Creaform has launched a full new R-Series suite of automated dimensional quality control solutions.
A new MetraScan-R Black robot mounted scanner, additional models of the Cube-R 3D scanning CMM and the new digital twin environment software are looking to aid manufacturers CMM productivity issues.
The new 3D Scanner features 45 blue laser lines for a high-density scanning area that takes up to 1,800,000 measurements per second and is capable of generating live meshes.
Speed doesn’t diminish accuracy in this case, with the Creaform MetraScan-R Black capable of recording 0.025 mm in shop floor conditions, regardless of environmental variations.
Designed for automated quality control applications, the R-Series 3D scanning solutions are aimed at manufacturing companies who want to increase their productivity by measuring more dimensions on more parts without compromising on accuracy.
The Cube-R leverages the power of the MetraScan-R in a high-productivity industrial measuring cell that is designed to be integrated into factories for at-line inspections.
The cell is offered in 16 configurations, as well as custom options.
The Creaform R-Series is claimed to be much faster compared to traditional CMMs, with the Cube-R providing ‘a gain in productivity and better efficiency’.
Also launched is the Creaform VXscan-R digital twin environment software module, for the fast programming of robot paths and optimised line-of-sight of the robotic system, which completes the company’s turnkey automated quality control solution suite.
“Manufacturers need to achieve fast, accurate and repeatable output—now more than ever before,” said Creaform product manager Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie.
“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 (TQC) and unprofitable recalls.”
