Aberlink 3D

The whole philosophy for Aberlink is to make measurement easy. Aberlink 3D software has been written by engineers for engineers and sets the industry standard for simple-to-use software. Designed around a graphical interface, Aberlink 3D can work in 2D or 3D, on manual or CNC CMMs and is equally at home when used with either touch, scanning or vision systems. It is easy to understand why Aberlink 3D has become the software of choice not only for Aberlink, but for numerous other manufacturers of measuring devices around the world. Aberlink 3D software is not only way ahead of its competition in being the industry standard for ‘easy-to-use’ software, but also has the depth of functionality to make it the choice for either occasional users or full-time inspection professionals.

Aberlink 3D software is revolutionary. As a component is measured a representation of it is built up on the screen. The user simply clicks on the measured features to call up dimensions exactly as they would appear on a drawing.

Inspection reports can be in the form of fully dimensioned graphical representations as created on the screen, or tabulated reports in various formats that can show nominals, tolerances, errors, pass/fails, geometric tolerances etc. These reports can also be output to an Excel spreadsheet.

Further reports are available to show the form of features (roundness, straightness etc.), hole or point positions, or complete batch results on one report. The user’s company name also appears on all outputs.

Every time a component is inspected, a programme for measuring subsequent components is automatically created. The software also calculates ‘safe’ moves between features, even when the probe is indexing – just another thing that the operator doesn’t have to worry about!

Popular throughout the world and available in many languages, Aberlink’s revolutionary measurement software provides the user with a powerful, yet easy-to-use solution for inspection measurements. This not only increases component throughput but vastly reduces the learning period for new users.
