THE LATEST PRODUCTS TO HELP YOUR MANUFACTURING PROCESS PORTABLE MEASUREMENT ARM The Faro EdgeArm is a portable measurement arm that allows manufacturers to verify their product quality by performing inspections, tool certifications, computer-aided design (CAD) -to-part analysis and reverse engineering via hard probing and noncontact laser scanning. It has an integrated personal measurement assistant, a built-in touch screen and onboard operating system, and standalone measurement capability. A laptop is no longer needed to perform quick and simple dimensional checks, or to optimize system performance with on-board diagnostic routines. FARO TECHNOLOGIES (800) 736-0234 WWW.FARO.COM ABSOLUTE GAGING PACKAGE The no-drift Absolute Gaging Package is made up of the Acanto Absolute Length Gage with the ND 2100G Gage-Chek metrology readouts. This gaging package was designed for fixed gaging applications. The Acanto has optical encoder capabilities and resolves gage drifting, linearity over the entire measuring range or referencing upon startup. The Acanto’s measuring principle does not drift over time, nor does it require mastering. Two microns of accuracy are held throughout the entire measuring length. It comes in both spring-operated and pneumatically-operated models. HEIDENHAIN (800) 233-0388 WWW.HEIDENHAIN.COM COMPACT TACHOMETER The HT-4200 tachometer weighs less than 4.5 ounces and has an LCD. The HT-4200’s light beam has a range of 12 inches, with a measurement accuracy of 1 revolution per minute (rpm). The device can measure up to 50,000 rpm and measurement setup involves applying a small piece of reflective tape marker or reflective paint to the surface of the object being measured. The tachometer was designed for use in areas with space restrictions and safety concerns.

(800) 537-2720 WWW.APISENSOR.COM SIMULATION PROCESS SOFTWARE Isight 5.5 prov ides designers, engineers and researchers with an open system for integrating design and simulation models—created with various computer aided design (CAD), computer aided engineering (CAE) and other software applications—to automate the execution of up to thousands of simulations. Isight optimizes products against performance or cost metrics through statistical methods such as Design of Experiments (DOE) or Design for Six Sigma. DASSAULT SYSTÈMES (800) 382-3342 WWW.3DS.COM MULTISENSOR METROLOGY SYSTEM The HN-6060 is a noncontact inspection system that has laser scanning capabilities, five-axis synchronized hardware control and can inspect complex shapes including gear teeth, turbine blades and appliance housings. The metrology system’s laser scanner and shape from focus (SFF) sensor uses active texture projection to measure shapes even with glossy surfaces or no surface texture. Touch probes and optical heads have TTL laser AF, which allows it to perform shape measurements of parts such as complex automotive and machined components, molded parts and medical devices. NIKON METROLOGY (810) 220-4314 WWW.NIKONMETROLOGY.COM FOUR-AXIS RECEIVER The four-axis Microgage Receiver has alignment information for evaluating and correcting machinery alignment problems. The 4-D receiver measures two linear axes—X and Y—and their two angular components yaw and pitch. The two linear axes show how well machinery is aligned along a common centerline and the angular readouts show if parallelism problems are present. It was designed for aligning lathes, turning centers and spindles, as well as moving linear slides, rams and pistons, injection molding machinery and moving mechanical subassemblies. PINPOINT LASER SYSTEMS (800) 757-5383 WWW.PINLASER.COM QUALITY MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE The Reliance 8.0 is enterprise quality and compliance management software for identifying, mitigating and preventing high-risk events through integration, automation and collaboration. It has a SharePoint integration feature; a production part approval process to aid suppliers in complying with customer specifications; a failure mode and effects analysis module; and the capability to run test scripts. ETQ INC. (800) 354-4476 WWW.ETQ.COM 3-D WHITE LIGHT MEASUREMENT SYSTEM The manual measurement system Cognitens WLS400M and the automated measurement system Cognitens WLS400A are available in portable configurations and automated systems and can be operated with all common industrial robots. The WLS400 uses digital stereo vision technology to generate 3-D data pertinent to automotive and aerospace applications. The WLS400’s can shoot and capture 3-D surface data in less than 10 milliseconds, and any vibration in frequencies up to hundreds of hertz do not affect the results. The device’s performance also is not impacted by variable lighting or temperature changes. HEXAGON METROLOGY (800) 274-9433 WWW.HEXAGONMETROLOGY.US TOUCH PROBE SYSTEM The WRS is a touch probing system with radio transmission for worldwide use. It is comprised of a wireless touch probe, wireless tool setter and wireless bore gage, all of which communicate via a single radio frequency (RF) receiver. The system can be used on medium-tolarge- sized machining centers and mills. It has 2.4 gigahertz transmission frequency, spherical transmission characteristics and 15-meter operating range. The system was designed for part set up and inspection on large machines. No line-of-sight is necessary between the receiver and transmitter. MARPOSS (248) 370-0404 WWW.MARPOSS.COM IMAGING SOFTWARE MountainsMap 6.1 is the newest version of the MountainsMap surface imaging and analysis software for surface metrology instruments, including confocal microscopes, white light interferometers and scanning probe microscopes. It has calculation speeds up to 16 times faster than in MountainsMap 5.1; second-generation lead analysis for the automotive industry and co-localization of images of the same surface generated by different instrument families. DIGITAL SURF +33 (0) 38150 4800 WWW.DIGITALSURF.FR WHITE LIGHT MULTISENSOR MEASURING MACHINE The O-Inspect multisensor measuring machine inspects complex parts for the electronics and plastics industries, for medical and automotive technology, and precision engineering. The workpiece is illuminated with bundled white light. A spectrometer analyzes the reflected light and determines which color has the highest intensity. The measuring machine can determine the distance from the sensor to the surface using spectral color—and derives the exact topography of the part from this information. The results are displayed using CAD-based Calypso measuring software. It enables extensive size, form and position measurements with systematic user guidance and makes deviations visible and quantifiable. CARL ZEISS INDUSTRIAL METROLOGY (800) 327-9735 WWW.ZEISS.COM/METROLOGY CALIBRATION MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE Manual MET/CAL software calibrates dimensional and mechanical instruments, machine tools and torque gages. It is compatible with fluke calibration MET/TRACK software, so all calibration assets can be kept in the same database. Version 2.1 supports French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish languages; has a hibernation of calibration feature, enables calibration tests, reports and certificates; captures measurement uncertainty and test uncertainty ratio (TUR) values; performs batch calibrations and saves calibration results in a database. METCAL (714) 799-9910 WWW.METCAL.COM POCKET MICROSCOPE Aven pocket microscopes are designed for quality inspection of parts in tight spaces.
