Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division has launched PC-DMIS 2020 R2, the latest edition of its metrology software. PC-DMIS 2020 R2 contains a series of new features and improvements that optimize the user experience and the efficiency of inspections.
PC-DMIS 2020 R2 Full Interfacing with HxGN SFx Cloud Based Software | Asset Management is, according to Hexagon, a major development. This solution enables simple and precise monitoring and analysis of the operation of key resources through a centralized, easy-to-use dashboard, whether the resources are located at a single site or are distributed over several units around the world. The data collected, hosted on the internet, is accessible with a browser on any mobile device, allowing operators to monitor the exploitation of the resource, downtime, event notifications, with a view to real-time data-driven decision making. The detail view of a routine allows users to access the view of a given routine and notably obtain information on the process, the execution and the history of a routine, the results. PC-DMIS users with a software maintenance contract also receive instant event notifications on given routines on all resources.
The Geometric Tolerance feature is the new “rule-based” GD&T library that supports ASME Y14.5-2018, ISO 1101 - 2017 standards, and incorporates feature enhancements and enhancements related to the XactMeasure library. In 2018, the Y14.5 definition of reference elements was revised to provide a mathematical definition of a single reference element that represents the mechanical reference simulator or “true geometric counterpart” according to Y14.5.1-2019. This new definition improves the correlation between mechanical inspection methods and digital data from coordinate measuring systems, and more accurately reproduces the fit state and function of assembled parts. PC-DMIS is now one of the first software to support ASME Y14.5-2018 and ISO 1101-2017 standards, enabling manufacturers to reliably and efficiently fulfill the requirements of new design specifications. The software's new error checking ensures that specifications meet ASME or ISO standards, and identifies incorrect annotations with descriptive warning messages to make it easier to locate and remove drawing errors. The new GD&T library also supports model-based definition (MBD), in accordance with current ASME and ISO MBD standards.
PC-DMIS 2020 R2 also makes reporting more flexible with the 3D PDF feature. This new feature eliminates the need for users to print many pages that show parts from different angles, since the digital 3D PDF file allows for quick and easy product analysis and data extraction.
"We are very pleased to announce the launch of this brand new version of the leading PC-DMIS metrology software," observes Ken Woodbine, PC-DMIS Collaborative Solutions product line manager in Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division. PC-DMIS 2020 R2 incorporates new functions and features that set it apart from the competition. We believe we have developed the first metrology software that meets the latest ASME standards and thus meets the needs of a demanding supply chain. We are also very proud of interfacing with SFx Asset Management software, providing users and management with real-time data on metrology equipment, regardless of location. "
This is the second of two major updates to PC-DMIS scheduled for 2020. Service packs will be continuously updated to ensure maximum platform reliability.
