ORLANDO, Florida and STUTTGART, Germany and SHANGHAI, October 13, 2010 - Creaform, a world-class company offering 3D technology and engineering
services, today introduced the high-end MetraSCAN 3D scanner as the logical
complement to the HandyPROBE optical CMM. Powered by the C-Track(TM)
dual-camera sensor, the MetraSCAN increases the reliability, speed and
versatility of the measurement process like no other scanner before.

Featuring Creaform's TRUaccuracy(TM) technology, the MetraSCAN ensures
highly-accurate dimensional measurements regardless of the measurement
environment (instability, vibrations, thermal variations, etc.) or operator
skills. "This is what metrologists want," stated Product Manager and former
metrologist Daniel Brown. "Scanning, probing, gap and flush analysis, shiny
part inspection and fine surface detail acquisition can be performed quickly
through an integrated and uninterrupted process that is above all compliant
with the most stringent industry standards."

"Clearly, optics is now the future of metrology; we can already see this
trend happening," indicated President Charles Mony. "Not only do optical
measurement solutions allow greater precision in real conditions, faster
set-up and less maintenance, but they are also easier to use and more
portable. Creaform remains ahead of the pack when it comes to optical
measurement. We are dedicated to providing metrologists with solutions that
will help them improve their productivity."
