Metrology Software Provides Increased Functionality

HEIDENHAIN’s latest version of its PC-based QUADRACHEK Metrology software is designed to provide advanced functionality for inspection measurement machines. This software makes it possible to perform 2D and 3D measuring tasks in the field of metrology when standard DRO products will not suffice. The IK5000 version 2.96.2 inspection package builds upon the originalMetronics QUADRA-CHECK QC5000 software by introducing new functionality such as 3D profiling capabilities that can provide measurement and graphic evaluation of 3D contours using multisensor and tactilemeasuringmachines. This new option, used for profile measfile (either STEP or IGES) and compare it with the actual measured part.<br /> <br /> This version now supports new Auto Focus functionality to allow for the desired search distance to be directly entered into the search distance field. Previously the algorithm used the Teach function to determine the optimum search distance and Z-axis velocity depending on the camera frame rate, which could cause intermittent failures depending on the part surface and if it was significantly different from the surface used during the Teach process.<br /> <br /> Part Programming improvements were added to support compensation for the thermal behavior of products that experience a shrinkage or growth of material during the manufacturing process. Thiswill allow users to write a single inspection program for measuring parts with materials having a known growth or shrink rate throughout the manufacturing process.<br /> <br /> Improvements were also added to currently existing Radial and Palletize methods of automatic part programming routines. These methods are designed to help users when there are common features or parts that repeat angularly, around a datumor based on a palletized grid layout. On Video- Based Inspection machines, these improvements will retain specific video tool sizes and the positions needed for these measurements, and then repeat them based on the angle they are located around the datumor in reference to a linear layout. The new Palletize grid functionality will also allow the user to graphically select which parts in the grid are required for measurement, and only run the program in those locations.<br /> <br /> The IK5000 version 2.96.2 now also offers compatibility for Pcs using Windows 7 (32-bit) operating systems as well as Windows XP and Vista.<br /> <br /> For more information contact:<br /> HEIDENHAIN CORPORATION<br /> 333 E.
