Trevor Murcko – FARO Arm Sr. Account Manager
FARO was founded in 1982 by Simon Raab and Greg Fraser who met while completing their PhD work at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. After two years of development, FARO launched three medical/surgical products based on its articulated arm measurement technology in 1984, 1986, and 1988, respectively. The Company moved from Montreal to Lake Mary, Florida in 1990, and shortly after that was asked to develop a larger, more robust version of its technology for use as a portable quality control tool for manufacturers.
By 1994, FARO had completely transitioned from medical markets to the much larger worldwide industrial manufacturing market. On the basis of strong sales, profit growth, and the large underserved market, FARO went public in 1997 and its shares began trading on the NASDAQ exchange under the symbol FARO. FARO acquired four technologies in 1998, 2002, 2005, and 2008 to expand its product offering, broaden its worldwide distribution, and expand its product lines into laser-based inspection technology.

FARO Arm FARO ScanArm
Close-up with deviation labels
Report is automatically-generated….with part views and all data in multiple formats
And remember….all of this is captured as an inspection program…even FASTER for next part!
For the ultimate in inspection, we can laser-scan the casting or pattern!
We scan and compare it (completely) to the CAD model! From this we get a more complete view of how this part deviates from the perfect CAD model.
With one click, we can place individual deviation points as well
Again, nearly all of this process can be automated! Scan the part and hit “GO”
We can also cross-section laser-scan data for 2D dimensioning.
We use the FARO ScanArm to scan the casting/pattern and then process the data from a point-cloud to a polygon model into a finished CAD model
Or, we can cross-section the scan and export the curves for modeling in native CAD packages (SolidWorks, Inventor, Pro-E, etc)
Thank you for your time. Please contact me if you have any questions or require further information.
