  • PC-DMIS Vision at IMTS

    Hexagon Metrology unveiled two new developments at IMTS yesterday.

    1) CMM-V - A video probe for use on a CMM. This video probe, with two ring LED illumination built in, adds a new dimension to your CMM. It will allow measurement of previously unsupported features (too small, surface too soft), and, being compatible with tool changers, allows part programs to be written containing both touch probe and video probe features.

    2) OGP Retrofits. The current version of the QVI/OGP controller is now supported for PC-DMIS retrofitting, including Touch Probe machines. Support for the previous generation controller was launch at Westec earlier in the year.

    IMTS is running for the next two weeks if you wish to come along and take a look.

      Separate software option I assume? What is the compatability level with machine controls? For example about how many existing machine controls support this? If it is not supported is there a mod available or will it require a new control?

      Cool, I've already been looking into this as the software on my Flash sucks at least after spending years with PCDMIS it does.

        If I remember correctly it was a verbal ballpark quote of about 30k

        And I'm sure that didn't include the portlock enhancement

          It's currently compatible with B&S controllers running LEITZ firmware, and a "multi-wired" CMM. If your CMM can already handle a Metris of Perceptron laser probe, then you'll be all set. I'm not sure the pricing is finalized, but I'd be very surprised if the quoted $30K didn't also include the portlock option. Best get in touch with your local sales centre.
