3D Metrology Software Paving The Way To Industry 4.0

At the upcoming Control exhibition, visitors will be able to explore Metrologic Group expertise with an immersive experience in its ‘end-to-end’ 3D metrology software with numerous interactive demonstrations with different technologies and inspection devices.

Presentations will highlight the ability of the Metrologic Group software suite to virtually program and get the most out of all types of 3D measurement devices and technologies, including the most challenging point clouds. In short, how Metrologic Group can be any manufacturing industrial’s best partner to take off for smart 3D measurement.

Measurement Monitoring Focus

Metrologic Group’s new X4 i-Monitor, is a web-based application which offers the simultaneous monitoring of the usage rate of 3D metrology machines providing the operator with insightful information with which they can better plan and increase productivity.

The application enables operators to track measuring machine’s key performance indicators in real-time providing  operators with data on the time the machine has been in use, lying idle or time spent correcting errors. Results can be viewed on a dashboard, some of which are presented as graphs, providing a complete measurements picture at a glance.

“i-Monitor will be a useful addition to X4 users, as operators will have access to the data twenty-four seven and be able to see the dashboard remotely, removing the need to be in front of the machine”, says Vincent Doux, Product Manager at Metrologic Group.

Mixing Real and Virtual 3D Inspection

Metrologic’s X4 i-Holo, mixing real and virtual 3D inspection, is now available with Microsoft HoloLens 2. X4 i-Holo offers an immersive experience with mixed reality inspection with the Microsoft HoloLens 2 and the X4 i-Holo application.

X4 i-Holo provides an easy-to-use and simple collaborative tool (voice commands, gesture) with an interactive human interface. Metrolog X4 sends the data to the HoloLens 2 in real-time, which allows for immediate and on location detection of major defects and quick response planning for a collaborative manufacturing or engineering review of the real part.

Two Distinct scenarios Addressed by X4 i-Holo

Probing Assistance: In which use of an arm or a laser tracker, X4 i-Holo assists the user by displaying measurement instructions, digital readout, counter and measurement guides (especially when using the Build & Inspect tools), as well as results.

Results Analysis: Just look at the feature to display its related sticker, as well as superimpose color mapping on the real part to observe deviations at a glance in real time or for review collaborative meetings.

X4 i-Holo may be used for manual measurement, with operator guidance, to report results analysis in real-time over the measured part.
