Test & Measuring Instruments, Software

Industrial Gauge is cell-ready with software and process monitor.

December 17, 2014

Equator™ Flexible Gauge works with EZ-IO software, which facilitates cell controller communications configuration and allows intelligent functions, such as automatic re-mastering, upon detection of change in shop floor temperature and then directs robot/shuttle system to load master part into gauge. Process Monitor display provides graphical chart of history of feature measurements and enables management of mastering process according to temperature, time, or number of parts measured. Read More

Shop-Floor Comparative Gauge supports two probing technologies.

September 19, 2014

Equator™ supports touch-trigger probing via TP20 probe for single-point probing applications. Suited for in-line gauging tasks, TP20 can be used for capture of discrete point data. Equator can also switch automatically to SP25 scanning module, which allows continuous scanning of features at speeds to 200 mm/s, and use integrated changing rack to provide any combination of measurement routines. Gauge uses principle of mastering to cope with changes in temperature on shop floor and offers Feature Compare function. Read More

Laser Radar Sensor delivers high accuracy, dynamic positioning.

June 3, 2014

Fanbeam provides repetitive dynamic positioning to offshore support vessels and other marine structures. While adding performance and stability through control software that increases reliability of single-target tracking capability, system allows multiple operator stations for when control needs to be transferred between bridge personnel. Target tracking and modeling prevent spurious targets from causing drive off, and intelligent clutter rejection provides clear signals. Read More

Mini Incremental Optical Encoder has filtering optics, AGC, AOC.

March 19, 2014

With readhead as small as 6.7 x 12.7 x 20.5 mm, ATOM™ non-contact optical linear and rotary incremental encoder system uses filtering optics with Auto Gain Control (AGC) and Auto Offset Control (AOC) for optimal signal stability and dirt immunity. Encoder offers analog speeds to 20 m/sec (29,000 rpm on 17 mm disc) and digital resolutions to 1 nm when used with Renishaw interpolation electronics. Scale options include linear and rotary (angle) scales in stainless steel and glass. Read More


Laser Calibration Analysis Software offers error compensation.

March 7, 2014

Compatible with ML10, XL-80, and XR20-W laser calibration systems, XCal-View lets user select, edit, and format data in variety of graph formats. Generic error compensation allows assessment of machine errors and creation of linear compensation files, while zero-point shifting function allows data to be offset so that effective "0" position is different from one used for data capture. Data can be transferred to other programs such as MS Excel, and PDF reports can be generated and printed.

Comparative Gauging System offers instant inspection status.

December 9, 2013

Equipped with process monitoring software, Equator displays measurement results of inspected features, as well as measurement history of each feature, instantly via monitoring window in shop-floor user interface. Organizer front-end software works with MODUS™ program to let operators manage re-mastering process based on temperature limits, number of parts, or time since last master. Status bargraph shows inspection results for last part measured as proportion of tolerance either side of nominal. Read More

Test & Measuring Instruments

Rotary Axis Calibrator measures angular position to ±1 arc sec.

March 18, 2013

Operating with XL-80 or ML10 laser interferometers, Model XR20-W wirelessly measures angular position of rotary axes for testing accuracy of lathes, multi-axis machine tools, trunnion tables, and spindles. Off-axis rotary software allows XR20-W to be used even when it cannot be positioned directly on rotary axis under test. Software calculates true position and records axis performance and errors when compared to intended target. Test results are sent to PC via Bluetooth® connection. Read More

Test & Measuring Instruments

Comparative Gauge accommodates tall and fixtured parts.

January 31, 2013

Equator 300 can inspect features on parts up to 300 mm tall as well as those attached to machining fixtures, with changeover to smaller parts using extended fixture plate spacer. Space below gauging system facilitates automated part handling with robots and conveyors. This alternative to traditional dedicated gauging can switch between parts in seconds, offers push-button operation, and uses fixturing that positions parts to within 1 mm of where master was measured.
