This touch technology introduces smart phone productivity into the operation of coordinate measuring machines, portable arms and laser trackers.
By linking CAM software into an advanced tool presetting system, this airline manufacturing unit efficiently manages a large tooling database and machining simulation on highly complex aircraft parts to quickly respond to market changes.
By retrofitting a manual CMM to run Verisurf software, a shop adds additional functionality and productivity features that are quickly becoming requirements of manufacturing and quality engineers.
Every shop should develop a high-level understanding of their existing quality resources so they can begin creating flow charts for each quality process that, in turn, will help them understand not only a breakdown of what takes place within a specific process, but also the resources allocated to each step along with any potential gaps that may exist.
