The robot-mounted optical CMM 3D scanners for automated inspection


Accelerate your industrial inspection processes by bringing quality control as close to the part as possible. For companies wanting to get accurate results fast, Creaform has developed a robot-mounted optical CMM 3D scanner, the MetraSCAN 3D R-Series. Part of Creaform’s MetraSCAN 3D lineup, this measuring system enables manufacturing companies harness the power of optical measurements and industrial automation directly on their production lines and make quality control easier and more effective. In combination with industrial robots, the MetraSCAN 3D R-Series increases the reliability, speed and versatility of on-line inspection and quality control (QC) processes.

The MetraSCAN 3D R-Series stands as an innovative robotized solution that can be seamlessly integrated into factory automation projects and guarantees optimal measurement accuracy and speed, providing increased productivity and product quality. The automated inspection solution is available in Standard and Elite versions.

The shop-floor 3D scanner works with the C-Track optical tracker. Users can take full advantage of the C-Link functionality by connecting up to 4 C-Tracks in a single network to drastically increase the versatility of the system.

  • Metrology-grade measurements: accuracy of up to 0.030 mm (0.0012 in.), resolution of up to 0.050 mm (0.0020 in.), high repeatability and traceable certificate
  • Dynamic referencing: optical reflectors are used to create a reference system that is locked€¯ to the part, so users can move the object any way they want during the measurement process
  • Volumetric accuracy of 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.)
  • Accurate measurement of parts ranging from 0.2 to 10 m (0.7 to 33 ft.) in size
  • No accuracy drift over time with the easy-to-perform field calibration procedure


  • No rigid setup required: the part and the system can be moved freely at any time during measurement
  • Versatile 3D scanning: can scan any type of color and material, even black, multicolored and shiny surfaces
  • Greater and easily extendable measurement volume
  • Automatic alignment: optical reflectors allows for repetitive inspections without re-alignment
  • Optional probing capabilities by adding the HandyPROBE Next
  • Multi-function remote control for easier robot teaching operations
  • Short learning curve and intuitive operation


  • Fastest 3D scanner on the market: 12 times faster than the previous generation
  • Highest measurement rate among all laser scanners: 480,000 measurements/s
  • Automatic mesh output: ready-to-use files, right as you complete acquisition
  • Quick workflow integration: fastest path from physical objects to your inspection workflow
