PAS CMM is an automated software tool for coordinate measuring machines that is said to be able to cut programming times by up to 90%. The software is compatible with all major CAD formats, whilst incorporating simple to use advanced multi-axis CMM programming features. In addition to the existing SolidWorks option this latest release of PAS CMM now includes native CAD data options for CATIA, ProENGINEER & Siemens NX.

CMM Master from Verisurf Software is a complete automated shop floor inspection system that combines the capabilities of Verisurf software with the Equator comparative gauge. It says the result is a fast, easy, accurate, affordable and portable programmable CMM system.

Top-Hat elements are often used as diffractive optical elements (DOEs) in order to produce a homogenous line using a dot laser.  This method however leads to a decrease in the intensity distribution at the edge, across the width of the line

Non-contact inspection by laser scanning or other optical systems ensures that delicate components are not damaged while they are being measured; and soft or compressible materials are not deformed. The disadvantage is that non-tactile measuring cannot match the precision of touch probes and photoelectric scanning of linear encoder graduations.

A new green light laser scanner for portable and fixed CMMs will give enhanced performance on highly reflective materials. The ScanR from represents the sixth generation of CMM-laser scanners from Perceptron, and is said to dramatically extend the range of engineering materials that can be laser-scanned, offering a significant customer advantage over red and blue laser scanners when scanning highly reflective and carbon fibre parts.

At last month's Control exhibition Kreon launched announced that its range of 3D laser scanners can now be integrated with the Metrolog X4 i-Robot software for automated inline inspection. Kreon's 3D laser scanners can be easily interchanged and mounted on portable arms, machine tools, manual and DCC CMM's. Now the scanners are fully integrated with the Metrolog X4 i-Robot they can be used with any kind of robot.

AMETEK Taylor Hobson has added two new products to its range of surface measurement testers. The Surtronic Duo is a portable surface roughness tester for shop floor and on-site measurement of multiple roughness parameters, and the Intra Touch is a contour and finish measurement system for precision machining and many other applications.

Nikon Metrology, which 20 years ago introduced non-contact laser scanning on a coordinate measuring machine (CMM), has introduced the new Nikon InSight L100 scanner featuring superior optics and innovative camera technology. Suitable for measurement of both surfaces and features, even on shiny or multi-material parts, the equipment is said to quickly deliver accurate data and intuitive part-to-CAD comparison reports.

Zeiss showed new models of its O-INSPECT multi-sensor measuring machines at Control, with a greater selection of machines, configurations and options that allow customers to have a more flexible choice for a wide range of application. Customers will now be able to choose from several sizes, load capacities and contact probes, says product manager Christoph Stark.
