The affordable, portable CMM can now inspect Large Parts with the Same Accuracy as Large Stationary CMMs
Anaheim, CA. — September 10, 2010 — IMTS Show. Booths E-3827 and E-3840
Verisurf today unveiled the GagePlate system – a major innovation that dramatically expands the capabilities of the Master3DGage™ portable rapid 3D inspection solution. Quality engineers can now use the affordable Master3DGage to inspect large parts without sacrificing accuracy.
Master3DGage integrates a six-axis portable CMM with Verisurf’s advanced 3D Model-Based GD&T inspection software. This complete solution delivers a precise, fully automated digital process to inspect directly to CAD models anywhere on the shop floor and is as accurate as any portable CMM arm.
“Adding the new GagePlate System to the Master3DGage enables Quality engineers to inspect much larger parts for a fraction of the cost of larger portable or stationary CMMs,” said Ernie Husted, president of Verisurf. “Master3DGage’s light weight, stable base, battery power and WiFi connectivity make it easy to move around and ideal for inspecting large parts placed on the GagePlate.”
The GagePlate system automates realignment of the Master3DGage around large parts under inspection, while referencing one coordinate system. The precision calibrated plate rapidly scales and aligns the Master3DGage, enabling the inspection of large parts without the accumulative errors associated with leapfrogging or costs associated with large-scale CMMs.
Master3DGage software can also precisely compensate for temperature-related measurement variation. It automatically scales and compensates the known CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) of the part under inspection with the CTE of the calibrated GagePlate.
Master3DGage™ is an affordable and portable CMM solution. Powered by Verisurf inspection software, a six-axis Portable CMM gives machine shops a rapid, fully automated 3D inspection process that improves product quality, manufacturing productivity and shop profitability. Verisurf Software is the leading supplier of 3D Model-Based GD&T inspection software to manufacturers worldwide. Master3DGage is sold and supported exclusively through select Mastercam Resellers worldwide. For more information, visit www.Master3DGage.com.
