The company’s metrology solutions earn praise for their functional and unique design.

 

Creaform, a worldwide leader in portable and highly accurate 3D measurement solutions, announced today that it has won the 2017 Good Design Award in Japan for its optical CMM solution and 3D scanners, which include MetraSCAN 3D, HandyPROBE Next and C-Track.

 

The Good Design Award is hosted by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion. Submissions for the awards come from a wide range of fields and approximately 1200 designs are recognized each year.

This philosophy is perfectly aligned with the Institute's design and awards philosophy.”

 

“Creaform has always been dedicated to the Japanese market, investing just recently in a brand-new million-dollar facility near Tokyo. This award is a symbol of our growing expertise in the distinctive metrology needs of Japanese manufactures,” added Carl Mercier, Head of Sales – Asia-Pacific.

 

Creaform will receive its Good Design Award on November 1 and the products will be exhibited during the Good Design Exhibition 2017, which will take place from November 1 to 5, 2017 in Tokyo, Japan.
