Choose from the following metrology software options:

M3 ‘Touch2Measure’ Metrology Technology

'Touch-to-measure' means that in addition to conventional mouse control, you can 'pinch' to zoom, 'swipe' to pan across an image and 'touch' to take a measurement.

You can even trace your finger around a complex shape to 'see' the feature.

Icon-based touch-screen control provides users with smartphone familiarity, with a Windows 7-based operating system allows for simple integration with applications such as Microsoft Excel (not included), or connection to network printers etc.

With simplicity at its core, 'touch-to-measure' software can be used by shift workers or advanced users alike, simplifying work steps, reducing operator errors, while minimising training requirements:

  • Simple yet powerful feature measurement
  • Touch screen operation
  • No multiple menu software options to distract the operator
  • CAD like Part View mark-up for easy inspection of the measured data
  • Multiple video tools to match the job in hand, from cross hair to full video edge detection
  • DC or Direct Compare option to allow simple CAD import of overlay drawings to check those complex geometric parts for a simple Go/No Go decision

M2VED Metrology Software

  • Active video crosshair for automatic capture of data points
  • Intuitive interface with uncluttered easy navigation
  • PC based metrology software for manual stages

Achieve More with Two Measurement Systems in One

Components come in all shapes, colours, and textures and therefore require different methods of measurement. The Swift Duo was created for operators that need a versatile measuring solution that allows them to seamlessly switch from video to optical measurement in the same routine.

Featuring Touch2Measure Technology

The Swift Duo features 'next generation' multi-touch measurement software. With smartphone familiarity, 'touch-to-measure' technology makes the Swift Duo exceptionally intuitive, easy to operate and easy to learn. Click on the software tab to learn more.

Measuring Stage Calibration with NLEC

The Swift Duo is available with a range of high specification, high performance measuring stage options, providing a measuring range of up to 200mm x 100mm.m

Utilising the most accurate correction method available, non-linear error correction (NLEC) uses a software algorithm to calculate and correct any errors across the measuring stage. All measuring stages are factory-set with NLEC calibration prior to installation.
