Here are some highlighted resources that may help you begin your journey in both understanding and embracing quality inspection tools and solutions:
Understanding Portable Measurement Arms
The world relies on measurement to operate, and for hundreds of years this has been accomplished by the tools of the time — hand tools such as calipers and micrometers, which provided basic measurements but struggled with more complex... Read More>>
On-Machine Inspection Using 3D Scanning
Conventional measurement tools such as height gauges, calipers and fixed CMMs were slow and not getting the job done for complicated parts with compound curves. In the past they had considered portable measurement arms... Read More>>
Portable vs. Fixed Coordinate Measuring Machines
When is it better to use a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) over a fixed CMM, and vice versa? Your decision on whether to invest in a fixed versus portable CMM will be based on a composite of answers to questions... Read More>>

8-Axis QuantumS FaroArm Techsheet
The FARO 8-Axis QuantumS FaroArm offers a comprehensive, contact/non-contact metrology solution, allowing users to significantly speed up and simplify their measurement and scanning activities... Read More>>
Introducing the 8-Axis QuantumS FaroArm
The 8-Axis Quantum Arm is a revolution in portable measurement arm inspection, integrating an eighth axis for faster and larger measurement volume with less user fatigue and device placements... Watch Video>>
It can be difficult for educators to remain up to date on industry and technology innovations. FARO is seeking to streamline this in relation to metrology products by providing HTEC education partners unique access to FARO training material and student certifications, as well as ongoing engagement at local regional conferences.
Train the Trainer
FARO is committed to partnering with HAAS Educators to equip them with the instructional curriculum, guides, and presentations to ensure the successful transfer of learning and skills to their students. Are you interested in hosting a TTT event? FARO will provide an instructor and equipment, HTEC Educators provide the venue and allow neighboring HTEC Educators to join the open session. Here you will receive instruction on FARO products and curriculum. We will not only train you to use the equipment, but we will provide coaching on how to use the training materials. Upon completion of a Train the Trainer session, the educator will be provided access to instructional guides, pdf training manuals, and access to our FARO Academy site for On-demand tutorials and courses.
