As with the entire range of laser scanners from FARO, the Focus3D X 30 features a Class 1 "eye-safe" laser.

"Usability and high return on investment are at the core of FARO's Focus3D X 30 product," noted Joe Arezone, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of FARO Europe and Asia Pacific. "With its feature set and price point tailored to short-range scanning projects, it is a powerful and effective tool for customers working in challenging economic environments."
