FARO Design ScanArm 2.0

FARO DESIGNS SCANARM® 2.0


The FARO® Design ScanArm 2.0 is a portable 3D scanning solution tailored for 3D modeling, reverse engineering, and CAD-based design applications across the product lifecycle management (PLM) process.

The FARO® Design ScanArm® 2.0 features the FAROBluTM leveraging the optically-superior blue laser technology with fast scanning speed to deliver high-resolution point cloud data and the ability to seamlessly scan challenging products, objects and prototyes without the need for spray or targets.

With a weight of only 9.5 kg* a 25% weight reduction, the new Design ScanArm 2.0 is lightweight and maneuverable for extended operation. Optional ScanArm lengths of 2.5m, 3.5m and 4.0m provides an optimal fit for the specific design objective. The Design ScanArm 2.0 comes equiped with dual, hot swappable batteries that enable continuous operation with no the need for external power within the design studio or engineering lab.

New kinematic iprobes for easy connect/disconnect combined with a simplified quick release user interface, makes the device effortless to operate regardless of skill level or 3D scanning experience.

The FARO Design ScanArm 2.0 is the ideal 3D scanning solution for any organization that may have the need to manufacture parts without existing CAD models, develop aftermarket products that need to fit tightly with existing products, reverse engineer legacy parts for design changes or replacement, create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs, design aesthetically pleasing, freeform surfaces, or leverage the power of rapid prototyping.

Applications

REVERSE ENGINEERING

Quickly digitize legacy parts to support design changes, replacements, incorporation into new designs, or to perform competitive analysis.

CAD RECONSTRUCTION

Create manufacturing-ready CAD files for parts that broken, lost, or unavailable.

AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS

Quickly and accurately scan OEM parts enabling the efficient design of aftermarket products in CAD based directly on the geometry of the mating part.

MODIFICATION OF PRODUCTION TOOLING

Capture the as-built condition of complex tools and molds in order to update the tooling to support a new model or variant or to reproduce or move the assembly line.

TESTING AND VALIDATION

Conduct wear and tear analysis and create test documentation on parts and protoypes before and after product validation programs.

DIGITAL ARCHIVING AND ENGINEERING DOCUMENTATION

Create digital libraries to decrease inventory and warehouse costs that can be reproduced as needed in the future.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN / CLAY MODELING

Easily digitize complex, organic, challenging shapes for quick iterations to design aesthetically pleasing and functional freeform surfaces

3D PRINTING / RAPID PROTOTYPING

3D scan data can be easily produce a watertight, 3D printable mesh or a scale model to feed directly into a 3D printer

FARO DESIGN SCANARM SOFTWARE

The FARO® Design ScanArm can be bundled with one of 3D Systems’® Geomagic® Wrap, Geomagic® Design X, Geomagic for Solidworks and Geomagic® Control X. The available software options have capabilities that range from an automatic meshing software that delivers ready-to-use files without any post-processing to a full-featured reverse engineering software that combines history-based CAD with 3D scan data to create feature-based, editable solid models compatible with all major CAD platforms.
