Coventry, 8th October 2013 - FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement, imaging and realization technology, announced today it has released the new FARO Focus3D X 330 Laser Scanner.
Building on the success of the Focus3D, the new Focus3D X 330 surpasses previous models in functionality and performance. With a range almost three times greater than previous models, the Focus3D X 330 can scan objects up to 330 meters away and in direct sunlight. With its integrated GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in post-processing making it ideal for surveying based applications.
In addition, the FARO Focus3D X 330 scan quality has been increased and noise has been reduced, providing precise three dimensional models in a photo-realistic style. These advances in performance did not come at the expense of safety as the Focus3D X 330 includes a Class 1 “eye safe” laser.
“Its minimal weight, small size, touch-screen, SD-card and a battery life of 4.5 hours make the Focus3D X 330 unbeatable and easy-to-use,” said Dr. Bernd Becker, Chief Technology Strategist for the new FARO Focus3D X 330. “No other provider can offer such a technical achievement.”
With its increased range and scan quality the FARO Focus3D X 330 considerably reduces the effort involved in measuring and post-processing.
The 3D scan data can easily be imported into all commonly used software solutions for accident reconstruction
, civil engineering, construction, forensics
, industrial manufacturing and land surveying. Distance dimensions, area and volume calculations, analysis and inspection tasks and documentation can thus be carried out quickly, precisely and reliably.
