Creaform has launched the Cube-R, a new generation of complete turnkey automated dimensional inspection solutions. The new optical 3D measuring machine capitalises on the MetraSCAN 3D-R metrology scanner and combines efficiency and reliability of robotisation in an automated industrial measuring cell.
The Cube-R extends the 3D digitising and inspection capabilities of the MetraSCAN 3D for the dimensional measurement of parts ranging from 1 to 3m with metrology-grade volumetric accuracy in real-life shop-floor conditions. Unlike conventional systems, it delivers both speed and volumetric accuracy. In addition, it ensures a significant increase in productivity. The Cube-R offers a realistic and comprehensive alternative to coordinate measuring machines (CMM) and other robot-mounted, structured-light 3D scanners.
“Quality control managers are looking for integrated solutions that enable the detection of assembly problems earlier in the manufacturing process, all while reducing waste and down time to ensure better productivity and higher product quality,” said Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager at Creaform. “The Cube-R was designed with that in mind. It is the latest addition to our R-Series automated inspection solutions, which also include technology integration for clients looking for customised dimensional measurement solutions.”
