With this world’s most innovative measurement arm we can perform unparalleled part/object 3d scanning and non-contact measurements quickly and accurately.

Our experts in the reverse engineering lab will use this FARO Edge arm to:

  • Calculate geometric, dimensions and tolerances (GD and T) measurements and compare complex geometry, surfaces, and feature positions to nominal data and verify the object’s conformance to the specifications

  • Compare CAD data directly to measurements of the object to detect real-time deviations from the design, saving precious time and significant cost to our customer

  • Perform 3D Reverse Engineering by Digitizing a part or object to create its fully surfaced 3d prototype.


Measurement Range: 9 ft. (2.7m)

Volumetric Accuracy: ±.041 mm (±.0016 in.)

Single Point Repeatability: .029 mm (.0011 in.)

Laser Line Probe:

Accuracy: ±.035mm (±.0014 in.)

Repeatability: 35μm, 2σ (.0014 in.)

Effective Scan Width: Near Field 53 mm (2.09 in.)

Points per Line: 752 points/line

Scan Rate: 60 frames/second; 60fps x 752points/line = 45,120 points/sec
