Lake Mary, Florida – Faro Technologies Inc. has released a 3D portable coordinate measurement machine (CMM), the Faro Gage. For small and medium-sized businesses performing high-accuracy tasks, the gage is an intuitive, ergonomic, and versatile articulated portable FaroArm, enabling machine shops to perform demanding 3D inspections quickly.
The all-in-one-solution reduces calibration costs and minimizes clutter, replacing traditional hand tools such as calipers, micrometers, and height gages, while providing 20% more reach than the previous-generation Gage arm. Lightweight and portable but with the precision of a lab instrument and the ruggedness of a shop floor device, the Gage sets up in seconds, reduces inspection time, and delivers quality results with flexibility, resulting in increased speed and productivity.
A universal quick mount ensures compatibility with a variety of mounting options that allows it to be set it up anywhere, including on-machine. A simple 2-button design, 6-point articulation and built-in counterbalance deliver ease of use and fatigue-free operation. Its compact design makes the product lightweight and easy to transport. The Gage is compatible with Faro’s full line of metrology software, including CAM2 Probing contact measurement.
