February 26, 2013 - Using parameter-driven graphical interface, PC-DMIS Gear v2.5 accelerates inspections of helical spur, bevel gears, and pinions. Expert and non-expert operators can build gear inspection routines by completing rules-driven form, then choosing desired inspection report(s) from pre-defined, standard formats. Users can also create measurement alignment and probe qualification routines to completely automate inspection process. Software is compatible with standard CMMs and also runs on vision CMMs.

Intuitive graphical interface simplifies gear measurement routines

North Kingstown, RI – Hexagon Metrology today announced the release of PC-DMIS Gear 2.5, a sophisticated software module designed for basic and advanced gear measurement applications. The new version simplifies measurement routines by using a parameter-driven graphical interface to speed inspections of helical spur, bevel gears and pinions. PC-DMIS Gear 2.5 software is compatible with standard CMMs, eliminating the need to invest in separate gear measurement equipment. The software also runs on vision CMMs for inspection applications of small spur gears. PC-DMIS is an integrated metrology system used for developing inspection routines, measuring parts, managing data, evaluating and reporting results. PC-DMIS Gear 2.5 is developed by Hexagon Metrology, the largest software developer in the metrology industry.

Expert and non-expert operators can quickly build gear inspection routines by first completing a rules-driven form, then choosing the desired inspection report(s) from a set of pre-defined, standard formats. The software then automatically generates the program and inspection reports. Users can also create measurement alignment and probe qualification routines to completely automate the inspection process. PC-DMIS Gear supports a wide range of international standards including AGMA 2000-A88, DIN 3962, JIS B 1702 and ISO 1328.

“PC-DMIS Gear is a very cost-effective inspection method as compared to expensive, dedicated gear measurement equipment,” states Ken Woodbine, President of Hexagon Metrology’s software division. “The software interface has been enhanced and simplified even entry-level operators can run inspection routines accurately. Utilizing forms, wizards and pre-defined routines, users can calibrate probes, define datums, and measure and evaluate gears in record time.”
