Manufacturing

ManufacturingThe Creaform portable 3D measurement technologies are the dream of any manufacturer in need of an accurate and reliable measurement device designed to operate in “real-life” shop floor conditions. Based on the TRUaccuracy technology, our measuring devices always generate reliable and highly accurate measurements. Thanks to dynamic referencing, the environment surrounding the part to be measured is of no concern: vibrations, high/fluctuating temperatures, dust or any other extreme condition won’t have any impact at all on the accuracy and speed of our measuring devices.

Plus, Creaform can help you enhance your manufacturing process and lower your production costs by providing you down-to-earth and efficient advice and services. If necessary, our technicians and engineers can go and work directly in your plant, assembly or production line. Our technologies and services can help you carry out:

  • Inspection/quality control
  • Machine/tooling design
  • Machine/tooling adjustments
  • Work instructions
Die & Mould Design or Modification

Die & Mould Design or Modification

Manufacturers using molds and dies production methods such as stamping, casting and plastic injection must deal with physical phenomena like shrinkage and spring back effect, which makes it complicated to match the CAD geometry.

First Article Inspection of Manufactured Parts

First Article Inspection of Manufactured Parts

The inspection of the first manufactured parts is essential for the development of any manufacturing process. The prototypes are typically produced in small quantities and must be inspected against a blueprint or by comparison to a CAD file to ensure that the part was accurately produced or to correctly identify the causes of impending defects.

Raw Casting / Forging Inspection

Raw Casting / Forging Inspection

In casting and forging, raw parts are usually machined in some critical areas to obtain the final part. To make sure that the raw casting holds enough material to be machined, it is possible to carry out dimensional inspections. A 3D scan allows operators to align the raw part on the machine and orient it so as to guarantee enough material for the operation.
