Optional CAPPS Advanced modules
The following optional modules are available:
Pipes & Tube
Design pipes, tubes, and bent rod from scratch, with no need to import CAD data! Simply create by entering your Y/B/C or X/Y/Z parameters that are compliant with manufacturing standards.
AAT offers statistical process control (SPC) for engineers to understand and monitor process variation through control charts. CAPPS processes these charts by plotting a product's quality variable over a period of time on a sequence plot.
Blade & Airfoil
- Calculate measurement points and vectors from CAD models
- Measure curves and surfaces from CAD or reverse engineering
- Single point scanning or continuous scan with SP25 or REVO 5 Axis head
- Automatically calculate blade parameters
- Leading and Trailing radius and points
- Center lines
Dual arm machines are used to inspect large work pieces. Their modular design allows two CMM machines to be operated under one common WCS. CAPPS can configure dual arms as master and slave and store data in a shared location.
CAPPS supports thermal compensation by using a Pico temperature sensor (but is capable of supporting a variety of other sensors). Readings from scales and inspection parts are adjusted based on the temperature sensor.
Users can control and see the affect of the compensation from the temperature page. As well as the many configuration settings available with this module. Temperature compensation can be used in either Online or Offline modes. Online mode using an actual sensor to get data and Offline mode using user settings to mimic behavoir of temperature changes (manual entry).
Analog Scanning uses continuous scanning of features for point cloud data. This process can be used for reverse engineering or surface data.
