Metrologic Group and Creaform agree to partnership
Metrologic Group and Creaform have entered into a partnership in which Creaform integrates Metrologic Group’s software suite with its new Cube-R 3D automated dimensional inspection solution. This laser scanning, all-in-one solution features Metrologic Group’s advanced 3D measurement programming and inspection software packages, Silma and Metrolog X4 i-Robot, and combines efficiency and reliability of robotization in an automated industrial measuring cell.
The Cube-R is an off-the-shelf, fully integrated, automated 3D inspection solution designed for manufacturing companies requiring automated quality control directly on the shop floor. It optimizes the Metrascan 3D-R metrology scanner with the use of Metrologic Group’s robot-dedicated measurement software, Metrolog X4 i-Robot. The solution thus provides a flexible plug-and-play, alternative to coordinate measuring machines and other robot-mounted, structured-light 3D scanners.
Speed and volumetric accuracy
The Cube-R extends the capabilities of the Metrascan 3D-R for the dimensional measurement of parts ranging from 1 m to 3 m with metrology-grade volumetric accuracy under real-life shop-floor conditions. Unlike conventional systems, the Cube-R delivers both speed and volumetric accuracy, consequently insuring a significant increase in productivity.
User-Friendly, Easy to Operate
Integrating Metrologic Group’s Silma X4 i-Robot and Metrolog X4 i-Robot, the Cube-R delivers an array of benefits: The software calculates the most efficient positioning of the sensor and the best collision-free trajectories for the robot. The same software manages the optical 3D measurements, simultaneously provides advanced analysis of the results –even when computing huge point clouds–, and edits personalized, easy-to-understand reports. In short, Metrolog and Silma X4 i-Robot turn the Cube-R into a simple automated measurement solution, easily operated by a non-specialist operator.
