Creaform, Metrologic Group Announce Worldwide Partnership

The partnership integrates the latter’s advanced metrology software into the former’s automated 3D scanning product, Cube-R. 

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 product will now feature Metrologic Group’s advanced 3D measurement programming and inspection software packages, Silma and Metrolog X4 i-Robot.

The Cube-R is designed to be 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, according to the company.

“Metrologic Group is dedicated to developing the automated 3D metrology market through its X4 i-Robot platform,” says Stéphane Auclair, vice president of marketing and product management at Creaform-Ametek. “Metrologic Group is the only independent software partner to integrate robot path planning and simulation with other automation-type functionalities. Partnering with them for the commercialization of the Cube-R was an obvious choice for us.”

“The Cube-R is yet another illustration of the ability of the Metrolog and Silma X4 i-Robot software suite to control singly the most advanced 3D measuring solutions,” says Bertrand Gili, president of Metrologic Group. “Combined with the Cube-R, our software suite brings advanced 3D inspection technology to the shop floor and offers easy-to-program, easy-to-operate quality control routines for complex roboticized inspection scenarios.”
