PowerINSPECT brochure - .PDF file.

Delcam will hold two webinars on 16 June demonstrating the latest developments in laser scanning with the company’s PowerINSPECT inspection software. The webinars will show how rapidly laser scanning allows millions of points to be gathered, typically providing 75 times as much data as conventional scanning in less than half the time.

The webinars will show how to carry out laser scanning with PowerINSPECT on a range of hardware devices, including FARO and ROMER portable co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs), and how to extract geometric features from the resulting point-cloud data.

They will also highlight how PowerINSPECT’s versatility allows data collected with the software’s tactile-probing functionality to be combined with the results from laser scanning. Advice will be given on how to choose and use the best approach, either laser scanning or probing, to measure different types of geometry.

Software in detail

  • The 2015 release of PowerINSPECT offers improved display of results from point-cloud data, including a better-shaded display of the ‘colour map’, complete with the coloured scale of the tolerances.
  • As well as making the results simpler to understand, the new format is more consistent with the reports produced by PowerINSPECT from data from other types of measurements. This makes it easier to compare the results from different devices or measurement methods.
  • The use of laser scanning has been made faster with a number of improvements to PowerINSPECT to enhance both data import and report generation. The differences will be particularly apparent when reading large CAD models, such as a complete car body, and when producing longer reports with more graphical images.
  • Another improvement in reporting gives users greater control over the contents of any report, especially when handing the large amounts of data generated by laser scanning. For example, it is easier to produce a summary of the complete set of results as a management report. Similarly, a more concise report can be produced when greater detail is not needed, for example when all the results are well within the expected tolerances.

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.
