Creaform R-Series

HandySCAN 3D | BLACK Series

Detect Quality Issues Faster and Make Better Decisions

Designed for automated quality control applications, the R-Series™ 3D scanning solutions are perfect for manufacturing companies who want to increase their productivity by measuring more dimensions on more parts without compromising on accuracy.

The MetraSCAN 3D-R™ is a powerful, innovative robot-mounted optical CMM scanner that can be seamlessly integrated into automated quality control processes for at-line inspection in mass production. Its cutting-edge technology enables manufacturing companies to detect quality issues faster.

The CUBE-R™ leverages the power of the MetraSCAN 3D-R in a high-productivity industrial measuring cell that is designed to be integrated into factories for at-line inspections. Compared to traditional CMMs, the CUBE-R is much faster, providing a gain in productivity and better efficiency.

Operational simplicity

Due to its operational simplicity, compatibility with metrology software, and off-line programming, the CUBE-R is a CMM that is accessible to all, regardless of the level of expertise or experience. The user interface makes it simple for operators, who are non-experts in robotics nor metrology, to measure parts regardless of size, shape, or complexity. Once the measurements are completed, quality control engineers can focus on analyzing and reviewing the results.

  • Accessibility to shop floor operators
    No expertise in robotics nor metrology required
  • Short and easy deployment
    3-day installation
  • Software independence
    Compatible with metrology software
  • Digital twin environment
    VXscan-R scanning intelligence and robot path programming


Combining the power of optical and blue laser technologies, the MetraSCAN 3D-R has the capability to both generate highly efficient 3D scans on shiny surfaces or on objects with variations in reflectivity and measure various part sizes and different surface geometries. The MetraSCAN 3D-R is available as a custom solution with an industrial robot or as a completely turnkey measuring solution with Creaform’s CUBE-R.

  • Blue laser technology
    Ideal for shiny and reflective surfaces
  • Configurable and customizable portfolio
    16 configurations
  • Large part size range
    Perfect for various part sizes and geometries
  • Custom integration possible

Accuracy and resolution

Due to its metrology-grade accuracy, repeatability, and resolution, the MetraSCAN 3D-R delivers high-quality results, whether on surfaces, trims or geometric features. The MetraSCAN 3D-R is free from rigid measurement setups, making it a 3D scanner engineered for industrial automation in shop-floor conditions. Thanks to the C‑Track optical tracker that enables dynamic referencing, both the 3D scanner and the part can move during inspection—maintaining part alignment as well as measurement accuracy and reliability.

  • Shop-floor accuracy with dynamic referencing
    0.025 mm (0.0009 in) in shop-floor conditions, regardless of instabilities, vibrations, and thermal variations
  • Reliable acceptance test
    Based on VDI/VDE 2634 part 3 standard in an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory
  • Volumetric accuracy
    0.078 mm (0.0031 in)
  • High resolution
    0.025 mm (0.0009 in)


The MetraSCAN 3D-R enables the measurement of hundreds of parts per day. Perfect for at-line inspection in mass production, it brings quality control as close to the part as possible. From easy integration to quick and simple installation, the MetraSCAN 3D-R helps you speed up your automated quality control processes—and accelerate your time to market.

  • High measurement rate
    Up to 1,800,000 measurements/second for short cycle times
  • Fast measurement speed
    Regardless of surfaces, trims, and geometric features
  • High-density scanning area
    45 laser lines
