FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO), the world's leading provider of portable measurement and imaging solutions, announces that it has enhanced its FARO Gage product line. These hardware and software improvements will simplify users' measurement workflow and enhance the product's portability.
The new FARO Gage, with its fresh and elegant design, is now equipped with Bluetooth, solidifying its position as the truly portable, cost-effective, 3D measurement solution for the machine shop. Moreover, it features all new measurement software that makes daily measuring tasks even easier due to its new intuitive user interface.
Thanks to the popular Bluetooth wireless technology, users can now inspect and transmit data up to 10m (30 feet) away - even through walls - without the need for cables. Bluetooth is the right technology for FARO Gage applications and produces faster set up, extended battery life, and lower power consumption.
"The fully portable FARO Gage was designed with the production floor in mind. It produces accurate results to speed through the toughest measurement challenges," said Markus Grau, FARO Gage Product Manager at FARO.
Furthermore, the FARO Gage measurement software has been completely enhanced. Renamed CAM2® Gage, it features a much simpler and more intuitive user interface that makes it the ideal entry-level inspection software. The CAM2® Gage software is FARO's CAM2 solution for measuring basic geometry and building dimensions. It allows users to quickly measure geometric features on parts and easily report the dimensions they need to control. Once users have measured one complete part, they can then repeat the same measurements on the next part with no additional effort. Users can also add images to their inspection plan and hand it over to any operator.
"We believe that these enhancements will simplify the workflow of the FARO Gage users and increase their productivity. This simplified user interface eliminates the learning curve that is often encountered by customers upgrading from hand tools to the more powerful and precise FARO Gage 3D Measurement systems. Operators will be able to teach themselves how to use the software, eliminating the need for measurement experts in the manufacturing environment," stated Antonio Carvalho, Director of Software Product Management at FARO.
The new FARO Gage and CAM2 Gage will be showcased at the Control Fair in Stuttgart at FARO's stand #3404, hall 3 from 3rd to 6th May.
