HxGN NC Gage
HxGN NC Gage – Measuring made easy!
NC Gage revolutionises probing on machine tools. The simple use, and innovative “Teach-in” process allow a user to create gauging programs without previous programming knowledge, even on 5 axis machines and multi-tasking machines.
HxGN NC Gage uses the same PTB-Certified algorithms used by coordinate measuring machines. This allows NC Gage to bring the highest precision to machines, and to establish trust in manufacturing processes. Measurement is not limited to specific numbers of points or 2D features. Also distances, angles between features and basic GD&T functions are available.
HxGN NC Gage is available on Windows PC or embedded in the control panel. It is currently compatible with controls from Makino, Mazak, Okuma, DMG Mori, Mitsubishi, Fanuc and others.
Features & benefitsAdvanced measuring capabilities
Use any number of functions for measurement and automatic part setup. For instance: Bores, Contructed Points, or Mid-points
Simple use with unique Teach-In function
Thanks to the dialog-based interactive teach-in method, the machine user can easily create measurement cycles without any macro programming knowledge.
Measuring on 5-axis machines (Option)
Effective use of 5 axis machines requires quick measurement and setup of workpieces. This is easier than ever with HxGN NC Gage, regardless of which 5 axis kinematic-type is used for machining and measuring.
Measuring on multi-tasking machines
NC Gage is designed for use on modern multi-tasking machines and supporting challenging machining tasks. Special functions simplify adding fully automated gauging, setup and inspection to multi-spindle processes.
CheckSet5 – Keeping 5-axis kinematics in check (Option)
Quickly identify and easily correct kinematic errors. The option CheckSet5 offers the possibility to analyse the motion of the rotation axes on 4 and 5 axis milling machines.
Reports and statistical evaluation
HxGN NC Gage produces clear and concise measurement reports similar to those from a CMM. Color-coded results for in/out of tolerance as well as a simple tolerance overview scale provides the operator with the information needed at a glance.
Statistic interface to external systems
Measurement Reports can be saved automatically or printed, and serve as documentation of the quality produced. A statistics interface is also included allowing output to Q-DAS, Excel and XML.
HxGN NC Gage is available on a wide range of machining centers and multitasking machines. Check with your machine manufacturer or with Hexagon about the availability of HxGN NC Gage.
