Inspect your parts automatically and non-destructively with industrial computed tomography (CT) using Volume Graphics software. Automation with VGSTUDIO MAX is simple to set up and works with almost every CT system on the market.
Volume Graphics provides you with a ready-to-use solution that is both fast and flexible: Whenever parts need to be analyzed repeatedly, powerful automation functions are at your side to help speed up your work.
Even if your scanned objects rarely repeat, it could still be well worth automating the recurring parts of your workflow that are general enough to be applied to all kinds of objects.
The automation features in VGSTUDIO MAX:
Analyses and measurements are at the center of any part inspection in VGSTUDIO MAX. An analysis is mainly defined by the specific parameters that you set up for it, the region of a part that it should run on, and tolerances that you want to apply to the result values. Coordinate measurement results are defined by fitting reference geometries to your scanned part and using these to derive geometric dimensions and tolerances. To make analyses and measurements reusable, you can combine parameters, tolerances, and other settings into templates.
Whenever you find yourself repeating the same steps in the same order at different times, a macro might be of help. Whether it's a surface determination, analysis, or conversion to a different format, once set up, the convenience macros provide is at your disposal whenever you start up VGSTUDIO MAX. Macros record individual interactions with the software for storage and later use across different projects and application restarts.
To further streamline your workflow, you can assign macros to specific keyboard shortcuts and set rules for the data your macros may output.
Quick play for macros:
Especially when dealing with small objects, you may find yourself having several objects of the same type in a project. Usually it makes sense to treat these different parts the same—any operation that applies to one of them should also apply to all the others.
Multi-apply for macros:
Macros, analyses, measurement plans, and any additional dependencies like reference meshes or report layouts can be combined into a standalone inspection plan which can be used for automation.
Whenever you are working with a series of scans, automation via batch processing comes in handy.
Batch processing allows you to:
Inspection plans not only make it easy to automatically create reproducible results in VGSTUDIO MAX, but can also serve as a steppingstone to the full automation of your inspection process using VGinLINE, Volume Graphics' solution for autonomous inspection.
