Listening to customers we learned that for complex machines LEVELSOFT had its limitations
The NEW software MT-SOFT (Machine Tool Inspection Software) allows now to go beyond these limitations
The newly developed software MT-Soft allows to measure independently various geometrical standard inclination measuring instruments. The individual measuring results can be saved and consolidated 3-dimensionally allowing the determination of the total error of the machine. A simple example of the great variety of the possibilities of the software's e.g. the measurement of the vertical spindle in relation to a horizontal guide way of a machine tool. The logical layout and the clear structure of the software allows to easily measure even complex machines.
Who are the users of the software MT-SOFT? Manufactures of complex and precision machine tools Technicians who are assembling and adjusting such machines on site Owners and Users who need to revaluate and correct the accuracy of such machines regularly
Where is the pay back of an investment into MT-SOFT?
Increased Quality • Eliminating geometrical errors already during manufacturing reduces the risk for surprises during the acceptance test procedure • Rotational errors of components can be excluded prior to assembly • Sustainable quality assurance due to the fact that the measurements are always carried out the same way
User Friendliness • Measuring templates with the exact definition of the measurement layout, the instruments used and the jigs applied have to be defined only once and can be re-used for future measurements • Clear and easily understandable graphical presentation allowing the assessment of errors on individual geometrical elements • Corporate identity users or owners company logo types can easily be added to the protocols • Each measurement is documented and each document is clearly assigned to one specific geometrical element of the machine • If required only a short report can be printed • Operator guidance and print-outs in several languages are possible
Cost Effectiveness • Reduced time per measuring task compared to other conventional methods • Only the element which was re-worked or re-adjusted has to be measured again • Due to its 3-dimensional analysis, pinpointing the source for the overall error is substantially facilitated, allowing and efficient adjustment of the elements and therewith of the total machine • Once established and stored, complex measuring tasks can be carried out by less trained staff
Templates There is a choice of several predefined templates for each new measuring task
What can be measured with the MT-Soft software? • All types of horizontal and vertical guide ways • Rotating axis, e.g. rectangularity between the horizontal surface of a working table and a vertical spindle • Rotation of machine tool elements: PITCH and ROLL • Circles: Flatness and angular deviations of circular horizontal paths • Partial Surfaces: Flatness and relative position of several independent surfaces (co-planarity)
LEVELSOFT PRO the well know software is available as an optional module within MT-SOFT as well
