Calibrate Machines For In-Spec Parts

FARO’s portable 3D measurement solutions like the FARO Laser Tracker and FaroArm can be used in the calibration of machines in manufacturing to ensure accuracy of parts produced by the machines.

Good parts and reduced downtime

Out-of-tolerance parts are often the result of a poorly calibrated machine. With properly calibrated machines, part production is optimized and downtime reduced. Properly calibrated machines produce conforming parts and allow you to minimize the costs of scrap and rework.

Short setup time to identify errors

Quick checks of machine calibration using portable CMMs from FARO, allow operators to perform full volumetric accuracy tests with minimal setup time and to quickly identify calibration errors.

Industries such as automotive, aerospace and shipbuilding have adopted 3D portable metrology solutions from FARO for re-calibration of machines, tools, molds, dies, jigs and templates.

FARO ScanArm®

FARO provides a competitive all-in-one metrology solution with the ScanArm

The FARO ScanArm combines all of the advantages of the FaroArm with a hand held laser scanner (Laser Line Probe) and is the perfect contact/non-contact measurement system. Unlike other scanning systems, the ScanArm’s hard probe and the Laser Line Probe can digitize interchangeably without having to remove either component. Users can accurately measure prismatic features with the hard probe, then laser scan sections requiring larger volumes of data — all in one simple tool.

  • Scan rate – 280 frames/sec, 280fps x 2,000 points/line = 560,000 points/sec
  • High Dynamic Range Mode and advanced software algorithms to scan challenging materials
  • LED Rangefinder functionality which provides real-time scanning feedback
  • Blue laser technology delivers improved scanning results with higher resolution

FARO Laser Tracker

Advanced, accurate, versatile and portable laser trackers

The FARO VantageS and VantageE Laser Trackers are high-performance, high-value Laser Trackers which maximize productivity and reduce inspection cycle times by up to 75% . These Laser Trackers set the standard in workflow productivity management for large-scale metrology applications by offering mobile device control, exceptional portability, battery operation, ruggedness, and high accuracy.

  • VantageS: 160m (525 ft.) spherical working volume
  • VantageE: 50m (164 ft.) spherical working volume
  • Accuracy up to 0.015mm (0.0006 in.)* [*Typical angle measurement performance at 2m]
  • Hot swappable batteries that eliminate the need for AC power and cabling

FARO Cobalt Array Imager

Unlimited Multi-Imager Scanning Configurations

The FARO Cobalt Array Imager is a metrology-grade non-contact scanner which captures millions of high-resolution 3D coordinate measurements in seconds. It is equipped with dedicated on-board processors and a smart sensor that allows multi-array configurations.

  • 5MP model – for most applications
  • 9MP model – improves resolution and the ability to capture features on edges and surfaces
  • Interchangeable lens with 250mm and 500mm field of view
  • Accuracy up to 0.027mm for 250mm lens and 0.050mm for 500mm lens


Fast, easy and accurate portable CMM

The FARO Gage measuring arm is an accurate 3D gauge for small parts and is an industry leader in portable CMMs. It is inexpensive, offers high accuracy levels, improves measurement consistency, reduces inspection time and generates automatic reports.

  • 1.2m (4 ft.) spherical working volume – Ideal for small parts, molds and assemblies
  • Accuracy of 0.018mm (0.0007 in.)
  • Temperature & Overload Sensors – Notifications of thermal variations and improper handling
  • Universal 3.5” Quick Mount – Offers ‘mount-it-to-where-you-make-it’ convenience
