With enhancements to its inspection capabilities and the continued development of its reverse-engineering capabilities, the latest version of Powerinspect software from Delcam is hardware independent yet user friendly.

Powerinspect combines the ability to work with all types of inspection device with a comprehensive range of inspection routines. As a result, it can take simple measurements, inspect geometric features, analyse complex 3D surfaces and produce detailed reports.

Efficient inspection sequences can be created for use on dual-column CNC co-ordinate measuring machines, while dual-device inspection options are also available.

The company claims Powerinspect is the only inspection software that supports the simultaneous operation of different types of device, including laser scanning, from different manufacturers.

Key benefits

  • Expansion of the digitised curves capabilities is claimed to have created a powerful re-engineering and modelling tool.
  • The reports present detailed information in an easy-to-read format that can be understood by all engineers and not just inspection specialists.
  • Powerinspect’s strategy for creating probe paths along a section of the component provides quick and easy comparison of a cross section against the CAD mode and is important for the measurement of blades and aerofoils, as well as for automotive inspection. 
  • Once created, curves can be exported as polylines as well as to the previously available NURBS format.

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.
