DURA Automotive Systems is a global automotive supplier specializing in the design, engineering, and manufacturing of solutions that drive the evolution of mobility. Fond of state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge manufacturing processes, the company is known for its support of a well-known luxury automotive brand in joining the EV revolution.
In its quest for the most advanced technology to meet its precision measurement needs, DURA Auto has chosen Creaform for its additional measuring capacity, portability, and flexibility. Armed with the MetraSCAN 3D and HandyPROBE (paired with Polyworks software), the DURA engineers can achieve precision tolerances for the most demanding product specifications.
Unmatched Speed and Portability
In addition, the unmatched speed and portability of the measuring instruments contributed to reducing the inspection time, which impacted the overall efficiency of the manufacturing process and the production throughput.
“We use the Creaform MetraSCAN 3D and HandyPROBE as portable measurement stations to measure incoming extrusions and get quick scans of the product before it moves forward to a mill to ensure the mill will accept the part. Thanks to Creaform, we have increased our capacity by 75%” states Branden Head, Metrology Supervisor at Dura Automotive.
The distinct performance obtained with Creaform and Polyworks has confirmed their strong reputation in the 3D measurement industry. “Creaform and its 3D measurement solutions were pivotal for the measurement capability in our facility,” adds Mr. Head. “Our project would have struggled with capacity and mobility without Creaform’s and Polyworks’s technology.”
