Creaform has launched the R-Series Productivity Station and the R-Series Autocalibration Kit. Both are upgrades to its robotic metrology dimensional measurement solution, which offers an efficient alternative to traditional shopfloor CMMs.

The MetraScan 3D R-Series solution enables manufacturing companies to combine both optical measurements and industrial automation to provide reliability and increase inspection cycles. It is said to provide actionable results with a smaller shopfootprint, facilitating integration.

The mechanical and software upgrades to the line allow operators to run data acquisition while simultaneously analyzing previously-acquired data to maximize throughput. Self-calibration limits the need for human involvement, which the company says increases throughput and enables 24/7 operation.

Designed for shop-floor measurement applications, the system provides an automatic field calibration procedure eliminating accuracy drift over time and thus enabling continuous operation. It utilizes an industrial-grade toolchanger, computers and touch screens for improved reliability. It makes metrology-grade measurements with accuracy to 0.030 mm and resolution of 0.050 mm. It has high repeatability and traceable certificates. The product’s NEMA 12 certification insures reliability.
