LAKE MARY, Fla., Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FARO® (NASDAQ: FARO), the world's most trusted source for 3D measurement and imaging solutions for factory metrology, product design, construction BIM/CIM, public safety forensics and 3D solutions and services applications, announces the launch of a new addition to its Vantage Laser Tracker product line. The new VantageE includes well-proven features and capabilities such as high-speed dynamic measurement, and is affordably priced for customers who demand high performance while working with short-to-medium range applications.

The new FARO VantageE Laser Tracker is designed for short-to-medium range measurement applications of up to 25 meters. It is ideally suited for 3D measurement applications that demand the trusted, robust features that are hallmarks of FARO's Vantage Laser Tracker product line.  The FARO VantageE Laser Tracker is the industry's most affordable laser tracker, providing the ideal solution for alignment, tool building, part inspection, machine installation, reverse engineering, and manufacturing and assembly integration.

The FARO VantageE Laser Tracker is ideally suited for customers who do not require the extended measurement range that is provided by the premium Vantage solution but still demand the trusted and robust features the Vantage platform provides. This release provides customers with increased flexibility in terms of capability and pricing, dependent on their application-specific demands.

The new VantageE Laser Tracker has a range of up to 25 meters through FARO's patented, fifth-generation TruADM (Absolute Distance Meter) technology, which enables fully-dynamic measurement capabilities. Vantage Trackers are able to continuously scan and take measurements while a spherical optical probe is tracked across the surface of the part, object or assembly. If the laser beam is interrupted at any time while the probe is being moved, the user can simply and instantly reacquire the beam and continue measuring.

The VantageE provides full support for FARO's patented Super 6DoF (Degrees of Freedom) TrackArm solution, which enables a Vantage Tracker and one or more FARO ScanArms to work together to create an integrated 3D measurement system. Super 6DoF completely eliminates line-of sight challenges and significantly expands measurement range while maintaining superior accuracy.

"A number of our factory metrology customers have expressed the need for a more affordable, but feature-rich tracker that would meet their applications for short-to-mid distance measurement," stated Joe Arezone, Chief Commercial Officer of FARO. "In developing the VantageE, we quickly realized that customers would still need the accuracy of our longer-distance tracker along with the robust features that make the FARO Vantage Tracker solution ideally suited for solving real-world, everyday measurement challenges. Additionally, the VantageE is value-priced at approximately 30% less than the premium Vantage while offering many of the same features and similar accuracy."

The FARO VantageE Laser Tracker offers a cost-effective solution for applications such as quality inspection, tool-building, alignment, and reverse engineering. In contrast to using traditional measurement solutions, operators are able to complete complex 3D measurement jobs much faster, reduce downtime and scrap, and most importantly, get accurate, consistent and reportable measurement data.
