The METRAscan

The MetraSCAN is a powerful 3D laser scanning system. Combined with the HandyPROBE, this 3D laser scanning and metrology probing system can be used for a wide range of metrology applications. Data acquired by the 3d scanning device system may be processed in real time using any major inspection and metrology software. This highly accurate digitizing device can carry out the following tasks:


  • Part-to-CAD analysis
  • First article inspection for the quality assurance department
  • Supplier product quality inspection
  • Conformity assessment of 3D models against original CAD Model

Parts or production tooling

  • Conformity assessment of manufactured parts against originals
  • Alignment
  • Tooling certification

Reverse Engineering

  • Surface reconstruction
  • 3D CAD modeling
  • Tooling & jigs development
  • Maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO)
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)


Our TRUaccuracy™ technology ensures highly-accurate measurements, regardless of the measurement environment (instability, vibrations, thermal variation, etc.) or operator skills.

  • With the dynamic referencing mode of the C-Track, the coordinate system can be literally “locked” onto the part(s) being measured, thus maintaining part alignment during the entire 3D scanning process.
  • With the automatic alignment function, manual operation is no longer needed during the alignment phase and root cause errors are drastically reduced.
  • With the fast user calibration process using a certified gauge, the MetraSCAN delivers constant accuracy during its entire life cycle.
  • With the continuous monitoring of parameters (temperature, accuracy, etc.), constant accuracy is ensured during the entire useful life of products.

- Portable CMM

Powered by the C-Track™ dual-camera sensor, The HandyPROBE is a portable measurement solution and probing system. This product relies on a unique combination of advanced photogrammetry and powerful digital image processing which generate high accuracy data, increased and speed of measurement process on or off the production line.

The HandyPROBE™

  • provides agility and portability with freedom of movement
  • Enhances productivity and quality significantly

The C-Track™ dual-camera sensor is fitted with high quality optics and special lighting, enabling it to measure reflectors within its operating space. In addition to tracking the whole system’s reference model, the C-Track performs continuous image acquisition and transmission, lighting of reflectors, wireless communication with the HandyPROBE stylus, management of the exchanges with the computer and storage of the sensor parameters.



The HandyPROBE is a powerful arm-free inspection tool. Measures acquired can be efficiently imported into most inspection software for quick processing

Additional applications

  • Multi-shot measurement (up to 30 points/sec.)
  • First article inspection
  • Part-to-CAD analysis
  • Conformity assessment of 3D models against the original parts/production tooling
  • Supplier quality inspection
  • Manual and automated statistical analysis 


  • Automotive and transport equipment production
  • Machine tool production
  • Metallurgy and metal processing
  • Manufacturing, casting and assembling
  • Forming, molding
