The Global Standard in Contact & Non-contact Measurement Arm Technology

Sometimes a part or tool is so complex, you can’t use contact probes to capture all of its measurements. But lasers do the job with exceptional speed and accuracy. In these cases, leading manufacturers rely on the FARO Quantum Max ScanArms, which combine the measurement capabilities of a Quantum Max FaroArm® portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) with the non-contact functionality of a laser line probe. The Quantum Max also offers three LLPs that optimize accuracy, speed or a blend of both, depending on project need. Whichever LLP you choose, 3D ScanArms capture precise measurements in nearly any environment, from the factory floor to the field.

Maximum Versatility

The new Quantum Max FaroArm® offers 2 times the versatility of previous models. Dual kinematic seats allow for hard probe and LLP interchangeable mounting positions to easily move the LLP from top to front mount, enabling greater access to small spaces or hard-to-reach areas without the need to recalibrate. The quick-release handle also offers dynamic holding options.



Extended Reach: 8-Axis Arm Allows for Faster Measuring with Less Effort

Read about the latest revolution in 3D Portable Measurement Arms – the FARO 8-Axis Arm – which offers an additional rotational axis that plugs directly into the FaroArm® product family and results in a seamlessly integrated, high-accuracy additional axis that requires no additional setup time or effort. Measurement time is reduced by up to 40% versus 7-axis scanning.

FARO Arm at Work for Metrology and 3D Inspection

Maximum Performance

Three FaroArm® models offer basic, standard, and premium performance options—available in various working volumes from 2.0m to 4.0m. Improved rigidity and stability deliver optimized accuracy and repeatability with superior performance while maintaining shop-hardened ruggedness for use in the harshest factory environments. The new 2.0m working volume arm delivers the best accuracy in its size category.


Maximum Reach

Each Quantum Max FaroArm® model comes with up to 25% longer reach, offering more comfortable articulation for a better extension over and around larger objects positioned within its specified working volume. Combined with the FARO exclusive 8-Axis Max rotary worktable, the need to relocate or reposition the device is virtually eliminated—and inspections can be completed in a fraction of the time.
