Creaform Adds Two High-Performance Scanners

Upgraded with blue laser technology

Published: Monday, June 27, 2022 - 12:00

(Creaform: Lévis, QC) -- Creaform, a business unit of AMETEK and a worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, is launching two scanners with great price-performance ratios as part of its HandySCAN 3DTM SILVER Series solution suite. The new HandySCAN 307 Elite and HandySCAN 700 Elite, with blue laser technology, offer additional options for SMEs looking to leverage the performance of 3D scanning technologies affordably.

Customers can benefit from:

• Excellent data capture on parts with complex and shiny surfaces
• Improved resolution and accuracy levels of up to 0.030 mm (0.0012 in.)
• Unbeatable user experience with software enhancements via VXelements’ powerful algorithms
• Better 3D measurements of parts with varying degrees of complexity and sizes

All 3D scanners in Creaform’s SILVER Series are designed and manufactured in North America and are supported by Creaform’s team of specialists located around the globe.

“When we first released the HandySCAN 3DTM SILVER Series in 2021, the response from the market was truly astounding as customers looking for the best performance-to-value ratio felt that Creaform was democratizing high-end technology—an industry first,” says Simon Côté, product manager at Creaform.

“With the new HandySCAN 307 Elite and HandySCAN 700 Elite, companies and professionals can choose a truly distinct 3D scanner for the performance they need for whatever application or project they have in mind. What’s more, they gain peace of mind knowing that they are using 3D scanners developed with superior craftsmanship and backed by a support team that knows 3D scanning inside and out. That’s the value Creaform brings to the table,” Côté adds.

The HandySCAN 307 Elite is offered for $27,900, while the HandySCAN 700 Elite is $36,900.
