FARO® Quantum Max ScanArms

The global standard in non-contact measurement arm technology


Sometimes a part or tool is so complex, you can’t use contact probes to capture all of its measurements. But lasers do the job with exceptional speed and accuracy. In these cases, leading manufacturers rely on FARO Quantum Max ScanArms, which combine the measurement capabilities of a Quantum Max FaroArm® portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) with the non-contact functionality of a laser line probe. The Quantum Max also offers three LLPs that optimize accuracy, speed or a blend of both, depending on project need. Whichever LLP you choose, 3D ScanArms capture precise measurements in nearly any environment, from the factory floor to the field.

3 Purpose-Built LLPs

Now the tradition continues with the all-new Quantum Max ScanArm and its three hot-swappable FAROBlu® LLPs that meet any measurement need.
With options to dramatically increase the scanning speed or resolution, getting the job done as quickly and precisely as possible has never been easier.
With maximum flexibility, extended arm reach and a redesigned end effector with dual kinematic LLP mounts, value and productivity is maximized by over 30%.
The Quantum Max features the fastest, most detailed scanning available on the market today, accelerating project completion time while enhancing overall productivity.


Maximum Versatility

The new Quantum Max offers 2 times the versatility from previous models. Dual kinematic seats allow for hard probe and LLP interchangeable mounting positions to easily move the LLP from top to front mount, enabling greater access to small spaces
or hard to reach areas without the need to recalibrate. The quick release handle also offers dynamic holding options.




Maximum Performance

Three FaroArm models offer basic, standard, and premium performance options—available in various working volumes from 2.0m to 4.0m. Improved rigidity and stability deliver optimized accuracy
and repeatability with superior performance while maintaining shop-hardened ruggedness for use
in the harshest factory environments. The new 2.0m working volume arm delivers the best accuracy in its size category.


Maximum Reach

Each FaroArm model comes with up to 25% longer reach, offering more comfortable articulation for better extension over and around larger objects positioned within its specified working volume.


Maximize

value and productivity by over
30%


Combined with the FARO exclusive 8-Axis Max rotary worktable, the need to relocate or reposition the device is virtually eliminated—and inspections can be completed in a fraction of the time.


The right LLP is not always a “one size fits all” choice. Sometimes the fastest speed is needed to get the job done quickly. Sometimes the highest accuracy and resolution possible is needed instead. And
sometimes, a trade-off of both is preferred. With the Quantum Max, choosing between these options is now seamless. Three unique models help boost productivity collectively or individually. All LLPs come with the exclusive FARO Continuous Light Rectifications (CLR) scanning technology, providing users with the highest quality scan data possible on dark, translucent, and reflective surfaces.


Quantum Max LLPs

With the next-gen Quantum Max, getting the inspection job done as quickly and precisely as possible has never been easier when using multiple LLPs that
can be changed in seconds, with no need for recalibration so inspection can continue, virtually uninterrupted.






SmartFactory Ready

FARO CAM2® Software, a powerful 3D measurement platform designed to efficiently complete quality assurance and inspection tasks, is perfectly suited to manage repeat inspection routines with live-trend and statistical process control (SPC) analysis. When combined with the Quantum Max, CAM2’s Repeat Part Management feature allows guided inspection routines to be pre-programmed into the software.
Every operator can now perform the exact same inspection routine, thus minimizing variability and maximizing repeatability. Data records are digitally stored, analyzed, and maintained so trends can be identified and appropriate actions are taken when parts begin to deviate from their nominal tolerances.
