FARO Cobalt Array Imager

Factory Cobalt 3D Imager enables custom configurations to improve productivity

The FARO Cobalt Array 3D Imager is a metrology-grade non-contact scanner which utilizes blue light technology to capture millions of high resolution 3D coordinate measurements in seconds. The smart sensor allows unique multi-imager array configurations enabling industrial manufacturers to significantly improve productivity and operations in a way never before possible.

It delivers fast and consistent measurements for dimensional inspection and reverse engineering applications.

Compact and lightweight, Cobalt is easy to use across multiple applications. The combination of speed, accuracy, flexibility and portability makes Cobalt an ideal solution for your demanding metrology needs.



  • Multiple Imager Arrays - Expand the field of view and increase data capturing speed by flexibly deploying multiple Cobalt units

  • On-Board Processing - Delivers fast, reliable performance, and easy multi-unit integration

  • High Resolution - For inspections where precision is critical for capturing fine details, features, and edges

  • High Dynamic Range - Easily handles complex parts with dark surfaces, light surfaces, different colors, textures and reflectivity

  • Automatic Exposure - Applies optimal exposure settings to ensure the best possible data for every situation

  • Stereo Cameras - Ensure high accuracy and stability and enable self-monitoring

  • Enhanced Stereo Mode - Maximizes coverage area in each scan and shortens inspection time

  • Interchangeable Lenses - Provide flexibility for multiple fields of view

  • Blue Light Technology - Enhances ability to measure dark and reflective surfaces in variable lighting conditions

  • CAM2 Measure 10 Software - Provides the tools required to operate Cobalt and analyze scanned data
