3D inspection software measures, determines part profiles

Posted: 23 Jul 2013 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share


Hiedehain has debuted its IK 5000 QUADRA-CHEK PC software system. The software provides operators with the ability to quickly measure and determine parts profiles within desired tolerance zones. The optional 3D feature compares the actual measured part to a three-dimensional model within the PC software, making inspection a breeze, especially useful on CMMs.

The 3D Profiling imports a computer-generated 3D model using IGES or STEP formats and then takes measurement points on the desired part. This new function fits and compares the two within the IK5000, and then both the overall profile and the individual point results can be toleranced, printed, and/or exported for evaluation.

The measurement and evaluation routines of 3D contours using the IK5000 make inspection on CMMs and multi-sensory measurement inspection machines easy. These part programs can then be used to take measurements of subsequent parts either manually or in an automated measuring process depending on the machine design.

Other functions of the 3D Profiling option include the ability to orient and align the model in all possible degrees of freedom, as well as to apply profile tolerances for any of the lines and surfaces either as an overall tolerance or specific to individual features or surfaces.

The IK5000 software is a PC-based inspection software and hardware package, used for 2D and 3D measuring tasks. The 3D Profiling add-on option is integrated into the standard operating software of the IK5000, allowing use of the entire software package as normal and turned on when needed.

The Hiedehain IK 5000 QUADRA-CHEK with 3D Profiling is available in versions for 3 and 4 axes, the optional expansions make it ready for all coordinate measuring technology applications.
