Creaform Launches the CUBE-R, the Fastest and Truly Accurate Turnkey 3D Scanning Coordinate Measuring Machine for At-Line Inspection

The most recent innovation from Creaform offers an off-the-shelf fully integrated automated inspection solution as an alternative to CMMs in sheet metal, casting and composites.

Lévis, Québec, April 16, 2018—Creaform, a worldwide leader in accurate portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, has launched the CUBE-R, a new generation of complete  turnkey automated dimensional inspection solution. The new optical 3D measuring machine capitalizes on the MetraSCAN 3D-R™ metrology scanner and combines efficiency and reliability of robotization in an automated industrial measuring cell. 

The  CUBE-R™ extends the  3D digitizing and inspection capabilities of the MetraSCAN 3D™ for the dimensional measurement of parts ranging from 1 m to 3 m with metrology-grade volumetric accuracy in real-life shop-floor conditions. Unlike conventional systems, the CUBE-R delivers both speed and volumetric accuracy. In addition, it ensures a significant increase in productivity. The CUBE-R offers a realistic and comprehensive alternative to coordinate measuring machines (CMM) and other robot-mounted, structured-light 3D scanners. 

Key features and benefits

  • High productivity: Performs effective inspections on several hundred parts a day (even on dark or reflective parts with complex geometry)
  • Multitasking: Maximizes production cycle and throughput by offering a simultaneous operation of data acquisition and analysis in a continuous and uninterrupted measurement flow
  • Automatic field calibration procedure: No accuracy drift over time and continuous operation
  • Minimum operator training: Easy-to-use and short learning curve to keep up with fast production pace
  • 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 

“Quality control managers are looking for integrated solutions that enable the detection of assembly problems earlier in the manufacturing process, all while reducing waste and down time to ensure better productivity and higher product quality,” says Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager at Creaform. “The CUBE-R was designed with that in mind. It is the latest addition to our  R-Series automated inspection solutions, which also include technology integration for clients looking for customized dimensional measurement solutions.” 

The CUBE-R makes its first public appearance at Control in Stuttgart, Germany on April 24–27. A “ CUBE-R” video is available and gives insight into the shop-floor ready solution’s integration and operation in the production environment. Customers also are invited to join a  free webinar to learn how the CUBE-R solves productivity issues caused by pressure at the CMM.
