Factory Robo-Imager, factory automation solution

Factory Robo-Imager is a system that combines the FARO Factory Array Imager with a collaborative-robot to provide highly adaptable, safe and automated in- and near-line inspection solutions.

This product line pairs the FARO Factory Array Imager, with a human-collaborative robot in two configurations: either a fixed installation or turnkey mobile station.

The Robo-Imager fixed installation can be mounted anywhere in the factory and deliver automated measurements while the Robo-Imager Mobile is the same Robo-Imager mounted on an instrumented cart that can be quickly moved to wherever measurement tasks are required.

The FARO Factory Array Imager is a new metrology-grade 3D sensor with blue light technology, capable of quickly capturing high-resolution measurement data for dimensional inspection on parts, assemblies and tools.  When coupled with a collaborative-robot, the Robo-Imager provides a turnkey solution to automate the inspection and verification of parts at any location in the production environment.

“The manufacturing world is quickly evolving, with smart factories, LEAN thinking, and emphasis on automation, driving the need to shift quality control and inspection processes closer to the production line,” stated Dr. Simon Raab, President and CEO of FARO Technologies.  “To that end, FARO is committed to developing new metrology solutions for Factory Automation.  The Robo-Imager does just that, moving metrology from the QC lab to the shop floor for improved productivity.”
