Easy-to-use part verification software
Part verification program functionality for Renishaw OMV software
Renishaw’s market leading range of PC-based probe measurement software has been enhanced with a new version of its Renishaw OMV part verification software, now allowing users of multi-axis CNC machine tools to take advantage of its simple point-and-click 3D inspection programming for touch probes. Renishaw OMV 1.3 also allows the import of predefined data points and gives enhanced ‘best-fit’ functions for conditions including ‘Max-Material’ and ‘Least-Material’.
A PC-based part verification package for CNC machine tools, Renishaw OMV give users powerful co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM) style 3D verification against a CAD model. Operators use a simple programming interface and crystal-clear graphical reports of deviations and errors indicate whether a measured point is in, above or below tolerance, before the part is removed from the machine. Informed decisions can then be made to re-machine a part, or sign off a deviation, long before the part reaches final CMM inspection.
New for Renishaw OMV 1.3 is a multi-axis option that allows part verification programs to operate on a variety of machine tools with 3+2 axis configurations. Machine positions can be directly programmed, or the software can automatically identify the best machine orientation for a particular measurement. This new capability is currently available on Siemens and Heidenhain controllers, with support for other machine controls to be released shortly.
When used with Renishaw’s Rengage™ high-accuracy touch probes, Renishaw OMV can be used to verify multi-axis parts with a high degree of confidence. With non-lobing 3D performance, the Rengage™ touch probes are ideally suited to the accurate inspection of complex freeform and geometric features made possible with Renishaw OMV, plus a single probe calibration routine is also sufficient for every inspection point or angle to be measured.
