FARO® Quantum Max ScanArms

The global standard in non-contact measurement arm technology
Sometimes a part or tool is so complex, you can’t use contact probes to capture all of its measurements. But lasers do the job with exceptional speed and accuracy. In these cases, leading manufacturers rely on FARO Quantum Max ScanArms, which combine the measurement capabilities of a Quantum Max FaroArm® portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) with the non-contact functionality of a laser line probe. The Quantum Max also offers three LLPs that optimize accuracy, speed or a blend of both, depending on project need. Whichever LLP you choose, 3D ScanArms capture precise measurements in nearly any environment, from the factory floor to the field.
