FARO – Laser Tracker Vantage E & S 6Dof

Large-Scale, Portable, High-Accuracy 3D Measurement.”

FARO Vantage® Laser Trackers optimize workflow productivity for large-scale metrology applications including, but not limited to, assembly alignment, part and assembly inspection, machine installation and alignment.

The VantageS6 and VantageE6 deliver 6 Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) measurement capabilities via the optional 6Probe, enabling access to hidden areas and small features.

Compact and Portable – the Vantage line of laser trackers offers an array of amazing features:

  • ActiveSeek™ technology that allows the laser trackers to find and follow the target, even after the user passes behind obstructions.
  • 6DoF (6 Degrees of Freedom) Handheld 6-Probe enables the user to measure hidden areas that are not in direct line of sight.
  • High-Speed Dynamic Measurement
  • Exceptional Portability and Ruggedness

FARO’s patent-pending feature to quickly and efficiently locate and lock onto a target – allowing the Vantage to follow a moving target, even behind obstacles, and lock onto the target again when it is stable. Stereo cameras with a 50° field of view, the best in the industry, make ActiveSeek effective across a wide footprint.

Integrated Absolute Distance Measurement System (iADM)

The Laser Tracker FARO Vantage is the only one that uses one laser to measure angle and distance with iADM to ensure exceptional accuracy. Reliability is improved.
