From measuring the internal contour of a cylinder head port to teaching a robot that drives a manufacturing process, Revware solutions are the top choice for concept-to-product manufacturing engineers.
Automation and Robot Teaching
MicroScribe portable CMMs are used on the manufacturing floor in many ways, from creating work paths for and assessing positional accuracy of robotic systems, to positioning and validating manufacturing jigs, as well as setting the position and orientation of other components in the manufacturing process.
With today’s emphasis on quality control in manufacturing, it is important for companies to confirm the results of manufacturing processes, ensuring that each item produced meets stringent design specifications and fulfills customer quality requirements. MicroScribe portable CMMs are supported by many commercial inspection applications including: Verisurf, Autodesk PowerInspect, Nikon Metrology CMM Manager, and External-Array Software Rational DMIS. For a current list of available add-ins, see our list of products which support MicroScribe portable CMMs.
One of the biggest changes in modern manufacturing is the move to ‘additive’ manufacturing, one aspect of which is 3D printing. It will be important for engineers to become familiar with the processes of data gathering, modelling, inspection and overall iterative design associated with this class of manufacturing. Currently available Revware products can perform the process from existing object to digitized design to STL file output, the standard for 3D printer input.
Some of the most recognizable names in the world use Revware products:
