Single Touch Interface
Single Touch Interface™ (STI+) makes it easy for shop floor personnel to check parts and add custom front ends without becoming CMM (Coordinate Measurement Machine) experts.
The STI+ option has two modules: one to develop the STI+ and the other to execute it.
STI+ allows users to run pre-programmed inspections and review reports without any direct interaction with the underlying PC-DMIS software. Single Touch Interfaces can be as simple as a single screen (which let operators launch one of several part programs), or as complex as a system capable of automatically locating a part on the CMM then calling up the appropriate part program to measure it.
Building STI+ screens is similar to developing a PowerPoint® presentation; application engineers can develop Single Touch Interfaces using a “Slide Show” Editor, that lets them combine setup instructions, measurement programs, reporting templates, and everything else they need to measure parts into a single, cohesive system.
