Interface

CAMIO has in-depth programming, analysis and reporting capabilities for a wide range of CMM applications - all features are tightly integrated into a single platform using proven technology and the latest developments in CMM software.

CAMIO encourages users to drive the inspection process graphically, everything from part alignment, feature inspection and dimensional tolerancing is much faster and more intuitive when users work with CAMIO’s advanced user interface.

Novice users find the step-through approach to CMM inspection particularly easy to master and quickly migrate to the more progressive features of the software. More experienced users appreciate the advanced functionality and high-level DMIS language with conditional program execution and user macros.

Programming

CAMIO provides a powerful suite of graphical programming tools for 3D measurement - including online and offline programming, CAD and non- CAD applications and multi- sensor technology.

CAMIO’s advanced feature-based and point cloud-based programming routines simply complex inspection tasks by linking functions and applying specialized measurement sequences – from manual non-CAD programming to advanced 3D multi- path scanning methods using CAD.

Intelligent workflows optimize the programming session, with critical information and related functionally readily available at every step, and group feature dependencies and associated tolerancing to further streamline the process.

Output

CAMIO enables manufacturers to analyze measurement data and share meaningful reports across multiple platforms - while keeping quality records safe for future reference. CAMIO provides a flexible inspection reporting solution to fit around your current process, while providing new possibilities.

Instant reports give real-time access to quality data, enabling you to take informed decisions sooner.

Standard templates provide countless reporting possibilities for a range of applications, and the capability to customize reports and create individual layouts.

When more creativity is needed a powerful report editor puts content rich output and drag & drop capability at your fingertips.

Should you need to further analyze your measurement results the inspection database stores your data safely in a convenient central location.

Program Editor

CAMIO gives you the freedom to generate programs using the programming technique you prefer, online and offline using CAD or teach and learn using the CMM handbox.

CAMIO provides the flexibility of different programming styles and two program editors - an easy to use block view of inspection objects with familiar drag & drop capability, and a more powerful DMIS editor for in-depth programming - both support native DMIS programs and are 100% compatible.

To safeguard your investment in inspection programs, CAMIO’s program interoperability ensures forward compatibility of your CMM programs.

Allowing you to migrate from older versions of software including 3rd party software and upgrade your hardware without having to rewrite your DMIS programs.

Simulation

Allows programmers to fully prepare programs and optimize measurement sequences offline – ensuring programs are ready before parts arrive for inspection, and dramatically reducing CMM downtime when proving out programs. CAMIO’s virtual CMM provides a realistic offline CMM programming environment, with accurate CMM and probe motion sequences for collision detection and cycle time estimations. Several levels of simulation are available including CMMs library’s, multi-sensor probing, multiple work-piece models, holding fixtures, change racks and rotary tables.

Stand-alone CMM Automation

AUTOMATION

CAMIO automation software provides a modular solution for CMM automation with options to choose the level of CMM automation capability based on the application and setting.

IN-LINE CMM AUTOMATION

In-line CMM automation allows manufacturing cells to increase product quality and production efficiency. The CMM is fully integrated in the cell with all sequencing managed by the cell control system and CAMIO automation software.

  • Rapid detection of process variation enables corrective actions in real-time while maintaining the flow of production.
  • Automatic monitoring of the manufact cell for a quick response should the unexpected occur.
  • Personnel and equipment safeguarded by presence detection devices and other safety equipment.

THE SMART FACTORY

Industry 4.0 defines what has been called the smart factory

Within a smart factory manufacturing systems communicate and cooperate with one another and humans. In-line measurement provides immediate feedback, enabling optimization of the process in real-time. Manufactures benefit from, superior cost efficiencies, better quality products and higher productivity.
