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.

  • Working With Your Working Gage Blocks

    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.

  • 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.

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
