FARO's New Fusion FaroArm Blends Higher Accuracy, Lower Cost



    SINGAPORE, Oct. 18 /CNW/ -- FARO Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:   FARO), the
world market leader in portable computer-aided measurement arms and laser
tracker sales, announced the release of the Fusion FaroArm. The new device
blends styling cues of the Company's Quantum FaroArm, but with a dramatically
lower price and up to 15-percent higher accuracy than the Titanium Series it
replaces.
    "Using technological advances we achieved when developing the Quantum, we
were able to create a new entry-level model with .0014-inch (0.036 mm)
accuracy and offer it at a competitive market price," FARO President and CEO
Jay Freeland said. "High precision at this price point is unheard of, and
fulfills a sizable market demand."
    Designed for manufacturers who want in-process measurement, reverse-
engineering capabilities and the ergonomics of the flagship Platinum FaroArm,
the Fusion's accuracy and lightweight construction mean that shop floor
personnel now have an even more affordable, portable solution for their
measurement needs.
    To operate, users simply guide the Arm's touch-probe along the surface of
the object to be measured. The Fusion's laptop computer simultaneously
illustrates the 3-D measurements on-screen and records all of the data. It
creates a 3-D "blueprint" of a part or machine components, making it an all-
in-one portable tool for performing inspections, tool certification, CAD-to-
Part analysis, or reverse engineering.
    "For manufacturers that want to make their products and processes the
best in the world, there isn't another portable coordinate measurement machine
[CMM] on the market that combines the accuracy, durability, technology and
cost-effectiveness of the Fusion," Freeland said.
    
    The new Fusion FaroArm will be available for shipment in November 2007.
