PC-based metrology software retrofits to CMMs, video measuring microscopes

May 2, 2014

Heidenhain offers a version 3.0.3 of its PC-based IK 5000 Quadra-Chek metrology software for new and used quality control inspection equipment. The software, which operates on 32- or 64-bit PCs using the Microsoft® Windows® 7 or 8 operating system, can retrofit to such inspection equipment as CMMs and video measuring microscopes for 2-D and 3-D measuring tasks.

Features include improved functions in automatic video edge detection and auto-focus functionality. CNC capabilities give video inspection users a variety of options that enable automated, hands-free inspection. A field of view inspection option also is available.

CMM users can use the optional 3-D profiling capability, which offers graphic evaluation of 3-D contours, comparing CAD files (either STEP or IGES) to the actual measured part.
