What is EasyCMM
EasyCmm is a revolutionary software that allows any CMM client software to drive any CMM hardware. Meaning, a CMM user can choose any CMM client software he/she prefers and connect it to any CMM hardware as if it was the original software that was designed to drive that CMM. For example: EasyCmm enables PC-DMIS to drive a Mitutoyo machine as if it was a Hexagon machine, MCOSMOS can drive any Zeiss machine as if it was a Mitutoyo machine, Quartis can drive any DEA or B&S machine and Calypso can drive any Wenzel machine, etc. EasyCmm supports both tactile and scanning touch probes as well as line laser heads of Kreon.
How does it work?
EasyCmm acts as a universal I++ server. It exposes an extended I++ server interface, so the CMM client software can use its I++ client module to communicate with EasyCmm as if it was the original CMM controller. On the other side, the end user configures EasyCmm to connect to the CMM controller he/she has and then configures with which probe heads and sensors the CMM works with. Then the magic begins: while running a part program in the CMM software of the end-user’s choice, EasyCmm gets the I++ commands from the client software and converts them to the proprietary driver commands of the specific CMM.
How does EasyCmm handles compensation values?
For error maps that reside in the CMM controller – EasyCmm simply transmits the measurements taken by the CMM’s probe to the CMM client software – while they are already compensated.
For CMMs which their error maps reside on the PC which runs the old CMM client software – EasyCmm can read the map from that PC and then knows how to compensate the measurements and provide the compensated data to the new CMM client software.
Where are the Benefits for CMM Users?
EasyCmm enables you to purchase CMMs and metrology software products independently.
Your gain – you are free to select both CMMs and software packages based on any consideration – technological, financial or otherwise.
You can use one standard metrology software for different CMM brands, decreasing the costs of operator training and increasing the flexability of staff deployment.
Your gain – cost-effectiveness and production efficiency.
You can different metrology software packages on one CMM without having to buy or set apart a separate CMM for each software product.
Your gain – reduced investment and maintenance costs and increased work flexibility.
You can shift different metrology software packages among different CMMs. You are free to change combinations to bestsuit the application.
Your gain – maximum CMM productivity.
You can expand or upgrade the software without having to bear the expenses of rewriting part programs.
Your gain – major savings in both time and manpower.
You can retrofit CMMs/CMM controllers without having to bear any extra work or costs. You will still be able to run the existing part programs using the existing software.
Your gain – EasyCmm will take over and do the matching work.
