Renishaw Releases New Inspection Software Version
Improved software for machined parts.
Hoffman Estates, IL — Renishaw is introducing a new version of its OMV Pro software that includes more advanced co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) style capabilities with an extended range of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) functionality, plus the ability to work with multiple alignments in a single program, an advantage in working with multi-axis machine tools.

Now supporting Microsoft® Windows Vista®, the new Version 2.02 allows users of machine tool touch probes to quickly verify the accuracy of freeform and prismatic parts without removing the part from the machine. The software includes simulation capability, an intuitive graphical interface and crystal-clear reporting format that make it accessible to shop-floor staff. By enabling users to see exactly what was cut, OMV Pro allows corrections to be made before the part leaves the machine.

New features in OMV Pro 2.02 enhance the software's geometric measurement capabilities, which already include a "constructed features" function that allows users to construct entities from other previously measured features, making it faster to measure components with a large number of prismatic features or perform complex prismatic measurements. The new version of OMV Pro has been improved with GD&T functionality for perpendicularity, parallelism, angularity, linear dimension, surface profile, line profile and concentricity. OMV Pro's GD&T measurement wizard helps users create standardized report elements based on internationally recognized symbols, allowing operators to compare part measurement results on the machine with those on the manufacturing drawing.
