  • Creaform HandySCAN 3D Scanner Meets Boeing’s Requirements

    Lévis, Québec, May 28, 2019—Creaform, the worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and non-destructive testing (NDT) solutions, announced today that its HandySCAN 3D™ metrology-grade 3D laser scanner can now be used for recording physical attributes of aircraft dents and blends on all models of Boeing commercial airplanes.

    Boeing has released a service letter with guidance on the use of 3D scanners for measuring dents and blends on airplanes. The SmartDENT 3D™ solution and the flagship HandySCAN 3D scanner were used in the process of guiding Boeing’s quality requirements for the service letter.

    “Creaform is proud to see leaders such as Boeing, turn to 3D scanning solutions for surface defect inspection. With SmartDENT 3D, our goal is to provide the most accurate damage assessment to our customers, so they can make informed and safe decisions, while getting their aircraft back flying with minimal down time,” said Jérôme Beaumont, Global NDT Business Manager at Creaform.

    Overview of SmartDENT 3D benefits:
    • Speed: 80 times faster than the pit gauge technique. It is the fastest and most reliable aircraft surface damage inspection tool available on the market.

    • Metrology-grade measurements for aircraft maintenance: The scanner is accurate to 0.025 mm (0.0009 in.) and has a resolution of up to 0.100 mm (0.0039 in.) with high repeatability and traceable certificate.

    • Intuitive pass/fail assessments: With its intuitive design and real-time software visualization, Creaform’s NDT solutions ensure short learning curves and minimal operator experience influence on the accuracy of results.

    • Live visualization and portability: Weighting less than a kilo, the handheld scanner is the perfect tool for work in hangars or directly outdoors. Users can easily perform 3D surface inspection of any part of an aircraft on which they would use manual techniques—including on and under wings.

  • Creaform’s HandySCAN BLACK and Go!SCAN SPARK Win the Red Dot Awards for Product Design

    Barcelona, May 22, 2019 — Creaform today announced that the brand-new HandySCAN BLACKTM and Go!SCAN SPARKTM have won two Red Dot Awards for Product Design.

    HandySCAN BLACK features blue laser 3D scanning technology and enables dimensional measurements for a wide variety of demanding metrology applications. Due to the inherent nature of the product, the 3D scanner was designed to highlight its visible optical lenses and PC board.

    The statement by the Red Dot jury on the HandySCAN BLACK: “The sleek design of the 3D handheld scanner skillfully reflects its high precision. Thanks to its matte-black background, the bold signature lines are clearly visible.”

    Go!SCAN SPARK, Creaform’s white-light 3D scanner for product development applications, was also hailed for its design. The scanner’s compact inline design, which features angular lines on the device’s sides, integrates four cameras for a fast and easy 3D scanning experience.

    The statement by the Red Dot jury on the Go!SCAN SPARK: “The clearly defined style elements of the Go!SCAN SPARK underscore its high quality. Easy handling makes scanning a pleasure.”

    “These are Creaform’s fourth and fifth Red Dot Awards in the past few years, which attests to how much Creaform believes in the crucial role that design and ergonomics play in the overall user experience,” explained Marco St-Pierre, the company’s Vice-President, Innovation and Technologies.

    The Red Dot Awards is a world-renowned, esteemed competition that pits the most innovative products developed from around the world in a competition to determine which ones stand out in their respective categories. Each year, over 5,000 entries are received from more than 50 countries. The Red Dot Jury is comprised of 40 international experts who test, discuss and evaluate each entry live and on site. Entrants are judged on several criteria, including degree of innovation, functionality, formal quality and ergonomics.

  • Automated Quality Control for the Production Line

    Today more than ever, it is necessary to be able to carry out dimensional controls within the production cycle with automated measuring technology solutions next to or on the production line. The industry of tomorrow is moving toward automated quality control. In Industry 4.0, where the entire manufacturing process is connected, integrated, and automated, 3D scanning is better suited than probing to inspect parts as they are manufactured. Indeed, 3D scanners can quickly capture a lot of data, which are essential to the 4.0 manufacturing process.

    Creaform’s MetraSCAN 3D-R provides a robotic measurement solution that seamlessly integrates with production automation processes. A robot-mounted 3D scanner performs fast, high-precision automatic inspections on complex surfaces. The automated measuring system is available as a turnkey or customized solution and can be installed next to the production line.
