Software from Carl Zeiss Makes Measuring Plans More Dynamic

CALYPSO enables measurement plan programming based on the production process-oriented measurement planning principle. A CNC program in CALYPSO itself is no longer linear but hierarchical and therefore in line with the production process.

Segments for partial measurements can be easily selected from a 100 percent inspection.

The technique of feature-oriented measuring permits individual inspection of selected size, form and position features. Carl Zeiss describes the ability of automatically modifying a measurement plan depending on requirements as adding “More dynamic to the measurement plan.”

Single features or entire production segments can also be inspected depending on the process.

Measurement sequences required for the process segment to be evaluated can be automatically extracted from a complete CNC run and used depending on the status of production or the specified statistical parameters.

Users define the rules based on production parameters to make measuring runs more efficient. A modification of CALYPSO CNC programs is not required. The system automatically calculates the new travel paths for the dynamic characteristic lists and the selected features.

Influences caused by changes in the production process, such as a tool change, can be immediately inspected. Tool endurance can be extended as the characteristics influenced by the tool can be better monitored.

The targeted monitoring of the relevant feature sequence leads to more productive measuring, thus improving quality assurance.
