Creaform Extends Collaboration With Robotic Metrology Automation

Creaform has announced the release of its new VXscan-R software module for the VXelements 10 platform. This latest version now offers an advanced compatibility with a wider range of robots, including collaborative, all of which take simplicity and ease of use to the next level while increasing quality control productivity.

The VXscan-R software is an integral part of the renowned R-Series – the optimal automated 3D scanning solution for at-line applications, in turnkey solutions, or for customizable layouts. VXscan-R offers a reliable and accurate digital twin environment for program preparation, scan simulations, and execution. Used with the MetraSCAN 3D-R robot-mounted optical CMM scanner, the R-Series is designed for companies that want to find defects earlier and ensure that all parts are measured correctly, without human impact and subjectivity.

The R-Series with VXscan-R is readily accessible offering many benefits of integrating robot measurements directly into manufacturing and quality processes.

Compatibility: This new version of VXscan-R is now compatible with collaborative robots (Fanuc CRX) as well as a variety of new industrial robots, which allows it to adapt to any workflow, from large production lines to small and medium enterprises.

Simple deployment: With its lightweight and compact design, this new offer of collaborative robots in the R-Series can be deployed easily and rapidly, regardless of the users’ levels of expertise or experience.

Powerful: The MetraSCAN 3D-R offers high-performance optics, blue laser technology and 360° target coverage, providing optimal measurement accuracy, speed, versatility, and operational simplicity for any quality control task. Just what you need to solve productivity issues efficiently and provide increased product quality.

Seamless integration: The R-Series solutions are fully integrated in VXscan-R software and, whether it is a custom layout or turnkey solution, will seamlessly integrate into any automated quality control processes.

Safety: Collaborative is not just a word. It means that the robot is expected to work with and around workers. Safety features, like automatically stopping when meeting resistance, are therefore paramount to maintaining a safe working environment.

“By adding the collaborative robots to the R-Series offer, and by supporting more industrial robots, we can guarantee that the best scanning technology powered by offline programming software is accessible to businesses of all sizes,” explained Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager at Creaform. “Truly, harnessing the power of automation has never been easier.”
