Measurement Software Update Reduces Alignment Errors
Verisurf Software Inc. has release the first update of Verisurf 2018 measurement software for automated quality inspection and reporting, scanning and reverse engineering, tool building and assembly guidance. Advanced new features in this update are based on customer feedback and deliver increased efficiency as well as improved quality functions.
Auto Align Minimum Zone Fit produces more accurate alignments of parts and features by allowing the centering of alignment errors, which reduces the maximum error result. This new algorithm extends the Verisurf Enhanced Bundle Adjust feature for high-accuracy, large-volume measurements using Leica, Faro and API laser trackers.
CSV Database Support simplifies integration with software partner applications for First Article Inspection (FAI), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), and Statistical Process Control (SPC) such as InspectionXpert and Dimensional Control Systems.
The update’s other enhancements include support for Catia V5 R28 file import; 3D model virtual device display for CMM Master 500 and Renishaw Equator 500; and a Software Development Kit (SDK) support for the import of nine different point cloud and mesh file formats, which improves integration with many brands and models of 3D scanners.
This shop has a plan for dramatically expanding its contract machining business in high-value markets.
The uses of working gage blocks are as varied as the number of gage blocks in a large set. The working blocks have an intermediate grade and are often used in the inspection or calibration lab, but they may also be found on the shop floor.
The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.
