QFP becomes Creaform's New Strategic Partner for Automated 3D Metrology Solutions in Europe

QFP will leverage the technological offer of Creaform’s tools for automated 3D metrology in the European market

Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany, February 10th, 2022Creaform, worldwide leader in portable and automated metrology solutions, and QFP, one of the leading Italian metrology companies, have recently announced a strategic partnership to further deploy automated quality control solutions for the European manufacturing industry.

 QFP, one of the main European companies active in metrology services, reverse engineering and related design, carries out its operations from their facilities in Padua and Spoleto in Italy, and is able to offer their expertise to customers all over Europe.       

The agreement signed between Creaform and QFP defines the latter as Creaform's "strategic partner" for automation activities in Europe. This brings added value for both companies’ customers, as it increases the offer of automatic QFP systems, and makes this technology available to even more Creaform customers in Europe.


Starting from Creaform solutions for automated quality control applications, the R-Series™ 3D scanning solutions, QFP will be able to adapt this standard product to customized applications. The QBOX EVOLUTION is designed to meet specific needs of customers. Modification of the layout, additional axes, addition of contour elements such as automatic support devices, integration with production lines, additional control cameras, automatic loading / unloading systems and much more complete the proposal. The dozens of automated QFP installations on the market are proof that attention to the customers’ needs is the most important starting point for creating that "tailored suit" that is sought after.

“The satisfaction of those who successfully use our systems is the most powerful engine to push us to invest energy and resources to perfect our skills” - comments Roberto Mazzetto Director of Sales and Marketing of QFP. “Our expertise as integrator and solution provider is what most distinguishes us from other companies in the sector and sharing these pluses with a company that focuses on the same values is what we were looking for to help our customers and our partners to grow in a healthy and structured way.”

Stefan Hoheisel, Director Global Business Development at Creaform, adds: “The collaboration with QFP brings the already strong proposition of Creaform’s 3D metrology tools, our skills and experience to the next level. The resulting combination of standard and customized automation solutions is a highly professional and complete product offer for the whole manufacturing industry.”
