Verisurf Universal CMM Offers Universal CMM Compatibility

Software enables seamless communication between Verisurf AUTOMATE and popular CMM and head controllers

Published: Monday, September 17, 2018 - 16:28

(Verisurf Software: Anaheim, CA) -- Verisurf Software, Inc. announced today its commitment to provide Universal compatibility between legacy CMMs and its popular measurement software for automated quality inspection, reporting, scanning, reverse engineering, tool building and assembly guidance. Universal CMM software allows shops to use Verisurf across the enterprise, which reduces training and maintenance cost while increasing overall productivity.

Universal CMM is a software-only solution that enables seamless communication between Verisurf AUTOMATE and popular CMM and head controllers, eliminating the need to maintain different metrology software for each proprietary CMM. With Universal CMM all CMMs, fixed, portable or programmable can be operated using Verisurf Software.

Because it is a software-only solution, Universal CMM eliminates the need for costly and disruptive controller and probing system hardware upgrades or retrofits. Installing and configuring Universal CMM software is all that is required to start using Verisurf; this allows customers to continue using their legacy software and inspection programs if necessary to avoid productivity interruptions during training and migration to Verisurf.

Universal CMM utilizes existing CMM error map files on the legacy CMM’s controller or client PC and automatically applies this information for error correction during operation.

Once Universal CMM is set up, Verisurf AUTOMATE can be used with all CMMs across the enterprise to interactively build, edit, preview, share and submit inspection plans to every CMM. Verisurf AUTOMATE users are immediately productive with a rich 3D environment that includes an object-oriented operations manager, point-and-click CAD feature extraction, and solid model associativity.
