Features

Architecture and Input

Intuitive Displays

The core of IK 5300 is a simple, visual part view window with conventional toolbar to define measurement processes. A consistent, intuitive interface ensures operator accuracy and reduces training time.

Software Training & Support

Full on-site or off-site training is offered with every installation, which can be tailored to individual requirements. Additional application support is also available for the development of custom routines and processes.

Measurement

Measure Magic®

To measure, simply probe points and click. IK 5300 detects, without the operator’s intervention, the feature type being measured. With the patented Measure Magic® feature, operators can inspect multiple features without taking their eyes off the part, increasing throughput, improving accuracy and reducing user fatigue.

Sound and colour cues, with animated “next-step” prompts help to streamline operator action without interrupting workflow.

Intersections and constructions

Select two or more features to create intersections or constructions.

Advanced Calculations

Results fields can be customised for special measurement needs and complex calculations by embedding formulas (e.g. automatically calculate area or circumference dimensions with each circle measurement, or perform compound calculations based on coefficients extracted from multiple features).

Programming and Automation

Part Programming

Simplify difficult or repetitive measurement sequences with a robust programming interface. Program a measurement sequence once and run it back as often as you need. Measure the same number of points per feature, in the identical sequence, part after part.

Simplified Program Creation

Turn on the Record function to enable the software to ‘learn’ measuring sequences, tolerances and reporting functions for subsequent parts.

CAD File Import

Import pre-existing part specifications from part programs to jumpstart the part programming process and eliminate transcription errors.

Data Management and Output

Part Image Archive

Data Management Integrated tools allow capture and archive in a variety of formats and incorporate custom spread sheets export to simplify the management of complex or non-standard calculations.

Output

Streamline communication among operators, management, departments and quality control teams. Customised reports can be sent to a variety of applications, printers or databases, with the ability to export formatted data throughout the company or around the world.

Tolerance Displays

IK 5300 translates data-intensive reports into informative graphics so operators can quickly see the results of tolerances applied to geometric features. Colour-coded results show green/red for pass/fail.

Report Generator

Build high-quality reports with drag-and-drop report templates to simplify data selection and formatting. Save, print then share measurement result reports to team members for review.

Data Export

Conveniently transfer measurement data to CAD for reverse engineering applications, or to Microsoft applications for enhanced data processing.
