PC-DMIS CMM – Transforming CMM Metrology

**PC-DMIS CMM – Transforming CMM Metrology** **PC-DMIS CMM is the world’s leading Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM) Software.** With over 30,000 seats in place, PC-DMIS is recognized as the world’s most capable CMM metrology software. An investment of hundreds of man-years and millions of dollars results in a metrology software system that is at once powerful and yet easy to use. With it, our customers measure everything from simple prismatic parts through the most complex aerospace and automotive components. PC-DMIS CMM leads the way in revolutionizing CMM measurement. Its list of innovations is long and continues to grow. PC-DMIS was the first CMM software to:Use CAD models in the inspection process. Directly link CAD systems and measurement software though its Direct CAD interface (DCI) technology. Implement a full set of sheet metal measurement routines tailored for the automotive industry. Digitally simulate measurement in an offline virtual CMM environment. Easily align complex, contoured parts using our breakthrough iterative alignment technology. And many, many more. PC-DMIS is standard equipment on all Hexagon Metrology CMMs. Wilcox Associates is Hexagon Metrology’s flagship software company. As such, it is responsible for providing software for each of our sister companies. These include Brown and Sharpe, C.E. Johansson, DEA, Hexagon Metrology Asia Pacific, Leitz, Poli, Romer, Romer Cimcore, Sheffield and Tesa.PC-DMIS is available as a retrofit package for most other manufacturers CMMs**.** Users of non-Hexagon Metrology CMMs can also take advantage of PC-DMIS technology. Hexagon Metrology Services, Hexagon Metrology’s aftermarket group, has a number of options for upgrading existing equipment ranging from a simple software retrofit through a complete machine rebuild. **PC-DMIS CMM comes in three basic configurations.** Wilcox Associates recognizes that our customers have varying requirements and should not have to pay for features they don’t need. PC-DMIS CMM comes in various standard configurations. Each is carefully tailored to meet the needs of a specific group of customers. Also, PC-DMIS offers a wide range of optional modules for doing specific tasks. This means that users can fine-tune the software to meet specific needs.**http://www.pcdmis-ems.com/ems/PC-DMISPRO.htm** – The baseline PC-DMIS CMM package offers customers who don’t need to integrate CAD into their inspection process a powerful, easy to use metrology software package. PC-DMIS Pro, with its built-in **Quick Start** routines, lets users get up and running on their CMMs with a minimum of fuss. ****http://www.pcdmis-ems.com/ems/PC-DMISCAD.htm**** – Brings CAD to the inspection process. PC-DMIS CAD lets customers create inspection programs and evaluate measurement results taking full advantage of their CAD models. The software provides the tools need to work with CAD files ranging from simple 2D drawings through complex 3D solid models. **http://www.pcdmis-ems.com/ems/PC-DMISCADPLUS.htm** - Enhances the capabilities of PC-DMIS CAD with sophisticated tools for high speed scanning, sheet metal measurement, part alignment and the like. PC-DMIS CAD++ makes measuring complex shapes easy.**PC-DMIS is also available in an off-line version.** In high volume shops where CMM time is a precious commodity, customers want to maximize the time their machines spend measuring parts. To meet this need Wilcox Associates developed off-line versions of PC-DMIS for virtual programming. Now, CMM programmers do most of their part programming off-line and CMMs spend most of their time measuring parts.
