Hexagon Measurement Systems
No matter what Hexagon measurement equipment or software you use, we want to hear your ideas and suggestions on how we can improve.
Thanks for your assistance in helping us shape the future.
I would like to have the control to have the same functions of the jog box on my computer screen so that if I get a crash and I'm nowhere near the CMM I can remote onto the computer move the probe away from the crash, edit my program and continue it. This would also be great for those of us that have large CMM's so that we don't need to go to the opposite end of the machine to grab the jog box just to move a probe a few thousandths away from the part.
For metal parts while using metal Probe shanks.
Create an alarm that tells the programmer and/or operator that the probe has shanked out.
A simple conductivity sensor would make this work on existing CMMs and new CMMs.
This function would be great to have the ability to find the perfect angle for difficult and complex orientations. being able to control the A-Axis & B-Axis with the jog box would eliminate the need to always rely on the Auto Wrist function or to select from the grid until you finally choose the correct angle.
When executing a program, not much information is available to you, and knowing how far a probe is about to travel is a great indicator of whether or not you're in the right ballpark.
Simply a value showing how far the probe is going to move before it reaches the point in which it will switch to touch speed or begin moving in another direction.
We see more and more machinist being trained to run PC-DMIS, and this is a comfortable feature they're used to seeing when running their CNC machines. I think it could help prevent many CMM crashes.
Create the ability to map a game console controller to control the machine motion.
X button = Accept
O button = Slow mode
Triangle = Cancel/back
Square = Skip
Arrows activate and deactivate axis's
It would be usefull for adjusting new programs if there would be a feature where I as a programer could click on icon and after that all angles in program wount execute until I press on joystick of 3D CMM ok. Different explanation. If I have for example 10 angles in program. I would click on icon in toolbar or press some keyboard shortcut and every angle would need step by step confirmation with joystick or also with some shortcut.
