Faro’s New Unveilings

FARO® has recently introduced the new QuantumS FaroArm®, elevating value/ performance standard for manufacturing inspection and alignment; and FocusS 70 laser scanner extending and solidifying Focus laser scanner portfolio.

Next generation FaroArm®

This introduction extends FARO leadership in value and performance in the manufacturing inspection process through best in class performance and durability, enhanced ergonomics and extreme portability.

Performance and durability

The QuantumS is certified to ISO 10360-12:2016, that unlike the various regional standards such as VDI/ VDE 2617, establishes the consistent, critical testing procedures that enable objective performance comparisons across any and all articulated arm coordinate measuring devices. Also, the QuantumS sets a new standard for ruggedness as it tests to the International Electrical Commission (IEC 60068 -2) standards for shock, vibration and temperature stress relief. Next, with the addition of the FAROBlu™ laser line probe HD, the QuantumS continues the FARO tradition of delivering maximum measurement consistency for both direct-to-parts contact and non-contact requirements in every working environment. Finally, FARO extends its leadership in improving end user productivity by enabling users to capture more, richer detail faster than any other comparable product on the market.


The advanced man-machine interface and enhanced ergonomics make the FARO QuantumS a virtual extension of the human arm, and enables up to 15% less effort and fatigue for the operator with direct, contact only units. This dramatic increase in both comfort and portability increases operator productivity by facilitating continuous use over extended periods during the workday.


QuantumS advances the concept of true portability and ensures additional floor reach by up to 40%. Advanced wireless capability ensures that the reliability of cable-free scanning and probing is comparable to scanning and probing with a cable attachment. Furthermore, the availability of dual, hot swappable batteries supports continuous operation anywhere on the factory floor without the need for external power.

“FARO takes great pride in its market leadership position in delivering a FaroArm® that is 25% more accurate than any other till date. It is our toughest FaroArm® ever and adheres to the most exacting global quality standards,” states Simon Raab, Ph.D., FARO’s President and CEO, “We continue to elevate the value/ performance standard for large scale measurement applications by combining leading edge usability, best in class performance and value driven pricing. Next generation user interaction, enhanced portability and Super 6DoF compatibility significantly improves the end user experience from both a personal comfort and productivity standpoint.”

FocusS 70 Laser Scanner

The FARO FocusS 70 is a high accuracy, short range scanner specifically designed for architecture, engineering, construction, product design and public safety-forensics professionals.

Similar to the FARO FocusM 70, the FocusS 70 delivers industrial grade performance with an exceptional price/ performance ratio. This includes an Ingress Protection (IP) Rating of 54 for use in high particulate and wet weather conditions, HDR imaging and extended temperature range. Additionally, users will continue to have unrestricted freedom of choice to leverage the software tools most beneficial to their own workflow, including FARO SCENE and 3rd party software solutions such as Autodesk ReCap®.

The FARO FocusS 70 also delivers a set of incremental, value-added functionality that makes it a perfect fit for those applications that require the short range scanning power of the FocusM 70, the next level accuracy of the FocusS 150 or FocusS 350 and the unique power of real time, on-site registration.

“We were overwhelmed by the positive response and adoption of the FocusM 70,” states Joe Arezone, Chief Commercial Officer, “That has validated our hypothesis that there would be significant enthusiasm for an affordable, short range, industrial scanner that was backed by FARO’s trusted, best-in-class quality. We have continued to keep our ears close to the ground with our customers and as a result can now offer the FocusS 70 as a higher accuracy companion to the FocusM 70 and a logical fit across the Focus Laser Scanner portfolio. FARO is uniquely positioned to address the wide variety of performance requirements across all market segments and applications that leverage 3D scanning data.”
