01
integration with a measurement database

Measurement requirements including tools, nominals and tolerances, and measurement results are stored in the customer's data systems. The operator uses a custom Link application with a simple UI which automatically transfers measurement requirements and results between the database and the GapGun.

02
Real-time results capture and display

GapGuns are integrated into an existing system for capturing and displaying real-time production data. The operator works with the GapGun as normal. Behind the scenes a custom Link application relays results from the GapGUn to the customer's data system.

03
Integration with a robot

An inspection cell uses a Vetro in a fixed position with a robot moving the parts to be measured into place. The machine is operated through a custom Link application which controls and synchronises the robot and Vectro.

04
barcode driven measurement integration

The check plan is selected by scanning a barcode and measurement results are placed in a customised output file for import into the customer's quality control system. Behind the scenes a custom Link application determines which works order is requires, sends it to the GapGun, retrieves the results and generates the output file.
