At the GTMA Make Measurement Matter event, 19 October at Donington Park, Delcam will introduce the new version of Powerinspect that features improved results visualisation, easier creation of automated inspection routines and support for the latest Renishaw probes.

Powerinspect works with all types of inspection device, using a comprehensive range of inspection routines to make simple measurements, inspect geometric features and check complex surfaces.

According to Delcam, the resulting reports present detailed information in easy-to-read formats that can be understood by any engineer.

Through supporting 64-bit computers, Powerinspect can use more memory on that hardware — making it easier to manipulate larger CAD files, such as those for very complex parts or multi-component assemblies.

Key features

  • Runs on 64-bit systems
  • Presents results in an easy-to-understand format
  • Runs digital read out (DRO), enabling users to view the XYZ co-ordinates of the measuring device
  • Automatically generates probe paths from curves in CAD models
  • Dimensions can now be displayed on the CAD view, for clearer reporting
  • Point cloud data can now be shaded, giving an immediate impression of the scan shape

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times. The company is the world's largest specialist supplier of computer-aided machining software, with its PowerMILL, FeatureCAM, Partmaker and ArtCAM programs making up the most comprehensive range of CAM systems from any developer.

This broad selection allows Delcam to offer a CAM system capable of machining virtually any product, in any material on any type of equipment. Delcam also develops product design, tooling design and quality control programs. The unique Tribrid Modelling approach to design incorporates solid modelling, surface modelling and triangle modelling in a single program, enabling complete design and reverse engineering projects to be undertaken without transferring data between software.

Delcam's Powerinspect offers fast, reliable comparison of parts, prototypes and tooling against CAD data on all types of inspection equipment and even on machine tools. This versatility has made it the world's leading hardware-independent inspection software. Related programs are available for checking machine tool set-up and part location. Delcam software is used in over 80 countries worldwide by around 40,000 organisations, from large multi-nationals to small sub-contractors, in industries including aerospace, automotive, dental, engineering, footwear, medical and toolmaking.
