FARO ScanArm

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.


FAROBLU XR: Maximum Resolution & Accuracy
This Laser Line Probe (LLP) is ideal for high-precision tasks with tight tolerances to capture data at highest accuracy and best resolution possible. Users can scan small intricate parts and fine details with 1.5 times the accuracy, improving production quality with better and more reliable data. 

FAROBLU XP: Maximum Productivity
This Laser Line Probe (LLP) offers the ability to scan anything with a balanced blend of accuracy, speed and coverage—increasing profitability and throughput with performance suitable for any application.

FAROBLU XS: Maximum Speed
This Laser Line Probe (LLP) is best for large parts or expansive surface areas when data collection speed is top priority. The extra‑wide laser stripe delivers double the coverage in a single pass, allowing users to collect data up to 2.6x faster than the xR and 1.6X faster than the xP. Fewer passes to collect data means faster results and higher productivity.

Through simple Plug and Play, users can attach any of these probes to the Quantum Max measuring arm, creating an all-in-one measurement solution: the Quantum Max ScanArm.


  • Achieve high-speed point cloud capture, high accuracy or a blend of both with three LLPs, each hot swappable and purpose built
  • Meet the needs of any application with working volumes of 2.0m, 2.5m, 3m, 3.5m and 4m.
  • Scan dark, reflective or translucent surfaces
  • Quickly and easily change probes without recalibration
  • Exclusive 8-axis Integration
