In 2015, Faro introduced its 6DoF TrackArm solution, and is now releasing 6Probe, a fully integrated hand-held probe for probing features in hard-to-reach locations. Together, the TrackArm 6DoF and 6Probe offer a complete solution for measurement needs in sectors such as automotive, aerospace, construction, heavy equipment and shipbuilding.
The 6DoF Faro Vantage product family includes two models, the VantageE6 with an operating range of 35 m and the Vantage56 with an operating range of 80 m. Both are tested to International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards for shock, vibration and extreme thermal conditions, and are IP52 rated for dust and water resistance.
Both Vantage models include ActiveSeek functionality with wide-angle viewing, which allows users to move from one location to the next without issue. According to Faro, this functionality improves general productivity by allowing users to start the actual measurement process faster, and makes sophisticated 3D measurement accessible to all.
