Proven in the most challenging application environments CAMIO 8 is the CMM software of choice for many of the world’s largest manufacturers. By leveraging the productivity benefits of CAMIO, manufacturers can focus on accelerating lead times and improving product quality while reducing costs. CAMIO’s interoperability across CMM platforms, sensor technology and manufacturing sites, is a unique advantage which guarantees the sustainability of your investment in software and inspection programs.
Multi-Sensor Support: The right tools for success
CAMIO offers true multi-sensor capability, allowing best-practice selection of sensor technology for each task. This flexibility improves the quality of the inspection data and reduces CMM cycle times. As needs change, or new sensor technology is introduced, inspection programs can be easily migrated from one technology to another due to CAMIOs unique intelligent handling of CMM measurements.
Intelligent Programming Focusing on Productivity
Simplified programming workflow
CAMIO’s graphical off-line programming environment is developed with every user in mind. With fewer mouse clicks required and instant access to all programming functions from the single ribbon toolbar, the programming experience is both fast and easy.
Program multiple features of different types within a single operation
Generating CMM inspection programs feature by feature can take a long time. CAMIO allows users to program multiple features within a single operation. This both simplifies and speeds up the programming task.
Full program simulation prior to operation
Full graphical interaction with the software allows the program to be fully simulated prior to operation. The Probe Check function steps the probe model around the programmed path (forward and backwards) to edit clearance moves and the use of an optimum probe head angle. Any potential collisions are highlighted and can be corrected before the first part is measured, saving valuable CMM down-time when proving out new inspection programs.
Change between contact and non-contact probing within the same measurement program, thanks to CAMIO’s true multi-sensor capability and simplified probe management.
Laser Scanning Support
Use CAMIO to scan features and surface areas with greater ease for both reverse engineering and surface analysis purposes.
CAMIO includes full support for the programming and reporting of geometric features measured with a laser probe. This provides true multi-sensor capability to change between contact and non-contact measurements within the same part program in order to measure surface and geometric features
CAMIO is compatible with many probe systems and a large range of CMM types. Furthermore, the software is compliant to DMIS, PTB, I++ and Q-DAS. Many companies have multiple CMMs to program. Having the ability to make programs for each specific machine is essential. Using Machine Launch, CAMIO is opened with the chosen machine model and the software is set with the correct configuration for the machine (i.e. working volume, probe head etc.).
Full machine simulation is available for on-line or off-line simulation and program testing. This can also include all CMM accessories such as tip and probe changing racks.
CAMIO uses Microsoft SQL Server to store both inspection results and machine specific data (i.e. probe calibration data). Inspection data is stored at program level by date and time and the database can be filtered to show a user defined list of entries. ie to display machine or operator specific programs. Database management is achieved through the Database Administration Tool with options to import and export data to files for back-up purposes. Data storage is no longer CAMIO version specific. This means that when the software is upgraded, the existing database is re-used and access to archived machine and previous inspection data is instantly available. For customers who have access to an existing Enterprise version of Microsoft SQL Server, CAMIO can be connected directly to this to take advantage of unlimited storage space.
CAMIO offers optional direct CAD interfaces to a long list of popular CAD packages.
Read and write CAD data in CAMIO through international exchange formats or directly from the native CAD format with the use of optional CAD interface licenses.
