Measurement Arm Rapidly Verifies Parts
The Faro Edge from Faro Technologies is a portable measurement arm that enables manufacturers to verify product quality by performing inspections, tool certifications, CAD-to-part analysis, and reverse engineering via hard probing and non-contact laser scanning.
The Laser Line probe provides non-contact measurement capabilities. According to the company, a wider laser stripe increases scan coverage without sacrificing accuracy, while variable capture rates can produce more than 45,000 points per second. Using the Edge’s multi-function, quick-change handle port, the Laser Line probe seamlessly integrates into the arm.
