Creaform (Levis, Quebec) announced the acquisition of ActiCM, a Grenoble, France-based company in the manufacture and marketing of 3D measurement systems, including noncontact robotic 3D measurement, contact optical measurement, and motion capture.
The acquisition of ActiCM’s technology will allow Creaform and its European subsidiary, Euroform France, to consolidate its position in 3D control. The photogrammetry-based technology developed by ActiCM allows 3D control of manufactured parts using simple images of the object to be controlled. This technology is valuable in the automotive and aeronautics fields, both in the control of manufactured parts and the means of production.
With this acquisition, Creaform can offer a range of 100 percent optical technology, says the company.
