8-Axis Edge FaroArm & ScanArm

Taking your FARO Edge FaroArm measurement speed and ergonomics to a greater level. The FARO 8-Axis Edge system combines the portable Edge FaroArm (or ScanArm) with a functionally integrated, yet physically separate, 8th axis.

Introducing the FaroArm series of measuring arms. They are Faro’s portable systems for 3D measurements of the physical geometric characteristics of an object in space (CMM).

They allow verification of the manufacturing quality of a product through 3D inspections, metric certifications, CAD comparison, dimensional analysis, reverse engineering, and more. With its integrated touchscreen computer and “SmartArm” technology, the Faro Edge oversimplifies the user experience with improved handling, portability, and reliability.

The 8th axis is a complete rotational axis that provides a natural extension of FaroArm capability. It plugs directly into the Edge FaroArm and results in a seamlessly integrated, high-accuracy additional axis.

Parts can be rotated in real-time relative to the Arm – meaning no difficult reaching around the object and no need to move the Arm to different locations during the measurement process.

This results in improved measuring speed, reach, and user-friendliness, offering an easy-to use solution that allows users to focus on the actual measurement and not on the measurement processes.

High Measurement Speed

  • Capturing of necessary features with only small movements of the Arm / ScanArm and reduced need to reposition the device around large objects results in up to 40% reduction in the time it takes to scan a part or assembly.

Extended Measurement Volume

  • A single device set-up allows users to reach and digitize features that  would normally require multiple device locations, or a longer-reach arm.

Ultimate in Ergonomics

  • Limiting the amount of movements of the operator around the part or the assembly allows complex and large objects to be easily and quickly digitized. The operator can focus on the measurement of the part with no worries about uncomfortably reaching around the part or assembly.

Operator Effectiveness

  • The operator is now able to focus with minimal distraction and effort on the measurement of the part since the part is seamlessly rotated to the optimum orientation.

Workspace Optimization

  • The 8-Axis Edge allows complete measurement and scanning activities to be performed within a minimal footprint. Limited space required for device placement ensures optimized usage of the available work area.
