How 3D scanning is revolutionizing Artifact Preservation

Non-Contact 3D Digitizers work without touching the object and without damaging it in any way. Once obtained, the object data can be stored digitally or output in analog form so it can be processed and utilized for a wide variety of purposes.

This is a revolutionary process because we can now digitally record artifacts and object previously unmeasurable because of their fragility. Optical measurement systems, or non-contact scanners, are ideally suited for multi-dimensional imaging and digitization of art objects and cultural heritage materials. The object data collected may be used to conserve art and cultural treasures, for study and research purposes, and as a powerful marketing tool.

FARO Introduces World’s Most Accurate Break Resistant SMR as Part of Expanded Line of Laser Tracker Targets

Coventry, 13th July 2010 – FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO), the world’s leading provider of portable 3D measurement and imaging solutions, announced today the release of the world’s most accurate break resistant spherically mounted retroreflector (SMR) as a part of their newly expanded line of laser tracker targets.

FARO’s new break resistant SMRs offer the accuracy, durability, and affordability needed in today’s demanding measurement environments. In the past, users were faced with choosing between a high performance, lower cost glass panel SMR or a durable, higher cost, less accurate break resistant model. With FARO’s new break resistant SMRs, however, this dilemma no longer exists. Their accuracy is equal to or better than a traditional glass panel SMR, while having the added advantage of being break resistant. They also come at a lower cost than before – some are even less than a traditional glass panel SMR. This will allow users to quickly recognise a true return on the investment.
