MODUS

MODUS™ - powerful metrology software

  • Full support for I++ DME compliant metrology controllers, including Renishaw's UCC range of universal CMM controllers
  • Full compatibility with REVO
  • CAD-driven offline programming, with support for neutral formats of IGES, STEP, Parasolid® and VDA-FS
  • High quality integration with the CATIA® (v5 and v4), Siemens® NX™ (previously Unigraphics®), Pro/E® and Solidworks® CAD / CAM solutions
  • Full motion simulation and collision detection, including 5-axis moves
  • Native DMIS support
  • Certified mathematical algorithms
  • Powerful text and graphical reporting
  • Flexible output of results data including certified Q-DAS

MODUS software provides a powerful platform for 5-axis measurement. A configurable user interface allows native DMIS programs to be developed offline, drawing geometry, embedded dimensions and tolerance data from CAD, with full simulation and collision detection. The software includes certified algorithms for feature measurement, feature construction and part alignment.

Programs can be created offline directly from CAD with on-screen probe path verification. The CMM environment, the fixture and the location of the part on the machine can all be defined, enabling full simulation and crash detection of 5-axis measurement programs. This minimises CMM down-time as programs arrive at the machine ready to run, with little or no prove-out time required.

Standards foster interoperability

Building on a foundation of industry standards such as DMIS, I++ DME, DML and Microsoft® SQL Server, MODUS maximises compatibility with your existing programs and reports. Flexible reporting options include text-based and graphical reports, and results data that can be exported in a wide range of file formats, including certified Q-DAS for comprehensive SPC analysis.

The reporting capability of MODUS is extensive, including traditional CMM text reports with comprehensive user-defined formatting. Graphical reporting enables results to be displayed against the CAD model, including whisker charts or 3D form plotting for many features.

Below is a selection of screen shots taken from MODUS showing its many varied applications.

Case studies

  • (IN108) Case study: ANT - CMM inspection: “There is no other option to REVO®, nothing else comes close"

    When ANT Industries, an aerospace sub-contractor, carried out a study on its production processes with the aim to make improvements, it was clear that inspection was a major bottleneck. “There were thousands of non-productive hours a year where parts were either in inspection or waiting to be inspected. These are expensive parts without any value being added”, says Shaun Rowley, ANT’s Manufacturing and Sales Director.
