Measured results are displayed in the form of a fully dimensioned drawing. Dimensions within the specified tolerance are shown in green whilst dimensions out of tolerance are shown in red for immediate visual status of the measured part.
Geometric tolerances can also be displayed using the standard drawing practice. The final dimensioned part view can then be printed as an engineering drawing with a traditional drawing frame containing company details, customer and part details, date and inspection name.
In addition to the graphical representation above, detailed reports can be instantly created showing the feature name, nominal dimension, actual, error, upper and lower limits and a green pass or red fail label for each measured dimension in tabulated format. Geometric tolerance details can also be displayed along with a thumbnail view of the part and batch/customer information. The entire report can be duplicated as an Excel workbook for email.
Video Edge Detection (VED) ensures a repeatable result without relying on the skill of the operator. Hundreds of data points can be taken in an instant to calculate standard geometric features. Standard VED tools include arc, circle, line, point, focus and curve.
A camera image can be taken and stored every time the XY stage is paused. These images may be "stitched" together to allow the user to zoom out and view the entire component in the camera image view. Imported dxf files may be used as overlays which can be super imposed on top of the stitched image, providing a visual comparison of the entire part to the tolerance bands shown on the dxf. If a profile measurement is required the curve tool can be used to automatically trace the profile of the part. The resulting data-point cloud can then be viewed both in the part view, for reporting, as well as the stitched camera image. A profile dimension can easily be added to define the best fit profile error. Image stitching can also be used to quickly grab all of the features of a large 2D component. A CNC inspection routine can then be created by simply clicking on the feature to be measured using the "one click" feature or "all features in an area" tools.
Fusion metrology software is ready to accept touch probe measurements as well as optical and camera based. Offsets for each measuring system can be calculated enabling you to use a combination of non-contact measurements in the same inspection. An optional probe storage rack can also be used to allow automatic probe changes mid program. For touch probe scanning applications, Renishaw's SP25 scanning probe option can be specified.
The CNC option enables fully automatic part inspection with teach and repeat programming and manual joystick control. Parts can be palletised for batch inspection and reports are generated automatically.
Allows measurement data points taken anywhere on the part surface to be compared to a 3D IGES or STEP CAD model.
