Heidenhain’s Quadra-Chek (QC) 2000 evaluation unit is designed for everyday part measuring and metrology tasks. Measuring point acquisition uses crosshairs, optical edge detection on profile projectors, measuring microscopes and 2D measuring machines with up to three axes.

For complex and repetitive measuring tasks, QC 2000 users can automatically record a measuring program and run it at any time. A digital readout keeps track of the presets, sequence of measurements, tolerances and data-output commands. When the recorded measuring program is executed again, the QC 2000 displays visual instructions relating to the features to be probed, thereby providing direct and repeatable guidance for the user.

The QC 2000’s Measure Magic function uses the acquired measuring points to automatically select the matching geometry, enabling repeatability and reducing measurement uncertainty.

All measurement results are graphically displayed on the unit’s high-resolution 7" color touchscreen. The integrated measurement report function creates a report upon completion, documenting results in the form of a PDF or CSV file. These measurement reports contain the measurement and tolerance results as well as additional information.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

    A laser scanning system helps this shop capture the free-form surfaces on a hand-sculpted original. The resulting digitized models are the basis for CAM applications such as programming a CNC machining center. 

  • Gaging Countersunk And Chamfered Holes

    While countersunk and chamfered holes are similar in appearance, functionally they are quite different. Consequently, different gages exist to serve these different functional requirements.
