Deva CMM solutions continue to thrive in the marketplace with further support for popular metrology software packages being added all the time.
Hexagon have announced support for the Deva 001 and 037 manual CMM interfaces within their PC-DMIS 2019 R1 release and with over 30 new features and improvements, PC-DMIS continues to offer a highly flexible and widely-adopted metrology software. Available as a retrofit package for most other measurement equipment manufacturers’ machines, it allows users of non-Hexagon equipment to take advantage of PC-DMIS technology through Deva's 001 and 037 cost effective Manual CMM Retrofit Solutions.
Deva solutions offer OEMs and retrofitters alike, an easy, economical and powerful PC based measurement system compatible with a wide range of CMM software packages.
Mitutoyo MSCOSMOS is the latest addition to Deva software support. A direct interface to support CNC machines with touch probe compatibility has just been completed and was positively received at the Phönix open house in Mönchengladbach, Germany, last week.
Now users are no longer limited to running MSCOSMOS on Mitutoyo controlled machines, as this direct driver allows MSCOSMOS to be utilised on the Deva 004 CMM controller range.
Designed to meet the demanding requirements of the OEM and retrofitting CMM market, the Deva 004 is a single PCIE interface card, which integrates digital IO, a Renishaw touch probe interface and fully featured probe cycle library. On-board signal conditioning circuitry ensures high-precision position measurement so that external probe conditioning equipment is no longer needed. An ActiveX control encapsulates the functionality required by CNC CMM applications in a fast, easy to use component that is compatible with rapid application development tools such as Visual Basic and Visual 'C'. Example source code demonstrates the capabilities of the ActiveX, which is also compatible with many popular 3rd-party CMM software packages. Axis tuning and jogging facilities are provided for easy machine set-up.
Plug 'n' Play software support for 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Windows XP/Vista/Win 7/8/10 enables simple installation and automatic configuration of up to 4 controllers supporting a total of 16 axes.
Further developments from Deva for MSCOSMOS include SP25 scanning.
