Vero Software has released SMIRT 2019 R1. It introduces new on-machine inspection functionality and enhanced templating functionality for added process planning automation.
SMIRT Inspect is an all new module for 2019 R1 that allows on-machine part inspection for profile/periphery surfaces. SMIRT Inspect utilizes the industry-trusted measurement capabilities of Hexagon’s PC-DMIS, along with the NC Gateway for communication with the machine-tool controller. Key features of SMIRT Inspect include:
- Familiar SMIRT user interface
- Automatic creation of inspection touch points based on user settings and profile curvature
- Easy addition and removal of inspection points
- Automatic collision detection as probe path and inspection points are created
- Post-processing simultaneously generates machine tool commands and inspection feature data for PC-DMIS
- Automatic generation of text-based report with inspection results
Improvements to SMIRT DieBuild
Building upon the improvements of SMIRT DieBuild and DbTemplateUtil released in 2017, functionality has been added to allow planners to automatically collect task surfaces based upon the description of the item/s mounted to it. This alleviates the need for design files to contain special feature attributes to differentiate surfaces that may share the same color, direction, or machining attribute.
SMIRT is the supplier of viewing software designed for the stamping die industry. In addition to SMIRT DieShop and SMIRT DieNC, they have developed complementary software products to aid in the estimation, planning, and scheduling of large die and tool construction projects.
