FARO® Vantage Laser Trackers

Fast, accurate measurements for large-scale applications

Measuring large parts, molds, assemblies and machines used to be a challenging, time-consuming process and often had to be performed in a special inspection area. Portable FARO Vantage Laser Trackers make on-site measurement easy and fast, reducing inspection cycle times by up to 75%. They measure 3D coordinates by tracking a target that the user moves from one point to another on the object being measured. In seconds, these measurements can be compared against nominal CAD data so teams can either make informed adjustments or move forward with confidence.
