FARO® Focus Laser Scanners

Capture accurate and complete measurements with confidence

Capturing the measurements of a large building, facility, in complex environment or crash/crime scene with conventional documentation methods can take days or weeks, and even then, the data might contain errors or missing details. But the FARO Focus Premium and FARO Focus Core create accurate, complete and photorealistic 3D representations of any environment or object in just a few minutes. Both the Focus Premium and Focus Core are easy to operate and offer built-in protection from dirt, dust, fog, rain and heat/ cold.

And, for best on-site data capture, Focus Premium connects with the new FARO Stream app, bridging FARO hardware to the FARO Sphere cloud environment. Pre-registration scans are fed directly into the cloud, so jobs can be done more efficiently — feedback is captured and processed as you work.

Combined with FARO’s companion products — Sphere and the Stream app — Focus Premium (and Focus Core as an optional feature) deliver better data faster. They enable reduced time to decision while streamlining efficiencies to meet the demands of today’s increasingly remote, digital workforce.

Never Miss a Measurement: The comprehensive, fast, accurate capturing of everything within the Focus Premium’s Laser Scanner’s line of sight ensures that you never have to go back to a site for missing measurements. Pre-registering 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 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 (as part of Sphere) 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.

Adapt As Needed: With its unique expandability, a FARO Focus Laser Scanner grows with your needs. The integrated accessory bay 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.

End the Speed-Accuracy Tradeoff: For too long those in the precision measurement industry have had to contend with the speed-accuracy tradeoff. The faster scans were taken, the greater their point cloud accuracy diminished. Slow down speed in favor of accuracy and critical time — and potential business — was lost. With Hybrid Reality Capture, Powered by Flash Technology the speed-accuracy tradeoff (SAT) has essentially been solved. By employing this technology users can anticipate up to 50% scan times savings and a reduction in per-project costs.

Scan large-scale projects with Ease: Thanks to the enhanced scanning speed that Flash Technology enables, large-volume projects for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction and public safety on-scene applications has never been easier, providing scans in less than 30 seconds. And thanks to proprietary smart upscaling algorithms, full-color scans look more crisp than the same resolution scans with traditional methods.

Scan more in less time: With Flash, users can save up to 2.5 days of scanning for projects that require five scanning days. This saved time allows users to consider taking additional scans that they might not have taken under slower scanning systems, ensuring improved on-site productivity, even more predictable accuracy, and all of that achieved with state-of-the-art colorized visual clarity at an affordable price.

Super-High Color Resolution: The latest color technology enables the Focus Premium to capture scans with up to 266 megapixel color information.

Two-Year warranty: Competitive service means maximizing the life of this product while reducing the total cost of ownership throughout the device’s lifespan. Two years allows for maximum flexibility and the piece of mind knowing that any repairs or defective parts will be replaced.

Software Compatibility: Process your Focus Laser Scanner point cloud data with any software tool that fits your workflow, including FARO software solutions and third-party software such as Autodesk® ReCap™.

Multiple Point Clouds, Multiple Devices: The new Focus is also designed to work seamlessly with the FARO Freestyle 2 Handheld Scanner, thanks to its “Snap-In” feature. Save the time that is required for multiple scanner positions when it comes to scanning complex environments/structures, equipment or tight spaces. Snap-in enables the user to seamlessly add data starting from a Focus point cloud by using it as a reference for missing data from such hard-to-scan locations, including areas in shadow and objects with irregular geometries.

Up to 50% faster scan times: With the Flash Technology add-on and required PanoCam, a typical scan takes less than 30 seconds and can save up to 2.5 days of scanning for projects that require five scanning days.

PanoCam and Scanner Combo for Peak Performance: Flash Technology is a revolution in how large-volume projects will be scanned, both for architecture and engineering and public safety applications. Now, there is no longer a need to sacrifice speed for accuracy and accuracy for speed.

It is a best-of-both-world’s innovation that will improve on-site productivity and ensure predictable accuracy on each and every project or forensic investigation.
