CreaformCoordinate Measuring Machine

HandyProbe Next

Creaform HandyProbeManufacturers and production managers can use portable 3D measurement technologies to enable considerably greater flexibility and efficiency in performing quality control (QC) operations directly on the production floor. The HandyPROBE Next™ portable CMM provides measurement accuracy that is insensitive to the instabilities of any environment. Free of any rigid measurement setup, the portable CMM outperforms traditional portable CMMs on the shop floor. The C-Track optical tracker and wireless probe can be moved at any time during the measurement sequence and generate the same high-quality data.

This metrology inspection solution helps manufacturing companies eliminate inefficiencies in the manufacturing process and avoid unnecessary expenses.

HANDYPROBE BENEFITS

NEW FEATURES

  • 2X more accurate
  • Instant measurement
  • Greater volume of 16.6 m3 (586 ft3)
  • Sturdy design for shop floor hardware reliability
  • Multi-function buttons for easier interaction with the software

TRUACCURACY

  • Metrology-grade measurements: accuracy of up to 0.020 mm (0.0008 in.), high repeatability and traceable certificate
  • Dynamic referencing: optical reflectors are used to create a reference system that is “locked” to the part itself, so users can move the object any way they want during measurement
  • Volumetric accuracy of 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.) (ASME B89.4.22 standard)
  • Single point repeatability of 0.044 mm (0.0017 in.) (ASME B89.4.22 standard)
  • Accurate measurement of parts ranging from 0.2 to 10 meters (0.7 to 33 feet) in size
  • No accuracy drift over time In your quality control with the easy field calibration procedure

TRUSIMPLICITY

  • No rigid setup required: the part and the system can be moved freely at any time during measurement
  • Greater and easily extendable measurement volume
  • Automatic alignment: optical reflectors allow for repetitive inspections without realignment
  • Ergonomic, wireless probe
  • Optional 3D scanning capabilities by adding the MetraSCAN 3D
  • Multi-function buttons for easier interaction with the software
  • Short learning curve and intuitive operation

TRUPORTABILITY

  • Optimized for use on the shop floor
  • Portable CMM: the system can be easily brought wherever the part is
  • Portable CMM case: the system, tripod and accessories fit into a single, portable carrying case
  • No physical link between the probe and the system for maximum versatility

HandyProbe

(2) Based on the ASME B89.4.22 standard. The probe of the HandyPROBE Next is located within a conical socket. Individual points are measured from multiple approach directions. Each individual point measurement is analyzed as a range of deviations in X, Y, Z (value = range/2).

(3) Based on the ASME B89.4.22 standard. Performance is assessed with traceable length artefacts by measuring these at different locations and orientations within the working volume of the C-Track (value = maximum deviation).

(4) The volumetric accuracy performance of the HandyPROBE Next is dependent on the working volume in which the measurement is made: 9.1 m3 (320 ft3) or 16.6 m3 (586 ft3).

(5) The volumetric accuracy performance of the system when using a MaxSHOT 3D cannot be superior to the default volumetric accuracy performance for a given model.


The portable CMM, HandyPROBE Next, makes highly accurate measurements possible—right on the production line.

Inspection and Quality Control

  • Part-to-CAD analysis
  • First article and supplier quality inspection
  • Conformity assessment of 3D models against original parts/production tooling
  • Conformity assessment of manufactured parts against the originals
  • Alignment
