Delcam will be demonstrating the 2014 release of its Powerinspect inspection software at the GTMA’s ‘Make Measurement Matter’ roadshow.

Powerinspect 2014 features a new interface with icons designed to make the software more intuitive and even easier to use.

Other enhancements include the ability to create compound items and so speed up and simplify repetitive measurements.

In addition, the range of geometric features that can be measured with Powerinspect continues to be increased, with a new option available to create a probed ellipse, while improved support for the Renishaw PH20 probe is offered.

The roadshow will be held at the DW Stadium in Wigan on 16 October.

Key features and enhancements

  • Powerinspect can take all types of simple measurements and inspect a growing variety of geometric features, as well as offering more tools for analysing complex 3D surfaces.
  • The interface features freshly designed icons, which are said to give a cleaner look and feel to the software.
  • Users will be able to create custom toolbars, which allow frequently used commands to be grouped together in one place.  
  • Powerinspect can create a compound item that combines the plane and the feature together into a single compound feature, and assumes that the 2D feature is to be reported, while the plane is not. This leads to a shorter sequence tree that is easier to navigate and a report that shows only the properties of the 2D features by default.
  • Enhancements to the measurement dialogues will allow a wider range of information to be shown in addition to the measured values.  
  • The range of geometric features that can be measured continues to be increased with a new option available to create a probed ellipse.
  • 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 calibrations.
  • Support is now provided for the Renishaw PH20 probe.

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.
