Creaform Unveils the HandyPROBE Next Portable CMM

Creaform 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. The CMM is perfect for 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.

Features Include:

  • 2X more accurate measurements: Volumetric accuracy of 0.064 mm (0.0025 in.)—ASME B89.4.22 compliant
  • Instant measurement: HandyPROBE Next’s wireless probe enables the instant capture of coordinates
  • Greater, extendable measurement volume: Can be easily and dynamically extended
  • New ergonomic, sturdy design for shop-floor hardware reliability
  • Available in Standard and Elite versions


“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.
