FARO ScanArm

The ideal contact/non-contact portable measurement system.


Features of the FARO® Quantum ScanArm HD

The FARO Quantum ScanArm HD adds unparalleled non-contact measurement capabilities to your FaroArm. The ScanArm is a seven-axis contact/non-contact measurement system with a fully-integrated laser scanner. Combined with the best-in-class FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD (High Definition), the QuantumS and QuantumM ScanArm® HD enable users to collect simple point variations with the FaroArm’s hard probe, then laser scan sections requiring larger volumes of data.

Get maximum data handling, accuracy, and efficiency in one combined package.

FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD

The FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD utilizes state-of-the art technology to provide best-in-class scanning capabilities:

Blue laser

The FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD leverages an optically-superior blue laser technology. The blue laser has a shorter wavelength, which delivers improved scanning results with higher resolution thanks to its greater ability to discover smaller detail in an object. The blue laser also provides a 50% reduction in speckle noise compared to red laser.

Advanced sensor

The FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD camera uses the most advanced CMOS technology to deliver fast frame rate (the number of times per second that the camera gathers new data on the part being scanned) of up to 300 frames per second (fps).

Custom optics

The FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD boasts superior, large-diameter, custom optics that collect more light and more data to deliver better accuracy and sharper and brighter images. Utilizing a greater sweet spot, it supports a wider laser line width that scans a larger area, providing faster, more productive scanning.

Laser line width

The FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD features laser line width of 150mm. The extensive line width scans a larger area, delivering fast and efficient scanning. Additionally, the Laser Line Probe HD features a solid, blue laser beam generated without the use of moving components which can be sensitive to vibration, potentially inducing errors in accuracy and impacting productivity by forcing repeat scans.



The FARO QuantumS ScanArm HD delivers best-in-class performance for both hard probing or laser scanning applications.

Combined with the newest FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD, the QuantumS ScanArm HD allows you to scan 5X faster than previous generations and provides unparalleled non-contact capabilities, offering high-speed point-cloud capture, superior resolution and high accuracy — all in a compact and easy-to-use system.


The FARO QuantumM ScanArm HD also includes the FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD, the next generation of blue laser technology. QuantumM ScanArm HD offers a high-end scanning solution at a competitive price, so that more manufacturers than ever can take advantage of this technology.
