Single Touch Interface
Single Touch Interface (STI+) - Bringing inspection to the shop floor
Single Touch Interfaces can be as simple as a single screen that lets an operator launch one of several part programs, or as complex as a system capable of automatically locating a part on the CMM then calling up the appropriate part program to measure it.Â
The STI+ option has two modules: one to develop the STI+ and the other to execute it. Applications engineers develop Single Touch Interfaces using a "Slide Show" Editor. This is an application, similar to Microsoft's PowerPoint®, that lets them combine setup instructions, measurement programs, reporting templates, and everything else they need to measure parts into a single, cohesive system.
