Link Standard Sml

link software facilitates complete integration of Gapgun and vectro laser measurement
into existing production systems

Untitled

improve manufacturing and quality decisions
System Overview:

Link integration enables retrieval of information from the production system about parts to be measured. Point location, nominals, tolerances and CAD information are used to generate works orders. Following measurement with GapGun or Vectro, the results can then be automatically uploaded to the production system database.

benefits:
Design a process that meets your exact requirements  Speed up and simplify your data analysis  Collect more data, with even less operator training Automate sending measurement data exactly where you need it  Deploy measurement instructions from one central location

USE PRODUCT BARCODES

Link GapGun and Vectro to a
barcode reader, so parts can be scanned to retrieve a linked measurement instruction to
initiate inspection.

INTEGRATE WITH INLINE DISPLAYS

Display measurement results
on shop floor displays, as the
operator measures.
