Tools Enable Automatic Part-to-CAD Verification
Methods Machine Tools offers the VisionGauge digital optical comparator system and its new CAD Auto-Align and Auto Pass/Fail software tools, developed by VisionX Inc., to enable users to automatically compare a part to its CAD data in real-time.
The Auto-Align tool automatically aligns the CAD data to the part, producing repeatable and accurate results that are completely operator-independent, the company says. It supports both X-Y and X-Y-rotation alignment of the CAD drawing to the part.
