FARO launches European “Quest to find the Oldest Working FaroArm”
FARO, the world’s trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for 3D manufacturing, is launching a new European quest to find the oldest working FaroArm®.
FARO introduced its first device with hinged arm measurement technology approximately 35 years ago, while the first articulating measurement FaroArm intended for the industrial market dates back to the early-1990’s.
In addition to accuracy and ease-of-use, FARO’s 3D measurement technology is renowned for its reliability, robustness and durability. These characteristics have ensured that many of the company’s early FaroArms remain in regular use throughout Europe.
To celebrate the FaroArm’s famed reliability and longevity, FARO is searching for the oldest model that remains in use throughout Europe. When found, the owner will be able to swap their old model for the current and most advanced 8-Axis Faro ScanArm System with CAM2 software, completely free of charge.
To participate in the ‘Quest’, customers will need to register on FARO’s dedicated web page (https://oldest-working-faroarm.faro-europe.com/). Details required include the customers’ contact details, an image of their FaroArm in its working environment and its serial number. The winner of the prize will be announced at the FARO booth during the Control Exhibition, taking place in Stuttgart in May 2020.
The ‘Quest’, that starts on the 22nd January 2020 and finish on the 15th April 2020, is open to all European FARO customers who have purchased their FaroArm from a FARO representative or one of FARO’s official partners or distributors.
“We are excited to receive pictures of our oldest FaroArm models and discover and learn how they are still helping our customers master their most challenging metrology tasks until this day,” states Thorsten Brecht, senior director 3D Manufacturing at FARO Europe.
