FARO® Cobalt Array Imager

High Resolution Array Imagers
for Quality Inspection and Factory Automation Applications

Multiple imagers. Any configuration. One computer.

FARO Cobalt Array Imager: The FARO automated metrology solution that provides sophisticated in-process measurement, minimizing integration and infrastructure costs.

The Cobalt Array Imager is equipped with dedicated on-board processors – an industry first. The smart sensor allows unique multi-imager array configurations which expand the 3D scan area to deliver rapid, automated and comprehensive inspection. The actionable data is then displayed as a simple go/no-go result or an easy-to-read dimensional deviation color map. An unlimited number of 3D imagers can be placed in array configurations virtually anywhere in a manufacturing process – all scanning simultaneously and controlled by a single computer.

Save Time and Money: Whether deployed in multiple imager array configurations, mounted on a robot, or tripod mounted, the Cobalt Array Imager simultaneously improves throughput and quality by reducing inspection cycle times.

Versatile and Flexible Deployment Options

  • Multiple Imager Array
    With Multiple Imager Arrays, an unlimited number of Cobalt sensors can be used to simultaneously gather data on an object that is being inspected.

    This expands the effective field of view which, in turn, reduces inspection time and increases productivity

    For dedicated inspections, a multiple imager array of Cobalt sensors will often be faster, more easily integrated, more affordable, more accurate, and easier to maintain than a robot-based imager or laser line systems currently on the market.
