Both are key upgrades to Creaform’s robotic metrology dimensional measurement solution, which offers an efficient alternative to traditional shop-floor CMMs.

The R-series enables manufacturing companies to combine both optical measurements and industrial automation, to ensure reliability and increase inspection cycles. The solution provides actionable results with a smaller factory footprint, facilitating integration into any factory.

Designed for shop-floor measurement applications, the R-Series solution includes the following key components:

  • Automatic field calibration procedure: No accuracy drift over time and continuous operation;
  • Shop floor reliability: Industrial components (industrial-grade tool changer, computers and touch screens; NEMA 12 certification; fully robotized calibration; among others.);
  • Metrology-grade measurements: Accuracy up to 0.030 mm, resolution of up to 0.050 mm, high repeatability and traceable certificate;

“Automated quality control has been one of our driving forces since 2013, Creaform is now fully braced to support a large range of customer needs in terms of industrial automated quality control,” adds Marco St-Pierre, division vice president, Technology and Innovation at Creaform.

The R-Series solution will make its first appearance at Control in Stuttgart, Germany, April 24–27.
