Creaform tackles automated inspection with new MetraSCAN 3D R-Series

Completely re-engineered, the new robot-mounted 3D scanner accelerates non-contact dimensional quality control in manufacturing and production environments

Lévis, Québec,  June 15, 2016 –  Creaform, the worldwide leader in  portable 3D measurement solutions and  engineering services, today announced the latest generation of its automated inspection solution, the MetraSCAN 3D R-Series, which features drastically improved cycle times to further support industrial production control.

With built-in seven laser crosses, the system can now pick up to 480,000 measurements/second on complex surfaces with high reflectivity, providing faster data acquisition than ever before. Attuned to the needs and requirements of high-volume manufacturing operations, the  robot-mounted optical-based 3D scanners seamlessly integrate within any working environments and without impeding the production workflow.

“By extending our optical-based 3D scanning technology to automated quality control processes, Creaform meets the market’s call for turnkey inspection solutions that can be seamlessly integrated right into the manufacturing stage,” explained Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager at Creaform. “Along with enhanced shop-floor performance, the new MetraSCAN 3D R-Series enhancements capitalize on several  application-oriented key features,such as an  optimized robot reach to enable fast measurements of large parts with complex geometries. Its  small shop-floor footprint and shop-floor-ready accessories provide easy control of the scanner parameters for maximum operator safety. Along with TRUaccuracy, it is also compatible with a turntable. This advancement in automated 3D metrology is a big step forward in informed manufacturing and production, and underscores Creaform’s core values: versatility, flexibility and ease of use.”

In addition to its rugged new design, the MetraSCAN 3D R-Series also features new glass-protected positioning targets that can withstand harsh environmental conditions and ensure overall improved durability in shop-floor environments, such as airborne dust or dirt, that could impact product lifecycle and require unnecessary and repetitive calibrations.

The MetraSCAN 3D R-Series is now available for ordering.  More informationis available through local Creaform representatives and the company’s worldwide network of resellers.

Creaform’s MetraSCAN 3D R-Series, along with its new quality control solutions, will be featured at  Automatica, at Messe München in Munich, Germany, in all A4, stand 111, June 21–24.
