Inspect to the digital model

Portable CMMs from FARO simplify the implementation of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), and provide efficient, easy-to-use solutions for CAD-based 3D inspections and nominal comparisons.

Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing

Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing

Portable CMMs from FARO simplify the implementation of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) and provide efficient, easy-to-use solutions for CAD-based 3D inspections and nominal comparisons.

The workflow begins with using FARO’s contact and non-contact measuring tools such as the FaroArm, FARO ScanArm, FARO Laser Tracker or FARO Imager to take precise measurements of a part or assembly.

To the CAD model specifications

To the CAD model specifications

Once the measurements are taken, the operator can use FARO’s software solutions to compare the part or assembly to the specifications in the CAD model. CAD overlays are used to check complex geometry against design specifications to evaluate deviations in surface form and ensure every part is produced to an exacting tolerance.

FARO Edge

FARO ScanArm®

The FARO ScanArm combines all of the advantages of the Quantum line of FaroArms – including the world’s only 8-Axis portable metrology arm solution – with the FAROBlu or Prizm Color hand held laser scanner to deliver unparalleled non-contact measurement capabilities. Unlike other scanning systems, the ScanArm’s hard probe and the Laser Line Probe can digitize interchangeably without having to remove either component. Users can accurately measure prismatic features with the hard probe, then laser scan sections requiring larger volumes of data — all in one simple tool.

  • FAROBlu HD LLP laser technology delivers improved scanning results with higher speed and resolution
  • FAROBlu SD LLP delivers cost-effective standard resolution scanning solution
  • Prizm Color Lase Line Probe scans parts in color, and full, uncompromised measurement resolution
  • 8-Axis ScanArm offers comprehensive solution enabling part to be rotated in real-time to simplify measurement and scanning activities
