To obtain trustworthy results, a measurement system analysis (MSA) is performed prior to production through repeatability and Gauge R&R studies. InnovMetric proposes an easy-to-use and fully integrated software solution to perform these studies.
Custom bent tube and rod forms need to be measured to conform to the design callout from engineering drawings or tables. In addition, there is a need to document tubes and rods that have been created in the field, or highly modified for fit and function, as 3D models that can be imported into CAD software. Both the measurement and the CAD-creation operations can be realized easily using the free PolyWorks|Inspector™ macro, IMTube.
