Results crush the rest

As part of its quest for continued growth, excellence and product diversification, Coalville-based CMS Cepcor has recently invested in the latest Creaform HandySCAN3D from Measurement Solutions.

CMS Cepcor is one of Europe’s largest aftermarket manufacturer and supplier of premium quality stone crusher, screen and asphalt plant spare parts. The company provides crusher products and services globally to the mining, quarrying, demolition and recycling industries, exporting to over 100 countries.

Operations Director Chris Sydenham is constantly looking at new technologies and capabilities to drive improved efficiencies, customer satisfaction and product diversification. The key to aftermarket success is response time and product availability, two factors that were significant during the decision-making process.

He explains: “The Measurement Solutions team was able to visit our facility and demonstrate a device which is truly portable. Although we design and manufacture in the UK, having the ability to take the HandySCAN3D abroad is a major advantage, as the whole system is transported in a carrying case no larger than aircraft hand luggage. This gives us a whole new capability of scanning on-site, with the ability to send the data back to the UK to begin the reverse engineering or inspection processes before our engineer has even boarded the plane back home.”

Tom Quinzi, Design Engineer, adds: “The handheld market in particular offers white light solutions which have their appeal due to low cost. However, during testing we very quickly realised that such devices are low cost for a reason, as we revealed lost capability on accuracy and the ability to scan a multitude of materials such as shiny or black components.
“In comparison, while the latest generation of portable arms have indeed improved on accuracy, there are some serious limitations in terms of portability, with heavy tripod stands or magnetic mounting required, and slow device move procedures on larger objects. Compared to a truly hand-held device, it was clear that a portable arm does not give us any additional capability and therefore no increased performance gains. In addition, due to the scale of the components manufactured, the large field of view and scanning speeds generated by the HandySCAN3D’s 14 laser lines far surpassed any other system we considered.”
