Creaform, a business unit of AMETEK, Inc.  and worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, announced today the release of its new VXscan-R software module for the VXelements 10 platform. This latest version now offers an advanced compatibility with a wider range of robots, including collaborative ones, all of which take simplicity and ease of use to the next level while increasing quality control productivity.

The VXscan-R software is an integral part of the renowned R-SeriesTM. It is the optimal automated 3D scanning solution for at-line applications, in turnkey solutions, or for customizable layouts. VXscan-R offers a reliable and accurate digital twin environment for program preparation, scan simulations, and execution. Used with the MetraSCAN 3D-RTM, a robot-mounted optical CMM scanner, the R-Series is designed for companies that want to find defects earlier and ensure that all parts are measured correctly, without human impact and subjectivity.

Discover how accessible the R-Series with VXscan-R is and the many benefits of integrating it into your manufacturing and quality processes.

  • Compatibility: This new version of VXscan-R is now compatible with collaborative robots (Fanuc CRX) as well as a variety of new industrial robots, which allows it to adapt to any workflow, from large production lines to small and medium enterprises.

  • Simple deployment: With its lightweight and compact design, this new offer of collaborative robots in the R-Series can be deployed easily and rapidly, regardless of the users’ levels of expertise or experience.

  • Powerful: The MetraSCAN 3D-R offers high-performance optics, blue laser technology and 360° target coverage, providing optimal measurement accuracy, speed, versatility, and operational simplicity for any quality control task. Just what you need to solve productivity issues efficiently and provide increased product quality.

  • Seamless integration: The R-Series solutions are fully integrated in VXscan-R software and, whether it is a custom layout or turnkey solution, will seamlessly integrate into any automated quality control processes.

  • Safety: Collaborative is not just a word. It means that the robot is expected to work with and around workers. Safety features, like automatically stopping when meeting resistance, are therefore paramount to maintaining a safe working environment.  

"By adding the collaborative robots to the R-Series offer, and by supporting more industrial robots, we can guarantee that the best scanning technology powered by offline programming software is accessible to businesses of all sizes," explained Jérôme-Alexandre Lavoie, Product Manager at Creaform. "Truly, harnessing the power of automation has never been easier."
