Faro launches portable Gage 3D CMM

By on 17 June, 2020

Faro releases its most portable 3D coordinate measurement machine.

Faro has launched its most compact iteration of its FaroArm series of 3D machine shop measurement devices.

The arms provide highly accurate inspection and 3D measurements, replacing traditional hand tools such as calipers, micrometers, and height gauges.

Faro says that such a device will be of utility when production processes are anticipated to ramp up with an anticipated economic recovery in Q3 and Q4 2020.

“When it comes to measurement equipment value; accuracy, portability, speed and affordability matter,” said Michael Carris, Ph.D., Vice President of Product Marketing at Faro.

“Too often machine shops rely on expensive and hard-to-use fixed CMMs that take up valuable floor space or a multitude of hand tools that slow down the process. The Gage eliminates these inefficiencies. As a result, inspection bottlenecks are greatly reduced, measurement accuracy is improved, and operator variability is significantly minimised.”

Faro says that its new Gage arm has 20 percent more reach than its previous generation and is compatible with its line of metrology software.
