PC-DMIS Touch Portable on ROMER Arms Released

Published: Monday, November 11, 2013 - 11:58

(Hexagon Metrology: North Kingstown, RI) -- Hexagon Metrology has announced the commercial availability of ROMER measuring arm packages equipped with PC-DMIS Touch Portable, a revolutionary measurement software. Utilizing high-resolution Multi-Touch display technology on a tablet PC, users physically interact with the software’s guided measurement sequences and report templates. PC-DMIS Touch Portable will be featured at Fabtech Expo, Nov. 18-21, 2013, in Chicago.

PC-DMIS Touch offers an entirely new look, feel, and workflow to complete measurement tasks. One-time dimensions are executed through intuitive automated measurement sequences, while more complex measurement plans are created by simply following guided measurement sequences and measuring features directly on the part. A graphical representation of the measured features is always displayed in the center of the interface—right where it’s needed—during all measurement tasks.

PC-DMIS Touch organizes measurement plan features intuitively by “Face,” a new concept for the traditional work-plane. The user is guided through measurement processes using a full set of inspection tools, such as simple feature measurement, construction of features or feature sets, 2D and 3D dimensional reporting, GD&T configuration, and more. Each of these tasks follows a consistent, intuitive sequence that is quickly learned with minimal training. PC-DMIS Touch also allows for execution of existing PC-DMIS routines with a simple swipe of the finger.

The PC-DMIS Touch interface is particularly well suited to ROMER portable arm users. The ROMER arm’s zero-g counterbalance design, which allows single-handed operation, leaves the second hand free to interact with the touch screen. Nonrepetitive measuring activities that are typical of measuring arms are ideal for the PC-DMIS Touch interface.

“PC-DMIS Touch represents the future of inspection software, leveraging the latest advancements in operating system and hardware form factors,” says Ken Woodbine, president of the PC-DMIS software division of Hexagon Metrology. “The user experience includes full touch gesturing and utilization of color in distinctive ways to guide the user through a task. It becomes an immersive experience that allows any user to accomplish their job swiftly and easily. ROMER arm users will particularly appreciate this ease of use based on an arm’s typical applications and diverse measurement workflows.”

PC-DMIS Touch Portable equipped ROMER arm systems are available for purchase. Contact your local Hexagon Metrology office to arrange a demonstration.
