Reliable quality control for the casting industry

Creaform’s portable 3D scanners enable quality control teams to perform inspections during the design or production process. The scanners help to avoid unnecessary, repetitive construction steps and ensure that castings perfectly match CAD references.

The HandySCAN 3D and the MetraSCAN 3D both developed by Creaform, quickly and accurately capture the dimensions of every imaginable shape, even under the harshest production environments.

The HandySCAN 3D is a metrology-grade handheld portable 3D laser scanner. It is the fastest on the market and features the highest measurement rate and accuracy available all while remaining very simple to use. Its self-positioning capabilities and portability provide unmatched freedom of movement. It is the perfect solution when confined areas need to be reached or smaller parts ranging from 0.1 to 4m in size have to be measured, regardless of their complexity, material, or color.

The MetraSCAN 3D is the most complete 3D scanning solution for metrology-grade measurements and inspections. Truly portable and insensitive to changes found in shop-floor environments, it significantly increases the reliability, speed, and versatility of 3D measurement processes. It also outperforms scanners that are mounted on traditional portable CMMs. The MetraSCAN 3D is the best solution for geometrical and freeform surface inspections on parts ranging from 0.2 to 10 m in size, regardless of their type of material, color, or reflectivity. Paired with the C-Track optical tracker that enables dynamic referencing, automatic alignment and continuous monitoring of parameters, it provides the most accurate measurements in the lab and on the shop floor. Offering optional probing capabilities with the HandyPROBE Next, users can harness the power of both 3D scanning and portable optical CMMs for a streamlined inspection process.
