Creaform, a world-class company offering 3D technology and engineering services, today introduced the high-end MetraSCAN 3D scanner as the logical complement to the HandyPROBE optical CMM. Powered by the C-Track dual-camera sensor, the MetraSCAN increases the reliability, speed and versatility of the measurement process like no other scanner before.
Featuring Creaform's TRUaccuracy technology, the MetraSCAN ensures highly-accurate dimensional measurements regardless of the measurement environment (instability, vibrations, thermal variations, etc.) or operator skills. "This is what metrologists want," stated Product Manager and former metrologist Daniel Brown. "Scanning, probing, gap and flush analysis, shiny part inspection and fine surface detail acquisition can be performed quickly through an integrated and uninterrupted process that is above all compliant with the most stringent industry standards."
"Clearly, optics is now the future of metrology; we can already see this trend happening," indicated President Charles Mony. "Not only do optical measurement solutions allow greater precision in real conditions, faster set-up and less maintenance, but they are also easier to use and more portable. Creaform remains ahead of the pack when it comes to optical measurement. We are dedicated to providing metrologists with solutions that will help them improve their productivity."
