Faro Laser Scanner
Our Faro arm laser scanner offers excellent accuracy and exceptional speed. While it is nearly as accurate as our blue light inspection scanner, the Faro scanner is able to capture 600,000 data points per second. Additionally, the Faro arm is equipped with an even more accurate touch probe, which can be used to measure the most critical dimensions of your part.
Ideal for Large Parts
Equipped with Touch Probe
Great for Inspection and Reverse Engineering

Blue Light Inspection Scanner
With accuracy as low as 0.0003″ for an individual scan, blue light scanning is the most accurate technology we offer by an order of magnitude. And because structured light captures individual scans very quickly, it is less susceptible to inaccuracies due to environmental disturbances. We perform the majority of our part inspection work using our blue light scanner.
Reliable and Repeatable
Fast for Smaller Parts
Ideal for Part Inspection

White Light Scanner
Our Artec white light scanner offers excellent detail while also being our only full-color 3D scanning technology. This scanner is able to capture the appearance of your object and recreate it as a texture applied directly to the 3D model. Additionally, our white light scanner is highly portable, ideal for on-site scanning of molds and other tooling.
