The latest version of the PC-based Quadra-Chek metrology software from Heidenhain Corp. provides advanced functionality for inspection measurement machines, making it possible to perform 2- and 3-D measuring tasks when standard products will not suffice.

Labeled the IK5000 version 2.96, the software builds upon the original Metronics Quadra-Chek QC5000 model by introducing 3-D profiling capabilities that can provide measurement and graphic evaluation of 3-D contours using multisensor and tactile measuring machines. This new option, used for profile measurements, can import a 3-D CAD file (either STEP or IGES) and compare it with the actual measured part.

Part programming improvements also have been added to support compensation for the thermal behavior of products that experience shrinkage or growth of material during the manufacturing process. This will allow users to write a single inspection program for measuring parts with materials having a known growth or shrinkage rate.

The radial and palletize methods of automatic part programming routines also have been improved. They are designed to help users when there are common features or parts that repeat angularly, around a datum or based upon a palletized grid layout. On video-based inspection machines, the improvements will retain specific video tool sizes and the positions needed for these measurements, then repeat them based on the angle on which they are located around the datum or in reference to a linear layout.

The new palletize grid functionality allows the user to graphically select which parts in the grid are required for measurement, and to run the program only in those locations.

IK5000 version 2.96 is compatible with PCs running 32-bit Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.
