Verisurf Software, Inc. and select resellers worldwide introduced the 3DGageTM at IMTS earlier this month. “The new 3DGage enables manufacturers to quickly implement lean model based inspection right on the shop floor that yield real improvements in production and quality while reducing costs.” says Ron Branch, Product Manager. “With these impressive benefits it’s easy to see why 3D model based measurement systems are revolutionizing manufacturing around the world.”
Powerful Model Based Inspection: The portability and affordability of portable CMM’s combined with 3D model based software is changing design and manufacturing from manual 2D inspection and reverse engineering to highly automated 3D methods that accelerate the process . With the new 3DGage, customers can customize a system to their needs by choosing from four software configurations, four portable CMM configurations and a variety of probe options.
Rapid Three-Step Inspection
1. Align: Align manufactured part to 3D CAD model by probing part to corresponding alignment targets on 3D CAD model.
2. Inspect: Inspect manufactured part in real time by manually probing or by following automated inspection plans.
3. Report: Report inspection results are automatically generated in HTML and Excel formats.
Complete Reverse Engineering Solution: The 3DGage Portable CMM powered by Verisurf X Reverse Engineering software is a complete solution, automating the creation of 3D CAD models from existing parts. Easy to use measuring modes such as; Probe Measuring and Probe Scanning combined with powerful Point Cloud & Mesh Editing, Surface Modeling and Optional Solid Modeling make quick work out of the most complex jobs.
