Both awards attest to HandyPROBE’s performance versus traditional portable CMMs

Creaform, a worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and 3D engineering services, today announced that its optical portable CMM, HandyPROBE, has won two awards for being the best quality control product in its class: the MWP Advanced Manufacturing Award 2014 at MACH and the Prix du Copeau 2014 from the French magazine Machines Production.

Creaform developed the HandyPROBE portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) to increase the reliability and speed of measurement processes. Thanks to the integrated TRUaccuracyTM technology, which includes such features as dynamic referencing, automatic drift detection and alignment, the HandyPROBE can take highly accurate measurements in any work environment, regardless of vibrations, instabilities and thermal variations. What’s more, the HandyPROBE enables users to achieve substantial gains in productivity and cost savings; measurement errors can be reduced by up to 75% and a control time by a factor of 10.

The MWP Advanced Manufacturing Awards are a bi-annual event that is held in conjunction with the MACH exhibition in Birmingham (UK). The awards celebrate the most innovative solutions available at MACH across a variety of sectors. Creaform’s UK distributor, Measurement Solutions Limited, applied for the award with the HandyPROBE, highlighting the solution’s TRUaccuracyTM technology with dynamic referencing. The HandyPROBE won in the Quality Control Equipment category against both Hexagon and Renishaw.

 

One week before, the HandyPROBE won two prizes at the Prix du Copeau 2014, awarded by the French magazine, Machines Production at the Industrie Paris tradeshow. The Prix du Copeau honours suppliers’ innovation in helping improve the competitiveness and quality control performance of machining companies. The HandyPROBE again was recognized for its superior performance in quality control, winning second place in the general ranking and first place in the Quality Control Systems category. A jury composed exclusively of industrial machining professional selected the winners from 25 exhibiting companies.

HGS Automation to leverage Creaform’s 3D inspection solutions for its custom automation solutions

Creaform, a worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and 3D engineering services, and HGS Automation, a custom robotic solutions integrator with proven success in plant automation, announced that they have formed a strategic alliance.

HGS Automation will sell, integrate, and commission fully integrated Metrascan-R solutions, which provide robot-mounted optical CMM 3D scanners for automated inspection on and off the production line.

Based on the Metrascan 3D™ technology, the R (robot) version offers high accuracy, portability, and an intuitive interface to clients in need of 3D scanning devices for on-line measurements in the automotive and aerospace industries. HGS Automation also plans to offer custom solutions for clients in the heavy truck, rail, marine, medical, and general manufacturing industries.

Incorporating Creaform’s TRUaccuracy TM technology, the robotized inspection solutions offer HGS Automation customers the following benefits:

·         Speed: Automated inspection and quality control performed directly on production lines. 

·         Versatility: The solution can be fully configured and programmed (inspection programs) to meet inspection automation requirements for parts of various sizes and shapes.

·         Accuracy:  Highly-accurate measurements of up to 0.085 mm in shop floor conditions (no matter instability, vibrations, thermal variation, etc.). Accuracy is determined by the optical CMM scanner and independent from the robot.

·         Dynamic referencing: With the C-Track’s dynamic referencing mode, the coordinate system can be literally “locked” onto the part being measured, therefore maintaining part alignment during the entire scanning process regardless of the production conditions.

·         Automatic self-calibration: Simply positioning a certified gauge in the work envelope ensures constant accuracy during the systems entire life cycle.

·         Continuous parameter monitoring: Monitoring of parameters, such as temperature and accuracy, ensures constant device accuracy during a systems entire life.

The turnkey solutions offered by HGS Automation provide better quality, accuracy, and repeatability. Moreover, they reduce health and safety issues for repetitive tasks handled by humans. The agreement will definitely help both organizations to reach a larger spectrum of end users and provide a solid foundation for installations, support, and in-service support.
