FARO Ships Laser Scanner Focus3D X 330 (It appears to be the same scanner model as the Faro Focus but shown in Blue instead of Black.) LAKE MARY, FL, Oct 8, 2013 – FARO Technologies, Inc., the world’s most trusted source for 3D measurement, imaging and realization technology, announced today it has released the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X 330.
Building on the success of the Focus 3D, the new Focus3D X 330 surpasses previous models in functionality and performance. With a range almost three times greater than previous models, the Focus3D X 330 can scan objects up to 330 meters away and in direct sunlight. With its integrated GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in post-processing making it ideal for surveying based applications.
In addition, the Focus3D X 330 scan quality has been increased and noise has been reduced, providing precise three dimensional models in a photo-realistic style. These advances in performance did not come at the expense of safety as the Focus3D X 330 includes a class 1 “eye safe” laser.
“Its minimal weight, small size, touch-screen, SD-card and a battery life of 4.5 hours make the Focus3D X 330 unbeatable and easy-to-use,” said Dr. Bernd Becker, chief technology strategist for the new Focus3D X 330. “No other provider can offer such a technical achievement.”
With its increased range and scan quality, the Focus3D X 330 considerably reduces the effort involved in measuring and post-processing. The 3D scan data can easily be imported into all commonly used software solutions for accident reconstruction, architecture, civil engineering, construction, forensics, industrial manufacturing and land surveying. Distance dimensions, area and volume calculations, analysis and inspection tasks and documentation can thus be carried out quickly, precisely and reliably.
