Edgecam Inspect Creates On-Machine Measurement Cycles

Edgecam Inspect combines metrology tools and know-how from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence with cutting edge manufacturing expertise from Vero Software. Edgecam Inspect is a full featured, easy to use solution for users wanting fast creation of on-machine measurement cycles with quick, efficient tool path creation and generation of reliable, measurement results.

Edgecam Inspect offers unparalleled ease of use and sophisticated probe path generation for both in process and end-item part inspection.

Edgecam Inspect can greatly reduce setup time and error and provide reliable in-process measurement results.

Complex CNC machining operations can now be easily validated with in process measurements. Manufacturers who are producing high value parts can quickly and easily develop probe path and integrate measurement cycles with machining cycles. Edgecam Inspect provides a comprehensive set of geometric features and constructions for measuring part characteristics such as webs, pockets, thickness and heights while the intuitive user interface and work flow allows the user to seamlessly transition from programming CAM cycles to measurement cycles.

Probe Calibration Intelligent algorithms offer the user several choices when calibrating the probe for measurement tasks. Proprietary algorithms for managing probe radius compensation in every measurement scenario ensures the integrity of the measurement results under multi axis measurement scenarios.

Interactive Results Feedback is provided in the form of CMM style report templates along with graphical, color coded deviation information that is displayed on the CAD model. Edgecam Inspect also provides a useful results simulation capability allowing users to produce simulated results offline from the machine providing the opportunity to tailor reports without having to be connected to the machine. Flexible tolerancing options allow for full reporting of measured characteristics with a pass/fail evaluation.
