Both awards attest to HandyPROBE’s performance versus traditional portable CMMs

Lévis, QC, Canada – Creaform, a worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and 3D engineering services, today announced that its optical portable CMM, HandyPROBE, has won two awards for being the best quality control product in its class: the MWP Advanced Manufacturing Award 2014 at MACH and the Prix du Copeau 2014 from the French magazine Machines Production.

Creaform developed the HandyPROBE portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) to increase the reliability and speed of measurement processes. Thanks to the integrated TRUaccuracy™ technology, which includes such features as dynamic referencing, automatic drift detection and alignment, the HandyPROBE can take highly accurate measurements in any work environment, regardless of vibrations, instabilities and thermal variations. What’s more, the HandyPROBE enables users to achieve substantial gains in productivity and cost savings; measurement errors can be reduced by up to 75% and a control time by a factor of 10.

The MWP Advanced Manufacturing Awards are a bi-annual event that is held in conjunction with the MACH exhibition in Birmingham (UK). The awards celebrate the most innovative solutions available at MACH across a variety of sectors. Creaform’s UK distributor, Measurement Solutions Limited, applied for the award with the HandyPROBE, highlighting the solution’s TRUaccuracy™ technology with dynamic referencing. The HandyPROBE won in the Quality Control Equipment category against both Hexagon and Renishaw.

One week before, the HandyPROBE won two prizes at the Prix du Copeau 2014, awarded by the French magazine, Machines Production at the Industrie Paris tradeshow. The Prix du Copeau honours suppliers’ innovation in helping improve the competitiveness and quality control performance of machining companies. The HandyPROBE again was recognized for its superior performance in quality control, winning second place in the general ranking and first place in the Quality Control Systems category. A jury composed exclusively of industrial machining professional selected the winners from 25 exhibiting companies.
