  • Rating12345

Topcon Europe Positioning and FARO Europe GmbH & Co. KG have signed a strategic partnership agreement which will allow the distribution of the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D in most European countries, the Middle East and Africa.

Product manager Sander Jongeleen said, “Topcon Europe Positioning is delighted to make this announcement today, the availability of the Focus3D will complement our existing high-accuracy long-range GLS-1500 scanner.”

Jongeleen said, “The Focus3D has been designed for close range laser scanning, and is equipped with a very intuitive user interface. Sitting alongside our GLS-1500, the Focus3D will allow our distribution network to address every segment of the terrestrial scanning market place.”

With a measurement update rate of nearly one million points per second, an accuracy of 2mm and a small, lightweight form factor, the Focus3D is further equipped with a compass and height sensor as well as a dual axis compensator to aid in setting up and point cloud registration.

In addition to data exchange with FARO’s SCENE software, Topcon’s ScanMaster desktop management solution can be used for editing and manipulating Focus3D data.

David Homewood, vice president of sales, FARO Europe said, “The partnership represents a fantastic opportunity for Faro to build a long term sales channel with TOPCON Europe, one of the largest positioning companies in the market place as the demand for quick, accurate, low cost laser scanning continues to gain momentum. We are very excited by this partnership and looking forward to building a long term business relationship together.”

The distribution agreement takes effect immediately and the FARO Focus3D is available through Topcon Europe Positioning now.
