The MetraSCAN 3D™ optical CMM scanner is the ideal solution for shop-floor inspection or reverse-engineering needs. At the core of the Creaform optical CMM is the C Track optical tracker with its ability to perform real-time dynamic referencing of the MetraSCAN and HandyPROBE devices as well as targets on a part. Built with high-end optical components, the C-Track drives the metrology-grade measurements of the whole system.
One of the most powerful advantages of a metrology-grade measurement system is the ability to both scan and take contact or optical probe measurements, providing versatility of use. The system’s scanning and probing capabilities can be used independently or integrated into the measurement workflow.
Flexible measurement volume allows the user to move the C Track and measured part dynamically to capture all the required data instead of a rigid setup that would limit the amount of data collection and require leapfrogs, potentially adding the loss of accuracy between moves.
Max Shot 3D Photogrammetry. Creaform’s Max Shot 3D System can be integrated 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. achieving an accuracy of 0.015mm/m or better.
The Dynamic Referencing capability allows for freedom of movement without the necessity of having a rigid setup. The C-Track tracks the targets in its 16.6m^3 volume in real-time allowing for vibrations commonly found on shop floor environments. This also allows for the C-Track to move around the part and extend the volume by acquiring additional targets to the scene or working volume. This amounts to greater flexibility in the setup of the measurement workflow which leads to substantial time and cost savings.
The Creaform Shop-Floor Workstation is designed to ensure optimal manufacturing performance when using Creaform’s dimensional inspection devices in production environments. It incorporates all the tools you need in one workstation and offers secure storage for all Creaform 3D measurement technologies (portable 3D scanners, portable CMM, photogrammetry system, and related accessories). By adding flexibility, mobility, and reliability to Creaform’s systems across a production plant while being in operation, the workstation improves efficiency, productivity, and the overall quality assurance process on the shop floor.
Stand-alone or bundled with the workstation, the C-Track Shop-Floor Stand facilitates the mobility of the C-Track around the part to be inspected while running. Once mounted on the stand’s extendable pole, the C-Track dual-camera sensors can reach a height of 1.9 m (73 in.) to accommodate high and low inspection set-ups. Also fitted with locking wheels and retractable legs, the stand can easily adapt to static use. Paired with the Self-Power Kit (external battery), move the C-Track Shop-floor Stand from one place to another without worrying about temperature stabilization time when shutting down/restarting the C-Track and controller. Along with the workstation, it provides a complete solution for a real-time manufacturing quality control process.
