FARO’s Photon Laser Scanner wins Best-in-Class award

Post by Oliver Buerkler » Thu Nov 27, 2008 3:57 pm

Coventry, UK/ 1st October 2008 – FARO’s Photon Laser Scanner has earned Design News Magazine’s Golden Mousetrap Award for excellence in innovation and creativity in product design.

The Photon, released in March, was selected as the Best Product in the Rapid Prototyping category for its ability to scan large objects while maintaining a high degree of accuracy. The Photon can produce a 3D image of anything within a range of 0.6 to 76.6 metres. The image data plugs directly into a vast array of prototyping and modelling software, including Geomagic, Polyworks and Rapidform.

For more than two decades, the Design News awards the best and brightest in the engineering community with a prize. Based on their expertise in each technology category, Design News editors reviewed the entries, narrowing the selections to 70 finalists and 20 winners. The FARO Laser ScanArm and Quantum FaroArm were also selected as finalists in the Testing and Measurement category.

“We are very proud to receive such an important award from Design News,” said Dr. Bernd-Dietmar Becker, FARO’s Director of Laser Scanner Marketing & Product Management. “FARO is pleased to be recognised as one of the innovators in this emerging field. Large scale imaging for concept design and analysis is becoming more and more important amongst engineers.”

“Our Golden Mousetrap Awards give innovators the recognition they justly deserve,” said Design News editor-in-chief John Dodge. “We extend our sincerest congratulations to the winners and finalists.”

The full list of winners was reported in the 22nd September 2008 issue of Design News Magazine, as well as their online edition .
