Creaform Inaugurates U.S. Automated Quality Control Demonstration Center

Complete CUBE-R station now available for benchmarks and products demonstration

Published: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 21:06

(Creaform: Levis, PQ, Canada) -- Creaform, a worldwide leader in portable and automated 3D measurement solutions, last week inaugurated its new U.S. demonstration and benchmark center for its 3D inspection cell, the CUBE-R. As a powerful and turnkey automated inspection solution, the CUBE-R helps manufacturers and suppliers quickly detect assembly issues during production to mitigate costly quality problems after product delivery. Because it is a fast, reliable, and efficient alternative to traditional coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), the CUBE-R can be used for a wide variety of applications, such as sheet metal, casting, and composite part inspections.

The new demonstration center will operate at Alabama’s Robotics Technology Park (RTP). The RTP is a collaboration between the state of Alabama, the Alabama community college system, Alabama Industrial Development Training (AIDT), and robotics industry leaders across the nation. It includes three individual training facilities that target specific industry needs. Furthermore, the RTP is also an accredited test facility for the American Welding Society.

“More and more manufacturers in the automotive industry are requiring that their Tier 1 suppliers provide inspection analyses prior to receiving part shipments,” explains Brad Kaiser, automated quality control manager at Creaform. “There is also an increasing demand for end-to-end part traceability to correct issues quickly and prove product quality. Thanks to the CUBE-R, suppliers can leverage the power of automated inspections and sophisticated optical 3D measurements to cater to manufacturers’ inspection and quality needs.”

With the new partnership, the RTP will use the CUBE-R measurement cell to enhance its R&D and training service offering to its growing clientele. Meanwhile, Creaform will be able show clients the potential the CUBE-R automated 3D scanning CMM could have in their production operations.

“This new demonstration center, which follows on the heels of the inauguration of our first CUBE-R demonstration center, gives our U.S. and Latin American clients unprecedented access to the fastest and most accurate turnkey 3D scanning CMM on the market,” adds Jarrod Schmidt, Creaform’s national sales manager, USA.
