Creaform’s latest generation of handheld 3D scanners receives the esteemed Red Dot Award for the distinction of their ahead-of-the-curve designs and great innovations.
Creaform is an international leader in automated and portable 3D measurement solutions and a business unit of AMETEK- they have recently announced their brand-new HandySCAN BLACKTM and Go!SCAN SPARKTM, and have won the Red Dot Award for Product Design- 2 awards to be exact.
HandySCAN BLACK has blue laser 3D scanning technology and allows for dimensional measurements for a multitude of stringent metrology applications. Because of the instinctive nature of the scanner, the HandySCAN BLACK was built to highlight its visible optical lenses and PC board.
The statement by the Red Dot jury on the HandySCAN BLACK: “The sleek design of the 3D handheld scanner skillfully reflects its high precision. Thanks to its matte-black background, the bold signature lines are clearly visible.”
The Go!SCAN SPARK is Creaform’s white-light 3D scanner that used for product development and is also known for its design. The Go!SCAN SPARK’s design is compact and features angular lines on its sides, and has four integrated cameras for an easy and quick scanning experience. Red Dot’s statement on the Go!SCAN SPARK: “The clearly defined style elements of the Go!SCAN SPARK underscore its high quality. Easy handling makes scanning a pleasure.”
“These are Creaform’s fourth and fifth Red Dot Awards in the past few years, which attests to how much Creaform believes in the crucial role that design and ergonomics play in the overall user experience,” explained Marco St-Pierre, the company’s Vice-President, Innovation and Technologies.
“With the HandySCAN BLACK and Go!SCAN SPARK, our industrial designer teams pushed the design language to a whole new level—with dramatic results. Not only do these new solutions offer unrivalled 3D scanning performance and accuracy, but they also do so in frictionless ways that improve usability,” Mr St-Pierre added. “We are immensely proud that the Red Dot Jury recognized this feat
