Professional bespoke software packages

AB Technology provides custom metrology software development services, delivering software solutions for your specific inspection needs where using existing software isn’t feasible. Using the latest and most advanced processing technology available, our in-house team of developers have experience writing a range of software applications that can be either integrated with your inspection software or run as a standalone package.

Do you use hardware no longer supported by the OEM? Are you looking to upgrade but find the cost of upgrading your software prohibited? We have a history of writing shims and virtual controllers to bridge the gap allowing you to continue to use legacy software on modern hardware giving you more time and flexibility by opening up a new upgrade route.

Our project to date include:

  • Virtual controllers (MMclient)
  • Post processing of critical dimensions
  • Assembly analysis of components

MMclient, our virtual controller

Do you run the MeasureMax software with a CMM controller that is no longer supported by the OEM? Are you looking at upgrading to a modern controller but find the cost of upgrading your existing inspection programs off-putting or have an essential need for continuity? By using our MMclient software, dozens of customers around the world have overcome these obstacles.  MMclient acts as a virtual controller, allowing you to run your existing MeasureMax inspection programs on a CMM equipped with the latest Renishaw UCC controller.  This enables you to benefit from the reliability and service support offered by the latest Renishaw UCC controller whilst preserving the investment you have made in your MeasureMax programmes.

Post processing of critical dimensions

We have developed many customer specific software applications for data analysis where standard software falls short and OEM solutions aren’t practical.  Our software packages are lightweight and cost effective executables that can be called from most OEM inspection software, or run as standalone software packages. An example of this is our work with leading aerofoil manufacturers where a need was identified to post processing CMM scan data for out of plane drift of complex 3D surface measurements.  Taking on the challenge, we developed an application to compensate for the drift and calculate an accurate centroid for the aerofoil section. No matter what your requirement or industry, we want to help you get the detail you need.

Bespoke assembly analysis packages

When assembling complex components, knowing how they will fit together in advance can be invaluable for delivering the right quality on time and within budget. By combining our expert knowledge of metrology, engineering dimensioning and tolerancing and programming skills together with our customers knowledge of their product, our Engineers have helped multiple companies by delivering bespoke solutions.  From delivering a software and metrology solution that allows the accurate prediction and assembly of multiple components into a balanced rotor first time, to the analysis of safety critical assembly interactions our team has a proven track record.
