8-Axis Compatibility with the Edge FaroArm and ScanArm

Edge8axis.jpg

Overview

Faster and more efficient 3D measurement is now available with the new FARO® 8-Axis – a seamless integration of your existing Edge FaroArm®/ScanArm® with an eighth-axis part rotation axis – enabling uninterrupted data capture via real-time rotation of what’s being measured/scanned.

Adding the 8-Axis to your existing FaroArm eliminates difficulty reaching around an object or stopping your measurement process to relocate the Arm, allowing for:

  • Faster data collection
  • Extended measurement volume
  • Ultimate ergonomics and ease-of-use
  • Reduced damage-risk to delicate objects

For existing Edge FaroArm and ScanArm users, FARO offers two 8-Axis kits. Contact your FARO sales representative for more information and pricing.

Requirements:

  • Edge model revision 3.6 or newer
  • Firmware 711.18 or newer
