LAKE MARY, Fla., March 25 /CNW/ -- FARO Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:
FARO), the world market leader in portable computer-aided measurement arm and
laser tracker sales, today announced that it has developed a Super Mobile
Laser Scanner Kit.
"Nearly every application requires a laser scanner to be repositioned in
order to get a comprehensive view," FARO President and CEO Jay Freeland said.
"The new Super Mobile Kit makes scanning faster and more productive by
enabling our customers to take it anywhere -- whether they're hiking through
forests or rough terrain like in civil engineering, tunnels and mines,
forensic scenes or archaeological excavations."
The FARO Laser Scanner LS is a portable, computerized measurement device
that scans, digitally recreates and records all of an object or area's
dimensions, creating what looks like a "photograph" on the computer screen -
but in 3-D. The captured data can be used to create a digital model for
inspection, reverse-engineering, CAD-to-part comparison, factory planning, or
investigations for industries ranging from power, process and piping to
forensics, surveying and historical preservation.
The Super Mobile Laser Scanner Kit capitalizes on the FARO LS' compact
design. The Kit includes:
- A carbon-fiber tripod, for a super-sturdy, yet light weight setup of
the Laser Scanner from 69 cm to 180 cm
- New Wi-Fi/WLAN Scanner Connection enables users to control scanning
from their PDA, mobile phone, laptop or other Internet-equipped
devices, eliminating dependence on heavy laptops with limited battery
- A scanner-based web server, which gives scanning control to as many as
different users as needed - without additional license fees
- The Laser Scanner Rucksack (back pack) enables the user to conveniently
load and carry the Laser Scanner and the carbon-fiber tripod over long
distances or confined spaces
"With the Super Mobile Kit, FARO offers its customers a major advancement
in ease of use, mobility and professional handling," Dr. Bernd-Dietmar Becker,
FARO's Director for Marketing & Product Management for Laser Scanning, said.
"The Wi-Fi/WLAN minimizes cables, which makes the FARO LS simpler to use,
faster to set up, safer on the plant floor, and maintains the integrity of
crimes scenes and archaeological sites."
