Geomagic Control

Geomagic® Control™

Geomagic Control (formerly known as Geomagic Qualify®) is one of the industry’s most comprehensive, robust and accurate 3D metrology solution and automation platforms.

Geomagic Control delivers high accuracy, speed and comprehensive, automated reporting on the quality of as-built parts for first-article inspection, production inspection, and supplier management using CMM and laser scanning tools. [CAD importer tools and airfoil analysis included at No Charge to help manufacturers rapidly increase product and manufacturing quality, identify process issues and build productivity]

Advanced GD&T, probing and dimensional inspection functions enable fast and precise measurement of parts.

This software includes intelligent creation of reports in 3D PDF.

Also, he Geomagic Control Automation Platform delivers the power to streamline almost every process, reduce human interaction in measurements and recording, decrease measuring time, and markedly enhance R&R results--dramatically cutting production line downtime, increasing accuracy and improving part quality during and after manufacturing.

Features

Support for all industry-standard hardware devices and extensive file format support

  • Wide range of supported probing and tactile devices [including added functionality to help streamline connectivity and use]
  • Support of all industry-standard non-contact and optical scanners [plus tools to enable automation of scanning in near-production-line scenarios]

Free, integrated 3D CAD importers including PMI data such as GD&T and reference geometry

  • Import native files from major CAD platforms [at no additional cost]
  • Import nominal features and GD&T data from CATIA, NX, [Creo Elements/Pro also supported]

Robust GD&T functionality, standard dimensioning, and reference geometry creation

  • Full range of intuitive measurement and dimensioning tools and settings
  • Automatic detection of geometric features [spheres, planes, cones, etc.]
  • Real-time deviation tools for fixturing and quick checks of out-of-tolerance conditions
  • Evaluate GD&T callouts and user-defined annotations
  • Define nominal geometry with or without a CAD model [then measure deviations from those nominals]
  • Iterative alignment tools
  • Comprehensive fitting statistics for each probed point [plus Exclude and Refit functions]
  • Display of form errors in digital readout gives user an immediate indication of the quality of the probed surface and  probability of an erroneously collected point

Best-in-class automation platform and scripting, includes multiple inspection functionalities

  • Use Python Scripting plus drag-and-drop automation in the Geomagic Control Automation Platform to automate processes and customize the environment to your company’s unique needs
  • Access a wide range of commands via the platform including: CAD model access, constrained alignments, reporting, point processing, polygon processing
  • Use the GUI-less application of Geomagic Control to execute macros and scripts faster and use less memory doing so

Also includes

  • Extensive alignment tools like QuickAlign™ for establishing reference systems
  • Intuitive user interface and selection tools
  • Simple, customizable reporting tools which include embedded 3D PDF models
  • NIST- & PTB-certified for accuracy and repeatability
  • Advanced airfoil analysis

Applications

Parts Manufacturing

Diverse parts manufacturers use Geomagic Control to verify the integrity of manufactured parts and  quickly identify issues that occur during manufacturing. Using non-contact scanning (offline and inline), CMMs, probes and CT scanners, measurements can be quickly taken, analyzed and reported.

Aerospace

Aerospace manufacturers use Geomagic Control extensively to measure advanced turbine blade design specs, including twist, mean camber line, maximum thickness, lead trailing edge and trailing edge radius.  [Geomagic Control’s Airfoil analysis lends unique speed] integration requirements.

Mold and Tool Making

Mold makers and toolmakers benefit by using Geomagic Control to verify the accuracy of molds, tools and dies as they are created. Where the human eye might not detect slight blemishes, Geomagic Control can easily identify and show where errors exist. 

Medical Manufacturing and Procedures

Whether checking new medical implants for accuracy or measuring and analyzing worn parts to improve designs, Geomagic Control can play a vital role in improving quality, especially in the area of custom medical manufacturing. Recent advances in medical CT scanning also make it feasible to check the progress of remedial surgery – like orthodontic procedures – quickly and painlessly.
