The new standard, HandyProbe NEXT and MetraScan


Werth Magyarország Kft. started activity on the Hungarian market in 2010 as Werth Messtechnik GmbH affiliate. By the experience of the founder and his technical colleagues however the company is present for almost ten years on the Hungarian metrology /coordinate measurement market.

The Canadian CREAFORM company since its foundation in 2002 – due to innovative techniques and widespread applicability of the devices – has elevated as global leader in the field of portable coordinate measuring machines. In april, 2016, Creaform came out with innovations, wich our company presented in Hungary first at the Ipar Napjai 2016 exhibition.

Creaform, the worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, today announced the release of its new portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM), the HandyPROBE Next. This next-generation, optical-based contact inspection solution addresses the increasing demands of rigorous quality control directly on manufacturers’ production lines.

The HandyPROBE Next features productivity and efficiency enhancements in a more shop-floor-ready design for unprecedentedly accurate part inspections—wherever they need to be performed. Quality control experts who rely on portable tools to validate the dimensional conformity of production tools, jigs, assemblies, sub-assemblies and final products on the shop floor can look forward to:

  • 2X more accurate measurements: Volumetric accuracy of 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.)—ASME B89.4.22 compliant—regardless of environment instabilities, thanks to TRUaccuracy technology
  • Instant measurement: HandyPROBE Next’s wireless probe enables the instant capture of coordinates—all while being free of any rigid measurement setup to help manufacturers keep up with improved quality standards
  • Greater, extendable measurement volume: Can be easily and dynamically extended—unlike measuring arms, which require conventional leapfrogging
  • New ergonomic, sturdy design for shop-floor hardware reliability: Offers an enhanced user experience as well as profitable time and cost benefits for operators
  • Available in Standard and Elite versions: Users can choose a model based on their specific needs
  • And much more! Detailed information about the new functionalities and technical specifications are available on the website.


“Manufacturers are under increasing pressure to integrate more rigorous quality control operations into their production processes, while still maintaining the same efficiency. Aligned with today’s requirements for the efficient production of top-quality products, the HandyPROBE Next delivers versatility, shop-floor accuracy and portability, unlike articulated arms or fixed CMMs. The solution comprehensively addresses quality issues that, if left unattended, can lead to unwanted production and part approval delays, fabrication shortcomings and unexpected costs,” explains Daniel Brown, Senior Product Manager at Creaform.

As part of Creaform’s comprehensive quality control solution, shop-floor operators can add 3D scanning capabilities to their inspection sequence with the MetraSCAN 3D portable CMM scanner. The solution is also fully compatible with VXinspect, Creaform’s dimensional inspection software.

Creaform improved the MetraSCAN 3D laser scanner’s performance.

New version 12X faster can tackle black, multicolored and shiny surfaces with metrology accuracy for applications directly on the shop floor

The MetraSCAN 3D has the accuracy, speed, and flexibility needed in shopfloor conditions.

In addition, the MetraSCAN 3D is very intuitive and easy to use, ensuring short learning curves and operation by any level of user. Customers from the manufacturing, automotive and aerospace industries can look forward to the following enhancements:


  • 5X more accurate: Volumetric accuracy of 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.) regardless of environment instabilities
  • Fastest 3D scanner on the market: Features the highest measurement rate among all laser scanners with 480,000 measurements/second—12 times faster than the previous generation
  • New light, sturdy design for shop-floor hardware reliability: Offers enhanced user experience as well as profitable time and cost benefits for operators
  • Available in 350 and 750 models—and both in Standard and Elite version: Users can choose the speed and accuracy matching their requirements


Thanks to TRUaccuracy, the MetraSCAN 3D’s optical-based data acquisition process provides measurement accuracy for small to large parts and assemblies that are insensitive to the instabilities of the environment. Efficient on black, multicolored and shiny surfaces, the system helps manufacturers to quickly address potential quality control issues at any stage of the production cycle, regardless of part complexity and material.

“Finding a versatile and portable measurement solution that still maintains the same level of performance in busy manufacturing environments can be a tough challenge for quality control managers and production operators,” explains Marco St-Pierre, Vice President, Innovation and Technologies. “With a strong focus on our customers’ application needs, our goal is to make our optical CMM 3D scanner the new face of shop-floor quality control.”

For more in-depth quality control procedures, users can add single-point measurements with the new HandyPROBE Next portable CMM, which, along with the MetraSCAN 3D, is compatible with VXinspect, Creaform’s dimensional inspection software.

With its extendable measuring volume, incredible speed (480,000 measurements/s), shop-floor accuracy and impressive capabilities on challenging materials, the MetraSCAN 3D represents the most complete metrology-grade 3D scanner on the market.
