Part measurement on the fly
The measurement of parts is an integral aspect of C-Mill’s work. Measurements have to be reliably documented to fulfill the company’s certification to the ISO 12485 standard, which relates to the design and manufacture of medical devices. Until the Siemens solution was introduced, part measurement entailed online programming of the coordinate measuring machine (CMM) used by manually entering the production, shape and position tolerances. Until this was finished, the machine stood idle. “The solution was not very hard to find. The CMM inspection programming capabilities within NX software provide a state-of-the-art solution for offline measuring machine programming,” says Christoph Renker, Managing Director of solution partner Cytrus AG. “NX CMM Inspection Programming streamlines the entire CMM inspection program development and measurements analysis process”.
