Nikon Metrology announced a new software breakthrough with Metrologic Group, providing a set of new functionalities and applications for Laser Radar and other NMI products. Metrologic has combined large-scale capabilities into its Metrolog software, now offering large-scale point clouds with fully automated functionalities.
These include edge detection, curve and surface-based feature extraction, best-in-class GD&T, high-performance point-cloud analysis, and a single interface throughout the range of Nikon Metrology's product line.
"Analyzing and using point cloud data generated by any of Nikon Metrology's laser scanning products including our Laser Radar, is now easier than ever," said Robert Wasilesky, senior vice president at Nikon Metrology. "Simply scan a part directly into Metrolog X4 to process measurement results quickly and accurately. Simply compare the point cloud directly to a CAD Model for simple go/no-go conditions or overall deviations to the model. You can also analyze prismatic and free-form features relative to GD&T. The combination of the Nikon G3 Laser Radar and Metrolog X4 software is a true innovation in manufacturing and measurement, delivering automation, ease of use and enabling customers to guarantee product performance and quality while sustaining maximum production efficiencies".
