Automated 3D scanning CMM: CUBE-R

The Fastest Turnkey 3D Scanning Coordinate Measurement Machine

CUBE-R™ is a fast, reliable, and efficient complete turnkey solution for automated quality control applications. This automated 3D measuring machine features MetraSCAN 3D-R, a powerful robot-mounted optical 3D scanner that can be integrated into factory automation systems without compromising on accuracy. It is the perfect alternative to solve any productivity issues caused by bottlenecks at the traditional coordinate measuring machine (CMM). Unlike existing solutions, our 3D scanning machine enables manufacturing companies to harness the power of optical 3D measurement and industrial automation. This CMM measuring machine optimizes the production cycle and throughput resulting in better product quality.


New features
  • High productivity: Performs inspection up to hundreds of parts a day (even on complex surfaces)
  • Complete turnkey solution: No integration required, fully enclosed and shop-floor-ready
  • Smaller factory footprint: A complete 4.1 m x 4.1 m x 3.1 m turnkey solution with a flexible shop-floor configuration.
  • Multitasking: Maximizes the production cycle and throughput by offering a simultaneous operation of data acquisition and analysis to get continuous and uninterrupted measurement flow
  • Automatic field calibration procedure: No accuracy drift over time and continuous operation
  • Robust industrial design: Adapted for shop-floor conditions and environments
  • Metrology-grade measurements: Accuracy of up to 0.030 mm (0.0012 in), resolution of up to 0.050 mm (0.0020 in), high repeatability and traceable certificates
  • Volumetric accuracy: Up to 0.078 mm (0.0031 in)
  • Integrated photogrammetry: Automated process to maximize volumetric accuracy
  • Dynamic referencing: Optical reflectors are used to create a reference system that is “locked” to the part. The system enables the part to be moved and eliminates the impact of vibrations on the measurement process and results
  • Part size range: Parts up to 3 m (9.84 ft)
  • Automatic field calibration procedure: No accuracy drift over time
  • Complete turnkey solution: No integration required, fully enclosed and shop-floor ready

  • Simple user interface: Designed to minimize operator interaction and help perform automatic inspections
  • No human involvement needed: Can be operated by a simple touch of a button.
  • Minimum operator training: Easy-to-use and short learning curve to keep up with a fast production pace
  • Multipurpose: Scans any type of material, even black, multicolored and shiny surfaces
  • Automatic alignment: Optical reflectors enable repetitive inspection without realignment
  • Multifunction remote control: Allows easier scanning sequence programming
  • High productivity: Performs inspections of up to hundreds of parts a day (even on complex surfaces)
  • Multitasking: Optimizes the production cycle and throughput by offering a simultaneous operation of data acquisition and analysis to generate a continuous and uninterrupted measurement flow
  • Highest measurement rate among all laser scanners: 480,000 measurements/s
  • Automatic mesh output: Ready-to-use files, right as acquisition is completed
  • Quick workflow integration: Fastest path from physical objects to inspection workflow
  • Large scanning area: 7 laser crosses
