Description: 3D Infotech’s Streamline automation software facilitates ease of hardware integration, robot path teaching, and user operation for the Creaform MetraSCAN-R. Industrial and collaborative robots are “plug & play” as Streamline connects seamlessly with Creaform 3D scanners. Extended automated systems like rotary tables, linear rails, and PLCs provide flexibility to meet the demand of a variety of automated inspection applications. With a scanning rate of 480,000 measurements per second, the MetraSCAN-R is ideal for large volume inspection tasks that require extremely rapid cycle times. The MetraSCAN-R has strong capabilities in scanning both shiny and black surfaces without the need for surface preparation. Furthermore, the detrimental effects of vibration on 3D scanning in a shop-floor environment can be significantly reduced with the use of Creaform’s dynamic reference targets. PolyWorks inspection software is utilized in this example, for its vast analysis, reporting, and SPC capabilities.
