FARO, one of the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, construction BIM and public safety forensics, announces the release of the next generation of FARO Laser Trackers, the 6DoF Vantage product family with 6Probe.
In 2015, FARO disrupted the large CMM market with the powerful Super 6DoF TrackArm solution that integrated the FARO Vantage tracker and the FaroArm. This patented, comprehensive solution is capable of measuring or scanning over tens of meters with no loss in accuracy, no line of sight issues and simultaneous measurement by many operators.
Today, FARO is proud to introduce the 6Probe, a fully integrated hand-held probe for easily probing hidden, hard-to-reach features in hard-to-reach locations. Together, the TrackArm super 6DoF and the 6Probe offer the most complete solution portfolio at an unbeatable price for every measurement need, large and small. This new functionality addresses a wide range of large scale metrology applications across a variety of manufacturing focused industries including automotive, aerospace, construction, heavy equipment and shipbuilding.
“We challenge anyone in the industry to dispute this statement of fact: the patented FARO Super 6DoF and 6Probe total solution is the most complete, most adaptable metrology platform that manufacturers will ever need. Whatever you assemble or manufacture, large or small, easy or hard to reach, complex or simple, this platform can meet your needs with the best value combination of performance and price,” stated Simon Raab PhD, CEO and early innovator in portable, adaptable 3D measurement.
The 6DoF FARO Vantage product family includes two high performance models, the VantageE6 with an operating range of 35 metres and the VantageS6 with an operating range of 80 metres. Both are tested to rigorous International Electro technical Commission (IEC) standards for shock, vibration and extreme thermal conditions and are IP52 rated for dust and water resistance.
