Up to 95% reduction in measurement program preparation time                              Dramatically higher measurement operation efficiency                                

↓Stable measurement quality                                                                                                   ↓Intuitive operations        

To increase the efficiency of measurement operations, take a close look at the design process.
Just adding tolerance information to 3D CAD models makes the "one-click"
generation of measurement models by "MiCAT Planner" possible. Safe up to 95 per cent time with our ground-breaking CMM measurement program generation software.

 

Measurement program preparation time
cut by up to 95%


 

What took 45 to 60 minutes with a traditional "2D diagram" manual method and 15 to 20 minutes with a "2D diagram + 3D CAD" method, can now be completed in approximately 3 minutes using MiCAT Planner.

Measurement possible in the minimum time;
dramatic increase in measurement operation efficiency



What took 45 to 60 minutes with a traditional "2D diagram" manual method and 15 to 20 minutes with a "2D diagram + 3D CAD" method, can now be completed in approximately 3 minutes using MiCAT Planner.

Automatically optimized measurement path

 

Using optimisation functions, the smallest number of probe-position and tool changes and the shortest measurement path are determined by the software, and a program is generated for the measurement in the minimum amount of time.

 

By shortening measurement time, 
large measurement operation efficiency
gains are possible!

 

Stable measurement quality with no variations between workers


By defining measurement rules using the rules editor function, you can automatically generate a measurement path conforming to those rules. This prevents quality variations between programmers.

Eliminate variations in measurement quality

By defining measurement rules, you can automatically generate a measurement path conforming to those rules, so there are no variations between programmers.

 

Intuitive operations; easy-to-use simple view


The MiCAT Planner screen configuration provides a "simple view" configuration that enables intuitive operations (3D view, plan view, etc.). You can also freely customise positioning and window size.


Screen configuration and functions

Screen configuration and functions
① 3D view Graphical information is displayed.
・Measuring device information
・CAD models, tolerance information
・Measuring points, measurement path
・Measuring animation
② Plan view ・Display list of measuring elements, tolerances, etc.
・The existence of measurement and evaluation can be selected using a check box.
③ Property view Element, tolerance, and measuring point name changes and measuring point editing can be done for each individual element.
④ Program view ・Display measurement details and projected measurement times.
・Using the animation function, it is possible to execute a 3D-view measurement animation.
