Unlimited options on sensor selection


Metris Camio 6.0 multi-sensor metrology software covers laser scanning on CMMs as well as tactile 3-axis and 5-axis REVO scanning. With new enhancements in 3D laser scanning support, Camio 6.0i is a multi-sensor software platform for off-line programming and  on-line inspection.

Camio 6.0 enables part program creation to be performed independently from the selected sensor type. This offers unlimited flexibility when selecting the most appropriate sensors for inspecting virtually any type of component.
Camio 6.0 supports the new Metris LC60D laser scanner. This fully digital laser scanner triples traditional scan rates and eliminates user interaction when scanning components with varying colour or high reflectivity.  Software algorithms enable Camio to inspect a broader range of generic and complex feature types, such as specialist fir tree connectors used on automotive sheet metal.

For prismatic tactile measurement applications, such as engine or powertrain components inspection, Camio 6.0 supports the Renishaw REVO continuous 5-axis tactile probing system. In general, 5-axis scanning overcomes the limitations of other tactile inspection methods by providing higher speed, improved accuracy, better resolution and increased accessibility. Not only is the cycle time improved, but the setup time has been reduced to a single calibrated position per probe build. Unique features of the Camio REVO integration include dynamic probe positioning (DPP), which automatically corrects the probe head position to match the part alignment and ensures the stylus is perfectly aligned with the feature. Along with a complete set of graphical 5-axis programming tools that offer full simulation for on-line and off-line programming and full support for the emerging DMIS 5.1 5-axis scanning commands, these capabilities guarantee forward-compatibility of REVO inspection programs.

Camio 6.0 incorporates a number of improvements that enhance ease of use. The Datum Wizard has been greatly improved and now supports 8 feature types and over 20,000 datum combinations. “Touch & Go” is a new development that automatically initiates a new program, sets the datum or measures a feature whenever the operator uses the CMM handbox. Sensor management has been streamlined and now includes a new sensor explorer tree with a powerful context menu.
The Camio CADfast interface is a new intuitive stand-alone application that provides Camio Studio users with access to the latest revisions of CAD.
