FARO innovates in 3D Color for metrology applications

The FARO Prizm Laser Line Probe and 8-Axis Quantum ScanArm creates high resolution, color point clouds of large parts.

US: FARO, the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, construction BIM/CIM, public safety forensics and 3D machine vision solutions introduces the next generation of  Laser Line Probes (LLP), the FARO PrizmTM . PrizmTM is the first LLP available that includes the ability to scan in high resolution, 3D color.

PrizmTM is designed specifically to operate as a compact, tightly integrated solution with the FARO Quantum ScanArm arm product family and extends the FARO tradition of delivering maximum measurement consistency for both direct-to-parts contact and non-contact requirements in every working environment.

PrizmTM has certified accuracy for the most demanding metrology challenges.  The color scan allows users to view and manipulate a detail-rich, 3D color point cloud model of a part or assembly on a computer screen. This is ideally suited for molded parts where color and surface texture are an essential requirement of the complete inspection.

This introduction rounds out the best in class Laser Line Probe portfolio that also includes the FAROBluTM Laser Line Probe and provides users with the unique flexibility to select the option that best fits a specific situation or a specific project.

Best in Class Dimensional and Qualitative Inspection

This innovation enables parts and objects to be inspected for dimension and surface quality. This is ideally suited for molded parts where color and surface texture are an essential requirement of the complete inspection, or for identifying splits on stamped sheet metal not detectable with existing technologies. Fine details including texture, such as weld marks, grinding marks, sandblasting and machining patterns, and even text, can be clearly extracted for identification of key features during the inspection process. The true-to-life functionality enhances productivity by supporting inspection professionals in driving out dimensional and surface character quality issues that would otherwise slow the end-to-end the production process.

“Given our extensive experience in metrology as one of the pioneers in portable measurement arms, we understand that monochrome Laser Line Probes are considered good enough for a wide range of inspection challenges,” stated Pete Edmonds, Vice President – Factory Metrology. “However, we take our role as innovator and visionary seriously, so we are determined to look beyond ‘good enough’. With the PrizmTM Color LLP, we believe that we have reset the expectations of what ahigh-valuee portable measurement arm solution can be and should be.”
