Tackle your trickiest tasks with the new FARO® 8-Axis FaroArm®and ScanArm – a seamless integration of our Arms with an eighth-axis point, enabling uninterrupted data capture via real-time rotation of what’s being measured and/or scanned.

The 8-Axis Arm eliminates difficulty reaching around an object or stopping your measurement process to relocate the Arm, allowing for:

  • Faster data collection
  • Extended measurement volume
  • Ultimate ergonomics and ease-of-use
  • Reduced damage-risk to delicate objects

This new solution promises to send the Arm market “spinning” with its launch under the FARO Quantum Family and the FARO Design ScanArm 2.0.

FARO 8-Axis Quantum FaroArm & ScanArm

Manufacturers can now meet their most demanding quality specifications on parts and assemblies with a new level of measurement speed and ergonomics. This allows users to focus on the actual measurement, not on the difficulties of capturing it.

FARO 8-Axis Design ScanArm 2.0


From 3D modeling to reverse engineering and more, the product design process is now significantly accelerated with the 8-axis rotation. No more “arm-gymnastics” or interruption in the process, supporting a much more complete scan deliverable.
