APEXBlade™ for Complex 5-Axis Path Planning
- Quick and easy programming of sweep scan blocks within part programs
- Collects significantly more blade data than cross-sectioning (a point cloud for each blade)
- Opportunity to return as many sections as required
- Data can be recalled for post production analysis
APEXBlade™ is a package designed to greatly speed up continuous 5-axis scan path production. It works by asking users to import nominal geometry – in this case of aerospace blades – and to select the blade to be measured. It then automatically determines the optimal 5-axis sweep scan path over the blade. The resultant DMIS part program is tailored to be imported into MODUS™, from where it can be executed.
