Smart programming

Inspection path planning

Inspection path planning 2

The Silma X4 Inspection Path Planning module significantly improves productivity by offering a host of automated measurements for use with coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and industrial robots. This module reduces programming time by up to 60%* and guarantees robust, reliable programs with zero crashes.

*Time studied on an automotive industry key player

Intelligent programs that improve productivity

Inspection path planning 3

Programs generated

automatically in a couple of clicks

Inspection path planning 4

Orientation of automated heads

Optimization of positions of useful probes

Inspection path planning 5

Trajectory optimization

A faster measurement path

Inspection path planning 6

Controls overspeed

and position in singularity

Inspection path planning 7

Automated collision detection

and avoidance. A secure measurement path

Inspection path planning 8

Automated selection

of measurement tool

Inspection path planning 9 Advantages with CMMs

    • Create programs faster and more simply in several clicks!
    • Optimize trajectories for probing or for optical sensor
    • Automatic collision detection and avoidance
    • Automatic creation and selection of probe orientation
    • Automatic tool selection

Inspection path planning 10 Advantages with robots

    • Save significant programming time
    • Trajectories optimized and adapted to your measurement system: laser line, structured image or laser radar
    • Automatic collision detection and avoidance
    • Robot trajectories anticipate problems stemming from overspeed and singularity position

Integration of specific measuring rules to allow for standardization of measurement processes.
