3D scanning coordinate measuring machine

Creaform has launched the CUBE-R, a new generation of complete turnkey automated dimensional inspection solution. The new optical 3D measuring machine capitalizes on the MetraSCAN 3D-R metrology scanner and combines efficiency and reliability of robotization in an automated industrial measuring cell.The CUBE-R extends the 3D digitizing and inspection capabilities of the MetraSCAN 3D for the dimensional measurement of parts ranging from 1 to 3 m with metrology-grade volumetric accuracy in real-life shop-floor conditions. Unlike conventional systems, this solution delivers both speed and volumetric accuracy. In addition, it ensures an increase in productivity. The CUBE-R offers an alternative to coordinate measuring machines (CMM) and other robot-mounted, structured-light 3D scanners.The CUBE-R is the latest addition to the R-Series automated inspection solutions, which also include technology integration for clients looking for customized dimensional measurement solutions. Creaform is a unit of Ametek Ultra Precision Technologies, a division of Ametek.
