Kreon
Portable CMMs

Design Meets Performance

Kreon is a portable Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) that provides 3D coordinate measurements for large working volume.

High Accuracy Portable CMM

Kreon Arms are some of the best high accuracy low cost portable CMM’s on the market. Users can quickly and easily capture accurate 3D measurements by tracing the contours of parts through the spring balanced use of the machine. The instruments are temperature compensated for better accuracy and are not affected by the work environment. Kreon Arms are designed for a wide range of measuring applications (reverse engineering, digitization, quality assurance, rapid prototyping, and metrology), making them great additions to shops and labs. They are available in two models: Baces and Ace.

Baces Measuring Arms

Baces measuring arms are built with carbon fiber (Series 100) and aluminum (Series 200) for industrial grade performance that is lightweight yet stable. They have a wide range of models that ranges in working volume and axis options. For Baces 6-axis options, 3D point data and software commands are easily controlled by a three-button probe or by a foot petal. The 7-axis with a handle can be added onto the arm for use with Kreon laser scanners for added flexibility and precision when scanning complex parts.

Highlighted Features:

  • Communicate with PC through USB connection
  • Integrated battery for 8 hours probing or 4 hours scanning (optional)

* For point repeatability and volumetric accuracy, the lower the number means better results.

Our Baces CMM, integrated with Tezet CAD, and Rhino has enabled us to increase quality and decrease design time of our exhaust systems.

Ace measuring Arms

Ace Measuring Arms are Kreon’s high-end portable CMMs where design meets accuracy. With an ergonomical design, users can easily scan for long periods of time with comfort. With the arms’ wireless connection (Wi-Fi) or the Bluetooth technology, work freely without cables for probing applications.

Highlighted Features:

  • High accuracy
  • Carbon fiber construction
  • Switch from probing to non-contact scanning with Kreon laser scanners (Zephyr II blue, Solano blue)
  • Wireless connection (Wi-Fi)
  • Integrated battery for 8 hours probing or 4 hours scanning (optional)
