non destructive testing

Rapid3D is an Authorized distributor of Creaform’s NDT solution comprised of a HandySCAN 3D laser scanner and the Pipecheck data acquisition/analysis software. Pipecheck is a single software platform addressing both pipeline corrosion and pipeline mechanical damage assessment. Thanks to Creaform’s unique 3D scanning technology and to this innovative software, surface inspection has been reinvented completely!


Surface Inspection for Pipeline Integrity Assessment and MRO Services

Creaform offers the simplest and most accurate NDT surface inspection solution to ensure that business is back in service as quickly as possible. It assesses surface defects, such as corrosion, dents, and mechanical damage.

Working with 3D portable scanners and Pipecheck™ or SmartDENT 3D software is fast and easy for any non-destructive testing technicians. Our solutions provide reliable, accurate and repeatable results, which are traceable and can be revised with new parameters without scanning again.

NDT technicians for pipeline integrity assessment, along with pipeline inspection companies, are facing increasing pressure from regulatory authorities and environmental groups to guarantee pipeline network integrity.

However, their challenge is to inspect them properly and put back pipelines into service as quickly as possible.

Creaform offers an easy, fast, and accurate 3D scanner solution for pipeline integrity assessment.

Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) experts are facing pressure to make sure that in-service aircraft are assessed carefully to ensure public safety.

Aircraft surfaces must be inspected thoroughly to make sure it’s safe, all while putting airplanes back in service as quickly as possible.

Creaform offers an easy, fast, and accurate 3D scanner solution for MRO services.


HandySCAN 3D is Part of the Perfect NDT Solution for Surface Inspection

This 3D scanner has been optimized to meet the needs of integrity engineers looking for the most effective and reliable way to acquire 3D measurements of physical objects.

The metrology-grade portable 3D scanner is part of the perfect NDT solution as it is fast, accurate, portable and easy-to-use. Whether for pipe inspection or aerospace MRO services, this NDT method makes it possible to obtain all the information necessary to maintain the integrity.


HandySCAN 3D scanners are portable, fast, simple to use, and deliver real-time accurate high-resolution 3D scans. The metrology-grade optical 3D scanners have been optimized to meet the needs of pipeline operators looking for the most effective and reliable way to obtain 3D models of damaged pipelines.


Pipecheck software applies ASME B31G and ASME B31.8 integrity assessment principles and offers NDT in-line inspection correlations, dent with stress riser inspections, field bends straightening tools and much more. When ultrasonic testing (UT) data is imported, the corrosion assessment can combine results from the 3D scanner and UT data to produce a truly accurate wall thickness analysis.


The calculation power of Pipecheck makes it extremely easy to produce inspection reports with different analysis parameters for a complete understanding of defect characteristics. Pre-formatted reports can be produced in real-time and on-site to reduce maintenance costs. For a complete reporting experience, users in the field can share the Pipecheck session using the free Pipecheck Viewer.
