NDI MultiTRAK Multiple Tracker Volume Extension

MultiTRAK Multiple Tracker Volume Extension

Create a unified measurement volume for uninterrupted tracking, scanning and probing of large parts and assemblies by linking two or more PRO CMM optical trackers

Overview

The MultiTRAK option for the PRO CMM system creates a unified measurement volume for large parts and assemblies. By measuring within a single coordinate system, operators can scan and probe seamlessly around a large part. MultiTRAK improves measurement work flow and efficiency by eliminating the need to move the Optical Tracker and ensuring full coverage of the part. A MultiTRAK cell uses fix mounted or portable Optical Trackers to create the optimal measurement volume for your application. The portable option uses the power of Dynamic Part Referencing (DPR), a standard feature of the PRO CMM system. DPR creates and maintains a common coordinate system between Optical Trackers, providing operators with continual measurement, even during movement. The fix mounted option supports cells where the parts being inspected must have a consistent orientation within the measurement volume.

Add the MultiTRAK option to your PRO CMM system to create a unified measurement volume for large parts and assemblies. By measuring within a single coordinate system, operators can scan and probe seamlessly around a large part using a single software measurement plan. MultiTRAK improves measurement workflow and efficiency by eliminating the need to move the Optical Tracker and ensuring full coverage of the part.

With MultiTRAK you can significantly reduce setup time by creating the optimal measurement volume for your application. A MultiTRAK cell can be designed using fix mounted or portable Optical Trackers. The portable option uses the power of Dynamic Part Referencing (DPR), a feature that comes standard with all PRO CMM systems. DPR creates and maintains a common coordinate system between Optical Trackers, providing operators with continual measurement, even if an Optical Tracker or the part moves. Or create a fix mounted MultiTRAK setup, ideal for cells where the parts being inspected have a consistent orientation within the measurement volume.

Design the measurement cell yourself or leverage the expertise of NDI’s design team to customize your measurement solution.

Advantages:

  • Improve operator productivity when measuring large parts
  • Eliminate or reduce leapfrogging during measurement routines
  • Reduce setup time for large parts and assemblies

Common Applications:

  • Design Studios
  • Large Parts and Assemblies
  • Multi-purpose Measurement Rooms

Tracking System

MultiTRAK expands on the measurement volume of the PRO CMM system, by joining two or more of the Optical Trackers within a single software measurement plan.  The PRO CMM provides a portable, real-time tracking system that delivers higher measurement accuracy from anywhere on your shop floor.

Specifications

MultiTRAK builds on the capabilities and specifications of the PRO CMM to increase the measurement volume for large parts and assemblies. MultiTRAK specifications depend on the application set up, including the position, model, and number of Optical Trackers implemented.
