Robot-Mounted Optical CMM 3D Scanners

The robot-mounted optical CMM 3D scanners for automated inspection

Accelerate your industrial inspection processes by bringing quality control as close to the part as possible. For companies wanting to get accurate results fast, Creaform has developed a robot-mounted optical CMM 3D scanner, the MetraSCAN 3D™ R-Series. 

Part of Creaform’s MetraSCAN 3D lineup, this measuring system enables manufacturing companies harness the power of optical measurements and industrial automation directly on their production lines—and make quality control easier and more effective. In combination with industrial robots, the MetraSCAN 3D R-Series increases the reliability, speed and versatility of on-line inspection and quality control (QC) processes.

The MetraSCAN 3D R-Series stands as an innovative robotized solution that can be seamlessly integrated into factory automation projects and guarantees optimal measurement accuracy and speed, providing increased productivity and product quality. The automated inspection solution is available in Standard and Elite versions.

The shop-floor 3D scanner works with the C-Track™ optical tracker. Users can take full advantage of the C-Link™ functionality by connecting up to 4 C-Tracks in a single network to drastically increase the versatility of the system.
