At the recent Southtec Show in Greenville, SC, USA, the manufacturers of the zCAT – Fowler Precision unveiled the new way to use zCAT with Verisurf software.
zCAT now works seamlessly with Verisurf as a single, integrated system. The combination of a lightweight footprint, battery-operated convenience, and Verisurf Automate’s unique point-and-click inspection plan builder make the zCat with Verisurf solution an easy business decision.
The Verisurf software solution for zCAT is based on the very powerful Verisurf CAD/MEASURE/AUTOMATE otherwise known as the Verisurf CMM Programming and Inspection Suite.
We are pleased to announce that one of our overseas Partners – 8tree and specifically their dentCHECK® product that platform analyzes surface deformation problems, has been selected as a finalist in the sensors, test and measurement and optical measurement systems category in the 2015 Photonics Technology Awards by LASER World of PHOTONICS at their Startup World exhibition in Munich, Germany later this month.
Whether it is a dent, a bump or general surface waviness, dentCHECK® delivers clear, accurate and instantly actionable analysis. This allows operators to promptly fix the problem without wrestling with the traditional learning curve of a new measurement tool.
Existing configurations of the dentCHECK® product platform are tailored to addressing chronic problems across several industries, including Aerospace, Automotive, Oil & Gas infrastructure and White-Goods. New variants of dentCHECK® are continuously being adapted to address challenging problems in new markets.
The latest in Touch Software for portable metrology devices is receiving its USA launch at the upcoming IMTS Expo in Chicago September 8th-13th.
The software is being exhibited by a global supplier of mobile metrology technology on its portable measuring arms.
TouchPortable extends the operation of portable metrology devices negating the users from the incumbency of the PC mouse and uses Touch to interact with both CAD models and measuring software. TouchPortable sets the new standard in measuring usability and productivity.
TouchPortable from the Next Metrology Software Company offers metrology equipment users a common software platform with its TouchDMIS software for use on traditional Coordinate Measuring Machines.
Latest Generation Portable Measuring Arm Technology
Verisurf Software introduces the all-new Master3DGage – the affordable and portable rapid 3D inspection and reverse-engineering solution that enables machine shops to significantly increase production and improve part quality. The complete hardware and software solution delivers automated ‘in-process’ inspection right to the shop floor. Master3DGage quickly verifies manufactured parts directly to 3D CAD models or 2D drawings. When no data or drawings are available the Master3DGage is a powerful, easy-to-use reverse engineering solution.
The New Master3DGage solution has been designed to close the loop in the digital manufacturing workflow,” said Ernie Husted, President of Verisurf Software, Inc. “Manufacturers can not only extend a 3D model based workflow from CAD to CAM to Computer Aided Inspection, but they can also reverse engineer parts into the 3D model based process thus improving quality, saving time and eliminating drawings.
Master3DGage integrates the latest Hexagon Metrology Portable CMM with Absolute Encoders with Verisurf X advanced 3D model-based inspection and reverse engineering software. The complete solution is a highly accurate and powerful toolset that is easy to learn, operate and maintain.
Rapid Three-Step Inspection
Align: Align the manufactured part to the 3D CAD model by probing the part to corresponding alignment targets on the 3D CAD model.
Inspect: Inspect a manufactured part in real-time by probing any surface or by following repeatable automated inspection plans.
Report: Report inspection results in industry standard formats with intelligent GD&T and colour deviation maps for clear, practical analysis.
Rapid Three-Step Reverse Engineering
Measure: Contact scan or probe 3D complex profile surfaces or prismatic features including planes, cylinders, cones and spheres or capture 2D features including lines, splines, circles and slots.
Mesh: Powerful point cloud and STL mesh editing tools help prepare large data sets for 3D mesh surfacing. In many cases, STL models can go straight to 3D printing!
Model: Transform 3D point clouds and meshes into 3D NURB surfaces or even solid models for precision manufacturing.
