SYSTEMS AND SOFTWARE MMS DECEMBER 2018 102 • For holes from 1.5 to 25.4 mm • Customs available • User friendly • Proudly Made in the USA Michigan Deburring tools work better, last longer and lower your cost per hole! 810-227-1000 Brighton, Michigan HIGH VOLUME HOLE DEBURRING Perfected in Michigan 1,, 1,, 1,, /"" Production Vacuum Chambers Measurement Software Update Reduces Alignment Errors Verisurf Software Inc. has release the first update of Verisurf 2018 measurement software for automated quality inspection and reporting, scan- ning and reverse engineering, tool building, and assembly guidance. Advanced new fea- tures in this update are based on customer feedback and deliver increased efficiency as well as improved quality functions. Auto Align Minimum Zone Fit produces more accurate alignments of parts and features by allowing the cen- tering of alignment errors, which reduces the maximum error result. This new algorithm extends the Verisurf Enhanced Bundle Adjust feature for high-accuracy, large-volume measurements using Leica, Faro and API laser trackers. CSV Database Support simplifies integration with software partner applications for first article inspection (FAI), production part approval process (PPAP), and statistical process control (SPC) such as InspectionXpert and Dimensional Control Systems. The update's other enhancements include support for Catia V5 R28 file import; 3D model virtual device display for CMM Master 500 and Renishaw Equator 500; and a Software Development Kit (SDK) support for the import of nine different point cloud and mesh file formats, which improves integration with many brands and models of 3D scanners. | Verisurf Software Inc. | 714-970-1683 | Starter Kits Give Machine Shops Easy Entrance to IIoT Harting is making it easy to implement Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions with three new starter kits.

The first kit is the Mica CISS Complete IIoT Starter Kit for a basic condition-monitoring application. It comes with a sensor that can measure seven dif- ferent parameters including vibrations, acoustics, temperature, humidity and more. The Mica RF-R300 Complete RFID Starter Kit contains everything needed for a basic RFID asset tracking appli- cation: industrial RFID tags, the Mica RF-R300 reader, two antennas and all required cabling.
