Hexagon CMM-Ve Vision Probe

The CMM-Ve is a CCD camera-based video probe for use on a CMM. The integral segmented LED illumination and the 2D light sensitive CCD allows an area of the measured component to be illuminated and viewed. Software control of the variable intensity illumination allows the user to optimize the image for each measurement.

SICK Sensor Solutions

SICK is one of the world’s leading producers of sensors and sensor solutions for industrial applications. SICK is a technology and market leader in factory and logistics automation as well as process automation.



TechnorazziLIVE: Zeiss Computed Tomography/CALYPSO

In the first half of this TechnorazziLIVE episode, viewer can see the benefits of using CALYPSO as a common metrology software for both ZEISS CMMs and non-ZEISS machines. With CALYPSO software you will be able to increase your productivity while optimizing your measuring capabilities.


In the second half we take a look at computed tomography (CT), a 3-D metrology system that uses X-ray technology to detect defects not seen using traditional inspection methods. Measure internal and external features nondestructively and easily capture data from cavities, undercuts or deeply recessed objects. A Zeiss Metrotom is the CT scanner used in this demonstration. 

PCDMIS Planner

PC-DMIS Planner is a stand-alone application that links design and inspection by creating an inspection plan from design data. It does not reside inside a CAD system but instead uses CAD data either directly via a Direct CAD Interface (DCI) or via one of several CAD translators. It uses this data to create the inspection plan. A group of Planner-compatible tools have been added to PC-DMIS that convert the inspection plan into a PC-DMIS part program.

Hexagon Optiv Multisensor Measuring System

OPTIV is a multi-sensor measuring system where the primary sensor is video. Optiv systems combine the power of vision, laser and touch probe inspection in one versatile system. With a complete selection of high-resolution cameras, TTL (through-the-lens) laser, white light scanning sensors, analog scanning sensors and touch-trigger probes, they’re ideal for every kind of dimensional measurement and reverse engineering application.


The new Optiv line of multi-sensor measuring systems from Brown & Sharpe enable manufacturers in a variety of industries to dimensionally inspect 3D and 2D features to the tightest production tolerances.

FARO Focus3D Laser Scanner Demo

The Focus3D is a high-speed 3D laser scanner for detailed measurement and documentation. The Focus3D uses laser technology to produce incredibly detailed three-dimensional images of complex environments and geometries in only a few minutes.


In this recording from TechnorazziLIVE the Focus3D is demonstrated measuring a Cessna Corvallis TT, inside the hanger facility of Air Orlando Maintenance, part of Air Orlando Sales, the number-one dealer of Cessna single-engine aircraft in Florida.


This demo shows the features and capabilities of the Focus3D in a real environment.


Intuitive Touchscreen Display
Control all scanner functions with a touch interface for unparalleled ease of use and control


Stand-alone Solution
Ultraportable design allows for operation without external devices
