The World’s Smartest 3D Measurement Platform

FARO<sup>®</sup> CAM2<sup>®</sup> Software


Integrated Measurement Solutions, Intuitive Workflows and Actionable Data 

FARO® CAM2® Software is a powerful, intuitive and application focused 3D measurement platform, designed to enable users  to efficiently fulfill their quality assurance and inspection tasks.  

CAM2 has been developed to streamline industrial metrology applications such as dimensional controls, incoming and first article inspections, part-to-CAD comparisons, assemblies and repeat part measurements.

CAM2 not only allows you to improve and increase the efficiency of your measurement routines; it also provides an effective and smooth correlation between metrology (quality assurance) and production operations, offering a powerful tool to fully control and optimize your manufacturing processes.

FARO Inside - Integrated Measurement Solutions

Developed with a single R&D team and benefiting from strong customer relationships, FARO CAM2 is the ideal solution for all organizations who want to maximize productivity, realizing the full operational potential of their FARO metrology equipment, assisted by best-in-class services and a single source of support for their FARO solutions. 

Intuitive and Easy Measurement – Guided Workflows 

FARO CAM2 satisfies the need for an intuitive, workflow-driven 3D metrology platform providing a standard set of software routines to automatically guide users through specific operations, both visually and audibly. CAM2’s best constructed workflows, graphical user interface (GUI) and intuitive commands allow any operator – independently from experience and technical know-how – to simply 1-click walk through even the more complex inspection routines.  

Reporting – Analyze, Control and Improve 

CAM2 offers reporting capabilities that allow organizations to share measurement data and results to anyone across their organization, in real-time, as required.

In addition, CAM2 delivers real-time inspection results and insightful trend analysis (Statistical Process Control, SPC) in a user-friendly set of adaptable visual reports, with statistically based graphs and results.

It provides insight to process variation and alerts which help avoid time-consuming “reworks” and costly scraps, allowing companies to improve their manufacturing processes.
