Faro Trusted by the Best, Faro has a Portable CMM Arm for any Application

For more than 35 years, FARO has designed, developed and delivered the most trusted metrology arm technology in the market. FARO is recognized as the world’s most innovative portable CMM manufacturer. The 8-Axis Quantum FaroArm  V2 and ScanArm deliver the best in class, as the world’s only 8-Axis 3D measuring arm solution, with available non-contact laser scanning capabilities. 

As the go-to CMM for virtually any application, the FaroArm is available in three different models with various system integrations. These include QuantumS V2, QuantumM V2, and QuantumE V2; with several laser line probe options. It is also available as part of a combined Super 6DoF TrackArm solution, when integrated with a FARO Vantage laser tracker system, for large complex inspection applications.

As the first portable CMM arm in the market to be internationally certified to ISO 10360-12 standards, FARO has the ideal inspection tool solution, when accuracy is a must! Designed with consistency and reliability in mind, the FARO 3D measuring arm performs in a wide range of work environments including extreme temperatures, shop floors, and mobile environments.

QuantumS V2

This flagship arm establishes a new industry performance bar and extends our tradition of maximum measurement consistency and reliability in every working environment. It delivers best-in-class performance for both hard probing and laser scanning applications. The portable CMM helps manufacturers stay ahead of their competitors in an increasingly global manufacturing marketplace, by empowering better quality assurance and ensuring maximum customer confidence in their products and processes.

QuantumM V2

The reference standard CMM for companies looking for a robust, reliable factory or shop-floor inspection solution with an excellent price/performance ratio. It has been developed for organizations that want to extend their manufacturing performance, reduce scrap and waste, and improve their production efficiencies through high-end quality inspection technology.

QuantumE V2

This is our entry-level portable coordinate measurement machine for organizations looking for a cost-effective factory inspection solution. Reliable and robust, this portable CMM enables manufacturers to have full confidence in their quality assurance processes and ensure high quality production.

When a Laser Line Probe (LLP) is attached to a FaroArm, it becomes a ScanArm, capable of delivering up to 600K metrology points per second.


Combined with the top-of-the-line FAROBlu Laser Line Probe, the Quantum CMM family provides unparalleled non-contact scanning capabilities, offering high-speed point cloud capture, superior resolution and high accuracy.

Prizm Color LLP

When used in combination with the Prizm Laser Line Probe, a Quantum CMM delivers uncompromising levels of performance for all applications requiring accurate color point cloud data capture. The Prizm is the world’s only color laser line probe for portable measurement arms.

8-Axis Scanning Platform

An industry first, the integrated 8-Axis rotary scanning platform decreases scan time up to 40%, while maintaining accuracy. Rotate the part to you, with the ultimate CMM system available today. The 8-Axis unit is available with all Quantum models.

As the first portable CMM arm in the market to be internationally certified to ISO 10360 standards, we are the inspection tool solution, when accuracy is a must! Designed with consistency and reliability in mind, the FARO 3D measuring arm will perform in a wide range of work environments; including extreme temperatures, shop floors, and mobile environments.

    Laser Line Probes

    • Blue Laser Scanning – The Quantum line of metrology measurement arms can be deployed with the FAROBlu® Laser Line Probe, the optically-superior, next generation of blue laser technology. FAROBlu enables 5X faster scanning, including complex, dark, and reflective materials. Available in standard and high definition.
    • Color Laser Scanning – The Quantum line of metrology measurement arms can also be used in conjunction with the FARO Prizm™ Color Laser Line Probe, delivering color scanning capabilities for high resolution color point cloud data capture and analysis.

    8-Axis Scanning

    • The Industry’s first – Integrated rotary scanning system, provides an additional 8th scanning axis for a whole new level of metrology measurement solutions.
    • Faster scanning – With no need to move around an object to scan it, simply rotate the platform as you probe/scan, for up to 40% faster scan time and less fatigue.
    • Ultimate in ergonomics –The operator can focus on the measurement of the part with no worries about uncomfortably reaching around the part or assembly.
    • Extended measurement volume – A single device set-up allows users to reach and digitize features that would normally require multiple device locations, or a longer-reach arm.
