US: FARO Technologies announces the launch of FARO Early Adopter (EA) program, under which, selected customers who are faced with accelerating technology cycles can benefit from early access to new FARO products. The participants will also get the opportunity to work one-on-one with FARO Labs engineers on future product improvements and new technologies. Interested customers can now pre-register for the program under www.faro.com/innovator.
The scan-localizer mounts under the FARO Focus3D laser scanner and makes continuous 2D scans to provide detailed registration information, removing the need for reference targets in overlap zones by users executing interior Building Information Modeling (BIM) scans. While moving the FARO Focus3D laser scanner from one location to another, the scan localizer tracks the laser scanner's location and the 3D scans are effortlessly stitched together to provide a complete interior building scan. This one-of-a-kind solution provides 3D scanning customers with efficiency gains of up to 2-5x over alternative solutions for BIM as-built capture applications.
Early Adopter Program subscribers in select countries can order the FARO BIM Scan Localizer now in advance of a rollout to our broader customer base in the second half of the year. "Our top priority remains a passionate commitment to innovative and disruptive research and development," stated Dr. Simon Raab, president and CEO of FARO Technologies. "To further increase the value of these investments to our customers, we have decided to provide them early and accelerated access to disruptive products and ultimately provide the customers in our various vertical markets with unique productivity solutions."
