Hexagon Measurement Systems
No matter what Hexagon measurement equipment or software you use, we want to hear your ideas and suggestions on how we can improve.
Thanks for your assistance in helping us shape the future.
I would like to have the control to have the same functions of the jog box on my computer screen so that if I get a crash and I'm nowhere near the CMM I can remote onto the computer move the probe away from the crash, edit my program and continue it. This would also be great for those of us that have large CMM's so that we don't need to go to the opposite end of the machine to grab the jog box just to move a probe a few thousandths away from the part.
This function would be great to have the ability to find the perfect angle for difficult and complex orientations. being able to control the A-Axis & B-Axis with the jog box would eliminate the need to always rely on the Auto Wrist function or to select from the grid until you finally choose the correct angle.
For metal parts while using metal Probe shanks.
Create an alarm that tells the programmer and/or operator that the probe has shanked out.
A simple conductivity sensor would make this work on existing CMMs and new CMMs.
A function to allow the program to turn off the machine servos would be very useful as operators often forget to do so when exiting an inspection program. This was an option in MeasureMax.
Develop a motorized probe magazine much like every machining center has.
That way it could be mounted in the dead space at the end of the Y axis of most machines.
When a probe change is needed PC-DMIS would move the machine to a predetermined point for that port, the port would extend to the Z rail and unload or load a new probe. This would allow better use of the measuring envelop and enable use of that dead space at the end of the machine.
