FARO® Digi-Cube® Redefines Value for Laser Marking

High Performance Digital Scan Head at an Analog Price

Lake Mary, FL, June 28, 2018 – FARO® (NASDAQ:FARO), the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, 3D machine vision, construction BIM, public safety forensics and product design applications introduces the highest value combination of price and performance for a digital laser scan head with the FARO® Digi-Cube® (

Digi-Cube® is a high precision, high scan rate, digital servo controlled scan head that is easily integrated into a variety of laser scanning products to optimize productivity and output quality. It is specifically designed to enable best in class outcomes for exacting applications such as high accuracy laser marking, scribing and engraving, laser 3D printing, photovoltaic production and welding.

In a demanding supply chain environment where optimizing the performance-to-cost ratio is critical to both success and survival, Digi-Cube® resets the baseline of the entire industry. It offers, as validated by exhaustive side by side performance benchmarking and available published technical specifications, comparable or better performance than alternative analog laser scan head products across a variety of key parameters at up to 30% lower price points (  

Additionally, beyond other performance improvements, Digi-Cube® offers better real world marking results relative to similar hybrid, digitally controlled products at half, or 50%, of the price,

Simplified Implementation and Compatibility

  • The Digi-Cube® laser scan head is designed to the industry standard XY2-100 command protocol

which assures easy OEM integration and plug-and-play replacement of existing analog servo control scan heads.

Extended Service Life

  • Self-Tuning Technology automatically compensates for mechanical wear, extending service life and eliminating what has been repeatedly identified as a major issue with traditional analog servo filters.

The Digi-Cube® is available for ordering now with 48-hour shipping and includes a one (1) year standard FARO warranty. Also, it is supported by the best in class FARO Customer Service network, so that when an issue arises there is easy access to a FARO expert.

“We are excited about the new level of value that we are able to offer across an extensive segment of laser marking applications,” stated Mark Longmuir, Senior Director, Laser Processing. “Our extensive experience and understanding of the pain points for key players in this space indicated that there was an unfulfilled need for a laser scan head with high digital performance but at an analog level price point. With Digi-Cube®, we are confident that we have addressed this gap in a proactive, value-added manner.”
