FARO® Focus Laser Scanners

Fast, accurate and complete measurements of complex objects and buildings
Capturing the measurements of a large object or building with conventional documentation methods can take days or weeks, and even then the data might contain errors or missing details. But FARO Focus Laser Scanners create accurate, complete and photorealistic 3D images of any environment or object in just a few minutes. With their intuitive touch screen and compact design, these FARO Focus 3D scanners are as easy to operate as a digital camera — with built-in protection from dirt, dust, fog, rain and heat/cold.

Business Value of Focus Laser Scanners

Never Miss a Measurement

The comprehensive, fast, accurate capturing of everything within the Focus Laser Scanner’s line of sight means that you never have to go back to a site for missing measurements. Finalizing and viewing your 3D scan data on-site provides the confidence your teams need to know they are done with the job.

Reduce Rework and Material Waste

Knowing the exact as-built conditions of your project ensures your designs fit the first time. And monitoring construction progress regularly and frequently in 3D helps you identify issues before they become costly and delay your schedule.

Manage Large and Complex Projects with Confidence

In combination with FARO software solutions and WebShare for easy 3D data sharing, you will always know what’s happening with your projects.

Make Informed Decisions

With the information at your team’s fingertips, they’ll be equipped to make smarter decisions faster and stay ahead of any problems.

Protect Your Investment

With its unique expandability, a FARO Focus 3D Laser Scanner grows with your needs. The integrated accessory bay of the S series allows you to add new sensors or indicators to your device. And the FARO Swift extension allows you to turn your Focus into a super-fast mobile scanning system for large indoor projects.

Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Applications

Fast, Accurate As-built Capture and Modeling

Use Focus Laser Scanners to capture as-built data for building information modeling (BIM), industrial facility management and infrastructure projects. The accurate, complete data creates a strong foundation for conversions, extensions, space optimization, structural analysis and maintenance. See all as-built capture and modeling applications >

Improved Construction Quality Control

Ensure the highest quality of your construction projects with Focus Laser Scanners. Precise laser scanning throughout the building process ensures that the final structure fits design intent, minimizing risk of deformations and other problems. Also perform large-volume calculations and inspect free-form shape elements and façade components with ease. The scan data is invaluable for project supervision and collaboration across trades. See all construction quality control applications > 

Historic Preservation

Use the scanners to create 3D models of historical sites and archeological objects for reconstruction, restoration and conservation. See all historic preservation applications >

Digital Twin for Asset and Facility Management

A key component of a smart factory is its digital twin — a comprehensive 3D digital copy of the facility. Use the Focus Laser Scanners to capture the as-built data you need for asset and facility management. See all digital twin applications >

Public Safety Analytics Applications

Forensic Analysis and Pre-incident Planning

Capture every detail of an environment for developing safety systems or for investigating crime/crash scenes, reconstructing bullet paths and uncovering the cause of a fire. See all forensic analysis and pre-incident planning applications >

3D Metrology Applications

Enhanced Product Design and Engineering

Use Focus Laser Scanners to enhance the accuracy and speed of your design and engineering processes. When a product has no CAD data, simply scan it to get all the measurements you need for reverse engineering. And when manufacturing fixtures and fittings for ships, cars or aircraft, scan the complex interiors as your basis for planning conversions. See all product design and engineering applications >

More Efficient Production, Fabrication and Assembly

Rely on Focus Laser Scanners to keep production moving efficiently. You can scan complex machine components for manufacturing documentation, or use the resulting 3D CAD data and dimensional control for precise-fit off-site assembly as needed. See all production, fabrication and assembly applications >

Improved Quality Control and Inspection

Use Focus Laser Scanners for precise 3D documentation and dimensional inspection of large, complex components such as rotor blades, turbines and ship propellers. See quality control and inspection applications >
