Hexagon Metrology presents the latest release of QUINDOS
QUINDOS 7.10 continues to set the standard for high-precision software in the powertrain field05 May 2015
Hexagon Metrology has announced a new release of QUINDOS, the powerful dimensional inspection software for coordinate measuring machines and gear inspection centres. The latest release, QUINDOS 7.10, focuses on usability while also adding support for the latest Hexagon Metrology non-contact sensors, including the HP-L laser scanning sensor, the PRECITEC LR optical sensor and the HP-O interferometric solution.
In future, this optical technology will be complemented by tactile roughness measurement options, and the new QUINDOS roughness module is already prepared for such inspections. Boasting standard-compliant evaluation in accordance with ISO 4287 and ISO 1356, it gives the ability to determine and automatically log the mass, shape and position of a component in a single process.
Also integrated into QUINDOS 7.10 are the current ISO 14405-1 linear length dimension size elements as per the latest geometric production specification (GPS), and completely new evaluation algorithms. Users benefit from intuitive controls for entering the dimensions and modifiers, and direct control of the implemented drawing specification via an instruction dialogue.
To aid measuring program creation, the basic QUINDOS package now includes probe visualisation functions for designing moving paths and enables the integration of security bodies (box and cylinder) for automatic path generation which simplifies programming.
Statistical handling has also received a user-friendly overhaul in QUINDOS 7.10, with complete redesigns of the statistics feature overview module and STCGRA option. Adding several new features to prior functionality, these modifications allow more intuitive operations without jeopardising compatibility with existing programs.
“For over 30 years, QUINDOS has been continually developed to support the latest cutting-edge technologies, and the new version continues this tradition. These updates will bring a positive impact for operators at all levels,” said Dr. Günter Moritz, QUINDOS creator and chief developer at Hexagon Metrology.
As well as the integration of new technologies, QUINDOS' core competency in special geometries has been expanded to include several substantial gearing packages. These options support standardised measurement and standard-compliant evaluation of Hirth gearings, metric ISO threads and gear racks, with step-by-step guides helping users from parameter entry to selecting evaluation strategies and automated report creation.
QUINDOS 7.10 will be available from 21 May 2015 and is distributed in both 32-bit and 64-bit form.
