Quality View Mode is a software option that configures the CL5 Precision Thickness Gage to more quickly capture and communicate inspection data to Microsoft Excel or a third-party quality analysis software program. The software is available with the purchase of the data recorder for all current and future owners of the gage. The gage can be used in the aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, and power generation industries, as both a quality control and production metrology tool. It can be used to spot check the thickness of incoming material on metal or plastic components, and to monitor mechanical shaping or fabrication operations by carrying out incoming, intermediate and final thickness measurements. The software is compatible with a range of contact and delay line transducers, which allows it to make, capture and review more than 250 precision measurements on each individual workpiece.
