live video feed and tracker movements with a mobile phone or tablet, thus increasing mobility and ease of use. The VantageS is intended for short-to-long range measurement applications of up to 80 meters, while the VantageE supports short-to-medium range applications of up to 35 meters.


Laser Projector

The FARO Tracer Laser Projector accurately projects a laser line onto a surface or object, providing a virtual template which operators and assemblers use to quickly and accurately position components with absolute confidence. The laser template is created using a 3D CAD model which enables the system to visually project a laser outline of parts, artifacts, or areas of interest. The result is a virtual and collaborative 3D template to streamline a wide range of assembly and production applications.
