Hexagon Metrology’s PC-DMIS Touch Portable measurement software features a full-screen interface, advanced multi-touch technology and intuitive inspection routines designed to complement portable measurement applications. It is now available with and said to be particularly well-suited to the company’s Romer measuring arms.

Using high-resolution multi-touch display technology on a tablet PC, users can physically interact with the software’s guided measurement sequences and report templates. One-time dimensions are executed through intuitive automated measurement sequences, while more complex measurement plans are created by simply following guided sequences and measuring features directly on the part. A graphical representation of the measured features is displayed in the center of the interface during all measurement tasks.

PC-DMIS Touch organizes measurement plan features intuitively using the “Face” concept for the traditional work plane. The user is guided through measurement processes using a full set of inspection tools, such as simple feature measurement, construction of features or feature sets, 2D and 3D dimensional reporting, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing configuration, and more. Each of these tasks follows a consistent, intuitive sequence that the company says can be quickly learned with minimal training. The software also allows for execution of existing PC-DMIS routines with a simple swipe of the finger.
