CMM-Manager 3.0 features new Windows 7 style user interface
January 26, 2011
CMM-Manager 3.0 for Windows 7 is by far the most value-for-money tactile inspection software that runs on nearly all CNC and manual CMMs. The modern and intuitive Windows 7 graphical interface makes the software even more informative and interactive. Get more work done with CMM-Manager, by automating serial inspection or by easily taking a few points on the spot. And when combined with the new Renishaw 5-axis PH20 probe head, CMM-Manager 3.0 turns around inspection jobs up to 3 times faster.
Versatility to get the most out of your CMMs|
The dashboard has been upgraded with intuitive new icons and a ribbon bar style layout. CMM-Manager 3.0 for Windows 7 also incorporates touch screen and multi-touch support and intuitive navigation paths. Simply walk up to the CMM, quickly align the part, and immediately measure geometric features and points on planes. When CAD is available, you can even take snap point measurements on the screen to eliminate manually probing the work piece – and automatically create dimensional charts with color-coded point deviations.
Docking and sliding panels provide a more open and simplified workspace, and inspection tools are simple to use. To create a serial inspection routine that runs on any CMM brand, you simply click points and features on a 3D part view and drag-and-drop them as icons on to a part program representation. CMM-Manager automatically converts the icon program into a collision-free touch probe motion path. Automated inspection results in graphic part-to-CAD comparison, a digital communication tool providing all the answers.
PH20 support triples CMM productivity
CMM-Manager 3.0 for Windows 7 supports the new Renishaw PH20 probe head that drives fast, infinite, rotary positioning for high-speed point measurement with minimal CMM movement. The new probe head brings five-axis inspection capability to smaller CMMs by optimizing the working volume of the measurement platform. Through PH20 support, CMM-Manager 3.0 for Windows increases touch-trigger CMM inspection throughput up to three times. CMM-Manager software operates on a PC or laptop running a Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit operating system.
