With the power of the new high-definition Laser Line Probe HD 3D scanner and the flexibility of the FARO Edge measuring arm, the FARO Edge ScanArm HD really is the world’s most affordable, high performance contact & non-contact portable measurement system on the market.
The brand new Edge ScanArm HD offers rapid point cloud collection with extreme resolution and high accuracy – all in a compact and easy-to-use system.
The new features of the Edge ScanArm HD allow users to seamlessly scan across diverse surface materials regardless of factors such as contrast, reflectivity or part complexity and without any special coatings or target placement.
In addition, scanning time is reduced and coverage is increased due to the fast frame rate and the extra wide scan stripe . Intricate components can now be captured in fine detail as a result of the 2,000 actual points per scanline and the new blue laser featuring noise reduction technology. In addition, users can dramatically reduce required training time with the new crosshair feature and existing LED Rangefinder functionality, which provides real-time scanning feedback.
The Edge ScanArm HD will be available for live product demonstrations at the TCT Show, Birmingham (Stand B24, Hall 3A) – from 30th September to 2nd October 2014 !
