Creaform Launches Productivity Station Delivering Fast Automated Dimensional Inspection

Creaform has launched its R-Series Productivity Station and the R-Series Autocalibration Kit. Both are key upgrades to its robotic metrology automated dimensional measurement solution, which offers an efficient alternative to traditional shop-floor CMMs.

The MetraSCAN 3D R-Series solution enables manufacturing companies to combine both optical measurements and industrial automation, to ensure reliability and increase inspection cycles. The solution provides actionable results with a smaller factory footprint, facilitating integration into any factory.

“The major mechanical and software upgrades to the R-Series product line allow operators to run data acquisition, while simultaneously analyzing previously acquired data to maximize throughput,” says Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager at Creaform. “Self-calibration limits the need for human involvement, ensuring higher throughput and 24/7 operation.”

Designed for shop-floor measurement applications off the following key features and benefits:

  • Automatic field calibration procedure: No accuracy drift over time and continuous operation;
  • Shop floor reliability: Industrial components including industrial-grade tool changer, computers and touch screens; NEMA 12 certification; and fully robotized calibration.
  • Metrology-grade measurements: Accuracy up to 0.030 mm, resolution of up to 0.050 mm, high repeatability and traceable certificate.

“Automated quality control has been one of our driving forces since 2013, Creaform is now fully braced to support a large range of customer needs in terms of industrial automated quality control,” adds Marco St-Pierre, Division Vice-President Technology and Innovation at Creaform.

The R-Series solution will make its first appearance at Control Exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, April 24–27.
