It has a direct measuring range of up to 50 millimeters and an application range of up to 100 millimeters. Menu guide operators and measurements are performed systematically using function keys. MAHR FEDERAL INC. (401) 784-3275 WWW.MAHRFEDERAL.COM INSPECTION SOFTWARE PowerINSPECT is hardware-independent inspection software with inspection routines for taking simple measurements, inspecting geometric features and analyzing complex 3-D surfaces. It has point, wireframe and surface export for measured entities, the ability to inspect along the edge of a part and alignment for complex freeform shapes. DELCAM (877) 335-2261 WWW.DELCAM.COM PORTABLE LASER SCANNER The Mobilscan3D system was designed to accommodate different types of interchangeable laser sensors to adapt to different sizes and shapes of parts. The system has blue laser technology, which has a short wavelength and produces a constant fine laser line thickness through the measurement area. The blue laser line produces less speckle than red laser technology and has improved focusing capabilities, as well as a line projection of 50 micron laser thickness. WENZEL SCANTEC +49 (0) 8463 61 99 900 WSCANTEC.COM LINEAR POSITION SENSOR The MLW Series of long stroke linear position sensors are designed for position measurement of displacements up to 1.2 meters. They are available in ranges of 300 millimeters to 1,200 millimeters. They are contactless linear position transducers that are meant for hydraulic cylinder and actuator feedback applications where the sensor can either be mounted externally or embedded into the cylinder or actuator body. MACRO SENSORS (856) 662-8000 WWW.MACROSENSORS.COM DATA INTERFACE ACCESSORY Capture is an accessory for the Laser Microgage industrial measuring and alignment system. It allows operators to take measurement readings from four remote laser receivers to analyze the alignment and performance of their production machinery and industrial equipment. It is a Windows-based application that records incoming readings, displays results, allows for added control and interfaces with spreadsheets and statistical analysis packages. Measurement readings also can be stored in the Laser Microgage display and then uploaded to a PC or laptop. PINPOINT LASER SYSTEMS (800) 757-5383 WWW.PINLASER.COM ERROR COMPENSATION SYSTEM The MAG volumetric error compensation (VEC) system can analyze and correct positioning errors in all machine-tool axes simultaneously. It reduces the time to determine needed error compensations from days to hours, and integrates both linear and rotary axes into the tool point compensation process. It was designed to improve machining accuracies for large machine tools needed to produce large and complex-shaped parts. MAG (425) 880-6869 WWW.MAG-IAS.COM DIGITAL OPTICAL COMPARATOR The VisionGauge digital optical comparator is aligned in a vertical configuration. Its parts are mounted flat on the system’s XY stage and the lens looks down on the parts. This model has the same standard options as the horizontal configuration, including reflected illumination, a laser module for Z-axis measurements, motorized rotary fixtures and a fifth monitor. METHODS MACHINE TOOLS (978) 443-5388 WWW.METHODSMACHINE.COM 3-D SCANNERS The Gomatos Triple Scan series of 3-D scanners has blue LED light source technology and new pattern projection techniques. The scanners measure shiny and dark colored surfaces, difficult to capture areas, automatic scan patch geometry based alignment, intelligent software providing data quality checks, measurement history and parametric based inspection capabilities. CAPTURE 3D (714) 546-7278 WWW.CAPTURE3D.COM ANALYTICAL SOFTWARE STATISTICA 10 is the newest version of the analytic software and has 64-bit CPU technology and highly optimized multithreading. The software’s functions are optimized using advanced multithreading technology so that they can take advantage of multiple cores or processors. It is integrated with Microsoft Sharepoint, so documents can be checked in and checked out of SharePoint from within the operator interface. STAT SOFT (918) 749-1119 WWW.STATSOFT.COM DATA LOGGING SYSTEM The LogMessage system was designed to record data for applications such as remote monitoring, product testing, quality and reliability testing, process monitoring, research and development, and fault analysis.
