FARO Technologies Inc. (Lake Mary, Fla., U.S.A.) introduces the Advantage FaroArm and the FARO Advantage Tracker, its most inexpensive CMMs, starting at only $19,900 and $69,900 (USD), respectively. Designed for manufacturers who do not need the 0.0002-inch precision of the company's Platinum FaroArm or the 70.1m/230-ft range of its Tracker SI, the Advantage FaroArm comes ready to measure with a mounting plate, one 3 mm and two 6 mm Zircon hard probes, a custom-fitted case and a one-year warranty, and can be customized to client needs. The FARO Advantage Tracker makes laser measurement affordable for a greater number of facilities, featuring the same remote control, Voice Command System and mounting flexibility as its top-of-the-line counterpart, with a 50.3m/165-ft range and accuracy within 72 microns at 6.1m/20 ft.
