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