PC-DMIS Touch is a revolutionary new way to interact with inspection data and coordinate measurement devices. With a full-screen interface, advanced Multi-Touch technology, intuitive inspection routines, and the power of PC-DMIS built in - PC-DMIS Touch is an ideal complement to many measurement applications.

With PC-DMIS Touch you can quickly measure prismatic shapes, take dimensions, print reports and generate and run repeatable inspection routines in a fraction of the time. With PC-DMIS Touch's incredible ease of use, you are in control of the data collection. It's an ideal complement to many 3D inspection systems.




PC-DMIS Touch MeasurementThe New Way to Measure

The attractive and intuitive user interface of PC-DMIS Touch is so easy to use that operators will be confident in hours, not days, so that your Absolute Arm delivers immediate ROI.

There’s no need to navigate through menus in order to make your measurement, just touch to begin! PC-DMIS Touch has the power and functionality to make what should be simple… simple.The user is guided through a full set of inspection tools, such as construction of features or feature sets, 2D and 3D dimensional reporting.

Feature Recognition: The operator doesn’t need to define what feature he wants to measure prior to using the arm. PC-DMIS Touch will decide which features are geometrically possible based on the points collected and highlight any possible features from the point set, such as circle and plane. The operator may then choose on the spot the matching feature.

Run measurement routines easily: All arm measurements are recorded so can be run as many times as you like. Also, existing PC-DMIS programs can be run with Touch.


PC-DMIS Touch ConstructionsConstruction Zone

Feature Construction tasks are completed by a simple, consistent workflow.

PC-DMIS Touch helps the user either select an already measured feature from the list, directly from the graphical representation, measure a new one or any combination depending on the required input.

The 3D View can be panned, rotated and zoomed with just a gesture in a very intuitive fashion so that the programmer or operator can confidently interact with the software.


PC-DMIS Touch Dimensioning Dimensioning

GD&T functionality is built in and includes: Flatness, Roundness, Cylindricity, Concentricity, Straightness, True Position, Parallelism, Perpendicularity, and Angularity





PC-DMIS Touch AlignmentsAll Lined Up

PC-DMIS Touch organizes measurement plan features intuitively by “Face,” a new concept for the traditional work-plane.

PC-DMIS Touch also guides the user through automated alignment sequences depending on the available feature types.

For instance, a Plane-Line-Point alignment is completed by either measuring all three features, selecting previously measured features from the list or graphics display, or a combination of both.

As easy as 3-2-1.


PC-DMIS Touch ReportingReporting Live

As features are measured the user selects whether or not to display all or part of the corresponding data on the report while at the same time updating feature nominal and tolerance data.

A quick swipe to the right provides instant access to the report with a statistical view of how the measured features are stacking up against their respective tolerance requirements.

Reports are created automatically during the part measurement. If you want to remove something, or change a tolerance, just touch on the desired feature in the list.

All measurement reports are saved separately from the measurements themselves, making archiving them much easier. Any time you need to find a report, just type a part of its name into the live filter.
