FARO Edge ScanArm HD combines all of the advantages of a hard probing system with the capabilities of the FARO Laser Line Probe HD to provide rapid point cloud collection with high-definition resolution and precise accuracy – all in a compact, easy-to-use, and fully-integrated system.
The FARO Edge ScanArm HD is ideal for product development, inspection and quality control, and offers capabilities such as point-cloud comparison with CAD, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modeling of free-form surfaces.
The FARO Laser Line Probe HD brings together the power of a blue laser, state-of-the art camera and optics to maximize:
In designing the Laser Line Probe HD, FARO’s engineers recognized and seamlessly integrated all the key factors that work in harmony to optimize performance.
For a laser line probe product, the key design parameters impacting performance are:
Today’s scanners employ one of two laser types: blue laser or red laser. The Laser Line Probe HD leverages an optically-superior blue laser technology.
Blue lasers have a shorter wavelength, which delivers improved scanning results with higher resolution thanks to greater ability to discern smaller detail in an object.
Blue laser technology also provides a 50% reduction in speckle noise that is proportional to wavelength and degrades measurement accuracy.
For the user the benefits are immediately evident: the FARO Laser Line Probe HD’s blue laser offers 50% better optical resolution than a red laser scanner. This difference is most noticeable when scanning optically challenging objects with dark, shiny or reflective surfaces. With red laser technology, it is sometimes necessary to use a special spray on the scanned object to make the surface less reflective, or multiple target placements.
The blue laser’s higher resolution dramatically reduces the need to spray parts. This removes an unnecessary step from your measurement process and saves you valuable time and productivity.
