LAKE MARY, Florida, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

--Highest-accuracy portable inspection tool faster and easier to use--

FARO(R) Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: FARO), a global leader for 3D Metrology, 
AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction), and Public Safety Analytics, 
today announced its next generation Vantage Laser Tracker 6 Degrees of Freedom 
(6DoF) Probe. The new 6Probe offers exceptional portability and is compatible 
with FARO VantageS6 and VantageE6 Laser Trackers, enabling users to build, 
inspect and measure products faster and with greater accuracy.

The 6Probe is a cost-effective 6DoF solution that meets the dynamic 
measurement, speed, and accuracy requirements of the most challenging 
industrial applications. With kinematic self-identifying styli, users can now 
change probing tips quickly and measure without any recalibration and also 
measure hidden areas outside of the tracker's line of sight, with wider 
acceptance angles. The result is an advanced tool upgrade designed to enhance 
productivity and efficiency. In fact, the typical user of the new 6Probe can 
now save at least 30 minutes of time on any given workday.

"The next generation Vantage Laser Tracker 6DoF Probe extends maximum 
measurement consistency and reliability in a variety of working environments, 
delivering best-in-class performance through faster and easier probing than 
previous models," said Leo Martinez, FARO Product Marketing Manager. "With 
Super 6DoF and conventional 6DoF probing, FARO offers the industry's most 
comprehensive 6DoF solutions available." 

6DoF and standard probing are enhanced by FARO ActiveSeek(TM), a feature to 
automatically locate and follow the active target. FARO trackers support the 
patented Super 6DoF TrackArm solution, which allows the Vantage and one or more 
FARO ScanArms to work together to create an integrated contact and noncontact 
3D measurement system for large-volume measurement. With a range of up to 60 
meters (with a 4-meter reach), Super 6DoF eliminates line-of-sight challenges 
and expands measurement range while maintaining superior accuracy. 

The Vantage platforms offer comprehensive, large-volume 3D measurement up to 80 
meters, significantly streamlining processes and reducing inspection cycle 
times while ensuring complete confidence in the results. The Laser Trackers 
maximize 6DoF measurement capabilities via the optional 6Probe, enabling 
precise measurement of hidden areas and small features.
