Digital Readouts & Metrology Tools

QC Digital readouts from HEIDENHAIN increase the value of your measuring machine. Benefits include:

  • Time Savings
  • Improved Reliability
  • Increased Capability
  • Enhanced Ease of Use

HEIDENHAIN digital readouts have universal applications. They can installed on new systems or used to retrofit and modernize older machines. They can be used with almost any machine where axis slides are traversed manually. Common 2-D (QC-100, QC-200, QC-320) and 3-D (QC-330) applications include:

  • Optical Comparators
  • Manual CMMs
  • Video Measuring Machines
  • Tool Makers Microscopes
  • Electronic Probes and Indicators

These are among the toughest shop hardened displays available. Key pads are highly reliable, logically arranged and ergonomically designed. Front panels are splash-protected and encased in sturdy die-cast housings. Most position display units from HEIDENHAIN include a data interface that allows for additional processing or printouts of the measured values.

Direct QC-300 retro fit kits are available for most CMMs including:

  • Brown & Sharpe Gage 2000
  • Brown & Sharpe Reflex
  • Brown & Sharpe MicroExcel
  • Brown & Sharpe MicroVal
  • Brown & Sharpe MicroHite
  • Mitutoyo B series (B231, B241 ...)
  • Mitutoyo AE series
  • Numerex CMMs
  • Zeiss C400 and Eclipse
  • Sheffield Cordax
  • DEA
  • Starrett

And nearly any optical comparator can be upgrade or retrofitted with the QC-100, QC-200 or QC-300. Common installs include:

  • Nikon
  • OGP
  • J&L
  • Starrett
  • Mitutoyo
  • Tesa
  • Kodak
  • Deltronic
  • Gagemaster
  • S-T
  • Micro-Vu
  • Excello
  • Dorsey
  • CCP

The IK 5000 QUADRA-CHEK (formerly Metronics QC 5000) software solutions for 2-D and 3-D measuring tasks is ideal for the user that needs increased evaluation, reporting and programming capabilities. If you have a mechanically reliable CMM, this may be the cost effective retrofit for which you've been looking.

IK-5000 (QC-5000) software from Heidenhain is a more powerful than the ND (Metronics QC series) displays, but equally intuitive. IK-5000 will power manual CMMs as well as both manual and CNC video measuring machines.

Since the merging of Metronics and Heidenhain, model numbers have changed and technology has been enhanced. Model identification changes:

  • QC100 is now the ND 1100 for basic 2-D comparator applications
  • QC200 is now the ND 1200 for enhanced 2-D comparator applications
  • QC320 is now the ND 1300 for advanced 2-D comparator and video applications
  • QC330 is now the ND 1400 for 3-D Video and CMM applications
  • GC100 is now the ND 2100G for digital gage interface applications
  • QC 5000 is now the IK 5000 CMM software retrofit applications

Measure Magic
Probe any 2D or 3D feature and the QC-5000 knows, automatically, what type of feature you are measuring. Datum Magic, an extension of our patented Measure Magic technology enables automatic part alignment to be performed by probing a sequence of datum features. Now you can inspect features as fast as you can think of them-and puch the work, not the buttons. With our autorepeat mode and a remote finish key, the operator cna inspect an entire part without ever looking at or touching the computer. This is ideal for large CMMs, where the inspector isn't close to the readout...a real time saver, from the leader in innvative metrology solutions.

Sensible Constructions

Do you want the line that intersects two planes? Or the circle that's created form the intersection of a plane and a cone? A distance between a 3D point and the center of a sphere? The QC-5000's intuitive user interface allows you to choose the construction and then select the features for use in the construction directly form the graphical part view. There is no need for multiple pages of different construction icons.

Easy Probe Selection

The user can select from a library of qualified probes and install the ones used most frequently in the toolbar. Just click the mouse to select them. The user can select probe tips from a star probe simply by moving the probe in the direction of the tip to be activated...the operator doesn't have to touch...or look at...the computer!

Multiple Options Part Views
Multiple-Plan Views: The QC-5000 offers true graphical part representation. Its Graphical Interface provides all the information you need in an intuitive format with four independent views: 3D modeling, XY, YZ or ZX plan view. Tolerancing or construction features may be selected from any of the views.

Measure your first part and the QC-5000 learns the datums, measuring sequence, tolerances, and reporting functions and then visually leads you through subsequent part inspections by following the flashing cursor. You simply select the program from an icon on the toolbar.

Part View Controls: Zoom in, zoom out, zoom to fit, zoom in on a selected area, pan and rotate functions, make the QC-5000 the most complete CMM readout available.

Quick View: Toolbar buttons allow the operator to view the part from any of a number of preselected orientations and elevations.

View From Probe: The QC-5000 allows you to view the graphical part representation as if you were viewing th part from the tip of the touch probe.

Layer Control: Inspectors can view the entire part at once, or organize features into "layers" making the graphical interface easier to use and understand. Ideal for complex parts with mulitple geometries, layer control gives the user control over which features are visible and which are hidden for use later in the measuring routine.
