Complete Metrology Automation Platform
Geomagic Control is a comprehensive inspection automation platform for streamlining in-line and repetitive inspection processes that use 3D scanners and other portable metrology devices. With this feature-rich software platform, you can easily program CAD comparisons, GD&T and go/no-go operations to be performed automatically on any type of part.
Make Inspection Work for You
Eliminate workarounds and don’t miss a single detail. With Geomagic Control you can create and run purpose-built inspection processes that do exactly what you need.
Inspect Anything More Efficiently
If you’re inspecting parts or components, Geomagic Control eliminates extraneous or wasteful processes. Reduce waste, avoid production errors down the line, free-up personnel, and have critical systems up and running faster with Geomagic Control’s single, stable, fully customisable platform.
Speed Up Manufacturing and Assembly
Geomagic Control’s powerful scripting and customisation capabilities let you move faster than one-size-fits-all inspection solutions or manual processes. Geomagic Control can handle the heavy lifting of point cloud processing and analysis, as well as run 3D scanners, robots and other components.
Harness the Power of 3D Scanning
Geomagic Control was built from the ground up to maximise the capabilities of popular contact and non-contact metrology devices, handling millions of measured points along with the unique alignment and measurement methods that point clouds require. So you can reliably have more complete part views and better control of complex shapes.
Inspect with Confidence
You rely on your inspection results. That is why Geomagic Control’s geometry calculation algorithms have been tested by America’s NIST, Britain’s NPL and independently certified by Germany’s PTB metrology authority as Class 1 accuracy. Top manufacturers around the world trust Geomagic Control to measure thousands of parts every day.
Built for Point Clouds and Probing
Capable of handling millions of points from any 3D scanner, Geomagic Control takes advantage of that rich data to generate easy-to-read deviation colour maps and perform detailed analysis of your parts automatically. It also supports many probe-based devices, so you can mix measurement techniques for optimal performance.
Works Seamlessly with Your CAD Files
Geomagic Control imports native fi les from popular CAD systems, including SolidWorks®, CATIA®, Siemens NX®, and Pro/ENGINEER®. With this native import capability, your GD&T callouts and reference geometry come in with the CAD geometry, making it easy to set up inspection routines. You can also seamlessly integrate and compare scan data from your production floor to the original design data in seconds, creating go/no-go reports to ensure the highest quality at every moment.
Robust GD&T Functionality
Geomagic Control comes with a full range of intuitive measurement, dimensioning, and tolerancing tools and settings. Whether you are looking for automatic detection of geometric features, real-time deviation tools, or iterative alignment, it can all be found in one comprehensive solution.
Automation for Faster, More Reliable Inspection
Use Python Scripting plus drag-and-drop automation to customise the environment and processes to your company’s needs. By creating an open source environment, you can access a wide range of commands including CAD model access, constrained alignments, reporting, point processing and polygon processing.
Maximise Your Hardware
Whether you are using a tactile device or a non-contact scanner, the power to work directly within the application is at your disposal. You can also use the Python Scripting feature to fully automate scanning.
