FARO ScanArm

The Ideal Contact/Non-Contact Portable Measurement System

FARO ScanArm

Features of the FARO® Laser Line Probes

The FAROBluTM Laser Line Probe HD (High Definition), the FAROBlu Laser Line Probe SD (Standard Definition) and the FARO Prizm Laser Line Probe add unparalleled non-contact measurement capabilities to the entire Quantum FaroArm product family, creating an all-in-one measurement solution: The Quantum ScanArm. This enables users to collect simple point variations with the FaroArm’s hard probe, then laser scan sections requiring more detailed data.

The FARO 8-Axis Quantum ScanArm seamlessly integrates a Quantum ScanArm with an eighth-axis, enabling users to rotate parts in real time relative to the ScanArm versus requiring the ScanArm to be reach or be moved around the part. This results in unmatched measuring speed and user-friendliness.

Companies get maximum data handling, accuracy and efficiency in one single, combined package.

FAROBlu and Prizm Laser Line Probe

The FAROBlu and FARO Prizm Laser Line Probes utilize state-of-the art technology to provide best-in-class scanning capabilities:


Blue and Green Laser

The FAROBlu Laser Line Probe leverages an optically-superior blue laser technology. The blue laser has a shorter wavelength compared to red laser and delivers improved scanning results with higher resolution thanks to its greater ability to discover smaller details in an object. The blue laser also provides a 50% reduction in speckle noise compared to a red laser. In contrast, the Prizm Laser Line Probe takes advantage of green laser technology’s ability to provide high color visual definition to deliver color scanning capabilities for high resolution color point cloud data capture and analysis.


Advanced Sensor

The FAROBlu and Prizm Laser Line Probe camera uses the most advanced CMOS technology to deliver fast frame rate (the number of times per second that the camera gathers new data on the part being scanned) of up to 300 frames per second (fps) (FAROBlu HD).


Custom Optics

The FAROBlu and Prizm Laser Line Probes boast superior, large-diameter, custom optics that collect more light and more data to deliver better accuracy and sharper and brighter images. Utilizing a greater sweet spot, they support a wider laser line width that scans a larger area, providing faster, more productive scanning.


Laser Line Width

The FAROBlu and Prizm Laser Line Probes feature laser line width of 150mm. The extensive line width scans a larger area, delivering fast and efficient scanning. Additionally, the Laser Line Probes feature solid, blue or green laser beam generated without the use of moving components which can be sensitive to vibration, potentially inducing errors in accuracy and impacting productivity by forcing repeat scans.
