Creaform has announced the latest additions to its R-Series lineup of 3D Scanning solutions, including a new MetraScan-R Black Elite HD with improved performance as well as a new edition of VXelements designed for long-term support.
The 3D scanning solutions also includes a new version of VXscan-R module specially made to accommodate custom automated 3D scanning cell layouts, while maintaining digital twin programming software.
“In the quest to gain efficiency, manufacturers require QC solutions that can adapt to their workflow and environment, while being easy to use. For better decision-making to get better quality parts, they also need fast and precise data,” said Creaform product manager Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie.
“With these latest innovations, there has never been a better time to easily move to automation.”
Creaform says that its latest MetraScan-R Black Elite HD offers an optimised field of view for increased performance levels during challenging applications, such as 3D measurements on sheet metal parts.
The product should prove useful for the automotive market, with its 69 laser lines and 3,000,000 measurements per second, the specialised 3D scanner is ideal for parts with many edges, trims, and boundaries.
The VXscan-R software module makes it possible to include the custom features of a 3D scanning CMM set-up – enclosure, robot base, turntable, and so on – for faster programming.
The long-term support version extends the period of software maintenance, while Creaform says that it will also increase software robustness and dependability by limiting the number of new feature releases.
Creaform adds that its compatibility with major 3D metrology software, off-line programming, and seamless integration within the majority of production workflows, the R-Series is an accessible option, regardless of the expertise or experience level.
