Metrolosys 9 inspection software makes CMMs out of machine tools.


Metrolosys 9 inspection software for probing transforms any machine tool into a CMM. With it, shops administer quality processes during machining to catch errors in design, CNC programming, or setup on-the-fly. Reportedly, the software reduces machine downtime by as much as 75%.

Users create full GD&T inspection procedures and generate critical inspection reports from the CNC machine's touch probe. The system works on any milling machine that is probe-ready and requires no special wiring or computer parts. It runs in Microsoft Windows 9x, Windows 2000, and Windows/NT. Users perform calibration independently with Optodyne Inc.'s error-mapping laser system.
