FARO<sup>®</sup> Cobalt Structured Light Scanner

Unlimited Multi-Imager Scanning Configurations

The FARO Cobalt Array Imager is a metrology-grade non-contact scanner which captures millions of high resolution 3D coordinate measurements in seconds. The Cobalt Array Imager is equipped with dedicated on-board processors – an industry first. The smart sensor allows unique multi-imager array configurations which expand the scan area to deliver rapid, automated and comprehensive inspection; dramatically improving cycle time. The actionable data is then displayed as simple go/no-go result or an easy-to-read dimensional deviation color map.

The Cobalt Array Imager is designed for the factory floor so it can be used anywhere inspection is needed, thereby aligning to lean manufacturing principles of eliminating unnecessary movements and time. Cobalt delivers fast and consistent measurements for dimensional inspection and reverse engineering applications on parts, assemblies, and tooling. Cobalt’s versatility supports a variety of deployment options including tripod, rotary table, robot, industrial inspection cells and multiple imager arrays.

Cobalt, which is available in two resolution models, both offering interchangeable fields of view, combines speed, accuracy, flexibility and portability making it an ideal solution for your demanding metrology needs. At an affordable price point providing unparalleled value, the Cobalt is a simple-to-use solution ideal for maximizing productivity and automating workflows for near-line and in-line inspection applications, anywhere in the factory.
