The ScanArm ES is the latest advancement in FARO's Laser Line scanning 
sensors, featuring Enhanced Scanning Technology (EST). EST is the combination 
of multiple hardware and software improvements designed to boost performance 
by improving the ability to scan challenging surfaces. Materials with dark or 
reflective optical qualities can now be scanned with less effort and without 
the need for sprays or surface coatings. 
"Scanning is becoming a big part of the metrology world and the improved 
performance of the ScanArm ES minimizes the challenges of capturing data on 
surfaces with less than ideal optical qualities," said Orlando Perez, FARO's 
Director of Product Management -- FaroArm/ScanArm. 
New and improved filtering algorithms automatically adjust and optimize the 
scanning parameters for plastic, metal, or a variety of surface finishes and 
colors. The new HDR (High Dynamic Range) Mode of the ScanArm ES lets users 
scan materials with contrasting colors (i.e. black and white) simultaneously. 
"Our customers expect quality and innovation from our products and the new 
ScanArm ES delivers," said Jay Freeland, President and CEO. 
The FARO Edge ScanArm ES is the ideal tool for product development, 
inspection, and quality control and offers capabilities such as point cloud 
comparison with CAD, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modeling. 
Mr. Perez concluded, "The ScanArm ES packs a big punch with the smallest form 
factor on portable arms in the industry and at an excellent price to 
performance value."
