Vantage Laser Tracker
FARO has spent more than 30 years bringing excellence into the marketplace. Through our wide array of products, and the innovations that have come with them, the 3D imaging landscape has been changed forever. FARO’s portfolio of portable coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) includes measuring arms, laser trackers, 3D laser scanners, and 3D imagers. These portable CMMs can be used for both contact and non-contact measurement.
The FARO Vantage Laser Tracker is an extremely accurate, portable coordinate measuring machine that enables you to build products, optimize processes, and deliver solutions by measuring more quickly, simply, and precisely than previously possible. Replacing conventional tools such as tape measures, piano wire, plumb bobs, and even theodolites – the Vantage Laser Tracker is a more accurate and reliable portable 3D measurement tool that allows you to streamline your processes and gain confidence in your measurement results.
The FARO Laser Tracker Vantage is the most advanced, state-of-the-art FARO Laser Tracker ever introduced. Using extensive knowledge of real-world measurement applications, FARO was able to develop the most accurate laser tracker available while still making it simple and easy to use and maintain. The Vantage also features a longer measurement range, lighter weight, and contains the fastest, most sophisticated distance measuring system: Agile Absolute Distance Meter (aADM).
The Vantage is the only laser tracker available with MultiView technology – a patent pending fully-integrated two-camera system. This technology allows you to automatically point to a specific target that may be difficult to reach. It is also beneficial for automated assembly applications where the variation from part to part can cause the target to not be in its normal position. In these cases MultiView quickly and efficiently locates that target.
Thanks to FARO’s exclusive SmartFind technology, you now have a faster and easier way of measuring around complex tooling and structures where tracking the SMR between locations is difficult or impossible. When you break or lose the Vantage’s beam while in MultiView’s field of view, you can simply gesture to the Laser Tracker and it will aim the beam back to your target.
The Vantage’s TruADM technology provides the accuracy you need for everyday, real-world applications where the differences between absolute distance measurement (ADM) and interferometer (IFM)-based measurement are, for the most part, insignificant. TruADM is FARO’s 5th generation patented ADM system. Unlike technologies that require an IFM system to assist their ADM system, FARO’s TruADM simplifies the process.
TruADM uses patented predictive algorithms to compensate for the acceleration and velocity of a moving target. This results in a technologically advanced system, where the ADM is so fast that dynamic measurements can be taken by scanning with the SMR. With FARO Laser Trackers you have the ability to scan complex surfaces, flatness of planes and diameters of circles. You can quickly and easily characterize the form of features to better understand the geometry of your parts and make informed decisions.
TriMap is a patent pending encoder system exclusive to the FARO Vantage. It features a three read head system that is self-mapping, enabling faster service time in more convenient locations to ensure you are maximizing the use of your Laser Tracker and getting the most from your investment.
The Vantage’s new in-line optic system is designed for longer range (up to 80 meters). This allows for measurement of even larger objects from one location.
Fewer device moves mean measurement jobs are completed in even less time.
Embracing the latest standards in wireless technology (Wireless-N), the Vantage’s integrated Wi-Fi means there is no need to plug the Laser Tracker into the laptop computer. You can simply measure anywhere within the wireless network’s range, enhancing the unit’s portability and convenience.
