Creaform, a business unit of AMETEK, Inc. providing portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, announced today the release of VXintegrity, their new 3D scanning solution for surface damage assessment. Designed specifically to respond to the challenges facing industrial assets owners and NDT service companies, this new software platform contains four different modules, intended to tackle any surface analyses, as well as simple metrology applications.
Making it possible to measure up to 80 times faster than manual measuring tools, the new VXintegrity software platform, combined with Creaform’s 3D scanners, represents a solution to the current shortage of experienced technicians and aging and/or damaged infrastructures. Moreover, this user independent technology requires little training and few certifications, which means that technicians can be up and running faster than with other techniques.
“The metrology-grade 3D data generated through this software platform can precisely identify small thickness variation between inspections to compare damage progression through time, making it the best, and only, technique sensitive enough to do so on the market” insists François Lachance, Product Manager at Creaform. “In addition, these four industry-optimised modules are sure to open up new business opportunities for NDT service providers.”
