FARO® Introduces Next Generation FaroArm®

Elevates Value/Performance Standard for Manufacturing Inspection and Alignment

LAKE MARY, Fla., Aug. 3, 2017 — (PRNewswire) —  FARO® (NASDAQ: FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, construction BIM/CIM, public safety-forensics and 3D machine vision applications, introduces the new FARO® QuantumS FaroArm® ( www.faro.com/faroarm).  This introduction extends FARO leadership in value and performance in the manufacturing inspection process through best in class performance and durability, enhanced ergonomics and extreme portability. Live web demonstrations can be scheduled here.

FARO introduces next generation FaroArm to elevate value/performance standard for manufacturing inspection and alignment.

Performance and Durability 
The QuantumS is certified to ISO 10360 -12:2016, the most rigorous international measurement quality standard in existence. This global standard, unlike the various regional standards such as VDI/VDE 2617, establishes the consistent, critical testing procedures that enable objective performance comparisons across any and all Articulated Arm Coordinate Measuring devices. Also, the QuantumS sets a new standard for ruggedness as it tests to the International Electrical Commission (IEC 60068 -2) standards for shock, vibration and temperature stress relief. Next, with the addition of the FAROBluTM Laser Line Probe HD, the QuantumS continues the FARO tradition of delivering maximum measurement consistency for both direct-to-parts contact and non-contact requirements in every working environment. Finally, FARO extends its leadership in improving end user productivity by enabling users to capture more, richer detail faster than any other comparable product on the market.

Usability 
The advanced man-machine interface and enhanced ergonomics make the FARO QuantumS a virtual extension of the human arm and enables up to 15% less effort and fatigue for the operator with direct, contact only units. This dramatic increase in both comfort and portability increases operator productivity by facilitating continuous use over extended periods during the workday.

Portability 
QuantumS advances the concept of true portability and ensures additional floor reach by up to 40%. Advanced wireless capability ensures that the reliability of cable-free scanning and probing is comparable to scanning and probing with a cable attachment. Furthermore, the availability of dual, hot swappable batteries supports continuous operation anywhere on the factory floor without the need for external power.

"FARO takes great pride in its market leadership position in delivering a FaroArm that is 25% more accurate than any FaroArm to date, is our toughest FaroArm ever and adheres to the most exacting global quality standards," states Simon Raab, Ph.D., FARO's President and CEO.  "We continue to elevate the value/performance standard for large scale measurement applications by combining leading edge usability, best in class performance and value driven pricing.  Next generation user interaction, enhanced portability and Super 6DoF compatibility ( www.faro.com/lasertracker) significantly improves the end user experience from both a personal comfort and productivity standpoint."

The QuantumS FaroArm is available for immediate quoting.
