MetraSCAN 3D R-Series: Robot-mounted optical CMM 3D scanner

Automated measurement videoAccelerate your industrial inspection processes by bringing quality control as close to the part as possible. For companies wanting to get accurate results fast, Creaform has developed a robot-mounted optical CMM 3D scanner. This measuring system enables manufacturing companies to leverage the power of optical measurements and industrial automation directly on their production lines—and make quality control easier and more effective. In combination with industrial robots, the MetraSCAN 3D™ R-Series increases the reliability, speed and versatility of on-line inspection and quality control (QC) processes.

  • Most accurate shop floor measurement solution: volumetric accuracy of up to 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.) regardless of instabilities, vibrations, thermal variations, etc.
  • Automatic alignment: optical reflectors tracking the device in real-time allow the measurement and inspection of up to a few hundred parts per day, directly on the production line
  • Greater, extendable measurement volume: combine optical reflectors and an automated turntable for shop floor measurements without any loss of accuracy
  • With the C-Track’s dynamic referencing mode, the coordinate system can be literally “locked” onto the part being measured, thus maintaining part alignment during the entire scanning process
  • Excellent ROI: measurement errors reduced, optimized control time (full program vs partial program)
  • Compatible with conventional metrology software
