London, United Kingdom, 2012/01/24 - CoreView 6.0, Hexagon Metrology's latest software for Cognitens white light systems, features offline programming, native 64-bit support, new measurement capabilities, fast reporting tools along with computation accelerations and higher system throughput . Nordic Exchange: HEXA B
Hexagon Metrology announced today the immediate availability of CoreView 6.0 for the Cognitens WLS400 automated and manual white light measurement systems. The new version includes an offline programming module for the robotic measuring system Cognitens WLS400A.
All CoreView modules now use the full memory and CPU resources by running on native 64-bit architecture. This supports larger CAD files, dense point cloud visualization and accelerated result computation.
New flush and gap capabilities support measurement of matching parts in their actual assembled position. This adds to previously available methods and delivers relevant information about the behaviour of matching parts in their real position. CoreView 6.0 can also indicate the position of studs as they are widely used by the automotive industry, e.g. in the assembly of car bodies.
CoreView 6.0 also provides a “Metrology Advisor” function which supports the Cognitens WLS400 user with online guidance and helps to create a more efficient process for measuring points and features.
Using the High Definition (HD) mode, the automated system Cognitens WLS400A now recognizes character lines, also known as tornado lines or beauty lines, along the entire length of a car. This function can be added to existing measurement routines, e.g. in automated Cognitens WLS400A closure cells.
The new version’s improved Automated Measurement (AM) computation enables a higher system throughput by allowing for a new measurement cycle to begin in parallel to computing the measurement results of the previous run. This ensures that the Cognitens WLS400A cell can continue measuring with minimal interruptions.
In addition, CoreView 6.0 offers improved reporting functions. Newly designed callout annotations now include one-click positioning, alignment and distribution of callouts across the area of interest for meaningful presentation of measurement results.
