Creaform MetraSCAN 3D-R – Automated CMM

For Integrated Automated Quality Control Projects

MetraSCAN 3D-R – Automated 3D Scanning System

The MetraSCAN 3D-R is a powerful robot-mounted optical scanner that can be integrated into factory automation projects. Unlike existing solutions, this innovative robotized 3D scanner is the only one that features TRUaccuracy for automated quality control applications. Our 3D laser scanner enables manufacturing companies to harness the power of optical measurements and industrial automation. It is a fast, reliable, and versatile solution that does not force users to compromise on measurement accuracy of quality control processes on production lines. The industrial 3D measurement scanner optimizes production cycle and throughput resulting in better product quality.

MetraSCAN 3D-R Benefits

Key Features and Benefits

  • High productivity: Performs inspection up to hundreds of parts a day (even on complex surfaces)
  • Multitasking: Optimizes production cycle and throughput by offering a simultaneous operation of data acquisition and analysis to get a continuous and uninterrupted measurement flow
  • Automatic field calibration procedure: No accuracy drift over time and continuous operation
  • Robust industrial design: Adapted for shop-floor conditions and environments

TRUaccuracy

  • Metrology-grade measurements: Accuracy of up to 0.030 mm (0.0012 in), resolution of up to 0.050 mm (0.0020 in), high repeatability and traceable certificate
  • Volumetric accuracy: 0.064 mm (0.0025 in)
  • Dynamic referencing: Optical reflectors are used to create a reference system that is “locked” to the part. The system enables the part to be moved and eliminates the impact of vibrations on the measurement process and results
  • Part size range: Parts from 0.3 m to 10 m (0.7 ft to 33 ft)
  • Automatic field calibration procedure: No accuracy drift over time


TRUsimplicity

  • Simple user interface: Designed to minimize operator interaction and help perform automatic inspection
  • Minimum operator training: Easy-to-use and short learning curve to keep up with fast production pace
  • No human involvement needed: Can be operated by a simple touch of a button
  • Multipurpose: Scans any type of material, even black, multicolored and shiny surfaces
  • No rigid setup required: The part and the system can be moved freely at any time during measurement
  • Greater extendable measurement volume: 16.6 m3 (586 ft3)
  • Automatic alignment: Optical reflectors enable repetitive inspection without realignment
  • Multifunction remote control: Allows easier scanning sequence programming

Speed

  • Multitasking: Maximizes production cycle and throughput by offering a simultaneous operation of data acquisition and analysis of a continuous and uninterrupted measurement flow
  • Highly productive: Solution with 24/7 capabilities and fast automatic calibration
  • Highest measurement rate among all laser scanners: 480,000 measurements/s
  • Automatic mesh output: Ready-to-use files, right as acquisition is completed
  • Quick workflow integration: Fastest path from physical objects to inspection workflow
  • Large scanning area: 7 laser crosses
