The new optical 3D measuring machine capitalises on the MetraSCAN 3D-R metrology scanner and combines efficiency and reliability of robotisation in an automated industrial measuring cell.
The CUBE-R extends the 3D digitising and inspection capabilities of the MetraSCAN 3D for the dimensional measurement of parts ranging from 1 to 3 m, with metrology-grade volumetric accuracy in real-life shopfloor conditions.
Unlike conventional systems, the CUBE-R delivers both speed and volumetric accuracy, the company says. In addition, it ensures a significant increase in productivity. The CUBE-R offers a realistic and comprehensive alternative CMMs and other robot-mounted, structured-light 3D scanners.
Key features and benefits
In a further announcement related to the launch, Metrologic Group and Creaform say they have entered into a partnership in which Creaform integrates Metrologic Group’s software suite with its new CUBE-R 3D automated dimensional inspection solution.
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 personalised, 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.
