Creaform Technology Certified by NIM
LEVIS, Quebec, Canada, August 31, 2010 — Creaform, a provider of 3-D technology and engineering services, has announced the certification of its technology by the National Institute of Metrology (NIM).
Two of the 3-D laser scanners from the Handyscan 3D line, EXAscan and MAXscan, scored great marks by complying with accuracy specifications of 40 and 50 µm, respectively. These results were obtained after performing feature, distance and surface measurements.
The HandyProbe’s 55-µm single-point accuracy and 85-µm volumetric accuracy met specifications. A subset of the ASME B89.4.22 standard was used during the tests, which were carried out at the NIM labs in Beijing.
“Our technology has been known to us for a long time to be very useful for metrology purposes,” said Marco St-Pierre, vice president of innovation and technologies at Creaform. “This certification from an independent and recognized authority like NIM not only corroborates that but also helps us let the world know about it, too.”
