Quantum Max ScanArms

The global standard in non-contact measurement arm technology

The Next Generation ScanArm

The all-new Quantum Max ScanArm and its three hot-swappable FAROBlu® LLPs that meet any measurement need. With options to dramatically increase the scanning speed or resolution, getting the job done as quickly and precisely as possible has never been easier. With maximum flexibility, extended arm reach and a redesigned end effector with dual kinematic LLP mounts, value and productivity is maximized by over 30%. The Quantum Max features the fastest, most detailed scanning available on the market today, accelerating project completion time while enhancing overall productivity. The right LLP is not always a “one size fits all” choice. Sometimes the fastest speed is needed to get the job done quickly. Sometimes the highest accuracy and resolution possible is needed instead. And sometimes, a trade-off of both is preferred. With the Quantum Max, choosing between these options is now seamless. Three unique models help boost productivity collectively or individually. All LLPs come with the exclusive FARO Continuous Light Rectifications (CLR) scanning technology, providing users with the highest quality scan data possible on dark, translucent, and reflective surfaces.

ScanArms By Performance Level


Maximum Performance

QuantumS is the flagship measurement arm, delivering premium accuracy and performance. QuantumM provides the global standard in portable metrology and boasts an ideal price/performance ratio, well suited for factory inspection tasks. QuantumE offers excellent performance at a competitive price and ensures high-quality production.

Maximum Resolution & Accuracy

This Laser Line Probe (LLP) is ideal for high-precision tasks with tight tolerances to capture data at highest accuracy and best resolution possible. Users can scan small intricate parts and fine details with 1.5 times the accuracy, improving production quality with better and more reliable data.

Maximum Productivity

This Laser Line Probe (LLP) offers the ability to scan anything with a balanced blend of accuracy, speed and coverage—increasing profitability and throughput with performance suitable for any application.

Maximum Speed

This Laser Line Probe (LLP) is best for large parts or expansive surface areas when data collection speed is top priority. The extra‑wide laser stripe delivers double the coverage in a single pass, allowing users to collect data up to 2.6x faster than the xR and 1.6X faster than the xP. Fewer passes to collect data means faster results and higher productivity.

8-Axis Scanning Platform: Faster Scanning with Any Quantum V2 ScanArm

An industry first, the integrated 8-axis rotary scanning platform decreases scan time by up to 40%, while maintaining accuracy. The platform is available with all ScanArm models; select the 8-Axis QuantumS ScanArm, 8-Axis QuantumM ScanArm or the 8-Axis QuantumE ScanArm.
