MetraSCAN 3D

Discover the fastest and most accurate 3D scanner and portable CMM for shop floor environments

The MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM scanner line-up is specifically designed for manufacturing and metrology professionals who do not want to compromise on quality or efficiency. It can withstand any production environment, including shop floor vibrations, part movements and environmental instability – all while accelerating 3D measurement workflows. This optical CMM scanner has been engineered to perform highly accurate and repeatable metrology-grade measurements and 3D geometrical surface inspections.

Speed and accuracy combined with versatility

When paired with the HandyPROBE, Creaform’s handheld optical coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) with probing capabilities, users can also harness the power of both 3D scanning and probing for complete, end-to-end inspection processes.
