High QA and Verisurf Form Integration Partnership
The companies have partnered to provide an integration solution that is designed to streamline shopfloor quality inspection workflows.
The High QA and Verisurf integrated solution automates the measurement, inspection and reporting process.
The integrated solution automates the measurement, inspection and reporting process, providing real-time comparisons of finished parts to 3D CAD models, annotated PDFs and 2D drawings, Verisurf says. The High QA flagship product, Inspection Manager, is designed to allow for the automatic ballooning of drawings and creation of bill of characteristics in minutes. CAD-based Verisurf 3D measurement and inspection software reportedly provides measurement data collection and analysis, with support for most CAD file formats and new and legacy CMMs, including portable arms, trackers, scanners, and fixed CNC CMMs.
“Quality assurance is more important than ever,” said Sam Golan, founder & CEO of High QA, “This integration partnership with Verisurf further ensures a streamlined workflow for manufacturers. The more steps in the process you can automate, the less human error that is likely to occur.”
“At Verisurf, our focus is on practical measurement and inspection solutions that support the manufacturing enterprise; this requires our software to be open and compatible with ever-evolving metrology tools and processes,” commented Ernie Husted, president and CEO of Verisurf Software, “Verisurf and High QA share in a common goal to provide customers with measurement and inspection solutions that are flexible, easy to learn, and easy to use.”
Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
Guidelines used to standardize the measuring process can provide a good basis for making gage decisions.
Here are some of the tools and techniques for making sure machine tools stay at peak performance levels.
