Partnership for automated QC solutions

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 system.

This laser scanning, all-in-one solution features Metrologic Group’s 3D measurement programming and inspection software packages, Silma and Metrolog X4 i-Robot, and offers robotic operations in an automated industrial measuring cell.
CUBE-R is an off-the-shelf, fully integrated, automated 3D inspection solution designed for manufacturing companies requiring automated quality control directly on the shop floor. The machine optimises the MetraScan 3D-R metrology scanner with the use of Metrologic Group’s robot-dedicated measurement software, Metrolog X4 i-Robot, thus providing a flexible plug-and-play alternative to CMMS and other robot-mounted, structured-light 3D scanners.
The CUBE-R extends the capabilities of the MetraScan 3D-R for the dimensional measurement of parts ranging from 1 to 3 m with metrology-grade volumetric accuracy under real shop-floor conditions.
Integrating Metrologic Group’s Silma X4 i-Robot and Metrolog X4 i-Robot, the CUBE-R delivers an array of benefits. For instance, the software calculates the most efficient positioning of the sensor and the best collision-free trajectories for the robot. In addition, the same software manages the optical 3D measurements and 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.
