FARO Introduces Focus3D Laser Scanner for 3-D Documentation

Improves on automatic registration process and reduces post-processing work

Published: Friday, September 30, 2011 - 10:05

(FARO: Lake Mary, FL) -- FARO Technologies Inc., a leading provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, has developed improvements to its laser scanner, the Focus3D. Complete with new features that enhance registration and remote functionality, this newest Focus3D represents FARO’s most powerful laser scanning solution to date.

Already the smallest and most advanced laser scanner on the market, the Focus3D now includes the new Multi-Sensor hardware feature. It incorporates a compass and height sensor to complement the device’s existing dual-axis compensator. The new sensors define height and orientation against a set point for each scan, improving the automatic registration process and reducing post-processing work.

Users can now perform and download scans remotely with the new WLAN remote control included in each new Focus3D. The device may also be equipped with one of three application-specific adaptors that allow the Focus3D to be mounted to any fixed post or utilized in mobile or super-fast tunnel scanning applications.

SCENE WebShare 4.9, FARO’s Internet sharing browser, will provide measurement tools and added information via Documentation Objects. Scans shared using WebShare can be directly viewed on the browser or analyzed with a variety of mapping functions.

“We’ve included new features with this latest generation of the Focus3D that we think will make our customers’ lives much easier,” says FARO CEO, Jay Freeland. “By including new functionality in an already very strong offering, we believe FARO has the most competitive laser scanner on the market.”

More information on the FARO Focus3D is available at www.faro.com/focus/us.
