PRE1388(2) MEASURLINK 8 SMALL TOOL INSTRUMENTS AND DATA MANAGEMENT MEASURLINK IS AN EASY-TO-USE, DATA COLLECTION AND REAL-TIME STATISTICAL PROCESS CONTROL SUITE.
2 MeasurLink is designed to collect and unite all measurement data in one central data base. Measurement results acquired via CMMs are automatically transferred into a SQL database and directly available for monitoring, analysis or reporting in real-time. MeasurLink gives you the performance you need through distributed processing. It delivers a safe and organised data warehousing system making quality data available for viewing and analysis by any member of the production, engineering, and managerial staff throughout your company. Inspection in the factory produces data for analysis, corrective action, and various reporting needs. As the backbone of your quality efforts, MeasurLink is guaranteed to reduce your production costs and increase profits. Data Analysis MeasurLink gives you the flexibility to analyse your processes, identify problem areas and take corrective action to improve your product’s quality. Inspection runs can be sorted by Inspection Station, Routine or Part, and are displayed with the look and feel of Windows Explorer. Inspection data can be merged, filtered, grouped, charted and printed in the way you want. MeasurLink8 Data Collec tion and Real-Time Statistical Process Control Data Collection MeasurLink enables you to connect and acquire data from virtually any measuring device. It supports the full range of metrology technology, including calipers, micrometers, indicators, CMMs, vision systems and more. Select the edition to fit the device and your needs.
3 Monotoring Real-time monitoring of data as it is collected. Provides the QC/Production Manager with the perfect tool to organise and maintain a shopwide quality program at a glance. Gauge Inventory and Calibration Control Gauge management is essential for monitoring the calibration history of a gauge. Periodic adjustments may be required to bring a gauge into specification. Measurement System Analysis Determines the repeatability and reproducibility, linearity, bias and stability of inspection systems, allowing you to isolate gauging problems.
4 FEATURES MeasurLink Real-T ime enables you to connect and acquire data from virtually any measuring device.

SPECIFICATIONS Order No. Description 64AAB471R MeasurLink 8 Real-T ime Professional Edition Note: Upgrade packages are also available. Please contact our sales department for details. MeasurLink Real-Time Real-Time Data Collec tion Module Filter data All data collected within a Real-T ime run is related. Often, especially for runs containing a large volume of subgroups, requests are made for subsets of data that are further related to the entire run’s population. MeasurLink provides robust filtering capabilities to comply with these requests. Import data When set up as a data source, import templates are readily available to the operator; or periodic imports can be executed. Impor t templates Easily create an impor t template that maps data in a tex t file to MeasurLink. Templates are saved to the database for ever yone to use and can be added as data sources to data collec tion stations. An impor t template can be verified against the source file without adding data to the system. Direct data transfer Collec t data into MeasurLink from Mitutoyo measuring systems running Mitutoyo sof tware that is MeasurLink enabled. This provides a tighter and more robust inter face than impor ting data from files.
5 3D view True three-dimensional model support with Hoops streaming files (.HSF). Export your part’s model from Catia, Solidworks or other CAD software and place callouts in 3D space. Flexible callout design Callouts provide part acceptability at a glance. You can design them the same way as for the two-dimensional view to include charts or statistical information with the ability to size any element inside the callout. Guided sequencing The display can automatically change during data collection to show the next or last observation point, providing simple, guided sequencing for the inspection procedure. By saving a different view for each characteristic to be inspected, you can have the model rotate, pan or zoom to show the operator details of the part. MeasurLink is designed to detect and display patterns and provide additional statistical information. Many patterns can be seen appearing on SPC charts, including: • Cycles • Trends • Freaks • Mixtures • Grouping or 'bunching' of measurements • Gradual change in level • Sudden shift in level • Instability (abnormally large fluctuations) • Stratification (abnormally small fluctuations) • Interactions (two or more variables acting together) • Systematic variation • Tendency of one chart to follow another Real-Time Professional 3D Edition Designed for customers who wish to collect data using Hoops 3D graphics view, in addition to all features offered by MeasurLink 8 Real-T ime Professional Edition. Hoops 3D files can be exported from most CAD systems and provides the operator with a real view of the part. Camera angle and position can be saved for each characteristic, which provides for an intuitive, prompt guided sequence for an inspector to follow. Supported data sources: keyboard, RS-232C and USB devices, native Mitutoyo integration (DDE), ASCII and QMD (xml-based) file import.

8 FEATURES Determines the repeatability and reproducibility, linearity, bias and stability of inspection systems, allowing you to isolate gauging problems. MeasurLink Gage R&R Measurement Systems Analysis Module Gage R&R Standard Edition These techniques provide information about a measurement system's reproducibility, repeatability, location or stability. Graphical tools allow for isolation of gauging problems including inconsistencies in technique between operators or inspectors. SPECIFICATIONS Order No. Description 64AAB477R MeasurLink 8 Gage R&R Note: Upgrade packages are also available. Please contact our sales department for details. Study types MeasurLink Gage R&R uses calculation methods based on AIAG's Measurement Systems Analysis, Four th Edition (commonly known as MSA 4). The following study t ypes are suppor ted: Location • Bias • Linearit y Reproducibilit y • Type I • Variable Range Method Repeatabilit y & Reproducibilit y • Crossed ANOVA • Crossed Average & Range • Nested ANOVA • Nested Average & Range Stabilit y • Stabilit y Study wizard User-guided study setup defines the study that needs to be performed in order to determine the measurement system’s capabilities. All elements required for the selected study to be completed are captured before the study is created, and the user is prompted to provide any missing information before beginning the study. Data input Data for the study can be collec ted direc tly from a gauge connec ted to the system or transferred from Mitutoyo Coordinate Measuring Machines or Vision and Form Measuring Systems via native integration (DDE). Users can also key in their data. Group studies All studies in the database are visible and can be organised using various criteria. Randomised collection sequence A s recommended by the academic communit y, the collec tion sequence can be automatically randomised. In addition to standard calculations, the sof t ware provides graphical tools for analysis of the measurement system. The Xbar and R char t can show whether there is adequate gauge discrimination to record par t-to -par t variation in produc tion and if operators are consistent. The Par t-by-Appraiser plot can show if there is a lack of consistenc y between operator inspec tion techniques.
