Creaform Announces R-Series Suite of Automated Dimensional Quality Control Solutions

Resolve CMM productivity issues with MetraSCAN-R BLACK|Elite, CUBE-R 3D, and digital twin environment software

Published: Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 11:00

(Creaform: Lévis, Canada) -- Creaform, a worldwide leader in 3D measurement solutions, announces the latest release in its R-Series lineup, including the new MetraSCAN-R BLACK|Elite as well as the addition of four different models in the CUBE-R 3D scanning measuring machine. Creaform also launched the brand-new VXscan-RTM digital twin environment software module, which completes the company’s turnkey automated quality control solution suite.

Fastest, most versatile automated quality control solution in the market

Blazing-fast cycle times: Featuring 45 blue laser lines for a high-density scanning area that takes up to 1,800,000 measurements per second and generates live meshes

More accurate and repeatable results: High accuracy of 0.025 mm (0.001 in.) in shop floor conditions, regardless of instabilities, vibrations, and thermal variations

High resolution: A measurement resolution of 0.025 mm (0.0009 in.) that generates highly detailed scans regardless of the surface, trim, geometric feature, or type of sheet metal 

New digital twin environment software: VXscan-R enables users of all levels to easily and quickly program robot paths and optimize the line of sight of the robotic system.

Maximum versatility: Captures highly reliable 3D measurement data on shiny surfaces, objects with variations in reflectivity, different part sizes, and a wide variety of surface geometries

Configurable and customizable portfolio: The CUBE-R, which is offered in 16 configurations, and the MetraSCAN-R BLACK|Elite can be integrated into a custom measuring cell built according to client’s specific needs. Options include different types of safety enclosures, payloads, and asset protection configurations.

Operational simplicity: Creaform’s automated quality control solutions can be used by professionals who have little metrology knowledge. The MetraSCAN-R BLACK|Elite is compatible with major metrology software, enabling seamless integration within any type of production workflow.

“Manufacturers need to achieve fast, accurate, and repeatable output—now more than ever before,” explains Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, product manager at Creaform. “With Creaform’s automated quality control solutions, manufacturers can increase their productivity. By detecting and addressing quality issues faster based on statistical analyses, corrective measures can be more proactively implemented to mitigate total quality costs and unprofitable recalls.”
