Operate any CMM with Verisurf

Universal CMM is a software-only solution that enables seamless communication between Verisurf AUTOMATE and popular CMM and head controllers. Just click on the CAD features you want included in your AUTO inspect plan and run your CMM.

You no longer need to tolerate the outdated metrology software that came with your CMM. Now, Universal CMM lets you run Verisurf on common brands of motorized CMMs from the world’s leading manufacturers. This means you don’t have to maintain different metrology software for each proprietary CMM or endure reduced productivity because the one person who knows how to use the proprietary software is unavailable.

Universal CMM enables direct, plug-&-play communications between the most common CMM brands and Verisurf’s open-standard I++ client. The result is an easy-to-use system offering productivity improvements that have benefited the many global manufacturers who select Verisurf.

Because it is a software-only solution, Universal CMM eliminates the need for costly and disruptive controller and probing system hardware upgrades or retrofits. Typically, installing and configuring your new Universal CMM software is all that is required to start using Verisurf on your existing CMM. This means you can continue to use your legacy software and inspection programs if necessary to avoid productivity interruptions while your team migrates to using Verisurf.

In addition to communicating with your CMM and probing system controllers, Universal CMM will utilize existing CMM error map files on your CMM’s controller or client PC and apply this information for error correction during operation.

Once Universal CMM is set up, you can begin using Verisurf Automate to interactively build, edit, preview, and submit inspection plans to your CMM. Verisurf Automate users are immediately productive with a rich 3D environment that includes an object oriented operations manager, point-and-click CAD feature extraction, and solid model associativity.

You can view a list of CNC CMM brands and models currently supported by Universal CMM now in the hardware compatibility section of this website. Additional information on Verisurf's Universal CMM software-only solution is available in the Universal CMM Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document or directly from your Verisurf representative. We also invite you to complete and submit the Verisurf Universal CMM Survey form to determine whether your current CNC CMM can improve productivity by using Verisurf with the addition of Universal CMM.

Testimonial

Verisurf has become the standard in our company for a total, 1-stop metrology solution. We use Verisurf''s alignment and best fit tools to perform live comparison of as-built point clouds to nominal CATIA models. This approach has drastically reduced the time our inspectors need to verify parts and assemblies. The systems unique, CAD-based architecture has also given us the ability to perform reverse engineering from point cloud collection to solid modeling - all within a single application. We''ve simultaneously accelerated accurate data collection while improving communications between our inspection team and engineering by standardizing all of our inspection reports using Verisurf''s flexible and customizable report management tools.
