The CUBE-R leverages the power of the MetraSCAN 3D-R in a high-productivity industrial measuring cell that is designed to be integrated into factories for at-line inspections. Compared to traditional CMMs, the CUBE-R is much faster, providing a gain in productivity and better efficiency.
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.
The MaxSHOT 3D is ideal for product development, manufacturing, quality control and inspection teams that need the highest measurement accuracy and repeatability as much for large‑scale projects than for parts from 2 to 10 m. If you consistently work on large‑scale projects, the MaxSHOT 3D is your go-to solution to slash budget-busting measurement mistakes, improve product quality, increase process efficiency—and minimize overall operating costs.
Thanks to its sophisticated user guidance technology and easy‑to‑use software, the MaxSHOT 3D is ideal for users of all levels—even non‑metrology experts—so that you gain peace of mind knowing your measurements are always right on the dot and you increase process efficiency.
VXmodel is a post-treatment software that directly integrates into VXelements, and enables finalizing 3D scan data to use directly in any 3D printing or CAD software. VXmodel provides the simplest and fastest path from 3D scans to your computer-aided design or additive manufacturing workflow. A great addition to any Creaform 3D scanner, VXmodel is simple but powerful, including only the features necessary to complement your CAD software. You already have all the design and modeling capabilities in your software: VXmodel only provides the tools you need for a quick and seamless integration into your scan-based design process.
VXinspect™ is an intuitive and powerful 3D inspection software designed for manufacturing companies conducting first article inspection (FAI) and production control. VXinspect features all the essential functionalities required to build a measurement sequence, resulting in high efficiency when controlling multiple parts. A built-in centralized panel displays all the information you can choose to export in the final report. Like other Creaform software modules, VXinspect is directly integrated into VXelements™, the Creaform 3D software platform and application suite. It provides the simplest integration of probing, 3D scanning and photogrammetry measurements to meet industry requirements for all quality control applications.
The VXtrack dynamic tracking module is a key component of VXelements, Creaform’s fully integrated 3D software platform. VXtrack also comes with a C-Track, which together forms a complete portable 3D measurement solution. Thanks to VXtrack, you will accelerate your manufacturing and quality control processes—from assembly control and monitoring to crash-test dummy applications. It accurately and efficiently measures the positions and orientations of reflectors in space; all measurements can be taken simultaneously and accurately. This makes it possible to control displacements, drive assembly processes or measure deformations.
The VXscan-R software module, part of Creaforms R-Series for automated quality control solutions, is a reliable and accurate digital twin environment that is useful for program preparation, scan parameters adjustments (including speed, shutter time, and scan resolution), scan simulation and execution. With VXscan-Rs scanning intelligence and dedicated functions, programming robot paths and optimizing the line-of-sight is easier and faster. Thanks to VXscan-R, automated quality control is now accessible to non-expertsresolving programming issues and helping operators feel more confident when working with robotic systems.
Field crews are facing challenges to complete pipeline inspections and ensure that their integrity assessments are performed in the shortest time possible so that excavation sites can be backfilled. Creaform has the most trusted non-destructive testing 3D technology solution for pipes up to 18 m (60 ft) in lenght, which includes a 3D scanner and Pipecheck™ software. This solution will save you both time and money without compromising diagnosis results, public safety and the integrity assessment.
Pipecheck automatically allows on-site inspection, detection and characterization of pipe defects whether internal or external; these include corrosion, dents, and mechanical damages. Inspection data and results are traceable and can be revised with new inspection parameters without leaving the inspection site.
Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) companies, aircraft manufacturers and airlines that perform NDT inspections for in-service aircraft maintenance have increasing pressure to complete their assessments in the fastest way possible without sacrificing accuracy. ln fact, the longer an airplane is grounded, the more airlines lose money.
SmartDENT 3D is the first dedicated 3D visualization software on the market designed for 3D assessments and characterization of dent damages located on aircraft surfaces. lt offers a guided workflow approach to simplify the measurement extraction of 3D scan data to get exactly the dimensions required for the assessment of in-service airplanes. SmartDENT 3D greatly reduce operators' impact on measurements results and shortens the time to generate final reports.
