The new Creaform MetraSCAN Black has been announced in a flurry of blue lasers, as it targets factory floor 3D measurements and inspections.
With 15 blue laser crosses producing 1,800,000 measurements per second, the MetraSCAN Black has reportedly four-times more resolution than the previous model.
Creaform also announced that the new Black model has increased scanning speed, done away with warm-up time and comes with ISO 17025 accredited factory calibration and accuracy to 0.025mm.
Creaform’s optical CMM scanner has been designed specifically to perform metrology-grade 3D measurements and inspections while remaining portable on the factory floor.
It has the added benefit of touch probing capability when paired with Creaform’s HandyPROBE, giving the user a complete and somewhat more streamlined inspection process.
“Manufacturers need to rely on innovative 3D measurement technologies, like the MetraSCAN 3D, in order to refine their product development and quality control processes,” explained Creaform product manager Guillaume Bull.
“This new version of the MetraSCAN 3D takes dimensional measurement speed, accuracy and versatility to a whole new level.
“We believe manufacturers will appreciate its performance within their workflows.”
The Creaform MetraSCAN is available in Black and Black|Elite guises, customers can choose from two models based on their needs: speed, part complexity, accuracy, and so on.
