3D metrology

July 2016

Creaform, a specialist in portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, has announced the latest generation of its automated inspection solution, the MetraSCAN 3D R-Series. The solution features drastically improved cycle times to further support industrial production control.


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

Along with enhanced shop-floor performance, the new MetraSCAN 3D R-Series enhancements capitalise on several application-oriented key features such as an optimised robot reach to enable rapid 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,” explained Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager, Creaform.

The MetraSCAN 3D R-Series also features new glass-protected positioning targets that can withstand harsh environmental conditions.
