FARO Technologies (Lake Mary, Fla.) has released a new version of its Laser Tracker X 3-D coordinate measuring machine (CMM), featuring FARO's XtremeADM technology. The system measures large-scale structures by bouncing a laser beam off of a handheld, mirrored probe. XtremeADM eliminates the need for an interferometer to measure distance, reportedly reducing system cost while allowing the user to perform all measurements in a single mode, rather than having to switch between multiple modes. The feature also overcomes "line of sight" issues: if a person or object comes between the laser beam and the probe, the user can relocate the beam and continue measuring, without backtracking to a stable point, as was previously necessary.
