Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has announced the main release version QUINDOS 2020.1 of the most powerful metrology software for special geometries and the most flexible solution for measuring tasks ranging from standard inspection to complex powertrain applications. In this latest release, QUINDOS breaks new ground in program creation by integrating a number of innovative features.

The new option Inspection Planning with PMIs (Product Manufacturing Information) enables QUINDOS to automate part program creation by importing GD&T information and dimensions from native 3D CAD models. QUINDOS interprets the metrology-relevant information from the 3D data and automatically associates the resulting features with the measurement and evaluation methods. Pre-defined tool/sensor configurations are automatically assigned to the characteristics.

An intuitive editor allows the operator to adjust the measurement scope, sequence, and strategy as required. Missing dimensions can be added using an interactive tool which can also be applied to standardised CAD models. Information on the technical drawing can thus be integrated as PMIs in the IGES or STEP model and used as a basis for the automated part program or procedure creation in the new option.

QUINDOS 2020.1 introduces a new smarter interface, which utilises geometry and context-specific intelligent menus to guide the user through the programming task. New intuitive measurement commands further enhance the usability of the software and the customer’s user experience. Improved algorithms deliver a simpler workflow – pre-defined probing strategies and specialised approaches are a thing of the past.

“Our trademark is flexibility. QUINDOS is the Swiss Army knife of measurement technology,” says Karin Schneider, Product Manager for QUINDOS. “Thanks to the software’s latest innovations, inspection planning is smarter and customers can complete measurement even more efficiently.”
