CAD-Based Inspection Software

August 31, 2007
The latest version of CAD-based inspection software PowerINSPECT includes support for multi-axis on-machine verification, improved ease of use and compatibility with the AIMS Metrology system. The new compatibility with AIMS will allow seamless sharing of CAD geometry, inspection plans and measurement results between PowerINSPECT and other hardware and software platforms. The multi-axis option for on-machine verification will allow companies with four-, five- or six-axis equipment to undertake comprehensive verification of their parts on complex machine tools both during and after machining. The main advantage of the new option will be the ability to check undercut regions without any need to reposition the work piece.
