Pinpoint measurement

An entry-level, lighter-weight, lower-cost version of its Quantum FaroArm high-precision measuring device called the Fusion FaroArm has been introduced by Faro Technologies Inc. (Lake Mary, FL). Users guide the arm?s touch-probe along the surface of an object and the Fusion?s laptop simultaneously illustrates the 3D measurements and records all of the data, creating a 3D blueprint of the measured part or component. It facilitates inspections, tool certification, CAD-to-part analysis, or reverse engineering. It?s reportedly accurate to ±0.0014 inch.?CK
