How often should a Faro arm be calibrated?

approximately every six months
More frequent calibration is recommended, approximately every six months, to ensure its accuracy and optimal performance. It is essential to understand that a portable arm needs more scrutiny than a coordinate measuring machine.

How does the Faro arm work?

Portable measurement arms determine and record the location of a probe in 3D space and report the results through software. The arm calculates the exact position of the probe at each point through embedded encoders on each axis (or joint) in the arm.

What is a Romer scale?

A Reference Card or “Romer” is a device for increasing the accuracy when reading a grid reference from a map. Made from transparent plastic, paper or other materials, they are also found on most baseplate compasses. Essentially, it is a specially marked-out ruler which matches the scale of the map in use.

How do you compensate a FARO arm?

Attach the FaroArm to your computer, go to Measure, and click Devices > Hardware Configuration > Probe Compensation to access the Compensation dialog box. Click Arm Compensation. Place a properly compensated probe firmly in the compensation cone. NOTE: Compensate the probe before you run the FaroArm compensation.
