CAD/CAM software / automation
The AutomationManager is a software platform that enables the automated and user-independent surface measurement and evaluation of micro-precision components or micro-structured surface details on large components.
The process is based on the interaction between an administrator, who defines the measurement program, and operators in the production area. The operator starts pre-programmed measurements at the touch of a button, the selection of the components to be measured is done using a drop-down menu or barcode scanner. The measurement and evaluation of surface roughness and/or form parameters proceeds automatically, the worker has no influence on the measurement result. At the end an O.K./not O.K. report is provided. Modular expansion options in the areas of defect detection and surface treatment by grinding, shot peening and laser complete the evaluation methods.
