Hexagon Metrology Follow interactive part measurement with the touch of a fingertip
Hexagon Metrology’s PC-DMIS Touch user interface is said to guide the user through measurement tasks when using portable arms and DCC Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM).
According to the supplier, the multi-touch high-resolution display technology allows the user to physically interact with measurement sequences, feature variables and report templates.
One-off dimensions are executed through intuitive automated measurement sequences, the company reported. More complex measurement plans are created by simply measuring the features directly on the part, Hexagon Metrology explained. It added that a graphical representation of the measured features is always displayed in the centre of the interface, right where it’s needed, during all measurement tasks.
The PC-DMIS Touch organises measurement plan features intuitively by “Face”, which is said to be a new concept for the traditional work-plane. The company said that with this type of organisation, the user is guided through a full set of inspection tools, such as construction of features or feature sets, 2D and 3D dimensional reporting, GD&T configuration and much more.
The supplier noted that PC-DMIS Touch also makes inspection reporting easier with real-time report generation. As features are measured, the user selects whether or not to display all or part of the corresponding data on the report while at the same time updating feature nominal and tolerance data. A quick swipe to the right provides instant access to the report with a statistical view of how the measured features are stacking up against their respective tolerance requirements, according to the supplier.
