The FARO TrackArm is a portable, computerized measurement device that creates a 3-D “blueprint” of large objects and parts by combining the 230-foot range of the FARO Laser Tracker with the flexible reach of the FaroArm. As the user guides a mirrored target over the object’s entire surface, the Tracker emits a laser beam that is reflected back from the target, allowing the system’s laptop computer to simultaneously draw and record all of its 3-D measurements. For measurements outside the Tracker’s line of sight – even around corners and inside parts – the user guides the FaroArm’s tip over the obstructed areas in order to capture the dimensions seamlessly within the same measurement file as the Tracker data. Engineers and designers use the data to reverse-engineer, improve or create new parts and products – or improve how they’re made. Quality control personnel use it to verify that their parts are made correctly, and, if not, where they need to be corrected. The TrackArm’s portability and combined technology allow users to increase production efficiency while decreasing time-to-market, scrap, and re-work costs by measuring on the production shop floor, design room, or anywhere it’s convenient – without the hassles of separate, incompatible measurement systems. The FARO TrackArm goes beyond the reach of any other portable measurement device.
