It delivers up to a 25% improved system accuracy, compared to the previous generation. Furthermore, productivity is enhanced with the addition of FAROBlu Laser Line Probe HD that incorporates advanced blue laser technology and rapid scanning of up to 600,000 points per second.

The Faro Design ScanArm 2.0 is now available in three arm lengths - 2.5, 3.5 and 4 m and includes the option of dual, hot-swappable batteries that enable continuous operation.

Enhanced ergonomics and a 25% overall weight reduction support less operator fatigue that, combined with improved manoeuvrability, significantly increases productivity by allowing continuous use over extended periods during the workday.

The Design ScanArm 2.0 enables a new level of efficiency with integration of a kinematic intelligent probe system for projects that require contact measurement. This system includes a toolless quick release for fast connect/disconnect and allows operators to quickly transition from contact to non-contact projects, without needing to spend any significant additional time and effort to switch out or recalibrate probes.

“In 2016, FARO made a strategic decision that our combination of technology and unique understanding of the needs of design engineers positioned us to facilitate significantly better efficiency in the product design workflow” states Thorsten Brecht, senior director - product design vertical. “The initial Design ScanArm validated our thinking and we developed the next generation ScanArm® based on those key learnings with more flexibility, higher accuracy and improved, user-centric ergonomics”.
