January 24, 2013
January 24, 2013 – Brighton, MI - Nikon Metrology, Inc. (NMI) announces a new software breakthrough with Metrologic Group, providing a complete set of new functionalities and applications for Laser Radar, and other NMI products. Metrologic has combined Large-Scale capabilities into its popular Metrolog software, now offering large-scale point clouds with fully automated functionalities. These include edge detection, curve and surface-based feature extraction, best in class GD&T, high-performance point-cloud analysis, and a single interface throughout the range of Nikon Metrology’s product line. “Analyzing and using point cloud data generated by any of Nikon Metrology’s laser scanning products including our Laser Radar, is now easier than ever. Simply scan a part directly into Metrolog X4 to process measurement results quickly and accurately. There’s no limit to the features that you can measure directly or extract automatically from this point cloud! Simply compare the point cloud directly to a CAD Model for simple go/no-go conditions or overall deviations to the model. You can also analyze prismatic and free-form features relative to GD&T. The combination of the Nikon G3 Laser Radar and Metrolog X4 software is a true innovation in manufacturing and measurement, delivering automation, ease of use and enabling customers to guarantee product performance and quality while sustaining maximum production efficiencies” says Robert Wasilesky, Senior Vice President, Sales, the Americas, for Nikon Metrology.
