Short-range Measurements, Basic Speed


Short-range Measurements, Basic Speed

The ultra-portable FocusM 70 is the most cost-effective starting point for capturing fast, straightforward and accurate measurements of construction sites, complex structures and production and supply facilities.


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.

Focus Laser Scanner Features

Features Common to All Focus Laser Scanners

Exceptional Accuracy and Range (up to 350m)

Achieve accuracy with a combination of the most advanced sensor technologies.

Great Adaptability

Use Focus Laser Scanners indoors and outdoors, in bright sunlight or complete darkness.

Sealed, Rugged Design

Ingress Protection (IP) and Class 54 environmental ratings ensure you can use the device in your environment, even in a wide range of temperatures.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photo Overlay

Ensure lifelike visualization and superior color detail, in spite of challenging lighting situations.

Multiple Sensors

Rely on sensors including GPS, compass, height and dual axis compensator.

Scanner Control

Control the scanner with a touch screen and remotely with any mobile device via WLAN.

Retake Photos Option

Retake on a select basis, without the need to redo entire scans.

Scan Group Feature

Rescan multiple areas at a higher resolution.

Light Weight and Small Size

Use the scanners anywhere.

Digital Hashing Function

Add encrypted security to all raw scans.

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.

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.

Historic Preservation

Use the scanners to create 3D models of historical sites and archeological objects for reconstruction, restoration and conservation.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
