Creaform Launches a Productivity Station and Autocalibration Kit for Its R-Series Product Line, Delivering the Fastest Dimensional Automated Inspection Solution on the Market

Newly updated MetraSCAN 3D R-Series solution delivers best productivity performance in its class for industrial quality control applications

Lévis, Québec, February 6, 2018 —  Creaform, a worldwide leader in accurate portable  3D measurement solutions and  engineering services, has launched the R-Series Productivity Station and the R-Series Autocalibration Kit. Both are key upgrades to its robotic metrology dimensional measurement solution, which offers an efficient alternative to traditional shop-floor CMMs.

The  MetraSCAN 3D R-Series solution enables manufacturing companies to combine both optical measurements and industrial automation, to ensure reliability and increase inspection cycles. The solution provides actionable results with a smaller factory footprint, facilitating integration into any factory.

“The major mechanical and software upgrades to the R-Series product line allow operators to run data acquisition, while simultaneously analyzing previously acquired data to maximize throughput,” says Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager at Creaform. “Self-calibration limits the need for human involvement, ensuring higher throughput and 24/7 operation.”

Key features and benefits of the MetraSCAN 3D R-Series product line

Designed for shop-floor measurement applications, the R-Series solution includes the following key components:

  • Automatic field calibration procedure: No accuracy drift over time and continuous operation;
  • Shop floor reliability: Industrial components (industrial-grade tool changer, computers and touch screens; NEMA 12 certification; fully robotized calibration; among others.);
  • Metrology-grade measurements: Accuracy up to 0.030 mm, resolution of up to 0.050 mm, high repeatability and traceable certificate;

“Automated quality control has been one of our driving forces since 2013, Creaform is now fully braced to support a large range of customer needs in terms of industrial automated quality control,” adds Marco St-Pierre, Division Vice-President Technology and Innovation at Creaform.

The R-Series solution will make its first appearance at  Control in Stuttgart, Germany, April 24–27.
