1. FARO Laser Tracker Vantage

FARO Laser Tracker Vantage. Laser Tracking Solution

The FARO Vantage is the most complete laser tracking solution.

It is an extremely accurate, portable coordinate measuring machine that enables you to build products, optimize processes, and deliver solutions by measuring quickly, simply and precisely. 
The Vantage is the smallest and lightest FARO Laser Tracker ever built, making it incredibly easy-to-use and transport between job sites. 
TruADM is FARO’s 5th generation patented ADM system which uses predictive algorithms to compensate for the acceleration and velocity of a moving target.
