Delcam’s Powerinspect inspection software will be demonstrated on a range of devices — including portable arms, a laser tracker and a machine tool — at the Control exhibition on 14–17 May in Stuttgart.

All the demonstrations will use the new 2013 release of the software, which includes dual-device functionality and a range of enhanced features.

Delcam’s stand will feature a large casting being inspected using Powerinspect’s dual-device functionality. Powerinspect supports the simultaneous operation of different types of device from different manufacturers. At Control, a Faro portable co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) and a Leica laser tracker will be used.

The ability to provide simultaneous measurement from two devices is an extension of the functionality for dual-column CMMs included in the 2012 R2 release of the software. According to Delcam, the main benefit is the same: the ability to reduce inspection times both by measuring a complete object in a single setup and by taking data simultaneously from two sources.
