The importance of Software Maintenance
While coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) are built to last, metrology software evolves at a much faster pace. As well as ensuring that software matches the capabilities of rapidly improving hardware, upgrades can enhance user experience and software performance and update software with the latest standards to ensure operational compliance. These kinds of advancements make upgrading software crucial to maximise inspection productivity.
The performance of the most durable, well-built CMMs can be held back by outdated software, and updates can help protect the business from upcoming challenges and changes. For instance, if one of a manufacturer’s most valued customers undergoes a major operational change, such as adopting new quality requirements or moving to a new CAD format, software updates are essential to achieve the interoperability that enables the manufacturer to meet these new demands and continue crucial business relationships.
When users need to update or extend their existing software, Hi-Tech Metrology offers software upgrade packages that ensure manufacturers can continuously evolve to meet their inspection requirements and keep pace with the evolution of dimensional control standards.
