Hexagon Metrology officially announced the commercial availability of ROMER measuring arm packages equipped with PC-DMIS Touch Portable, a new measurement software. Utilizing high-resolution Multi-Touch display technology on a tablet PC, users physically interact with the software’s guided measurement sequences and report templates.product10_IN

PC-DMIS Touch offers an entirely new look, feel and workflow to complete measurement tasks. One-time dimensions are executed through intuitive automated measurement sequences while more complex measurement plans are created by simply following guided measurement sequences and measuring features directly on the part. A graphical representation of the measured features is always displayed in the center of the interface—right where it’s needed—during all measurement tasks.

PC-DMIS Touch organizes measurement plan features intuitively by “Face,” a new concept for the traditional work-plane. The user is guided through measurement processes using a full set of inspection tools, such as simple feature measurement, construction of features or feature sets, 2-D and 3-D dimensional reporting, GD&T configuration and more. Each of these tasks follows a consistent, intuitive sequence that is quickly learned with minimal training. PC-DMIS Touch also allows for execution of existing PC-DMIS routines with a simple swipe of the finger.

The PC-DMIS Touch interface is particularly well suited to ROMER portable arm users. The ROMER arm’s zero-g counterbalance design that allows single-handed operation leaves the second hand free to interact with the touch screen. Non-repetitive measuring activities that are typical of measuring arms are ideal for the PC-DMIS Touch no-programming-required interface.
