Creaform, a business unit of AMETEK and provider in automated and portable 3D measurement solutions, announced the latest addition to its flagship HandySCAN 3D line-up, the MAX Series.

The handheld MAX Series line of industrial 3D scanners, designed and manufactured in Canada, offers an impressive 3D scanning area of approximately 1m x 1m and was developed to acquire accurate 3D measurements of any large and complex surfaces. Featuring multiple scanning mode that allows users to choose between the fastest scanning time or maximum resolution, the new portable 3D scanners offer a level of versatility that will enable professionals to optimally measure any large parts and assemblies (up to 15 m). Combining the effect of speed, extra-large measuring volume, accuracy, portability, and simplicity, the new scanners will allow for an easy, efficient and robust measurement process of parts typically present in the aerospace, transportation, energy, mining and heavy industries, amongst others.

Thanks to its volumetric accuracy of 0,100 mm + 0,015 mm/m, ISO 17025 accreditation and compliance with the VDI/VDE 2634 part 3 standard, the MAX series provides metrology-grade results, making it ideal for quality control, precision link between parts with tight tolerancing and demanding reverse engineering of large parts. Additionally, the new scanners still feature Creaform’s powerful dynamic referencing algorithms, allowing for accurate and rigorous 3D scans of any object, whether in the lab, on the shop floor or in the field.

The system is plug-and-play and quick to set up. The 3D scans can be easily and seamlessly integrated into any CAD software, speeding up and simplifying product development, 3D inspection and reverse engineering processes of large parts and assemblies.
