PC-DMIS 2016 is the latest release of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s world-leading dimensional measurement software package for coordinate measuring machines (CMMs).
Experience better every day with PC-DMIS 2016 offering workflow improvements for faster measurement routine generation and enhanced measurement strategy algorithms to maximise confidence in the results.
Each enhancement offers maximum speed through your day-to-day tasks with compressed workflows while intelligent automation increases confidence in your final results. PC-DMIS 2016 assures increased productivity in your metrology operation while delivering maximum confidence for your data-driven manufacturing processes.
PC-DMIS is the world’s most widely-used measurement software, with over 60 000 seats in place worldwide. Its powerful capabilities enable users to measure everything from simple prismatic parts to the most complex aerospace and automotive components.
PC-DMIS leads the way in revolutionising measurement, pioneering technologies such as:
• Use of CAD models in the inspection process
• Directly linking CAD systems and measurement software through its Direct CAD Interface (DCI) technology
• Implementing a full set of sheet metal measurement routines tailored for the automotive industry
• Digitally simulating measurement in an offline virtual CMM environment
• Easily aligning complex contoured parts using breakthrough iterative alignment technology
PC-DMIS is standard equipment on all Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence measurement devices and is also available as a retrofit package for most other measurement equipment manufacturers, allowing users of non-Hexagon equipment to take advantage of PC-DMIS technology.
PC-DMIS comes in three basic configurations, Pro, CAD and CAD++, with optional modules available to fine-tune for specific needs. It is also available in an offline version for virtual programming.
Smart CAD, Smarter Graphics
CAD models with embedded geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) are here today and PC-DMIS helps you take full advantage of that built-in intelligence.
Point Clouds with New Tricks
Make more sense of your point clouds with new cross-section annotation tools and quicker access to multiple colour maps.
Ahead of the Curves
Save up to 80% of traditional programming time by creating your own CAD curves for rapid measurement. Using this new workflow to achieve maximum speed even when the curves do not already exist saves a return trip to the CAD designer.
Features Measured Your Way
Some days you just need a little more freedom and flexibility. The Feature-Based Measurement option and Mini Routine execution help you do things your way, every day.
Having multiple strategies at the ready will help you speed through measurement planning, while a new self-centring strategy for analogue sensors will get you straight to the point.
Improved Sensor Acceptance
We are constantly upgrading our tools for white light technology, so PC-DMIS 2016 helps fine-tune lighting parameters and gives you more measurement options to extract the most from your Chromatic White Light sensor.
Best Fit for a New Path
Simple arrows unequivocally show the way for better inspection plan efficiency, while new fitting algorithms ensure complete confidence in compliance and accuracy.
New Style User Interface
PC-DMIS 2016 features a new look and feel for a refreshing and simple user experience.
