Camio8 brochure - .PDF file.

Nikon Metrology has launched its Camio8 co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) software, which is designed to allow the best-practice selection of sensor technology for each task. Camio8 has been designed for large point clouds, making it suitable for the inspection of sheet-metal panels or assembled car bodies.

By combining touch-trigger, analogue-scanning and 3D laser-scanning sensors within the same inspection program, the right inspection results are obtained in the fastest way, while providing manufacturers with greater measurement flexibility and increased CMM throughput.

Camio8 offers tools for both tactile and laser-scanning applications. The program editor provides an iconised view of the inspection program, where clicking on the CAD model initiates a measurement sequence.

When deploying laser scanning on a tactile-based CMM, tactile probe commands of existing DMIS programs are claimed to be easily converted into laser-scanning commands. Reusing existing part programs not only reduces the cost of implementing laser scanning, but also enables users to start inspections plans directly using laser scanning.

Key features and benefits

  • Camio8 automatically applies the optimum measurement strategy based on the feature and sensor selected.
  • For measuring complex surfaces, Camio8 will automatically generate scan paths that result in fast and smooth laser-scanning moves that closely follow the part surface.
  • Standard report templates facilitate instant reporting,
  • Configuration tools provide the flexibility to create bespoke designs
  • Tabulated tables, graphical reports and form plots can be combined in one report and shared using Microsoft and Adobe file formats.
  • Both tactile and laser scanning results can be integrated into a single report.
  • Camio8 provides full machine simulation and collision detection. Any potential collisions are highlighted and can be corrected before the first part is measured, avoiding costly CMM downtime when trying out new inspection programs.

Nikon Metrology yields the most complete and innovative metrology offering. Our reliable and innovative metrology solutions respond to the advanced and time-restricted inspection requirements of manufacturers active in consumer, automotive, aerospace, electronics, medical and other industries.

The following products lines are now available in the portfolio:

Co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs)

Designed and manufactured with a heritage of more than 45 years’ experience and expertise, LK CMM’s deliver the ability to perform dimensional, positional and surface measurement in one system. Combined with a range of contact and non-contact sensors, Nikon Metrology CMMs have multi-sensor capability.

Portable arms and optical CMM

Combining Nikon’s ModelMaker scanner with a seven-axis MCAx articulated measuring arm results in a powerful measuring system that’s easy to use.

To inspect larger parts, K-Scan MMDx with optical CMM allows the operator to freely walk around and scan as desired.

Laser scanning

Laser scanners capture the entire part geometry for inspection or reverse-engineering purposes, covering both freeform surfaces and geometric features. Laser scanners are used with CMMs, articulated arms, optical CMMs or even robots.

X-ray and computed tomography (CT)

Nikon Metrology’s X-ray and CT inspection systems provide detailed insight into the internal structure of parts. Typically used for inspection of loaded PCBs, compact castings and plastics, these imaging systems facilitate detection of connectivity failures, material defects and assembly issues.

Our UK X-Ray Centre of Excellence offers a contract inspection service. This comprehensive bureau service is bookable by the hour, day or scan for radiographic and CT imaging

Vision systems

Nikon’s CNC video measuring systems cover precision optical and digital imaging systems for inspection and non-contact surface inspection.

Microscopes/optical inspection systems

Measuring microscopes focus on industrial measuring and image analysis, designed for complete digital control for maximum measuring accuracy. Nikon’s industrial microscopes serve a wide range of visual inspection applications. Our microscope portfolio includes the portable ShuttlePix, which allows users to pick it up and take images and measurements anywhere needed.

Large-scale measuring/positioning

The Laser Radar is a large-scale system that performs fully automated, non-contact measurement and inspection up to 60m.

The iGPS is a modular, large-volume tracking system used in manufacturing and assembly, enabling factory-wide localisation of multiple objects with metrology accuracy.

Nikon Metrology also provides a full range of software solutions for CMM and point-cloud-based inspection and reverse-engineering applications.

The product portfolio is completed with comprehensive support, metrology and integration services.
