Software release V18 release for Metrolog X4 & Silma X4 has been announed by Metrologic Group providing new features to improve measuring performance, productivity, and data interpretation. A few of the highlights are featured below:
Geometric Tolerance – New algorithms for New Scenarios
The Metrologic Group software solution adheres to the standards of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing which evolve regularly. New algorithms and calculation criteria have been added that support new scenarios encountered by major customers.
– Support for CZ and SZ symbols for locations / surface profiles and flatness;
– Calculation of line and surface profiles in external material tangent (EC and GE);
– Calculation of line profiles in Unit Basis.
Metrologic developments in this field have always focused on simplifying and improving the interpretation, evaluation, and exploration of the results of geometric tolerances from CAD models.
Renishaw Ultrasonic Probe: Measuring Workpiece Thickness
Faced with growing market demand for this type of technology, Metrologic are continuing to integrate the Renishaw 5-axis REVO solution and provide its enhanced functionalities which now included supporting the latest ultrasonic probe (RUP) from Renishaw for measuring material thickness.
The use of ultrasound for single-sided thickness measurements has obvious advantages over traditional tactile probing techniques for parts whose internal features are difficult to access. The new functionalities, associated with the measuring technology, have been integrated into both Metrolog and Silma products to allow customers to plan their trajectories without soliciting the production measuring machine.
Gear Module Automation: Using Variables to Simplify Programs
The Metrologic Group have devoted several years to developing a module to measure and analyze gears with regularly updates to address the specfic customer needs.
This latest development allows variables to be used in the gear-measurement process thanks to input data transmitted by an automated system. This allows programmers to simplify the main program so that it automatically updates the measurement trajectory and the analysis parameters.
