Creaform Announces Major Design and Performance Upgrade for its New MetraSCAN 3D Laser Scanner

LÉVIS, Quebec, April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

New version 12X faster can tackle black, multicolored and shiny surfaces with metrology accuracy for applications directly on the shop floor 

Creaform [ ], the worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions [ ] and engineering services [ ], has unveiled its new 3D scanner for shop-floor operation [ ], the MetraSCAN 3D. Re-engineered to address increasing manufacturing quality standards, it offers the best possible combination of accuracy, speed and flexibility for shop-floor 3D scanning needs.

In addition, the MetraSCAN 3D [ ] is very intuitive and easy to use, ensuring short learning curves and operation by any level of user. Enhancements include:

- 1.5X more accurate: Volumetric accuracy of 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.) regardless of
environment instabilities  
- Fastest 3D scanner on the market: Features the highest measurement rate among all
laser scanners with 480,000 measurements/second-12 times faster than the previous
- New light, sturdy design for shop-floor hardware reliability: Offers enhanced user
experience as well as profitable time and cost benefits for operators  
- Available in 350 and 750 models-and both in Standard and Elite version: Users can
choose the speed and accuracy matching their requirements  

Thanks to TRUaccuracy, the MetraSCAN 3D's optical-based data acquisition process provides measurement accuracy for small to large parts and assemblies that are insensitive to the instabilities of the environment. Efficient on black, multicolored and shiny surfaces, the system helps manufacturers to quickly address potential quality control issues at any stage of the production cycle, regardless of part complexity and material.

"Finding a versatile and portable measurement solution that maintains the same level of performance in busy manufacturing environments can be a tough challenge for quality control managers and production operators," explains Marco St-Pierre, Vice President, Innovation and Technologies. "With a strong focus on our customers' application needs, our goal is to make our optical CMM 3D scanner the new face of shop-floor quality control."

For more in-depth quality control procedures, users can add single-point measurements with the new HandyPROBE Next portable CMM [ ] , which, along with the MetraSCAN 3D, is compatible with VXinspect, Creaform's dimensional inspection software [ ] .

Creaform's quality control solutions will be showcased at CONTROL 2016 [ ], Germany, in hall 5, stand 5108, April 26-29.
