The HandyPROBE Launches into Space! The Creaform technology will participate in assembling the Ariane 5 launcher

Lévis, May 18th, 2010 – Creaform, a world-class company in 3D technology and engineering services, is proud to announce that the HandyPROBE has found new applications in the space industry! After having successfully served the aeronautics industry since its launch, the HandyPROBE will participate in assembling the European space launcher Ariane 5, the most used and the most precise satellite launcher.

In the aeronautics industry, the HandyPROBE is already commonly used for first-part and serial manufacture quality control. For instance, many plants of the Safran group have been using the HandyPROBE technology for almost 5 years already, to their satisfaction. The most recent application was introduced in 2009, and allows to control the doors on the thrust reversers of the Airbus A320 as much as ten times faster than with a traditional CMM method, and three times faster than requested by the client in the specifications (in less than 15 minutes for about 100 control points, including set-up and take-down of the door).

Such exceptional time saving is the result of the exclusive and innovative technology developed by Creaform. This technology helps to suppress the potential for error by the operator during critical stages, and it helps to acquire a dynamic measurement of the relative position of various objects, with an emphasis on the high-precision control of the assembly procedure. The system is completely insensitive to the usual disruptions to the measurement process on a mobile platform. Thus, the HandyPROBE is much more precise in actual conditions and has even reached positioning accuracy of less than 20 µm.
