The BMW plant in Munich, Germany, has deployed Creaform's 3D measurement and engineering solutions.
Since October of 2012, the BMW plant has been using the MetraSCAN 3D optical CMM 3D scanner, the HandyPROBE arm-free CMM and the EXAscan portable self-positioning 3D scanner from the Handyscan 3D product line. The systems are used for the evaluation of supplier parts, body circumferences and entire vehicles.
The TRUaccuracy technology integrated in the systems allows measurements to be taken directly on the vehicle, without having to jack it up and secure it. Vibrations caused by instabilities of the measurement setup do not affect the accuracy.
BMW Rosslyn in Pretoria, South Africa has been using the HandyPROBE portable coordinate measurement system since 2011.
