Powerinspect brochure - .PDF file.

Delcam will demonstrate the 2014 release of its Powerinspect inspection software at the IMTS exhibition on booth E3222. 

Powerinspect features an interface with icons that are claimed to make the software more intuitive and easier to use. Other enhancements in this version include the ability to create compound items and so speed up and simplify repetitive measurements.

The IMTS conference will be held in Chicago from 8–13 September.

Key features and enhancements

  • The interface has been developed to further improve ease of use.
  • The software can be used to take all types of simple measurements and to inspect a variety of geometric features, as well as offering more tools for analysing complex 3D surfaces.
  • It offers the ability for users to create custom toolbars, which allow frequently used commands to be grouped together in one convenient place. This will improve speed and ease of use. 
  • During inspection, 2D features are always projected to a reference plane. This leads to a shorter sequence tree that is easier to navigate.
  • Enhancements to the measurement dialogues allow a wider range of information to be shown in addition to the measured values.
  • The user can choose to display nominal, deviation and error values, helping to highlight immediately whether each measured feature is in tolerance. This provides the operator with more complete information.
  • A constructed geometric feature allows the user to create the circle at the intersection of two tori. This can then be used to locate the transition point in ‘S’ bends in tubing and ductwork applications. 
  • Improved calibration records can be recorded in the probe database. This allows better traceability of the data and provides more assistance for the user to manage their calibrations.
  • Powerinspect 2014 includes improved support for the Renishaw PH20 probe. This probe is becoming more popular as the five-access motion of the PH20 allows measurement points to be taken by moving only the head rather than the complete CMM structure, giving easy access to features at any angle and minimising stylus change.

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.
